Does anyone know of a replacement for the Odometer on an 05 wr450? I'd like to replace the Odometer with a Speedometer that has Odometer built in. Is there such a thing out there that will bolt using the original drive and cable?

I am using a Mechanical speedo for a 2001 XT 350 yamaha. It hooks right up to the wr450 cable but I had to dream up my own mounting system. I 've had it on my 03 wr 450 since January of 2003 and it's got over 5000 miles on it and it still works great. It also has a light in it which I tapped into the headlight wire. Viola, I can see how fast I am going day or night.. The speedometer cost me $116.00 back in 2003, should be about the same now.

I have an 06 digital unit for sale, here in the classified sections, they look sweet.

Good Morning
I too have a 05 Wr 450. What I ended up doing was ordering an ENDURANCE Computer Kit from Thumpertalk store. It works sweet. Remember though you will have to drill into your Caliper to connect the pick-up. Go to thier website and it will give you 3 great pictures on what you have to do to get it connected. The instructions that came with it SUCK!!! It was only like 72 bucks as well. It has 2 different MAintenance logs as well as trip nad daily tripmeters. Buy it, You'll like it:ride: :cheers:

Yep, our Aussie bikes come with exactly what you are after! Problem is thet the quality of them is questionable (don't last long).

I replaced mine with a Trailtech unit. :cheers:
