Speedometer Problems

I bought a 2001 KLR last month and it is great. The only problem is I will glance down and the speedometer is at zero or 10 MPH and the odometer is not turning. Then I will look down again and it will be working fine. Any suggestions? Did it today on the ride to work all the way - 15 miles.

UPDATE:
Went home and took apart the front hub. The prior owner had replaced the brake pads and did not line up the tabs on the speedo drive so they got bent and only partially engaged. Cleaned out the shavings, beat back to shape and repacked/reassembled = Good as new!

The cable comes loose under the speedo. Intermittent contact. I hope you have small hands.
Are you coming to the Canyonlands Motor Classic in Moab the end of this month?
Good luck.

I will check again. I inspected it and it looks OK. I ran the Canyonlands idea up the flagpole and was reminded my daughter graduates from highschool the 31st and every relative on earth will be here!
