Hey guys, I have been batting the idea of moving my speedo into my cowl since about the day I got her. Well I have finally done it. I have built a bracket the holds my speedo and boss speakers in my cowl and it came out better then I could have hoped. Check it out and tell me what you guys think

very nicely done! I was wishing the cowl was a little bigger just the other day so it could 'house' more but the speedo fits in there very nicely. was it a ton of work to get it in place there?

Looks awesome, how hard was it to relocate the ignition to the side of the engine? Did you have to do any wire work for the move of either ignition or speedo?

Yea I got Shane's ignition kit. It's was easy to install the ignition kit after I got it off the trees. There was no rewiring needed to install either kit. I made the kit very adjustable so I was able to dial it in right where I wanted.

The only wiring I had to do was split the wire harnest and fork off the ignition wires and wrap it all back up with electrical tape

So I got in touch with OP and purchased his mount for my bike as well. I also have the green bullet cowl. I needed to relocate the speedo because I just put new bars on that did not have a place to mount it. OP's solution is spot on! He gave me the option of just the mount for the speedometer or to include speaker mounting as well. Given that I don't plan on putting speakers on, I went with just the gauge mount. The fit and finish is awesome, and for what I paid for it I couldn't be happier! He kept me updated on the status quite frequently. Install was a breeze and it is **** near infinitely adjustable. HOWEVER, you do have to relocate the ignition switch for it to work (which is a bit of a bear... but that's another story). If you have any cowl on the bike with space for it and are considering it, DO IT!! You won't regret it!!

Looks awesome! You happen to have a link for the wiring kit? I am looking to get the Batwing fairing and want to relocate the ignition for it.

You don't need a wiring kit for the ignition or speedo relocation kits. The speedo wires have plenty of slack and the ignition you need to split the wiring harness back about a foot, remove the tank and move the wires

Like bullet_cowl said, no wiring involved. Speedometer harness has tons of slack in it and the ignition harness just has to be removed from the main harness bundle and re-wrapped/re-routed. Removing the factory security bolts on the ignition switch is a bit of a task but once that's done it's a breeze.

Here's the link to SS Custom Cycle's ign relocation kit, 8th item down!

Do you have a photo of just the bracket itself? I've seen the speedo mounted, and it looks really good. Just curious what the piece looks like before it's attached to the bike, and what it looks like attached without the speedo?

here is is uncoated. Ill upload some more after coating.

Am I able to purchase just the actual mount, as in just the top plate in the third picture? I ordered one from FMB but he refunded my money and won't send it because priority postage was too expensive to Australia and he refuses to send it normal post.
