Cable snapped on my speedo a whie bak still not got round ot gettin it replaced.

I remember ben saying that the l8r model '2's had a digital thingy to measure the speed as opposed to the cable.

Can i get one of these l8r model speedo things fitted in2 my 2, instead of having the cable replaced?

thank ya!

don't think so fella .. A cable snapped on My REv1 .. cost about £30 for a replacement cable and then about an hours labour to fit it ..

Agreed, it would be no small task. You would have to fit the speed sensor somewhere (I think it goes on the gearbox). I suspect that the Rev 2 gearboxes have a different attachment for this. You wouldn't have the appropriate wiring loom up to the instrument cluster, so would have to wire this yourself. All in all, I really don't think it would be worth it, and the costs would be at least £200 (for new parts - probably more) - which is a heck of a lot or speedo cables.

damn sounds like i'll havta stick with hte cable then. another quick question fellas.

What else should i get done under there whilst the cables being fitted?

Well it alll depends on how much wear there is on the various bushes. If they're solid, then the shouldn't need changing. If on the other hand, they're loose and worn then yes change these too.
