    K75s 1987 speedometer reads 2x the speed

    I put this speedometer together using another broken one. Everything now works except the speedometer and mileage are about twice what they should read. If you go 55 mph it reads 110 etc. Travel 30 miles it reads about 60 any ideas?

    That would be a 1.6x error........

    K75s speedometer error

    I just looked at the speedometer I put in the bike. It looks like a mph speedometer(the face). I bought it used off ebay as a K75 speedometer. Are the K75s speedometers different? I am just guessing at the multiplication but it could be 1.6?

    If the face was kph it would be marked as such somewhere. And the top indicated speed would be about 240 instead of 160.
