Help installing new speedo
« on: February 21, 2020, 09:15:00 am »
Hi guys. Just discovered this fórum. Already learned a lot.

Ive been searching here for the pasta hour for a analog/digital speedometer instalation.

Ive maybe missed something. I have this new speedo in pictures below. Can anyone point me on how to install this? The wires for lights, Turn signals, etc i think i can find out easy. The main issue is on how to make the rpm counter work.

Any tip?

Thanks

Which speedometer did you get? Looks like quite a bit of wiring.  Not sure how to help.

If you search the forums, there are people who have written up on a tach install.

SEND IT BACK and buy one designed for BOLT
KOSO
Koso North America BA051300 TNT-B Multi-Function Gauge - Black Bezel OR Silver Bezel - $281 NEW ($365 on KOSO web)
multi color background - an OPTION is to get NEGATIVE NUMBERING - supposedly this is harder to see in Daytime, but the NUMBERS Will be RED as an example, or BLUE - 8 or so colors to choose
THIS Mounts easily - and PLUGS INTO harness from our BOLT (write down your mileage before switching meters - you will have to MANUALLY Program this INFO or MILEAGE TOTAL into the New Meter

At a fraction of the cost of the Koso I am willing to put in extra work.

Well...Anyone though about replacing Your speedo with anything else apart from KOSO?
Have a look at this photos...
YZF R125 speedo connector looks exactly the same...And Honda NC 700(no idea exact model letters) looks the same...
What would You say?

@Bronxpicman
If you try these possible substitutes, let us know how it turned (i.e., did everything function as it should?)
