Yessir, you were correct. I gently pried up on the mounting plate for a better angle for the speedo cable which helped. One other thing which I undid was to slightly loosen the locknuts which hold the speedo to the bracket. I had tightened them a little prior to mounint is which was a mistake. Once lossend, (just enough that the the nylon on the locknuts is still in full contact with the threads) I took the bike for a ride & the speedo works perfectly. One other thing I did was to mount the hi-beam indicator light, which came with to BD DSK to the speedo bracket between the keyed switch & the speedo. Its as if the bracket was designed for it. I just drilled a 31/64 hole & pressed the blue light into it. It was a bit of a snugg fit. As I broke off the little plastic mounting tabs on the light assembly when removing it from the original bracket, I simply slipped a rubber grommet on the underside, snugged it against the new bracket & put a small zip-tie tightly in the groove in the grommet & it works great!
