Two or three things to consider when replacing a speedo cable. length ... if too long, you'll have to do something with the excess, and it may kink. routing.. if you route the cable along the wrong path, it can bind, or get damaged as you turn the handlebars back and forth .. lubrication. You need a very light coating of lubricant, not a big slurp. Just enough to get it 'wet' with grease should be adequate. Heavy lube will add to the force needed to turn the cable inside the sheath. placement in the cluster housing... interference or bending as you plop the cluster back in place after connecting to the 'business' side of the speedo can cause premature failure. You cannot buy a cable stretcher as far as I know, but OTOH, if you have too much excess, you have to route it with nice easy bends or arcs. You can try spinning the cable from the drive hub manually to see if it spins freely, and you don't hear noises. Re-arcing the curves may make any noise less, or more loud, so move it around as you see fit. You also want the gear in the drive hub to be lightly lubed. tom
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done. simplificate & add lightness
