    I need to get a new speedometer for my 97 flstc. I would like to avoid paying HD a bunch of money for a new one and have to get it calibrated. My question is could I use the one in the link below. If not then why not? Is it the size?, wiring?, does it mount differently?. I only need the speedo part not the whole chrome part and the milage is about right.

    My guess would be no, because the Nostalgic Face Speedo Harley sells, only fits 2004 to 2006 softail, throws a red fag up for me. The one you are looking at is 2004 I think the add said. Something must of changed in 04 or it would fit earlier models.

    Thank you but I was kinda hoping for a more detailed reason. I'm not afraid to cut wires and solder them if that's all it takes.
