    Wacky Wonky Speedo

    Been through quite a few hwy construction zones on my K1200S and today the speedo needle started dancing all about. Iím wondering if the cable got pinched within the sheathing as I cannot find any cuts. Thoughts anyone?

    Dry, dirty, rusty cable. Take the cable apart, clean and lube it. Good chance it will cue the problem.

    I don't think the K1200S has a speedometer cable.

    As a matter of fact it is
    The hack is amazing, I picked it up and drove it home , over three thousand easy miles,(the bike is actually in Kms), then I recently rode it to Couer díAlene in Idaho for the USCA Rally. All with no troubles. Hopefully Iíll get it to a dealer soon and get it sorted out
