    Hello all,
    Thinking about changing the speedo from the stock to one of the fancy upgraded ones, question is, does the dealer have to be the one to re-instate the mileage on the new speedo or is there a way where the shadetrees like us can do this?
    Just wondering if anyone knew how they actually do this process?

    :cheers

    As far as I know the dealer is the only one aside from an instrument repair shop.

    When you buy the speedo, they ask you what mileage you want on the new one. You kind of have to guess, since it's a special order. I got a speedo/tach combo and I really enjoy now knowing where I am in the power range. Of course I got it at the same time I got a stage 1 mod kit. The dealer wanted an hour's labor to put it in at $110 per hour. I managed to do it in about 25 minutes.

    Hello Rican Glider:bigsmiley28: i bought the combo Speedo and tach part #74676-07 page 503 item f. price in H-D big book $499.95 but i bought it from surdyke.com for $406.20 :D most of there parts are 20% off. and no they did not charge to reinstate the mileage:sd nor did they verify my mileage. i just told them what it was.the thing i did not like is it took about 40 days they are very slow:bigsmiley5: i also use Chicago H-D they seem a lot faster it is easy to install just plug it in and your done.it may be a good idea to disconnect the batt first :bigsmiley17:

    It sometimes takes a lot of willpower not to buy chrome when you know there are other expenses that take priority. :bigsmiley31:
