Someone know whats up with my speedo? At cruising speeds and during deceleration, and maybe even while accelerating it bounces around like the fuel gauge in a damn boat. Then when it really wants to show off it also makes a sort of buzzing / whining sound to accompany its stupid little dance. I'm not sure of the originality of the cable but it has a little sort of top-hat shaped adapter pin for the dash end. What do you guys think?

In the past when I have experienced this problem, pulling the cable out of the jacket & oiling it has fixed it. If it gets worse, it could strip the teeth off the speedo gear. Its also possible the cable is shot. Check the cable & look for frayed areas or corrosion. If it looks good, clean & oil it. Keep us updated

Thanks for the idea. The cable looks to be O.K. from the outside so I'll give it a little lube and let you know how things go.

yeah use a quality gear oil so you won't be doing it again too soon.
