Mine was also jumping, even after changing the cable....until is stopped completely. A new speedo drive gear " gear box retainer" in Honda-speak, and all is well.
In the front wheel parts fiche, it's number 8. I also picked up the dust seal in case I destroyed it while removing it, but it came out just fine.

I don't mind changing 30 year old cables.....they're going to fail eventually. Doing my clutch cable this weekend.
