Speedometer

Anyone know if there is a way to disassemble the speedometer on a 84 standard gl1200. I have the chrome piece off the rear but would like to get to the interior to lube and see if there is something wrong, it doesn't work. I have hooked a drill to a new cable and spun it both ways and get no MPH readings. Any help, including can't do it, would be helpful.

You can get it apart but not back together and probably not fixable anyway.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

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

You could say the same thing about children.

I took the one off my CB550 apart, adjusted it and got it back together. However, it showed afterword.

Got it working I think, worked with a drill. Lubed it as best as I could and hooked it up. I hope it continues to function. Thanks for the advice.

You can cut off the chrome ring holding the 2 halves together and then use this chrome kit to put it back together. With or without the chrome bezel.
