Hi all. My Speedo face has crazed so if like to do something about it. I've got the ring off with the glass. How does the needle come off? Does it just pull off or us the brass bit under the way to go or maybe the chrome bottom on top?

Also how does the trip roller come off so I can get the whole unit out the outer chrome bucket?

And finally.... does anyone do a new face that will shine the light thru like the original?

Thanks

Get in contact with DEET. You can send the whole thing in to him and he can fix it up. Made mine look like new!

As far as I know, no one makes a new back-lit face.
Only surface decals.


You should post what bike you are talking about, so you can get more accurate information.
Yamaha? Honda?
Year? Model?

Hi. Could have sworn I wrote Speedo face dt250. It's in the dt250 74 76 page so I wasn't that far off. How does the needle come off Mr deet? Is it a screw off or a yank it off?
76 250.
Thanks

Cool. So does the silver cap come off first or pull the lot off. Cap, needle and little brassy bit.

Is the trip wheel pressed on or glued or something else?

I've thought about taking a digital picture of an old face, clean the photo to make the face look new or however I want. Then take it to a sign shop and have them print new vinyl faces. Most all sign shops do there work with cut or printed vinyl.

Thanks Deet. I got the trip twist off as well. They are screwed on. Have to grip the wheels and twist it off. Do you do new faces/stickers for these? Got a pic?
