    Lazy speedometer head

    Its not the cable "new" its not the drive gear "new". My speedo is lazy "slow at catching up to speed" but reads accurate on stable cruising speed. I'm guessing there is no quick fix for this. Something in the head isn't working proper. Time for a new speedo ??? worked 100% in the fall...

    Speedometer needed

    Need a speedometer and cable for an 85 VMax. Previous owner failed to inform me he had kinked the cable and tried straightening it out just before I bought it. On way home speedo started making LOTS of noise and quit working. Sent from my SM-N900P using Tapatalk

    Need a speedometer cable and sheath???

    I was backing the bikes out of their spots today for their weekly ride and the speedometer cable caught on the forward controls of the bike beside it. Twisted the cable 90 degrees. So when I got on the interstate I looked down to see the speedo was reading 00.00 MPH. I'm sure I could get one...

    Speedometer graphics

    Does anyone out there know who or where to get a a new background for the speedometer on a factory unit ? Mine is old and kinda faded and I'd like to find one that's possibly got a Carbon Fiber look to it ? Also can it be disassembled to replace the background? ? I tried searching around...

    Can't figure out what the heck is wrong with speedometer

    Bought an 86 last week and the speedometer/tach doesn't work- lights up, though. I drill spin the cable and the speedo mph works. So I assume the problem has to be the speedo drive on front wheel. Have extra one, so I replace it. Nothing appears to be damaged. Still doesn't work. SOMEBODY...

    Speedometer Question

    I've never looked into aftermarket speedos - do you guys have an idea whether this part will be compatible with the Vmax? http://www.ebay.com/itm/360895880224? Are speedometers universal? Thanks!

    Speedometer stop working

    Just installed new batt & R1 R/R & took it for a ride, checking on the charging system & all is well now. Noticed the needle on the speedometer started bouncing & just went to 0 mph. Anybody have any suggestion before I tear into it

    mini speedometer / odometer?

    Hi! I finally decided to move the giant tach to the center of the cowl, and want to get rid of the large speedometer. I`d simply kick it out but that would leave me without the odometer, which is a bit tricky on a vmax with its huge fuel tank :rofl_200:. So, does anyone know of a gen1 compatible...

    Speedo error with 130/60R18 on front?

    I installed the new 18" wheels and tires, and now the speedo seems to be way off. (No way am I going as fast as it reads!) Can anyone help me to determine the percentage of error I am getting, and how to resolve it, running a 130/60R18 up front? Thank you in advance!

    Please help me if you can..

    ..I desperately need to find a speedometer for my 2000 Vmax, but it MUST be in kilometers/hour, not mph. I just found out that my bike is still not going through Australian 'compliance' because of this silly speedo. Apparently they've ordered it over 3 weeks ago from an Australian company that...
