Mechanical speedo options?

Been thinking for a while about swapping the gauges on my Ď09 T100 for a single unit. Seen loads of cool ones but the are all digital. Anyone know of one that works with the speedo cable? As always, any pics would be good. Thanks all 👍🏻

The ratio that you need is 2240:60. If you have EFi you will need to get one with the idiot lights in it or gear up separate lights.

Hoping to find something that has speedo and revs all in one? Have seen a few but no idea if they would work?

This one runs off a signal generator plugged into your speedo cable drive at the wheel. As you can see it has a built in tacho (run a wire from the coil). I am super pleased with it, the quality is superb. Removing the speedo cable allows you to centre the speedo for a better look.

Any pictures of the sensor at the wheel?

I was looking at those once upon a time for my 2002 T100. They were rather large, maybe 5.5inches diameter, and the tach was for a Harley firing order which wouldn't work (so I was told) with the T100 pulses. Ended up going a different route.

From what I understand both use wasted spark technology. Each coil on a Harley would therefore fire once per revolution, as does the single coil on a T100. Others may know more.

Why are these little changes never straight forward? I may ride with the tach covered, see if I actually need it? Then I could just use the original speedo but on its own.
