Here I go again. I realized that the speedometer-odometer cable is not working. The needle of the speedometer does not move on the gauge, nor the odometer. I took out the cable, I lubricated an reinstalled at the gauge. Also I check the other end of the cable, and it looks fine.
Anyone knows why is not working. Thank you. If I need a new cable, Where I can get it? :???:
Thank you. Emilio.

If the cable is intact, your drive may be fooked. You gotta pull the front wheel and take a look at the speedo drive. Hopefully it will just be needing greasing. Also check every few thou.

I've had the problem with mine. The speedo drive is in pieces; however, I was able to reassemble enough to work for a while. Now; though, my tripmeter and speedometer are acting up again and I am in the market for a new used assembly.

Ok.
I took the wheel out, I checked the the speedo drive, It was intact. I cleaned the speedo and I lubricated it . The speedometer was not working because the little tips of the drive ring speedometer were too flat and did not engage in the speedodrive. I lifted the tips of the ring with a plier and problem solved. :hammer:
