GL1100 front wheel speedometer part name

Post by Stevenanos »



Greetings,
So I need to purchase the part on the front wheel that works the speedometer, but have no idea what it is called. It's a 1980 GL1100.
I have installed a new cable and spun it with a drill( thanks to AWESOME advice from this site) and the speedometer itself is working. It's the part on the wheel that's bad.

Best of luck with that- I had to buy a used unit (housing and gear), there's no such thing as a replacement gear....but if you find out where to get it, let me know!

I appreciate very much the information. This will be of great help when I am able to research it.
I will certainly keep you updated if I am able to just get the gear.

Thanks again! Love this site.
