hi bike people, my speedo is not working. A local bike shop told me it was the box assy at the tire but that is not it. they gave me one but it was wrong so I took the old one off and took it apart cleaned and inspected it the cable is good but when I spin the wheel with the cable off the box shaft dose not turn. has anyone had a problem with the gear box retainer in the wheel by the bearing? help:?

The part you are talking about is called speedometer drive if it don't turn its junk its that simple. Take a good look at it where it meets the wheel there should be tabs on it that lock into the wheel, its a pretty simple system no rocket science here. Send me a pic of the wheel side and I'll let you know if its junk! if you need one I should have one..good luck

Sounds as if theGearBox Retainer is broken. It is a washer with two prongs that align with the gear box assembly unit.

I have known of a few to wear out. It is an inexpensive part that Honda has or can order. Take the wheel back off and look to see if it is intact. It rests against the bearing seal. Don't forget to replace the dust seal also.

Actually, the two related parts are "speedometer gear box" and "gear box retainer" in the Honda Shop Manual and parts list.
