New housing for speedo/tach?

Postby michael_650 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:56 pm

I've opened up a Honda speedo before, and the ring becomes a mess. Has anybody replaced the whole housing with something less intricate?

Reasons:
1. housing and chrome base are dented, rusty, nasty looking
2. faces are dirty, crackling, i want to update with something custom
3. speedo needle broke off; I will be 3D printing a new one

Any issues with putting the speedo needle back on in the wrong place? I did this on a subaru once and it was forever 10 miles an hour off.

Hello Michael, I've never had a reason to take one apart but there seems to be no shortage of secondhand items on ebay with varying prices and condition.
