Typically the upper and lower half of the speedo and tach are held together with a metal band that is folded over the lips of the two halves. to separate you will have to carefully cut the band (usually on the bottom,towards you), peel it of trying not to kink it(save for later) and two halves should easily separate. Clean, lubricate,screw,etc. Put band back on, put a spot of glue at cut seam (only)and carefully wrap band with tape( electric works good)to hold speedo band and halves together.

follow speedo cable to the transmission ,it should screw on at that point. next take out 1 bolt for y shaped hold down fork and check for a stripped speedometer gear , its plastic pull it straight up and out if teeth are missing check the gear in transmission connected to that one. also since its apart try turning the cable while someone watches it, if it turns smoothly then its ok just replace transmission gear.and reinstall cable. if it makes the speedo jump or turns roughly replace cable as well.your local auto parts stores should have these, if not I know the dealers will.

MY HARLEY FAT BOY 2002 SPEEDOMETER FACE NEEDS TO REPLACED


You're better of to simply purchase a new speedo. There are places that can replace the face in your speeometer but this work is expensive. The service is primarily for restoring antique speedometers. Just buy a new speedo.

Good Luck

Speedometer not working on 2002 Suzuki Volusia VL800. Need to fix soon any suggestions? Response greatly appreciated ASAP


Hi there!

I hope i responded quickly. The speedometer needle movement is caused by the speedometer cable that runts to your front wheel's gear unit. Check for the cable that goes near the axle of your front wheel and check that its properly screwed. Put the bike on stand and spin the wheel, if it still doesnt responed. Remove the cable, unscrew it near the front wheel axle first and try spinning the small "squared wire" inside, if you still can't get any action on the speedometer. Then chances are either your speedometer cable is cut in the middle or the speedometer display is jammed (unlikely). Remove the cable from the speedometer unit and check that it is freely rotating. Oil it and put back.
Next, we need to check for the gear near the axle of your front wheel. Screw the speedometer cable to the gear unit near the axle with the other end removed from the speedometer unit. Spin the wheel and check that the inner cable is responding or spinning.. If it doesnt, then your speedometer gears are worn out. Disassemble the front wheel and bring the gear assembly to the nearest parts dealer for purchase. Normally, they don't sell a repair kit so you'll need to purchase the whole gear assembly.

whichever the case, either you purchase a speedometer cable or the gear unit. Seldom will the speedometer unit be destroyed.

pardon me for not organizing this response as you were requesting a quick solution .. so i answered as quick as i could... hehe. Hope this helps!

The cable will attatch to the back of the speedo, and attatch at the front wheel. You should have a speedo spacer installed on the left side of the rim ( between the tire and the front left fork leg ) . It screws into the spacer. then there is a little locking set screw to hold the cable from unscrewing itself.

Speedometer cable


unscrew other side as well at back of speedo ..pull it out that way...also if damaged it wont pull through.. cut broken end off and then pull through.....worst case it has come apart (the inner square ended cable you are replacing)..and you need to replace the whole speedo assembl;y with case and cable ..good luck

MY SPEEDOMETER ON MY 90 INTEGRA DNT WORK.....


rpm is a sensor on your engine.  Speedo comes off the tranny or transfer case.  Some speedos are digital and some are cables.  The digital ones- take out the old sensor and spice on a new one and screw it back it.  Here is the matching part
