SPEEDOMETER CABLE UPDATE KIT: V11 SPORT V11 LEMANS

Recommended Posts

Hrmm, I may have to look into that as a cost effective proactive item as I rehab mine in the coming months.  I've already started a stockpile of little parts.

My original angle drive hasn't yet come apart, but it's been sitting for years and based on reports seems to be almost inevitable. 

 

Anyone have any experience with this MG Cycle part?

I was busy spending money while the wallet was still smoldering and seen this on their site. I remember reading that quite a few people were having issues.. and this is listed as a “new product” sharing is caring...

I would think that is a replacement cable for the early V11s  using angle drives and the white face Veglia. While the angle drives are nefarious for various failures, I don't recall the early cables being an issue. Replacement angle drives are available through MG cycle, IIRC.

Later V11 with black face ITI instruments have "bent-tube"  cable ends that eliminate the sketchy angle drives. These cables have been known to fail fairly routinely.

I would be uncertain that this replacement cable would clear the throttle linkage without the angle drive or the "bent-tube." :huh2:

No idea without someone testing, but here is the description from MG Cycle, which suggests it is designed to fit:

Thanks, Al! So, definitely for early V11. Interesting idea to eliminate the angle drive.

It's all about whether there is reliable clearance for the throttle rod . . .
