Odometer issues HELP!

Recommended Posts

Okay. I've noticed that my odometer is only reading a fraction of the miles it should be. I checked the wire that screws onto the back of the computer (the one like a coaxial cable on your cable tv) and tightenned it. It's better but not where it should be still. Any other ideas? Running out of gas when your odo shows only 45 miles sucks. :)

I don't have an "S" so I'm shooting in the dark here. That cable you refer to is a mechanical speedometer cable driven by a gear drive on the right side of the wheel. Speedometer cables get broken. Take both ends loose and pull out the inner core and see if it is OK. If OK, grease it up and slide it back in. Then re-install the cable making sure the inner core engages the drives on both ends. Have you had the front wheel off? You may not have the speedo drive gear box properly engaged with the front wheel. Check it out.
