First topic message reminder :

After a mere 14 years of ownership the Thundercat has let me down...on the way to work today the speedo stopped working! The bike is only 16 years old and has developed a fault already....I am shocked and stunned Smile

Now when I see my name mentioned I may hesitate to respond for fear of it being a generic post.
Yes, everyone EDIT: DID see their own username . . . However the offending link has been extracted to stop any alarm. So now there should be no fear of a sudden rush of generic posts mate  left thumb up  . . . And as the hitch hikers guide to the Galaxy clearly says in big cuddly letters  Don\'t Panic

Bugger ! . . . . I'd better go extract all the quoted links before we have a mass exodus or multiple spam post reports. Talk about backfire sad

Anyway, back on topic. The new cable is gong to cost over £10!, thats nearly £0.72 per year in unplanned costs...disgraceful!

I would hope that they would repair the bike FOC with a failure on a bike a mere 1.5 decades old!!

Well at least my 2 bikes are not cable driven, so that will save me a tenner each , when there 15 years old.

So far, nothing but consumables of the normal sorts......

Unlike my Honda go-ped which has had 3 speedo cables and a new speedo drive in 70k

That is utterly disgraceful durability Tony  Wink 

I'm an expert on broken speedo's (the clocks not swimwear  Rolling Eyes ), maybe your bike spent too much time close to mine and learnt some tricks.
Most likely the pick up drive, followed by the clutch meter (as Billy says) .
