Instrument Module In Speedo
When I put cast wheels on my KLR (I wanted tubeless tires) I lost use of the oem speedo. The speedo drive gear rotated the wrong direction. That didn't matter much to me because I had previously made a digital instrument module that included a speedometer. Since the oem speedo was no longer of any use, I decided to put my instrument module in place of the original speedo.
The five LED's on the top are blue super-brights that serve as a "heads-up" display for my radar detector. The two on the bottom are green super-brights that are individual turn signal indicators. It's kind of hard to see, but in the bottom center is a photo transistor that senses ambient light. It's used for dimming the radar detector LEDs in lowering light conditions. The two shiny things below the faceplate are push button switches used for setting the clock, changing odometer modes, etc.
Opinions are my own. Everything I describe is very likely wrong. Use at your own risk.
