i have a 98 vmax xtc 700 and the speedo hasnt worked for like 3 years. i hit a jump the other day and it kinda works. it bounces between 0 and 20. the weird part is i can fly accross a field and it stays around 20mph. when i let off it jumps to like 40 or 50 however fast im goin. anybody have any ideas what would cause this?

Check your driveshaft bearings, but sounds more like a crimped cable. Check the cable routing - all bends should be big and gradual.

i have a feeling its the bearings. my dad owned it last year and the secondary had tons of side to side play in it. he put some sort of a shim or something on it to stop it from moving back and forth!!! so it hasnt burnt a belt yet this year which im surprised cuz im sure the clutch is lined up right!! so i was gonna do all the bearings this spring. ive never done them before are they a pain in the ass?
