    Not sure if this is the right spot on the forum to post this.

    After reading the different posts on how to shorten a speedometer cable, making or modding my speedometer cable myself is a no. Many people mention buying a shortened one. Does anyone know of a vendor that sells shortened cables that work on a 650? say 20" is. (relocating speedometer to the triple tree)

    Do a Google search on "speedometer repair winnipeg manitoba". Those shops should also be able to do drive cable work...

    Thanks for the tip, and will do. That said, I'm still intrested in a new cable if anyone knows of a vendor!

    You might try one off of a different bike, I think the XS400 cable will fit...and it may be shorter, but not sure.

    I happen to have a 400. Same size roughly. But I'm starting to dig into the weeds and see what will work

    Found a shop in town that may do it. I'll see if they can calibrate the new speedo at the same time (21")
