Does anyone know the Yamaha part number for a WR400 speedo ? All the dealers I have rung either cannot be bothered to look , or say they don't have microfiche data for the WR400.
I am in the UK , so a MPH speedo would be preferable to KMH - do they do a MPH speedo ?
I have tried Mountain Bike sppedo's and they are a bit crap really - I would prefer the proper article if you splendid chappies can help with the number.

thanks

To the best of my knowledge there is no WR400 speedo per say. There are lots of after market speedos available, but none that Yamaha has for the WR. Baja designs seems to be just about the best place to find an aftermarket one...

Hope this helps!

The Australian version of the WR comes fitted with a speedo so that it can be registered for road use. I have never broken one and therefore do not know of the part number. However I will track it down for you if you like. These Australian speedo's are in Kph though.

I have a full ADR list with part numbers at http://www.400thumpers.oz-au.com/

I understand that your dealer should be able to order it, as it's the same one used on the WR's for other countries. It has a blue background with a little WR400F logo on it.

Andy.....

I got my bike from "ford and Ellis" in Chesham, Buckinghamshire. They got the bike road legal and registered it for me.
If you contact them, they will supply you with the speedo that my bike has.

There ain't no stock WR 400 speedo. It only comes with a tripmeter. I was able to fit an old stock XR250 speedo on mine, like they sell on the Baja Designs website (about US$150). That's when I discovered that my tripmeter gear assembly (TGA) had no guts in it. The previous owner took it upon himself to gut it and use it as only a spacer. Since the TGA cost over 50 bucks, I rethought my speedometer plans- I bought a 20 dollar bike computer. It works great. It's very light, durable, and it has a LOT more features than a regular speedo. I was able to mount the sensor by attaching it to the left fork guard and I JB Welded the magnet to the brake rotor. Make sure you securely tape down the wires that run between the sensor and the computer. I had a couple of failures in the wiring when I rode through tight stuff until I completely enclosed the wire from the bottom of the fork to the top of the brake cable with electrical tape. (Originally, I just used small zip ties to pin down the wire along the brake cable, but I guess the wire got snagged.) BTW, I have just ordered a spacer and oil seal to replace the TGA. Together, they cost about US$26. Might save a little weight, but it will certainly afford the wheel bearing better protection from dirt than the current setup.

I installed a Panoram bicycle speedo (www.topeak.com). It has three large easy to read displays for odometer, round trip, and speed in mph or kmh, plus a bunch of other functions like maintenance and time. I mounted it on my handlebar, extended the wire for the sensor, and ran the wire down the inside of the original speedo cable housing. JB welded the magnet to the hub, and tie-wrapped the sensor to the forks. I use it almost every weekend at dual-sport events, works great. It's easy to reset the odometer, but you can't bump it forward or backwards...
