Speedometer Ratio
« on: May 07, 2018, 07:34:12 »
Howdy,

Recently picked up a Ace, was a bit neglected and I'm getting some new parts to replace those worse for wear. Looking to get a new speedometer and headlight (the current one is aftermarket). Any help on what the ratio is for the speedo and compatible parts would be great help.

Thinking of getting a bottom mount headlight closer to the size of the original, but not sure what bracket I would be able to fix to the triple tree. Once again any advice here appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi there and welcome to the forum, if you take a look at page 4/5 in my thread below you can see pics of my Speedo/tacho and headlight setup...they were both from AliExpress for about 30 dollars. If you like the look of them I'll dig up some links for you.
Before I managed to put in my headlight I stripped out the old brackets and made a couple of right angled pieces to attach the standard headlight to the bike (didn't take pics cos it was only temporary).

The standard speedo is far from accurate. I don't think you can do much worse- 120km/h indicated on mine is 105km/h in reality.

I used AliExpress for a HD light which I fitted with a LED unit:

Yeah they suit well, the koso are fairly expensive though right?

The photos were to mainly to show the replacement headlight.

But I have a black-faced set of Koso gauges that I'm not likely to use; half price should cover it (for 'Ace' owners only!)
