SOURCE: speedometer cable

First: you unscrew the cable housing assembly from the back of the speedomiter housing.

Second: you pull the speedomiter cable from the housing.

If the cable is broken inside the housing you must unscrew the housing from the spedomiter adaptor on the front axle,. at this point you should be able to pull the broken end from the adaptor with a pair of pliersif you can't pull it at this point you will have to pull the front axle and take the adaptor out and try to remove the broken end.

I hope this helps.

If your unit is cable driven, get yourself an old piece of cable and insert it up into the speedo and then spin the cable while watching. If the needle jumps its pretty much assured the speedo head is ok and that your problem is in the cable or in the front wheel. Bill

SOURCE: will a HARLEY DAVIDSON FXSTD tank fit a 883c

Cool idea, that's a great looking tank. I am not positively sure but I don't think this is going to be a bolt on part with no mods to the tank. The easy part may be the mounting brackets. You can have them relocated by an experienced welder using your existing tank as a guide. The big problem may be in the fitting. It may be too long to fit between your steering head and your seat and/or it may sit too low and rest on your rocker covers (the tunnel looks pretty high). I'd bet it's going to be impossible for you to put your hands on a tank to see if it will fit but you may be able to measure one. Get the length from front to back, from frame to top (at the front) and from the top of the tunnel to the bottom of the tank. If it will fit on your frame all you may need to do is a little welding.

99 Harley Mechanical speedometer does not work: odometer and trip meter work


If it's a mechanical and the odometer and trip meter are still running, the speedometer head is bad and the only thing you can do is replace it. There are places that "restore" speedometers but they are geared towards the restoration of speedometers for older bikes. It's very expensive to get one restored and you'll be better off to simply replace the speedo. There's no way to get inside the speedo and then reseal it when you're done on the late model units.

Good Luck
