1983 Gl 1100 Speedo Problem

Post by coolhandsbob » Thu Aug 04, 2011 9:14 pm

My speedo quit today I have removed the cable and checked the speedometer head it works , cable doesn't seem to be broken . When I remove the cable on the end that goes into the sending unit it had a slot in the end that looked like a ( U ) . In that slot was a small piece of flat metal that was flush with end of cable . I turned the front wheel while observing the output from sending unit a small round piece was seen turning . I suspect the piece I found in the end of the cable has broken off the piece coming out of the sending unit . I tried pulling on the little end coming out of sending unit but It doesn't come out . If anyone has had this problem or can shed some light on my problem it would be appreciated . I think I need a new sending unit . Then I need to figure out how to remove chrome disk brake covers . Help with that would also be great ( think I got to remove the wheel to get the covers off but not sure .
