Tachometer Cable for Honda CB500K / CB550K / CB550F Motorcycles
Is your tachometer needle bouncing, sticking, or not working at all? The tachometer cable could be the culprit. It's mechanically responsible for driving the tachometer on the Honda CB500K / CB550K / CB550F, and issues like sticking, breakage, or kinking over the years can impair its function. If you're experiencing tachometer issues, a replacement cable might be the solution. Don't forget to check the speedometer cable as it operates similarly.
Ensure each end of the cable is properly seated before installation, and apply a dab of light grease to both ends. Remember, the screw on the drive end of the cable on the engine side must be fully removed for the cable to be detached and replaced.
