Manufactured mini speedometer as minimalist
Replacement for the original speedometer, made in Germany. The speedometer
comes in a chrome-plated Cup with chrome ring. The scale ranges
up to 180 km/h, has a black dial and is illuminated.
-Instrument mounting diameter (diameter): 48 mm
-Outer diameter on the chrome edge (outer diameter): 52 mm
-Total length/lenght Cup (without accessories/cables): 54 mm
-Connection for the speedometer: BMW standard M18
-The speedometer works mechanically / Eddy current principle
-K value of 1.0 and so fits many R45 models and vintage
If you are not sure which translation has your motorcycle,
then you can find out yourself, whether this instrument the
Speed will display correctly. The value of K can be as follows
-Circumference of the wheel measure (using tape or by rolling).
-Unscrew wave of the speedometer. Perform 10 turns with the wheel
and this count the turns of the now visible Vierkantes.
-Calculation: K number of revolutions of the square = 10 x divided by the wheel circumference
-Round the result to one place after the decimal point (there are actually only Tachos
with the K values 0.7, 1.0 and 1.4).
Ideal as a cheaper substitute for the incredibly expensive original instruments, but also prima
suitable to the Café racer conversion.
Please note that the BMW R models, the Red charging light on every case
further be operated must, because otherwise the alternator generates no power.
The charging light may also can hidden place (E.g. in lamp pots) mounted or
completely be replaced by a resistor (article number KO KIS).
