1984 Speedometer information needed

Post by zimco » Fri May 04, 2012 9:51 am

I am trying to get a 1984 GL1200 going for a fellow rider on the cheap.

The bike was crashed and the wiring was trashed before he acquired it.

My problem is this, the bike came with a speedometer cable that turns in the clockwise direction.

All of the speedometers I have are from 1975 - 1979 GL1000's and they turn in the counter clockwise direction.

I have also a blue face one that I can't test because it is frozen up, the rest are green or black face and turn in the wrong direction.

I need to know if any speedometers, from any other years, that are the old fashioned stand alone type, turn clockwise.

It seems that all I see are the speedometers in the square console type of dash board in the newer bikes.

The speedometer I need has to fit into the 1975 - 1979 speedometer/tachometer frame, and turn clockwise.

any help is appreciated.
