KTM MXC Speedometer

I recently purchased a 2005 MXC 450. I was wondering the best option that I have for aftermarket speedometers on the market. I am looking for something with an easy install, but also is accurate with it measurements. FILL ME WITH KNOWLEDGE!

Cheapest option is a wired bicycle speedo. After that you are looking at something like a trailtech vapor, or something used off a ktm.

Bicycle speedometers typically have pretty short wires. Even the longest ones won't reach down the legs of a dirt bike.

Look at Trailtech, Acewell, Koso for nice digital sdpeedos. Also check ebay, there are some that look suspiciously similar to the Koso's but at a much lower price. They also allow you to have a tach, water temp, etc.

Most bicycle speedos aren't backlit either. But, they are pretty accurate. And you can always splice in extra wire to make it reach further down.

My speedo on the 640 adv just died. I replaced it with a Trail Tech Vector. More info and way less cost than the factory unit. Install was pretty simple. I'm very pleased with the unit.
