Hi Guys

My speedometer needle is very jumpy, its just moving up and down all the time instead of staying at a certain speed.
Any ideas please?

Sounds like an electrical fault probably at one of the loom connectors or could be the actual sender unit on the front wheel.

Thanks I'll see what I can check
Does it not have a speedo cable?

No; I don't know exactly how it works but it's a sort-of induction system with electric wires.
There's a rather fragile tab on the front wheel which operates that end. The tabs tend to break off when the wheel is removed unless one is very careful.
No doubt someone will explain far better than I.

Sorry...rear wheel on an Xevo. The sensor is under the LH side below the shocker bracket. It could just need adjusting in clearance to whatever it senses on the rear hub/wheel.
I thought the Xevo was same as X9 as did Mike above, so no tabs on this model to break off but still an induction sensor.
