Hi everyone,
The next step on the project list is a speedo (I've actually been riding without one for the past month, and having got flashed last night... well.. let's just say it's time to invest!).

I'm looking for a relatively discrete, ideally half analogue, half digital, or fully digital speedo. As a minimum it will have a neutral light, signals, fuel gauge, revs and speed. Judging by the number of gorgeous K bikes running around with aftermarket speedos, I'm guessing/hoping it's possible.

Do you have any experience with them? Good ones/ones to avoid/ones that are easy to connect/ones that use the existing sensors?

Electronics are not my strong suit, but am happy to follow the diagram. Will I be able to wire it myself?

Ones that have caught my eye so far are:

Motogadget Motoscope speedos (eg...http://motogadget.com/en/digital-instruments/digital-dashboard-pro/motoscope-pro.html - decent but soooo expensive!)
Acewell (http://www.acewell.co.uk/Acewell%20Speedometers/ACE-4xxx/ACE-4554AB.htm?action=full&id=42 and the 2856AB too)

Thanks! Really appreciate your views on this one...

Motogadgets in a R50/2 headlight bucket that will be one day attached to my K75


Agreed though, expensive.

Gee Robmack that is exactly the sort of light I want as well, they look so smooth and a great colour as well.

That is a lovely setup Robmack. Very tidy indeed!

Is it difficult to fit a Koso/Motogadget and get full functionality?
