If it's a MotoMeter, then it's likely a problem like I've experienced with
my '85 VW Quantum.  I went through 5 speedometers, each replaced under
warrantee, before giving up.  I experienced various degrees of noisiness
and inaccuracy in each of them.  The one I have now wanders around 
unpredictably, indicating as much as 5 mph high or low.
