Speedometer -> Tacho
it awful, when the speedometer break down on a nice trip ? Not that we have to
know how fast we are, but with reference to the speedcontrols by the police,
sometimes itīs important to know. In spite of the low fuel consumption it may
be good to know, how far you can still drive.
the brake off is on itīs way, you can notice by a flicker of the
Speedometer-needle and then it happens : the needle doesnīt move anymore. The
break off of the speedometer is not ever because of a defect Tacho-Shaft. What
can it still be ? In the frontwheel [Link
26K] there is a transmission plate [Mitnehmerplättchen (7)]. This part is
the drive between frontwheel and the endless screw gear that drives on the
fact of the innumerable Miles we drive around, the Pinīs on this transmission
plate will wear out and so the endless screw gear will not work or works
to replace the transmisson plate. This sparepart is on sale only by the HONDA
dealer. No fear, it is not so expensive ! Itīs worth it to buy once more.
replace the dust gasket [Staubdichtung (13)]. Be careful when you remove the
dust gasket ! The transmission plate can be removed by hand. Put in the new one,
also but carfully the dust gasket and READY. Donīt forget to lubricate the
endless screw !

problem of the Xl is, that often the speedometer is braking off, because the
transmission plate into the speedometer gear lost itīs both teeth (Pins).
me and for many years and tens of thousands Kilometers is following operate:
speedometer gear box contained a cogwheel which is drive on by the
transmission plate and an endless screw, that transmit the rotation to the
forces inside the gearbox causes that the cogwheel drift apart from the
insert a cooper ring ( built by yourself, take a wire with a diameter of 1,5 mm
and solder it the diameter of the ring should be the same as of the cogwheel)
behind the cogwheel, so the theeth of the transmission plate reach into the
cogwheel all time.
the cogwhell, clean all parts, stuff MoS2-lubricate into the gearbox, insert the
cooper ring, cogwheel on top and fit the speedometer gearbox to the wheel.
