Can anyone help me? I remove the cable from the front wheel hub and all looks fine. I took a drill and made the cable spin and the speedometer climbed like it should. Therefore the cable and the dash part should be fine.

 

I then turned the front wheel as fast as I could and observed the part in the hub connection turning slowly. Everything looks fine but it still doesn't work. Of course now my turn signals don't automatically shut off.

 

Any ideas?

could be the speed drive in the hub .. about $6 still avail through the stealership... by special order of course.. and as long as the cable is connected at both ends it should run... I have the same issue right with my 1100 and have priced the piece at a local stealer.. says the problem occurs in the 1000 1100 and 1200 and he may have mentioned the 1500's but not sure about that one... I would call and ask your local and see what they can get for you..

Is that easy to replace?

You may have damage to the drive tongs on the speedo gear. An easy job to replace. You can check your wheel bearings at the same time.

 

Download the manual here.

You will find all the info needed to remove and replace the wheel.

I see he changed the site. Now he wants you to register first. Free, but still.

As long as your pulling apart down there, the bearings and seals are cheap at the stealership, and do not take long to replace.

If bearings are good, regrease, and seals are still cheap.

Of course, I work on the mindset, I only want to open up areas of the bike once, and while I am there renew/replace what I can while I am there.

The tongs look to be OK.
