Motorcycle Repair/Speedo Cable

Question
Will a speedo cable from a CA77 or a CL77 work on a CB77?  Thanks in advance.

Answer
Jim... the short answer is NOPE! They all have different end fittings. CAs have big fitting in the speedometer and the CLs have a bigger drive end fitting than the CBs. They all have different part numbers and that's why...

I may have a spare CB cable here at the moment, which is a new aftermarket version that works fine.
