dreaded gl1200 speedo gear

Post by sportsfreaked »

Does anyone know will a speedometer gear from a gl1200 Interstate without the digital dash work with a digital dash? I'm not sure if the cable that connects to it with the screw is the same as one with a digital dash. As always thanks for your time and knowledge. Ed

Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!

Totally different!!!!!
The Aspencade and other digital readouts use a wired electric signal whereas the Interstate uses a mechanical spinning cable for the speedo like most other bikes.
