Speedometer

What would cause the needle on the speedometer to move from side to side and not show me the speed I'm going while I'm driving.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Cable hanging up inside the sheath.
Either has a kink or needs greased.

Can I take the cable apart or do I need to replace.

You can pull it out of the sheath, see if the grease is old, dry. Possibly flush it out, regrease it, slip it back in.

Also caused by wear in the cable and loss of rigidty of the inner core and inappropiate routing with bends of less than 6" radius.

As said can be taken apart and regreased but use a lithium white grease and wipe off the last few inches. This MAY help.

If all else fails a new one is $10-$15. Just measure for the right one!

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
