Title: VF1000F2 speedo flicking around and reading high
Post by: Hoges on December 06, 2017, 09:34:21 pm
Hi all.

My 85 VF1000F2 speedo is bouncing around all over the place, and if it remains steady whilst underway will like be showing double the speed the bike is doing at the time.  Not to sure whether its a bad signal or the speedometer is on the way out.

Any thoughts as to why its doing this?

you speedo cable is faulty
the wheel drive is mechanical so its not that
clocks are very reliable in my opinion
