Motorcycle Repair/87 Yamaha Ventura Royal Speedometer


Iím still working on this bike and the brake issue is fixed I believeÖ thanks for your help on that.  I am trying to figure out how to remove the speedometer.  Itís not working and either needs repaired or replaced.  I only see four screws on the plastic cover over the speedometer and I loosened them, but I canít get the cover off and donít want to break it.  My manual is no help.  Can you tell me how or send me a link with pictures or something.  Thank you.

Hello Robert,

As it is complicated to guide you through the procedure, here is a link to a video on youtube:

Hopefully it will help.
The author has a different problem, but shows how to remove the instrument panel.

Best of luck...


P.S. I am not the author nor the owner of the video.
