Replace Speedo after crash?

Is a speedometer difficult to replace? I can buy a new OEM, just curious to see how much work I can do myself and how much I have to let the dealer do?

Thanks.

It's very easy. Unbolt the old one, bolt on the new one - unplug the old one, plug in the new one.

Before you splurge on a new speedo, I would try to get the old one working again. Take the old one off the bike, shake it, tap it, and see if that frees up the indicator. If not, I would at least open it up, and see if anything obvious is wrong that can be fixed. If all that fails, then go ahead and order a new one.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
