How to get brownie points with your wife...

Since we have been talking about speedometer faces....

I might take a hit on my man card for this one... that remains to be seen.

But: Sometimes ya have to do what ya have to do... Especially to get the door open to spend more money on the bike.

Thanks to webslinger for doing up another speedometer.

I just don't get why someone would go thru the trouble of changing the speedo plate.

velociraptor intake (wire mesh left off); Cannella black riser; dyno tuned
Cobra 3" slips (baffles in); Memphis Shades pop top sportshield; iso-driver boards
Fi2000R, ~120 mls LED lights; C&C SportTour seat; Rebel Bandit ReFlash Hog

I would imagine for the same reason you:

1) added kuryakyn velociraptor intake
2) added those cobra 3" slips

Just cause we can. LOL!!

In my case, just to be different and change things up. It is probably different for everyone. I will roll with this faceplate for awhile then change it out for something or go back to stock.

Just makin it my own ride...

Why would someone plant a "no mod allowed flag" on the speedo plate...

To me anyways, if it is on the bike or part of the bike, it is subject to a mod or 50...
