    Anyone think of modifying the speedo???

    Hey guys. I was thinking of getting rid of my speedometer and "speedo shield" on the bike. Has anyone done this before. I thought that I might be able take the whole unit off and put on a digital speedometer/tach combo in its place. This would eliminate the speedo shield that some people think makes the M50 look like a V-rod. What do you think? Has anyone done it and/or have pics of this mod? Any concerns?

    Are you volunteering?

    I would definitely be interested in seeing what you come up with.

    I will do this mod next month....u must be careful when u dismount the original speedo (it's not an easy operation and the risk of damage is high).

    I will replace the original speedo with a mechanical one and i will bring my M50 to a professional customizer....they asked me about 190$ for this mod.

    Next step will be replacing the original head lamp with an HD883 style.
