Speedometer low mount

I like to install the clip on bars but try to figure out how to mount the speedometer. I looked at the rebel p-40 mod and noticed they use a low mount for the speedometer which I can't find anywhere.

Anyone know where to get the low mount?

Thanks!

Yeah someone recently posted about moving their speedo to a side mounted option, so it's out there somewhere, can't recall the thread for it atm though..
In the meantime, welcome to the Forum!

Edit: Gosh, sorry, I'm barely awake here, I mistook your request for the side mounted version.. Not quite so sure about this low mounting option that you're looking for.
The P-40 bike concept was a show off piece made for the showroom floor, so they might have gone with custom options that was specifically made for that bike at that time.
Such an mounting option might be out there somewhere, but it's not one that I can recall having seen thus far.

I looked the stead garage mod photo, it looks like they use the same low mounting. but I can't seem to find it on their website though

That's the only thing prevents me doing the clip on bars mod.

I may give them a call on tomorrow

Cheers

Yeah I would talk to them directly and get some info in regards of it. Might just be the fastest and easiest way. Happy hunting!

Called Steady garage and was told they used the stock speedometer mount, which I didn't agree. THe p-40 photo shows they use a much lower mount that the stock riser.

Isnt the diference in the bar?
They dont use the stock bar, so maybe the stock mount is placed lower because of the new bars used in that mods....

The speedo is mounted to the handlebar risers/clamps, so unless there's a low set pair of risers, the speedo is exactly where it is on a standard 300/500.

Wouldn't one need to have rear set foot pegs to go with the clip ons? It seems like a rather uncomfy riding position otherwise.
I wouldn't mind rear set foot pegs but would prefer to buy a kit rather than having to make them myself.
