Skorpion speedo cable
After 16 years my speedo cable snapped on my silver Skorpion. I'd read on the Web that a cable from a Ducati Monster fitted, so ordered one from Ebay. Link.
As you can see, it's the same length as the Skorpion cable, but higher quality and with a boot at the bottom end.
Fitting was straight forward, just a bit fiddly due to the fairing, but no real problem.
Cable in place!
The boot at the bottom of the cable clips over a lip on the speedo drive giving a (hopefully) waterproof seal.
This is the label from the packet. I assume it's a pattern cable, but it fits well, is good quality and more readily available than a genuine MZ cable.
