Question about Yamaha XJ 650 Motorcycles
There is a few things that could possibly cause this. First try disconnecting the cable and spinning it without restriction from the speedometer. If you still get the noise I would recommend lubricating the cable. Even if this isn't the problem it is a good practice to lube on a monthly basis. You now have to diagnose if it is nternal to the speedo. Unhook the cable from the speed sensor and keep it hooked to the speedo. spin the cable slowly with a drill or by hand and see if you are getting noise still from your speedometer. If so I would say it is a gear or internal issue . If not it could be your speed sensor. These are pretty much the only problems that can cause this. I would start with the cable and try it first. It is the quicckest and easiest.
