Speedometer needle went to zero

Postby barnold » Sun Oct 18, 2009 8:01 pm



While riding the speedometer went to zero and the odometer stopped working, didn't come back on. Any idea of the problem? Easy fix or do I need to take it to a shop? (1999 GL1500SE)

Also, which repair manual would be better, the Honda Service Manual or the Clymer one?

Well, the obvious answer would be the speedometer cable. However, it could be any component - the speedometer cable drive on the wheel, or something inside the speedometer itself. However, my guess would be the cable itself. Remove it from the back of the speedometer housing and see if it turns when the front wheel is turned.
