Speedo Trip Reset Button

Some time ago I remember seeing a fix for the busted rubber boot on the trip button (G/S, ST, RT style). I'm thinking maybe there is a Brit who sell the retro kit.. Mine broke off sometime between last night and this morning

Anyone have a link?

There was a group buy on here from HPMGuy to get enough orders for him to produce a batch. You might PM him to see if any are still available. This was all about 5 years ago.

I got one. Also learned how to remove the glass from my speedo to complete the install.

Rubber

Foreign speedo in San Diego sells them for $18. I haven't figured out how to get the bezel off to properly install.

With the HPMGuy replacement, you don't need to remove the glass...

If you are lucky. I'm not. Despite using all the instructions and tricks, the threads on the retention ring caught on the inner piece after about 2 turns and it wouldn't tighten any more - just spin.

The short answer for removing the glass once that happens: Get a hose clamp that will fit around the outside of the aluminum bezel holding the glass. Tighten firmly inplace. I used something like a bicycle tire spoon for the curved tip to gently work around and around the back edge of the bezel. Only lift up the edge maybe one mm at a time working around and around many times. This avoids stretching the aluminum more than necessary while the clamp keeps the outer edge from stretching and getting out of round. Reassembly is the opposite - including working around and around many times slowly crimping the bezel back inplace with the clamp around it again.

Parts came today from Guy. Worked like a champ, with much patience and a little creative use of a bent pick. Very pleased!!
