    Acewell speedo settings

    So I'm getting a new Acewell speedo set up on my 1998 V-max and just want to run the settings by you all for a sanity check. I had a mechanic install it so I assume all the wires are correct but since I didn't do it myself I don't know which all wires there are in there! :ummm: Tach setting is...

    No start, no headlight, no speedo light

    Leaving the gas station the other day, I went to start my bike. I hit the start button and nothing happened. After I cycled the key on and off a few times I was able to get it to start. Now it is doing the same hard to start issue, but when I eventually get it to start, there is no headlight or...

    Chinese Tach / Speedo / Shift Light $42

    What do y'all think about this? I know generally you get what you pay for. This unit has everything in a nice heads-up package, how our first gen V-Max should have been designed (in my opinion). Maybe a pain to install and set up, but it looks very practical. Even a gear indicator! Tach /...

    Does the red '55' on speedo indicate a US import?

    Hi, thanks for adding me! I have just bought a 1999 Carbon Edition, 2 owners and 13600 miles on the clock in lovely 'un-customised' condition. When going to insure it in the UK, I am asked if it is an imported model. Though the registration number shows it to be a UK vehicle on the registration...

    Cloudy speedo glass.

    I couldn't find anything on this. 99 Vmax, speedo glass is cloudy over the top 30%. I hit it with some Scratch-X and made no difference. It appears to be on the outside but I guess I cant be sure without removing the glass. I think this bike has been garaged most of it's life. I really...

    Speedo bulbs

    Hi guys, I'm new here, just bought a 9000 mile '85 Max and am completely rebuilding her. First question (of what I suspect will be many) is how do I get the speedo bulbs out? I've removed the speedo so that it's just connected by the speedo wire but can't work out how to pull the bulbs out of...

    New speedo

    After the needle broke off on my old speedo, decided to try this cheap chinese made one. Actually was pretty simple to install. Just had a small bracket to attach the speedo to and then mount on the existing holes. Mechanical version so cable screws in. I already had a shift and rpm gauge so...
