I have a '64 V90 and the speedo jumps all over the place. I have checked the speedo and it works fine. I have also taken both sides of the cable off and retightened them but the problem still remains. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a new cable for it. I looked on Scooter Works' website but I couldnt find anything except a whole cable set. Does anyone know where I can just get the one cable?

Thanks!

Jumpy and wildly innacurate speedometers are par for the course on old scoots. There may be nothing wrong at all or it could be the gears on the hub or the speedo itself are worn.

If you want accurate speed measurement get a GPS because even at their best vespa speedos are mostly for looks.

It's worth trying to lube it some before replacing. A dry cable can add to the normal jumpiness.

The spedo was brand new not too long ago. The problem started when I was riding in colder weather and I hoped that it would go away with winter. I used a silicon lubracant on the ends, but is there something else I should lube? Before this the speedo did not jump at all.

If you can, pull the entire inner out of the outer. Is it just dry, or rusty and corroded? If it's really bad, you probably need to replace it.

Clean it up with a degreaser. Coat the entire length with lithium grease, don't goop it too heavily.

If you can't pull it out, spray a bunch your silicone in both ends & see if you get any improvement. Bike stores sell cable lube also.
