With the universal calibration device (i.e. 3 pound sledge).



Works every time.

Tried that a few years back on the CB350. But since my old Home Utility (pre Black & Decker) hand drill only turns about 700 rpm, it read 15 mph on the speedo.



After about half a day I gave up. Put 100 more miles on the CB without even trying.



Maybe use a Moto-Tool?

Re: Why do it the hard way?

Wow, and maybe after you're done with the speedo, it'll be 1976 again. Time travel problem solved. Should report this to NASA.

Now that's a little much in my book. Here's a short breakdown:



1/2 lb. Ball Peen: Carbs, lighting.



3/4 lb. Ball Peen: Shifters, brake levers.



1&1/2 lb. "small"Sledge: Exhaust Systems.



2 Lb. Sledge & up: Frames, forks. Rims. Quick

removal of fooforaw.



I usually reserve the 10 pounder for my 5 hp

Fairanks Morse hit-or-miss when I recalibrate the mains. Also for slaughtering cattle.
