Default 1977 Suzuki Speedo question

I need a new speedo assembly, i think its stripped out where the cable goes in. My question is does anyone know what years or models are compatible with my 77 GS550 ?

thanks

Go to an online parts source like bike bandit and compare part numbers for speedos in the years around 1977.

If you just need ANY speedo that works, I seem to recall that all Japanese spedometers of that era were geared the same, so any item that fits should be accurate.

Digital Bicyle speedometer works well. Cheap too. Usually will read to 199mph +/- .01mph/mile accuracy. If you need to go faster than that and measure it yourself - you don't F'n NEED a Speedo at all: you need psychotherapy............
