The needle on my speedo randomly shoots up beyond the actual speed every now and then Any way of resolving this ?
Hi, Mark - since you said 'needle' spikes, I'm pretty sure you're talking about an early year model LT. There is a known issue with the speedo/cc wire that feeds into the final drive on those models. There is a brake line ferrule above the swing arm that rubs thru the insulation of the wire(s) that go to the speedo and then causes intermittant oscillation/spiking of the speedo, as well as disabling of the CC at that moment. The fix is to remove the cable tie nearby and open the wires to see where the break is (it'll be at the insulation opening), and then solder those back up and either electric tape secure it, or better yet, use heat shrink material to protect the area. Loosely install a new cable tie nearby and you should be good to go.markmoloney said:The needle on my speedo randomly shoots up beyond the actual speed every now and then Any way of resolving this ?
