Welcome...
Ride it, maybe change the bars?seat?..then think if you really wanna chop/modify it or its "quirkyness" totally fits the individualistic bill and leave "the old girl" as is..

BTW...Not anti cafe...was going to cafe my CB.馃槃.then realised they pretty rare in oz (not in US)..left it alone bar suspension and electrics upgrade

My speedo is a bit jank and sticky too - takes forever to get up to speed and forever to go back down...!
Sounds like lack of lubrication.....first step lube the cable...

Fwiw...i had a Bmw motometer do that after a instrument rebuild by the local VDO technician.. lubed the cable refitted it and the gauge died...lol .馃槃 . (Haha)

Could be lack of gease at the wheel end but sounds more like the gauge internals..

Leave alone unless confident in the job..

The speedos a basic clock mechanism....
If you feel confident by all means tackle it...if not just leave it to later...
The passing cars are just "raining on your parade"!
