smiths speedo and rev counter
« on: 08.04. 2010 16:25 »
hi, can anyone out there help me with a recomendation for anyone who can repair/service the speedo and rev counter on my 59 sr, both kind of work, the speedo is fine untill it reaches 15mph then zoooms round to 120mph, the rev counter on the other hand staggers upto 2000 and no more, if any one out ther knows a reliable man in the U.K. i would be grateful for a contact number, here's hoping!
The sun is out and my bike is of the road barhumbug not a happy chappy!!!
cheers all Paul
