The attached pic is my new 240 MPH speedo. I used a Euro cluster that reads in kph, took it apart, covered the kph lettering with a HD pin, put it back together, installed a Dakota Digital speedo adjuster unit to make it read in true mile per hour. Just trying to be different.

What does the odometer read now? I believe it will be what ever the replacement (euro) cluster was at when removed from bike.

It was purchased new and they matched the reading from my old speedo.

Frank, looks nice... Think you'll ever get it that fast?

Second, are the Euro clusters NOT Chromed around the outer cover, or is that a VRSCB cover... yada yada.?

:helpme: I have been wanting different too. I have blue LEDs on my bike and like the color. I wanted to know if you could change the bulbs inside the speedo cluster to different colors? Are they bulbs or LEDs? I have not researched yet :stupid: . Thanks

This is good work but you forgot to widen the RPM range on the rev counter by factor 1,745. Your rev's would be about 16.000 RPM at 240 MPH with stock transmission ratio.

The Euro cluster looks just like the stock US cluster. The chrome that you see around the gage is a separate part for both clusters.

I did not look at the bulb when I had it apart. Max has also taken one apart, maybe he can answer your question. You could change out the clear plastic top for a different color.

That's a good reason to get the sixth gear when it comes out. :diablo:
