Speedometer Hub Question

1986 Gl1200A.........after I removed the hub assembly, I could not rotate the inside of it more than about 1/4" either way. There are 2 nubs on the inside of the hub that would catch on the 2 **** on the wheel making the inside of the hub turn as the wheel turns.

Question is....Should you be able to rotate the inside of the hub freely by hand?

Thx, Jack

disconnect the cable and re-try. if it still fails then clean the drive with paraffin/kerosene or what ever and check for obstructions like worn or broken teeth or grit. If when you disconnect the cable the gear runs free, then look to the cable.... disconnect at the clocks try to turn the cable if it runs free then suspect the gears in the clock.

Also clean up the sensor. Remove the 4 screws shoot it contact cleaner and put a small film of grease on the rotating piece.

Yes it should turn freely and cause the output shaft to rotate.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Some info Jack didn't mention is; he says the wheel inside sending unit, or whatever it is, spins when the wheel is rotated. That, to me, indicates that the gear is driving the unit...right?

Is that clear as mud?

We have tried to get the screw out that holds the sending unit to the gear, but it aint budging.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Yes I would agree. Not knowing it was still together as an assembly. I was thinking tear down has been done and you were in inspection/ diagnostic stage.
If none of the clean up of pieces were done at last front tire service. No need
to keep spinning the wheel and wondering. One or BOTH is dry.

Thanks everyone..................looks like it's time to grind a slot in the screw head and try the blade driver.

Finally got the sending unit seperated from the hub.

Was able to turn the small wheel of the sending unit and got the speedometer display to work. Just have to find a hub and should be good to go.
