Speedometer compatibility

Post by brecchi »



Hi guys, I'm in need of a replacement speedo for my 81 GL1100. Will a speedo from a GL 1000 (or any other model) work, as in a plug and play replacement?

Anybody know this? I've read some things about partial compatibility but I'm not 100% sure.

I think the unit in 1981 only went to 80mph so I'd be looking for a 1983 gl1100 speedometer which goes back to higher numbers.
