Now my tomos a35 speedometer match my gps

Hi, i have splitted my speedometer and

moved the needle a little back (i popped it

Off and back until it was syncronised with my

gps at cruise speed exactly and then assambled

It again.

Be carefull the needle is very easy to break,

Mine was broken allready så i made a new out

Of a piece of hard plastic,my dremmel and a 1mm drillbit.

It's cool, i like it :-)

At first, I thought it was the clothes pin!

Looks nice (and sharp).

Re: Now my tomos a35 speedometer match my gps

:D ..yes and it's nice and steady now, before it jumped around lìke crazy at different speeds with that half broken speedo needle. (edited)

Henrik, did the cap just pop off?

Re: Now my tomos a35 speedometer match my gps

Hi, pat

No i used a small screwdriver to gently free the cap, a few mm at the time, all the way round

( from behind).

It's not a big deal, the metal is soft and thin

So now the speedo is correct when your are cruising, but reads 4 mph at stop?

You haven't really synchronized it, just adjusted the alignment on the scale so it is only accurate at cruising?

I'm not sure if you've fixed the problem or just moved it.

it looks like its resting on the stop pin in that photo, the amount of tension in these things is so tiny, its almost impossible to make them accurate below 10 mph anyhow.

very cool thanks for posting.

The needle is resting at the stop as Graham mention.

"You haven't really synchronized it, just adjusted the alignment on the scale so it is only accurate at cruising?

Well it's pretty close to the gps from 20km/t to 55km/t.. My Tomos can't go any faster :-) at the moment.

I think i fixed my speedo, if it worked and the needle wasn't broken i would never

have touched it. But when the needle has been of the pin, i think it is a nice

way to figure where put it back (edited)
