Encountering some problems with the speedometer. The pointer is 'all over the place' when speeds exceeds 70km/hr or when accelerating 'fast'.
I'm pretty sure it started when I changed the front wheelbearings and steering head/stem bearings. The past weeks I spent checking the front end. No mistakes there.
What I've checked:
- Wear on cable
- Order of parts correct
- Direction of part correct
- No visible wear on drive unit nylon? gear
- Free play between cable and drive unit.
- Cable end square and can't be turned when drive unit is manually blocked.
To exclude a defect in the speedometer itself I connected the speedometer cable to a powerdrill. Nice and steady up to 140km/hr. (Drill won't turn faster)
Before I pull the front off again to use a custom made part to 'power' the driver unit like the speedometer clutch does, what else can I check?
Sure, it can be a coincident that an issue with the speedometer itself occured at the same time as i was working on the bike... but for now I don't believe that. Especially after the powerdrill test.
All advice and possible causes are welcome!
