Speedo cable ends

Post  Jtpt2007 on Thu Mar 15 2012, 16:46

My cat has decided to eat another speedo cable! I'm now on my third in less than 12months so I am changing the drive aswel as the cable this time. What I need to know is which end fits in the drive and which end fits in the clock?
Thanks

Never had mine out (Ooh, missus) but from memory, the inner should come out of the top of the outer. There should be a circlip or something to stop it dropping down to the bottom.

Hope that makes sense.

Er - treat my earlier post with caution. By coincidence I've just been working on a Suzuki DRZ and that's the other way round, i.e. the collar on the inner is at the bottom so it only comes out downwards.

Hopefully someone who's done the job on a 'Cat recently can come along with the definitive answer.

Was the drive unit easy enough to replace? Whaty did it cost? Where from? I've just had my cable off only to find it's perfect.

BTW I went through several "cheap" cables myself and then bought the genuine part from Yamaha dealer for £11 and that's stilkl going strong.

I've done both Cable and Drive and althouth it can be fidly it's not difficult. If you have ever had the front wheel out then your half way there. Once the wheel is out then the drive just lift off (or may fall off once the wheel is out).

From the Yam Garage a Cable and Drive was £78.

The Full Service Manual in PDF I think gives a good exploded view.
Interestingly the cogs etc in the original Drive were plastic on mine but in the new one it was all metal.
