Speedo for a Street-legal XR650R

It's time to get one.

I am intrigued by some of the little analog mechanical drive speedos on the market. :applause:

Does anyone out there know - are the speedo drive cables universal? And what ratio - 1/1 or 2/1 works for the Honda? :bonk:

Trailtech Lynxs aren't in the pipeline out here yet... :cry:

Thanks,

The 1985 XR350 stock enduro computor works great on the 650R. Another good choice is the 1987 XR200 odometer/speedometer. The stock 650R speedo cable fits right in and is geared to match. I had two 85 XR350s that are long gone but I kept the computors. :applause:

I have a Trail Tech on my '01 650L that works great. The only thing I had to do was fab up a small reading light to see it in the dark. It has a backlight button, but it only stays on for a few seconds.

We used to spin a mechanical speedo, with an electric drill, to see if it work be right for an XR600. Reverse, full speed, showed 30 mph. If so, it was the right ratio for that bike. I had a mechanical drive Yamaha snowmobile speedo on it for years, before I put a Trail Tech on that one, too.

1974 CB350 speedo picked up on ebay cheap. Perfect fit. The needle does bounce a little bit at higher speeds, so I just take a WAG. :applause:

I bought this setup on ebay, and it works great .

Baja designs has this one which the stock cable hooks right up. I have it on my XR650R and love it. It cost $65.00

Needsprayer,

Looks like you finally got a stabilizer. Good job!

Needsprayer,

What are you driving with that dual switch setup mounted up by your speedo?

That switch is for the blender......he makes a great margarita.

Great stuff, all, thanks!

Jim - I went on e-bay - which drive ratio or supplier did you use? :bonk:

Thanks, a BUNCH, :applause:

Like oldturtle, I have a Honda enduro unit off an '85 XR350 that I bought new, have had it on several bikes since, they are becoming scarce though. My son got a speedo off an old XL at a local bike salvage yard, made a bracket and put it on his BRP, works great, connected right to the stock drive cable, cost $10.

Needsprayer,

Horn and headlight. The horn is only installed so I could get a license plate, I would never use it. The headlight (100W) is only turned on when I am on asphalt.

The margarita blender is kept in my rear fender bag for those days that get over 100F. :applause:

I have a brand new XR650R bought at my local Honda dealer here in the UK but the speedo is in KMH. is there a card or somthing to fit inside the speedo to convert it to MPH

Just use a gps.

Heres mine, Baja Desigs "one size fits all" speedo with Quad ignition switch

on a home made mounting.

works pretty well.

what about us motard guys?

those analogue speedos look nice but the ratio would be off with 17's wouldn't it?

what are my options for an analogue
