Dead Speedo

Recommended Posts

Speedo finally died.

Happened 10ks after leaving home on trip to Dunedin weekend before last

It had been swinging wildly for a while so it was no surprise.

Solution seems to be replace with new from Speedhut or get repalred.

There is company called Parrots here in Christchurch that I know have repaired another V11 speedo with same problem.

Can you get the parts to repair them yourself?

I’ve found the video on youtube which gives some idea of what’s involved Motoguzzi V11 Sport Rosso Mandello 2001 Overhaul of speedometer and tachometer - YouTube

Did the fellow in the video only clean and lubricate it? No parts required?

How many kilometers has yours gone, @cash1000?

I like the positive outlook:)

The failure is not in the angle drives (especially the lower one at the gearbox), or the cable?

I've just replaced speedo cable & run with & without angle drives & speedo still misbehaving (Posted a couple of weeks ago)

But to eliminate possibility will disconnect speedo from speedo cable and run bike.

If cable still turns its the speedo?

Done that. Its the Angle Drive that's broken. 

It didn't appear to be a month ago when I fitted new speedo cable.

Must have been in process of failing

Many thanks Doc for pointing me in right direction.

Also found out I was fitting speedo cable the wrong way around :wacko:

Stumbled across fitting instructions when looking for new angle drive

Yet to refit cable so fingers crossed it will solve speedo - tomorrow nights job
