Cables

 

We make cables to suit your application. We do not keep any speedo or tacho cables in stock as cables have a short effective shelf life. Apart from an obvious break which happens for a reason, we can explain how to test your inner cable which may explain why your speedo or tacho wavers particularly at low speed.
