While out riding my '09 KLR this morning, I thought I heard some squeaking coming from the front wheel area when coming to a stop from a long highway run. Before I could stop to diagnose, the speedometer and odometer stopped working, after that no more squeaking. I'm assuming I either broke a cable or the front wheel speedometer drive failed. Had to use the tach and my "butt dyno" to guess my speed and mileage for the rest of the ride.
I'm not sure what drives the speedometer cable in the front wheel hub, but I'm guessing a gear of some kind.
I'll probably pull it apart tomorrow to look but does anyone else have experience with this?
Thanks in advance for the help.
