    81 CM400T Speed Box

    Alright this is the last part before I can ride this bike around. The speed box only works in reverse but not forward. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it because finding something for the 30yr old bike is kinda hard. Any new speedos I can fit to it to make it work?

    Cb450 nighthawk gauge set. Took it off a bike years ago.

    I thought he was talking about the drive. If your speedo is reading backwards I have no fix for that.

    Wheel (and drive) installed backwards. Did you remove the wheel, crazy "speed box" person?

    Actually the fix is a new speedo so I do have a fix for that.

    Spacman hit the nail on the head I think. He fitted the forks sliders (probably)and wheel and gearbox on the wrong sides/back to front.
