    Ditto on the battery disconnect. I think it it's a 3 minute minimum, but thus fix was not for total "computer failure" it was for speedometer failure, tachometer and clock still worked on the computer.

    The speedo cable and connector usually fatigue and break as the cable seperates after following the front brake line.
    Check your speedo wiring just right of the dash and the little white connector.

    Our dash displays are interesting Italian products IMO I have read for years about them and finally had my first go-around with one the other day. My 07 had been apart for several weeks doing sub frame reinforcement and general maintenance with the battery disconnected. When I put the battery back in to check out the electrics,the display would boot up with the key off and the starter would engage:huh. I did some searching and couldn't find or remember anything related. I have followed this thread from the beginning, but that has been awhile.. So I started trying different combinations and found that if I held the mode key down before hooking up the battery and turning the key on that things appeared to be normal. :1drink
    I am having no success (so far) removing the oil can and wrench though, but I can live with that. Just another day-

    My speedo has done that a time or two as well. Check to see if you have lost the magnet that is attached to the front brake rotor. It is attached to the outside of the rotor right where it would pass under the end of the speedo cable and is about the size of a pencil eraser. If it is gone, your speedo will not work.

    If the 3 minute disconnect does not fix it, it's likely a break in the wire that leads from your rotor sensor to the display unit.

    Yup, happened to me too. Right where the wire dives behind the shroud.

    Bought a spare rear hub on fleabay, does anyone remember what type of Takasago rim it takes? I don't seen any id info on my rims. RK website does not list a model number for huskys.

    Check your Owners Manual.
    Mine has a 1.60" x 21".
    I have a brand new, never laced, Excel rim this size I would like to sell.
    PM if any interest.
    Count the number of spokes to be sure the one I have is correct.

    I thought I read somewhere that the Huskys had a weird angle on the spokes, and that there was a special rim to align with the hub and that a simple spoke count would not reveal which rim to use.

    Don't have a front hub, but my stock rim is pretty beat up....

    I was one of the folks who turned a small piece on a lathe for the fix - but I think any shim (or coke can - Pepsi of that's your preference!) would wok just fine. The difference was definitely/immediately noticeable.

    Also, the replacement clutch cable (by barnett???) that Hall's will send has a ferrule that seems to be the correct size - I measured it with a caliper and it matched the size of the piece I made.

    Email the tech support guys on the RK site. Very helpful to me.

    Apparently, the 2000-2005 models may take a different rim than the '06+ models.

    Buchanan also has all that stuff dialed.

    Sorry, I mis read your post.
    I also have a complete rear wheel for a 91 model Husky. Check out Halls parts list to learn if the rim or whole wheel would work on your bike. This wheel is a solid hub, no cush drive but is the same width as my 2000 610's rear wheel that has cush drive.
    I think the wierd spoke angle refers to the old drum brake wheels because the drum is large and the spokes on the brake side are short.
    Soory to be confussing.

    For your replies, I will email RK first, and failing that, I will prolly send it to Buchanans or Woody's.

    I used Motion Pro b/c slightly longer and braid slides relatively well through the tight bends required. Guy who did my clutch spring washers said the Barnett was his favorite. THE laziest way to oil a new cable is to cut a small hole in corner of a Ziploc. Use rubber bands to seal it well. Find the heaviest gear oil you can. Fill the bag and hang it in the sun. Heating the oil can speed the process, but hours in the sun work. You shouldn't need to pull the inner cable up; the oil will find it's way. Once oil is dripping the bottom, you're done.

    If I was using this method, I would not use gear oil. It has additives that are good for gears, but it's super stinky. The viscosity is actually not that different than motor oil, which is what I'd use instead. Much less stinky. And with this method, it's going to continue to leak oil out the bottom of the cable for some time, so you'd be better off not having that be the stinky stuff.

    What are you guys using for engine oil? The only 10W60 I can find locally is Motorex at $20 a liter. I talked to Spectro rep at IMS in NYC and they have it, but local dealers dont carry it. THX
