These are generic instructions for installing your custom Harley Davidson speedo dial. Some years may change the way you get your dial face off but it’s pretty much the same. IMPORTANT: WE (www.customspeedometers.com) are not responsible for any damage that may occur from you, The Customer or anyone you contract in performing this mod. STEP 1 -
Set up your bike to get your speedo off. Make sure you protect your tank and then remove your speedometer / bezel housing from your bike. STEP 2 -
Disconnect the power source from the speedometer. Most newer Harley Davidson electronic speedos are this way. STEP 3 -
Now, separate the speedo from the bezel so you can work on it. Here is where your patience needs to kick in. Remember, patience, patience, and patience. This is very important. Slowly pry back the speedo ring all the way around using a small flat head screw driver (that’s what we used). Then move up to a bigger flat head and pry again all the way around the dial ring. This will give you the room you need to slip off the glass-housing ring. Be careful at this point because HD Speedo ring housing has a very soft metal and it is very thin so take care not to over bend it. If you do over bend it, make sure your screw driver dent is on the outside of the ring and can be seen. Caution! The metal ring is very sharp and can cut you! STEP 4 -
Slip off your speedo glass ring and lay it face up. Do not
touch or allow anything to touch the inside of the glass. If you have fogging issues before you started this mod, now is the time for you to clean the inside and apply a “no fog product” to help reduce fogging. The factory already puts this on the underside of the glass so be very careful to keep this glass lint/finger print free. Now make note on your speedo housing where the needle is currently sitting. THIS IS A MUST TO HEL
