  • Speedo repair.

    The needle fell off my speed o meter. Can it be opened up some way so I can put the needle back on? Looks like it just came off the shaft that drives it.

    Yep. It happened on my old bike. Just remove the screws on the back of the plastic cover. Test the needle before you put it back together. Don't push it all the way on until you make sure it's aligned properly. Getting the alignment correct can be a little tricky because the dial does a test sweep every time you turn the key on. The first time I tried, I just put the needle next to the little post at zero MPH, but when I turned the key, after the needle did it's sweep, it stopped at 10mph and read +10 mph after that. So just plug it in and turn key before putting the cover back on. Test it a few times, because it might work the first time, and then later get stuck at a higher level. I Hope this makes sense.

      It does make sense, I have had it do that a few times and I just ignore it then after awhile it goes back to normal. Thanks for the info, I can look at it tonight.

        Glad you gave me the heads up about testing before putting back together, took 3 or 4 tries but it was an easy fix. Thank you
