Digital speedometer

Hey guys, Im trying to find a full digital speedometer for my suzuki boulevard c50 2007. I want it to be able to fit inside the current tank speedometer cover. I can't seem to find one but there is one made for HD. Is it possible to wire a HD speedometer to a Suzuki C50?

I'm looking for the same. A Blue or Gold LED replacement for the stock speedometer for my 2001 VL800. If anyone knows where I can order one please let me know. Over the last year I've been customizing my bike to a full bagger. I'm having the bagger fitted now. I should have it back in two weeks.

No. The speedometer on the VL800 uses a magnet to count pulses (Hall Effect) from a slotted disc on the hub. Your forward velocity is then based on the rpm that the wheel is turning and an electric signal is sent to the speed to move the needle.

Unless you can find a speedometer which 1: works with a Hall Effect sensor and 2: Is calibrated to the roll out of the VL800 front wheel (how many mm/inches/feet/meters are covered per revolution) then you are out of luck.
