Question about Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard Motorcycles
How to replace a speedometer cable on a 1989 Harley Davidson FLHS
Underneath the speedometer head is a knurled nut.It SHOULD unscrew by hand, but after 24 years, you may need a pair of pliers.At the other end of the cable is a nut, unscrew with a wrench.
When installing new cable, start at lower end.
You'll probably need to turn inner cable by hand to line up end of cable with receptacle in drive unit, then tighten nut.
At top end, install into speedo head unit, and tighten knurled nut.
You might want to grease cable before installation.
Inner cable should pull out of outer sheath housing from the top.
Grease all of inner cable EXCEPT for top (where it goes into speedo head) 6", so grease doesn't get into speedo head and gum up the works!
