Post by CharlieB on Sun Dec 27, 2009 11:55 am

The girl that bought my 50 is having a prob with the speedo! its completly fucked!! had a look and all connexions look good and tight, but you can go down road about 30mph and speedo is only reading 5mph, anyone had this problem? is it common and can it be fixed easily?

cheers

Check the whole speedo cable for breaks, by taking it out the sleeve.

Now, unplug the cable at the back of the dials, keep the other end screwed in the speedo drive.

Now, push the bike forward slowly, you should see the cable turning/feel it.

If it doesn't turn or it does it every now and again, then its the speedo drive.

But surely its her problem, as its a perishable item that doesn't last the lifetime of the bike?
