Ya try to get out and they draw ya back in. I've been trying to cut down on my online time so I haven't been here on GT for a while. Unfortunately, I need information from the depths of esoterica and know that someone here always knows something about everything. Just bought my first bike, an '83 KZ750 LTD for $300.00. It had been scuffed up but no real damage. The only casualty I couldn't replace was the speedo. The local Kawi shop wants $4-500 for one (must be gold parts). Now, it's a mechanical device so there must be an aftermarket that'll work, but I don't have access to a manual and can't figure out the ratio to match it with a less expensive alternative. Can anyone out there give me a lead on my next step? I know there are part's catalogs and such but the counter people aren't real helpful when you try to ask about cheaper alternatives. Anyone? Thanks.
