When I lkook up the part number on a BMW fiche it says in the notes "I=3,20 MPH" . The part is 62121244647
My gut tells me this is a Para R 80 speedo, and will wrok perfectly on my 37/11 ratio stock 81 R 80 G/S. Or am I all screwed up?

I am sure you know them..a very good factory fiche.
Hoping to hear soon as this speedo will not be around long!
If you are talking about the speedo from the guy in France on Ebay I bought one for my G/S.
Yes it worked, but at an indicated 70, I was doing about 62. Kind of annoying, but I just did the conversion and liked the odometer for fuel fill ups.
