    My Honda Shadow speedometer has started making a groaning
    noise above about 45 MPH. I don't have any idea that lubricating
    it will fix it, but I'd like to try. The only way I can see to get
    it apart is to cut the ring that holds the glass on. Not a problem,
    but putting it back together will be an issue...
    Ideas?
    Thanks, mike
    Yes, I did lube the cable. New speedo works fine on the old cable.
    Yes, I really do want to take apart the old speedo...AND put it back
    together.

    I don't know about the Shadow, but some people have gotten the ring off the
    Sportster speedo by carefully working up the bead that is rolled over to
    hold it on, and then recrimping it. Kind of a slow process, and it's
    usually just to glue the needle back on the shaft, but the price of a new
    one makes it worthwhile.

    Recrimping the bezel is almost impossible, the instrument will look like
    crap afterwards.
    Also the speedo will fog up and become useless unfortunatly.
