Speedometer gaining speed

Post by mikie 1954 » Mon Aug 08, 2016 6:58 pm



I have a 1983 GL1100I that I have had to replace the speedo gear on the front wheel, I replaced the cable and housing , it has been working great until the other day now it gaining speed. Is there something electric in the speedometer that would cause this? I would think that a bad cable or broken gear would slow it down not gain speed.
