wha, wha, wha ..... what - just kidding, i have a 2016 Bolt R-spec
suggest KOSO tach-speedometer replacement (Ebay $285 or from KOSO at $365)
(1) silver rim (mine to match chrome gas cap) , black rim (for black-out look) , digital numbers std black OR negative
MANY Bolt owners have stated 2014 speedometer is hard to read in SUN - the tinted lens (other models, no longer tinted)
oh - i have mine for sale, 8,500 miles on it for $75 plus shipping)  -  i do Not know how to reprogram it to your miles
back to KOSO tach-speedometer , write down mileage before programming it - i have mine set with RED background color
I re-painted heat shields and 2 CAPS Red, replaced BRAKE Cap (just left of right throttle handle) with METAL CAP and cnc laser cut XVS-950 on the BRAKE CAP top (i replaced my Levers - brake n clutch to RED) bought 2 custom DECALS - BOLT symbol
have K&N air intake (supposed increase 7 hp)
............ customize YOURS :)
