Hello all. Bike is a 1984 Aspencade. I've had it about a month...still working the
bugs out. About 58,000 miles showing. I noticed today that theodometer (the analog one on the left side of dash) is not working. It has been working, but not now. I took it for a quick ride just to see if the speed I was going had any effect. Didn't seem to matter. The tenth indicator moved about 1/2 click. Does this indicator get its input from the didital speedo? I looked it over good and all I am seeing is the wire and pick-up going to the front wheel for the speedo. I sure would like for this to work to make keeping up with oil change etc. easier. Any help will be appreciated...Thanks...shydog

shydog,

I have seen this question come up in the past. Seems like the answer was to look on ebay for a used one. From what I understand they are not repairable. Maybe someone will have a better idea!

Pretty much like Bob said, most likely you'll have to replace it. If you want a cheap mileage indicator just to keep track of miles for maintenance it's not too hard to adapt a digital bicycle speedo, they track mileage. You could hide it in a fairing cubby. Since it's not working why not take it out and see what's what with the thing. If it's already kaput you can't hurt it. Maybe get lucky. I think these things have a little relay with an armature that ratchets on a pawl to step them along with pulses from the speedo unit or the speedo pickup.

Thanks for the input. The bicycle digital speedo idea sounds good. For now, I'll just write my mileage down from the trip meterwhen I gas up and keep up with it that way. Thanks again...
