Speedometer face CAD/vector file?

I didn't realize how easy it is to swap the speedo face, and now I want to create a custom one both for looks and to correct the 10% error it's got going on. Does anyone who has done this have a CAD or vector file of theirs that I could modify instead of working off one from scratch? Seems like an awful lot of work for everyone to redo rather than just have a blank template that others can re-use. Looking for a 2003 model.

This is an awesome idea and I too would love to have a copy of the speedo face file to make my own customized ones. Waiting on a reply now.

I don't have a CAD file, but I had one made for my M50: https://www.volusiariders.com/47-cus...libration.html

I recorded delta speeds with a GPS at 5mph intervals. I snapped a photo of the speedo, then loaded that as the background layer in the free drawing program paint.net. I laid out the new numerals in a semi-transparent layer on top of the photo. I sent the jpg file to Speed Gauge Customs on Facebook. $50. My gauge is now accurate to 1 mph, spot on mostly.

Yeah I saw a few people have had them made and some made them themselves. I should say that if no vector files exist, I’ll take just a high quality scan and vectorize it. Basically I don’t want to crack my own speedo open just to scan it, then do it again to install it, or someone has already gotten a good 1:1 scan we all can use.
