Anyone else ever had this happen to them?
Any suggestions on fixing it?

I am debating on just getting another speedo off of Ebay, but wanted to ask everyone else to see if they have taken the speedo apart before.
Hi!
Yes it was some problem! :)



As a matter of fact, I sold my 1992TDM :)

Raul.... don't be put off by that list.

I've an 07 TDM900 and have had no troubles at all. I ride very long distances often and on all sorts of roads here in Australia.

Ive only ever had the battery out once in 88,000k's

I get 23.47 k's per liter almost always. The worst ever was 19k's/ltr on a shocker of a day with massive high winds.


I would..will have another one. Its that good.

and a goot thing is that you can't modify the odometer with the tdm 900, by fakeing the real mileage so what you see is what you get

[QUOTE=itsatdm;7301729]Here is picture of my rear Duro 4.10x18 mounted on the front of the TDM


At 26.25 inches tall we are talking 19' size here. The stock fender would not fit, so I mounted an old modified dirt fender i had.




What 19" rim did you use??

Welcome to the forum 10Hult.

That's a stock 18" front rim on itsatdm's former bike. He put a taller 18" tire on, a 4:10 rear in fact, that has an aspect ratio that ends up being taller than the stock TDM 110/80/18 fitment and a slightly taller than a 110/80/19 like on most other big "adventure" bikes. I think it is a better way to go then a 19" front conversion as it gives more sidewall for cushion which this mag wheel can use off the tarmac to keep it from being dented. Hope that is of help.

Heidenau offers the K60 scout in a 120/90/18 front tubeless that also would end up being slightly taller than a 110//80/19. I bought one, but have not mounted it up yet. I'll need to do a front fender conversion as well for the additional tire and mud build up clearance. The front scout will last about 8 to 10k, has a more rounded profile for better edge feel and it can be matched with a tubeless K60 scout in the rear. This is choice I finally came up with for a decent set of tires for mild off road and some of the long tours with extended gravel sections. Link to a US site for reference, pic, etc. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/h...out-front-tire

Similar tread pattern to the Pirelli MT 90 A/T on mine. Standard size, 110-80-/18. It's a good tire too, on & off seal but it is wearing quickly.

Thanks AdvRich!
Nice to be here
I've been around here for a while but never signed up.

That explains a lot about the front rim.
it will bring me some job to choose Heidenau....
i've to raise the front fender and i must extend the brake hose
Maybe i just go for at Michelin Sirac (rear reversed) in front and Anakee 2 in rear when it's time to change.


Thanks again AdvRich for your time!
