    06 > 07 Speedo Conversion

    Exchange is pretty simple. I used the 07 headlight/speedo harness. With the harness, installation is plug & play other than 3 headlight wires. The speedo worked perfectly when I first plugged it in. I connected the headlight wires to the new harness and switched the signals to new harness as well. Signals plug in directly.

    I used a metal bracket that Erci and Lean69 collaboratively produced.

    Construction of the bracket here: http://www.600riders.com/forum/fz6-g...ing-parts.html

    Bracket group buy thread here: http://www.600riders.com/forum/fz6-s...-interest.html

    The bracket fits perfect and has a very clean look.

    Thanks Erci, Lean69 and Skoote65 for all the help!

    Here are some photos:

    Re: 06 > 07 Speedo Conversion

    Thank you for putting this up!

    It is always tough to tell what is actually going to work as the Cluster houses a "black-Box" which has multiple functions. Luckily, it appears that Yamaha used some standardization in how the "black-box" processes the bike data.




    Also, How did you get you Speedo-Mount already!!??!! :BLAA:

    Re: 06 > 07 Speedo Conversion

    I really want to do this mod someday for my non-naked FZ6. I might just be better off switching to the entire 2007+ front end.

    Heck, I've upgraded just about every other part of my FZ6.

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Hey mate, could you make a thread on this?
    I'm not very tech savvy, and could use a "speedo conversion for dummies" post
