VBB Speedo questions
by: Melody ( on March 04, 2000 at 18:26:53

Hi all....

I got a new speedo for Christmas from my sweet boyfriend.... and I was going to wait to get a hold of my mechanic to install it, but he is nowhere to be found.... The speedo is a repro, so there are new attachments involved.... so with a little help and that lovely article about changing speedo housings in Scoot!Quarterly, I was able to get it installed as best as I could. So far the odometer works, but I couldn't figure out how to get the electrical part of it working. There is a yellow wire that runs from the speedo that I assume needs to hook into a blue wire (that has a plastic thing on the end) that runs together with a yellow wire into the driving light of the headlight. But the end of it is clipped off... (I assume...) The speedometer needle doesn't move, obviously.... Does it need to be hooked into the electricals in order to work? And how am I supposed to get it attached? Okay, stupid question, but without a mechanic, I am stuck doing it myself or probably never getting it installed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
