Smiths digital Speedometers will require either a sender unit or dedicated ECU signal (modern machines) to operate. See the accessories page for compatible senders. Downloadable instruction sheets are also available to the right under the “OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS” section.
These are the classic Smiths analog faced gauges that are as part of of your British motorcycle as the bike itself with one major difference. These work with digitally remastered internals. No more glancing at the gauge and trying to guess your actual speed or rpm by visually “averaging” between the bouncing needle. Smiths digital instruments are made in the UK in the last surviving original factory unit, this site has made Smiths gauges continually since it was opened. And yes, even the motherboard of the gauge is made in the same factory…not the orient. The cases are made of stamped steel-not plastic with the same type of rolled over waterproof bezel as the gauges from the 60’s and 70’s. Lighting is from a built in LED. 12 volt positive or negative ground. Tachometer hooks to the coils and Speedometer gets it’s signal from either a hall effect sender attached to your stock gear drive (ratio and wheel size doesn’t matter) for an “original look” or reed sensor (similar to a bicycle gauge) that can pick up from the sprocket, disc carrier or spokes *not included-see accessories. This will also eliminate that leaky tach drive and cable from your British iron. Since this original factory has the original analog artwork for the gauge faces, all attempts were made to incorporate the black out digital display to blend in naturally providing you with a reliable odometer and trip meter.
So while we can appreciate NOS gauges, if your bike is a rider, consider the price of a rebuild and core and how long that rebuild will actually last…
