I dropped in at Deus Ex Machina in Sydney and picked up a new speedo for the W650. As the W650 uses an electircal instrument cluster there aren’t many companies producing custom dials to suit. The unit I purchased is produced by Daytona in Japan who also do a tacho and different colour facia units to match your style. The unit features a clock, 2x trip meters, odometer and 180km speed reading and it’s glows a brilliant almost blue white.
First join the pink + brown white wires coming from the W650 together
Daytona Black – W650 black yellow
Daytona Orange – W650 white
Daytona White – W650 yellow
Daytona Red – W650 brown white (+ pink)
Daytona Blue, Brown, Black – not used
You will by now of course notice that there are a lot of extra wires. Don’t worry these are just for the Tacho and warning lights. You can of course attach these to new lights or a new tacho but I have opted to go without.
Once your wires are connected you can attach the bracket (also purchased from Deus) and the speedo to the bike. The speedo will then require calibration which you can do using the instructions below. Please not you will need a friend to help you with calibration. Once you have set the numbers as per the instructions you will need you friend to ride alongside you so you can check if your speedo is displaying the right speed.
