    DRZ speedo

    Post by Hopes Dad on Sun Mar 18, 2012 7:44 pm


    After fridays outing my speedo has gone nuts, while we were out it started impressivly showing speeds of 80 -- 100 mph, but now it's just doing the windmill thing, where it's doing laps of the clock. Shocked

    Anyone know what other clocks will fit on it?

    All the stuff on thumpertalk just says "get a trailtech dude". I've searched for the same speedo on it, but it's just coming back with a trip meter

    Suggestions?

    Cheers Dicky, just ordered one, the only concern i have is it's only rated to 99.99 mph.

    Any ideas how I can work out what speed I'm doing when I'm over a ton? ( which is always ) lol!

    Sorry Dicky, meant to post this up, but forgot!

    Thanks for the pointer, the speedo is good. It's a bit cheap & cheerful, but works fine.

    Had to make up a few bits n pieces, to mount the speedo part & to fit the magnet, as the one supplied is to suit a push bike. Plus I had leave the standard speedo in place to run the cable down.

    Will try to post up some pics later.

    Thanks again

    Here you go Dicky.

    Had to make a biy of half round bar to mount the unit to. Used the original mount for the old speedo

    This is mk1 of the magnet striker, need to make something a bit stronger or possibly mount off of the disk rotor

    Hope this helps, if you need any bits made up give me a shout
