    I did go through a few speedo cables too.

    I must have been going too fast ...
    Nap just crap quility. I went through a few on my GSX750EZ in the 50,000 odd kms I had that. In comparison non in the 90,000kms I've done on my CB550. Unsure of the 72,000kms before I got it though.

    Not really my problem ...
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    My GS1000s was (supposed to be) an '81 model. But the model varied a bit over the years it was built. The speedo was a bit common to all (most ??) models.

    that's not worth a cunt full of cold snow as the 1979 GS1000SN had the dash set up while the GS1000ST from 1980 had the standalone instruments

    Part # = 34101-49080
    Part Description = SPEEDOMETER ASSEMBLY
    Model Count = 1

    And the 1981 had the dash set-up as well.

    Two of the bikes I've owned. A 1979 GS1000e and a 1981 GS1000s. Both had identical speedo/Taco setups. That's me in the Thailand T-shirt. Singapore 1981 (NZ Army Dieppe Barracks).

    the dash set up i meant is like a car where the instruments are merged into the fairing, whereas the bikes yu're talking of have an instrument cluster that is the same set up with or without the fairing

    speedo....

    Hi guys,
    Sorry, been a while since I was here. Have got another speedo through a Chch fellow biker, and had the original re-repaired by Parrotts.
    Agree there are 2 styles on GS thous. Mine is a ST, so has the 2 guage type. (same as most GS1000). The SN has a dashboard.
    Anyway, all sorted, but really appreciate the debate that's been going on!! Thanks, too, Jellywrestler.
