    Hi everyone,

    I am new here and have never done this before but I have a silly questions to make that I have not been able to find the answer to anywhere online.
    I am trying to install a Speedometer in my 1978 BMW R80, but I do not understand where the speedometer cable goes connected in the engine. Can some explan to me how this goes or post pictures of the location in the engine where it reads the speed.

    Thank you very much

    Welcome to ADV. Wrong forum brother. Ask the mods to move this to the right place. There are many airheads here, someone will help.
