    Jumping Speedo Needle

    as the title would suggest, my speedo needle jumps around like a madcunt.
    I can be doing ~80 and it's not abnormal for it to drop my speedo reading down to 0-40 (jumping between the 2) and sometimes 60.
    I recently took the speedo cable off from the dash end...it has some grease on/in there so is it fair to say it should be lubricated sufficiently??
    Also, if I want to remove the cable from the bike completely to replace it, is it just as simple as unbolting it from the engine case end or do I need to drop the oil??
    I'm going to assume that the cable itself bolts into a gear drive (can't think of the right word here) sort of thing...is it possible this is no good anymore, or is it likely to just be my cable up the shit causing the speedo problems??

    RE: Jumping Speedo Needle

    I had the same problem with my bike.
    For me it was the the thing that's connected to the speedo cable that goes to the front sprocket
    this thing


    I took the cable and thing off and I was able to turn the bottom end while I held the speedo cable still
    I got a new one from Honda and it was all good

    RE: Jumping Speedo Needle

    i had the same problem last week.
    The white nut was completely round. ordered a new genuine nut from Sydney city motorcycles for $16 including postage.
    problem solved.

    RE: Jumping Speedo Needle

    i too have this issue above 100kmph and then it'll slip for the rest of the day quite often.

    will try lube.

    the bolt and the end-bit arent rounded or anything though *just checked*.

    try lubing the cable first before you go looking for more complex problems

    RE: Jumping Speedo Needle

    i went straight to the speedo nut (nylon one pictured) when mine started this, replaced it, never happened again. it only takes 5 mins to check it out.

    RE: Jumping Speedo Needle

    Mine was doing the same thing, turned out to be a loose battery connection...!

    EDIT: actually, thinking back, might have been my rev counter that was jumping around, I cant remember...
