Speedo Down

Post by purplemotoman »



Hey everyone. I've been away from the forums for a couple years because my bike was down and I was out of work. I just put the bike back on the road 3 weeks ago and yesterday I had my first big issue.
The Speedo, Odometer and Trip Meter have quit working so I have a 2 part question...
A- Is the sensor on the forks repairable and
B- Has anyone tried one of the aftermarket digital Speedo/Odometer/Tach systems from overseas?
Thanks for any input. Cheers.

There is someone here who rebuilt one with new electronic parts that worked. You could also use one from a GL1200, as they are electrically compatible.

Thanks again. I'm running right now with my GPS for monitoring my speed but I'd like everything working again.

So today I got my part from Joneszy. Thanks brother. Turns out the white plastic piece inside the gear assembly on the front shaft has the 2 tabs broke off. Anyone know where I can get another one?
TIA.

Just was thinking that there is a guy in Owen Sound that I have dealt with on used Gl1100 parts. Fair prices and both times I just sent him a contact email and he was able to find what I needed including two horns from an 83 aspencade. Maybe he has the speedo drive mechanism from the front axle? He is at:

Maybe worth a try

Know somebody who can "print" one?
"thingiverse.com" has one listed..search "goldwing"...
Just a option...I've never printed one so I don't know what material to use but there's plenty of info about it.

Yes. I checked out the printed one for an 84 but was curious if the 83 is the same size piece or not.
