I have a spare instrument cluster for sale,

Speedo is in MPH

Have not connected it to my bike to check if it works,I assume it was just replaced because we are kph,

Was also wondering what would be a fair price for it,as I need to replace and repair a few things on my K.

Thanks kenny

A good known working cluster is fetching around $250 but as it's in mph and the only country to still be using miles is the US I cant suggest anywhere else you could have a good chance of selling.
I have a mph cluster that I took some parts from as that was the cheapest way to do it. I tried to sell here in Oz on fleabay and didn't even get a bid at $40 starting price.
You probably would have more luck selling for parts, the only things that are esentially different are the speedo face and gears for the odo.
I would be inclined to keep it and use it for spares if you need any. If you sell the bike in the future the cluster will be worth more then than now and you have a source of parts.

Well, without any further information as to condition, odometer reading, etc, it's hard to make a decent offer, but I'd certainly like to have it.

None are currently on E-bay, so they are something of a commodity. A dealer has one with <7k miles for US$400, so that would be the absolute high end. I pay shipping too!

Don't forget we still use MPH in the UK,too.
Hope I don't burst anyone's bubble but I was watching an MPH cluster on  eBay UK this week with 26k miles in good condition.
Sold for £40.

I didn't realize that the UK was still clinging to the old "miles" as well.

Someone on here recently had a replacement sticker made for the face of the speedo. Would not be hard to do and have the sticker in kph.

I just sold a pretty thoroughly rebuilt one in the usa for $400. It had the fuel light board upgrade and new speedo odo drive gears installed as well and had been physically road tested 100 miles and calibrated with the Karamba program.
You'll get a lot more money for it if you put it back on the bike and verify it's overall function.

Like anything else....if you can verify it's performance, you can ask good money.

If not you have to sell it as "not working - for parts only".

I saw one go on ebay recently for like $138. I wouldn't pay more than $35 for an "unknown unit.

Well worth your time/money to test it & see what you have.

Regards, Ibj...

No real need to do that. The needle just pulls off and you can swap the face over to suit your mph/kph needs.

For that reason, I'd snap up a cheap, working unit with the "wrong" units. Just swap the face over from your bust speedo.

Thanks to all who responded,
Will definitely put the cluster on the bike and test it,

The best is to maybe keep it as spares,
Thanks again to all.
