Yeah they are expensive but you have to consider what your time is worth and how long the job will take.
After finishing that Kawasaki I have bought the next two dual sport kits from Baja Designs.

Mine is almost complete, I have to decide if I'll install a panaoram computer or try fitting a small speedo unit from an older bike. Prerequisite being previously attached to a 21" front weel.
Anyone has an idea about what model or from what bike I could get a speedometer in good shape ?.
I know that VDO used to make good units (back in the end of the 70's early eighty's. May be they are still something similar ? A small Yamaha model would be just fine too, I only have too find one ?
I think it really transforms a full bore offroad machine :Dinto a <more civilised> offroad . Now if I can only bring my civility with me when I ride . If you choose a very competitivre bike, the fact of adding some < legality > doesn't take out any of its bite , It only brings the bike nearer to a second caree in supermotard trim

thanks for the heads up. After reading through most of the thread, I have a different outlook. Maybe $500 bucks isn't out of line...

I just recieved my speedo for my yet to arrive WR450. I ordered one for a 2000 XT350, cost $120.00 american and is small and compact, Should fit behind the headlight/numberplate with ease.. Hooks right up to the stock tripodometer cable. I have a larger unit from a Honda on my WR 400.. Had to build my own mount as I just got a bare speedo from a friend.. I personally like a speedometer over the trip meter for the street.
