Alternative to Raceratb gauge faces

I was cruising Ebay for accessories for my Wee and came across these.

They seem interesting. A little expensive for my taste though. But cool none the less.

Don't drop your bike after owning it for 3 hours.

Even if they are a corrected version, the are KPH not MPH.
Put the Racerfab on my 650 and it was spot on.

So, that ebay seller that you linked to.. I send him an email. Most of his gauge faces are really nice and if he would make a speed-corrected version for our Vstroms with a matching tach they would sell like hotcakes.

I received a response back from the seller. I am down. If some more people will join, the price will come down.

Hello

Thank you for your interest in our offer. We are always open for any custom project and this would be no exception. We have the stock-scaled MPH gauge faces in our offer, but if you are able to provide the corrected version, I will customize our project and produce what you need.
As you have noticed, the quality of our products is excellent. I can guarantee you will be satisfied.
The price for such individual set of gauge faces is 38.49 USD plus shipping (we offer economy mail without tracking for 5 USD and tracked Global Express mail for 13 USD). If there are more people interested, you can arrange a group buy and we can think about some discounts. I can also list this item on ebay so that everyone can easily make a purchase. The production time is about 2-3 weeks.

Best regards
Bartlomiej Kaszak


He also said you can custom choose your fonts/background colors!

I'd like a speedo calibrated in per centage of Mach, and a tach showing Revs per Second.

I just look at my GPS for actual speed, otherwise anything over 50 mph is consistently 4 mph off......easy peazy.

I should do...math?! lol I removed the on board GPS in favor of a cleaner setup. I'm emailing the seller a 1:1 scale of the corrected gauges by Raceratb so I can get my matching white font new gauge faces. To me its worth it. Maybe I'll post pics when its all done.

Yea. my biggest attraction to these was the white numbering on the gauges. I really like the way it looks

I am in Canada myself so the kph is what I would want anyway.

Does anyone have the Raceratb gauges that are solid white with the black font in the day and night? Would be curious to see what they look like with the stock dash lighting.
