Item specifics

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item. See the seller's listing for full details. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
The definitive guide to the repair and calibration of Smiths magnetic SSM speedometers and RSM tachometers
Fix it yourself and never have to pay or wait for repairs again
Instruments can be calibrated on bike or on an easy to build rig
Full instructions given every step of the way. No specialist tools required, just a cycle computer
Also covers fault diagnosis, cable and drive gearbox maintenance and repair
Unless a speedometer repair specialist asks you for the circumference of the rear tyre and ratio of the drive gearbox you are using, you are missing out on potentially greater accuracy that you can get by calibrating the speedometer yourself. Standard calibration gives an error of up to 5% with 1600 revs per mile instruments and sometimes more than this with 1000 revs per mile. This book shows you how to tailor the calibration for the machine the speedometer is used on and in most cases accuracy to within 2% can be achieved
There is a promotional video on YouTube for this book that shows some of the dismantling and calibration stages - search for "Magnetic Speedometer Repair"
Many instruments will only need cleaning but this book also shows how to repair a shattered magnet, replace the upper bearing and fix an aluminium disc turning on its spindle. All repairs can be made at zero cost with the usual hand tools. If you can repair rather than replace with a part taken from a donor instrument then you will help all of us by preserving the stock of these instruments
