Hi guys. Just thought I would share some information regarding taking off and fitting DP Scrambler Enhanced Billet Aluminium Parts or maybe you just fancy painting or hydro transferring it with a different finish like carbon.


Anyhow its dead simple if you want to.
Ignition off and remove the 3 M5 caphead bolts with a 4mm key. Plastic bottom cover comes off.


Next remove the bottom cover and unplug connector by simply pushing in clip and clamp lever comes up.


Put safe on a surface


You can see 8 screws and 4 of them are deep recessed. These are the ones you need to remove with a T6 TORX screwdriver. NOT an Allen Key. I had to go and buy one as never had one that small.
Undo the 4 screws and note these threads are for plastic as to why the Billet one comes with new stainless screws with a fine thread.

Gently lever up the silver painted plastic trim with a finger nail or something that is thin but blunt .


Then you get your £105 new ring and fit it in reverse


Replace with the 4 new screws if not refitting plastic part with your T6 Torx driver

And then refit the speedometer back to bike clipping the connector until it clicks. Refit the bottom cup ( I have a Billet one coming sometime ordered together but not here yet, That's also £105 too :eek:) with the 3 Allen screws and stand back and admire the work. Hmm its very old skool likey lots.








Test your speedo works.
Job done.:D

No I straightened them ;) lol. Fizzy on right doesn't have them as German but straightened the bar a bit.


Not sure if it will act as a sunshield but you know you can adjust the backlight in the switchgear functions.

Thanks a lot for the detailed information. After reading it I felt confidend enough to change the speedo on my bike. It was pretty easy...

I carbon wrapped my speedo top ring and lower casing on the weekend.
Really happy with how much darker is makes the display - maybe it's just me but I found it easier to read when riding the next day.
Not 100% happy with the lower section, you can see a few wrinkles in the wrap (that was my 3rd attempt for that part, I was getting the sh!ts with it)
I'll probably do it again soon as the wrinkles annoy me.
Also did my front fender and side panels, just waiting on some decals to cover up the screws.
Just need to take a break, or the whole bike will end up wrapped.
