Replace Speedo Drive with Spacer

Hello,

Can anyone tell me if they have seen spacers for sale which would allow me to remove my speedo drive? I have a GPS speedo to install and I know plenty of people use Motogadget speedos so what do they normally do with their old speedo drives? The bike is a 2006 Bonneville T100 865 carb.

I could get a local shop to make one up but it would be easier if I could order online.

Cheers,

Tony

The OE stepped aluminium speedometer spacer from the right hand side of my 2011 mag wheel Bonnie that has LCD guages was a drop in direct fit to the 2001 Bonnie when I fitted GPS speedo to that bike, spacer was readily available from Triumph and besides looking good wasnt very expensive. The mag wheel is wider between the forks than the spoke wheel so it was a surprise it was the right width for my 01 bike.

Thanks I like the idea of the mag wheel spacer alot. I'll definitely have a look at that.

I would still be interested to hear what other people have done as well.

Cheers

I’m not implying that another vendor cannot provide the same or better but...

For $9, I can find no reason not to go with anything other than the Triumph OEM piece. We already know three important things about it: 1) It’s available 2) It’s cheap & 3) It’s repeatable/designed correctly.

Let us know how this works out.

Better late than never, I finally got round to fitting the wheel and decided to take the advice and try the spacer from the mag wheel Bonneville. It is a perfect fit and very reasonable at £5 from my local dealership. The part number is T2000313. Thanks!

Thanks for the update!

Curious what GPS speedo you are using on your carb'd bike and how you like it? I am looking at options for my 2007.

I havent actually fitted it yet. I'm in the middle of putting the bike back together and working my way up to the handlebars. I went for a speedo made by Speedhut because I like that it incorporates a tacho into the speedo gauge. It is quite big but I like it, alot of people prefer the minimalist look though. The website is great because you get to customise almost every detail of the gauge.

looks

That looks neat, I dont think it too big. what have you done with the headlight, that could give a slick front end.

I havent done much with the headlight yet. I actually quite like the big original one, at the moment I'm planning on a yellow lens and stainless mesh guard. But always open to opinions.

Thanks
