Hi,
Has anyone upgraded/switched out the stock Speedometer to one that has both a Tachometer and Gear indicator on it?
my husband has one of the newer Vulcan S and I love how his speedometer and all the features it has and was wondering if there was one similar to that that I could put on my 2017 Honda Rebel 500.

I haven't done a speedometer mod, but I don't think a tach is actually necessary in my opinion. I grew up riding, so I just go by the sound of the engine.

I did however but one of those $50 gear indicators on when I first got the bike, but I don't even look at it anymore. Mounted it on the face of the front brake reservoir.

It's nice if you're a new rider, but after you have some saddle time you won't even go by the tach or indicator.

I almost bought the Vulcan S. It was between that or a Rebel. I probably would fit better on the Vulcan with the extended reach stuff set. Since I'm 6'1. But I liked the looks of the Rebel more.
