I need a speedo for xr 600 r

It is a 96 xr 600 r, I was trying to track down a speedo.

What years will fit? if you have an extra lying around, let me know please.

I am going to check to local salvage shop tomorrow.

Ive got an older (80's) XL/XR Honda Something on my 97 XR600R. Has all idiot lights, resettable ODO, and a large round speedo. I got it on Epay for pretty cheap. I bought that cause it had miles on it and I was in process of plating my bike. I also got a new speedo on Epay. Toy have choice of MPH or KMH. The US version is kinda odd (shows 37.5 MPH, etc(!?!) It was 50.00 bux +/- and looks Identical to newer XR/L speedos. If you need pics lemme know?

Here is the 'older' speedo on my XR. I kinda like this one as opposed to the 'newer' style

Guy, that is an old one. I had that speedo on my 78 XL250S. I do need one myself. My speedo crapped out a few months ago. All I have now in an odometer. I might try and pick up one of those.

One nice thing is that almost all the jap bikes use the same rpm to mph ratio. Something like 2240 RPM = 60 MPH or so. The main thing is mounting. As long as you can get it on there it should work.

The late 80's XR600's had a cool electronic speedometer. They are pricy though.

Don't forget that an aftermarket electronic unit, like a Vapor, are only $120.

don't need anything fancy, I just think analog will be easier to read.

Not like I need to save weight. LOL

If you're not stuck on a stock / OEM speedo, I put a "Cateye Astrale 8" cyclocomputer ($40) on my XR500 and it works great. Shimming the pickup off the forks to get it close enough to the magnet was the only mod needed. Stock units can be found with a little searching, and the speedo drives off the front axle are pretty much the same for many years (same wheel diameter) so it probably doesn't need to be the same year as your bike, just check the mounting bracket setup. Hope this helps, good luck, have fun. :thumbsup:

Walmart bicycle area... bike speedo will be $10-15.

Good time to buy a GPS. I use an old Garmin GPS III. Waterproof and reliable. They won't take to many upgrades, but they will track and get ya back!!! I've seen them on Clist and Ebay for around 40$.

Found this one on EBay

I've still have mine from an XR350R that I bought new. It has been on a number of bikes, is now on my '00 WR400.

I've got a '97 XR600r and got this off eBay... Unfortunately I'm not sure what it is off of, but it utilizes the stock Odometer cable and works great.
