Speedo operation

Post by gollfy »

Hi All,

I am running different wheels so have had to remove the front caps which has made the speedo cable inop. I have managed to lock into place with a piece of metal but would love to know if there is a more permanent solution that anyone knows about that can be purchased?

Little gob of silicone from a mastic gun where the Square Speedo cable goes through the grease cap will seal out the water and stop it rusting. Keeps bearings happy aswell

I hope you don't mean you have removed the grease caps altogether?
