DR 650 Speedometer cable replacement
« on: August 21, 2018, 11:18:03 am »
Hi Guys,
just to confirm,thre is nothing funny in replacing the cable? The top just screws onto the speedo it self and the bottom , loosen the screw, stick in the cable, tighten the screw?

Is that correct?

Sounds fine to me. ;)

You may open the speedo drive at the front axle. Firstly remove the dust seal, then the white plastic gear, clean/inspect, grease and put everything together again. :thumleft:

The white plastic gear tends to run dry on the metal bush. :o
