    Replacing damaged speedometer

    I purchased a functional 88 Hawk that had seen some damages when it was almost stolen and dropped. Majority of issues were repaired by the last owner except for the cluster housing as well as the speedometer. It has the front forks of a 93 honda cbr600 with what should be the 120/60 tires. I would like to add a GPS speedo for now before looking into repairing the original. I am not sure if the previous owner was a member as I only found this page after I made my purchase

    Welcome. Where are tou located?

    69Falcon runs GPS speedo. They look GREAT. I have used my cellphone for a speedo on occasion, works good if you have a mount. Should be able to find a stock speedo on here if you are considering going that way as well.

    I'm sure i have seen that bike. Did it come with some info on the mods? Im curious what's in the forks and a few other things.

    Where are you located?

      There are some GPS speedos out and the most popular ones I have seen are from Speedhut with a variety of sizes and front screens but you'll have to probably size appropriately and it's hard to say if they are going to be close to the right size o way to big (or small). There are some 3d printed parts for replacement speedo gasket/cushion rings in the cad files section and a few forum members have printed them out of flexible 3d material but I suspect it would be very easy to change the size to adapt a slightly undersized speedo without much of an issue and you can print it out of typical pla or nylon if you need it to be solid as a spacer.

      As 6 has mentioned if you want a stock unit with the tire size you are running it should be pretty close to dead and probably between the forum members and ebay it should be pretty easy to find a replacement or the parts to fix your original as well so looks like you have a range of choices.
      88 Blue Hawk GT - Under construction but rideable (guest approved)
      89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
      90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

        I am located in Riverside, CA. It would have been nice to keep and see some of the stock features but with how much this bike has been modified I am now more invested into upgrades after taking a peek at how
        different it can look with the work 69Falcon did. Most info I received was given through a youtube walkaround of the bike. I have added a link down below because I am mostly new to these type of upgrades. Previously I only ever gotten a broken muffler fixed and upgraded the lighting system on my 95 Rebel.

        Is there anything important I need to consider when it comes to connecting these new type of speedometers with an older bike?

        Once I decide on a speedometer that works well and is pleasing to see I will ask my brother to print out a new updated cluster housing for it seeing as his hobby is 3D printing.

          Ya, Chuck's bike is dope. It's been inspiration for a few of us.


          Chuck Speedos have an antenna. He ran that antenna to the rear of the bike I try to get the best reception. So that's about it other than that they're far superior to the stock clocks in every way I feel.

          I'm sure chuck can give more info. Also I believe ww is the one who cut the mounts for them.

            It's just an app on my android radio, but super cool app to have.

              Yep, I’m running Speedhut gauges, just the gps Speedo and a temp gauge. Wildwhl built the cluster for me, including the LED indicators. I love it.

              If you’re running a cbr600f2 front end you can hook up the stock speedo cable with the Hawks gauge. It’s the only other front end that you can do that with.

              I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.
