600 Monster Speedo

Hey people


My girlfriend's 96' Monster has a lazy speedo. It registers about 20% less than actual speed (and distance) up to about 50mph then doesn't go any higher. 
I've changed the cable as it was looking a bit ragged and it made no difference so i was wondering if it's likely to be a problem with the speedo itself or with the drive..?

Hi Meatbingo

I'm inclined to agree with KCMC.

Was the cable dry or lubricated when you removed the inner?

The cable was quite oily when i removed it..

The bike had been stood for a year or two and i had the forks out to change the oil and seals before putting it back on the road so i was sort of concerned that i had done something to the drive in refitting it..

Hi meatbingo

First as you had the front wheel out prior to your problem then it is prudent to recheck that the work has been done correctly.

With the cable being oily (not having seen the amount) it is possible that oil has got into the speedo mechanism and reduced the clocks working speed.
