new speedometer relocation kit

Got sick of the speedo sticking out like a sore thumb!!!!!
so ive had it. the speedo just kills the look, but a relocation mount cost over $150!!!! insane!!!

so i got crafty and made my own kit

where i put it and can easily see 0-70mph on the speedo without have to look over, so it think it will work out just great. the perfect medium between a funcional speedo and deleting it all together.

members of two thoer forums said i should make them and sell them, so i did, then i got banned at xlforum for not being a paid sponsor of the site. so whatever lol i would do the same here, but i wanna make sure im not gonna burn any bridges. ive been around here a long time.

anyway here are the pics. i really like how it turned out

on my 02 they are led's. pulled the whole thing off and inspected them while i was putting a new set of risers on it. i am interested in this because after i installed the risers my speedo is sitting to straight up. i am trying to think of a way to resolve this, and i like your idea.

only prob is i have a steering stabilizer on the left and i cant judge if there would be interference with it and the speedo.

it looks like you cut the excess bracket off the indicator lights?

i'll check my stabilizer set up this afternoon when i go out to do some PM on it.

thats odd, i have an 02, the one pictured. and mine are regular tiny light bulbs. anyway, on the back of the whoe speedo houseing the light strip is held on with two tiny torx screws, you just take it aprt, and put it back together without the speedo housing. then i just used 3M double stik automotive tape to afix it to the handle bars. ill probably just get rid of it, ou can see the turn signals themselves if they are lighting up, i know when my bike is in nuetral and the other lights really dont need to be there.

BTW, you can put the speedo on right side of the bike too, i just have mine on the left, the bracket will work on either side. i just have to cut the notch for the wire on the other side, no big deal.
