<Speedo Cable
« on: July 20, 2020, 09:56:14 PM »
Hi brains trust - for my 1984 R65 would someone put up a photo or 2 of the correct routing of the speedo cable.
.
Amongst the 400 or so strip down photos at the start of the restoration there isn't one showing the correct position of the speedo cable.
.
Why do I need this some may ask? The Acewell is too small for me & difficult to read so I'm having both clocks restored to return the bike back to standard. Fortunately I didn't change the original wiring & plugs.
.
Thanks for the help.....

There was always the possibility that in the future - if I sold the bike the new owner would want to put it back to original.
.
So I adapted the Acewell wiring - again without cutting the wires short - using individual electrical pins for the Tacho plug and pigyback spades where necessary for the rest.
.
So now I have a virtually unused Acewell 2853 for sale  ;)
