How to convert KPH speedo MPH

To get through the vehicle test I am required to have a MPH speedo or have a sticker under the glass!

How do you guys get around this problem?

The speedo can display either.....check your owner's manual

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Here in Australia it is not an issue. Although on one of my 350s we changed it from miles to klms - a guy I know made a replica face it's indistinguishable from the original but wasn't cheap!

It wasn't necessary purely an exercise doing it for the hell of it.

Sticker under glass is the easiest option in your case.

Are they the type of clock that you can take apart? other clocks I have worked on have the chrome bezel crimped around the edge when made, makes it a bit of a can opener job lol

Hopefully you won't need to use a can opener

To be honest i can't remember it ws some 18 years ago when did that job although the jobs that are horrible to do tend to remain in the memory and this one doesn't so I am thinking it was easy enogh.......the cost certainly stuck in my memory.

You'd have local 'speedo guys' there on the island - I am sure a chat with them will set you right.

Still waiting for photos

No speedo experts that I know of here...

Photos will follow when the bike gets delivered to me, I have to be patient

Google is Your friend mate.
For an example "Veglia mph faces".
I believe the OEM are Veglia instruments and as such installed on many Italian and non-Italian bikes from back in the 60's and 70's.
But I could be wrong and haven't seen my 350's instruments since a few years.
The only issue would be to find the exact diameter.
