We’ve all been loving the BWS X speedometer. It’s got a smaller footprint, a nice and simple screen that shows all of the functions that the standard/stock speedometer doesn’t. Koso/PGO even came out with a clone for awhile with some friendlier attachments. However, they also only came out in Kilometers per hour; no MPH.

Starting in 2015, Yamaha came out with the newer Zuma 125s with a digital speedometer that is very similar to the BWS X style speedometer, and this one comes in MPH (and could be altered to km/h for our metric friends). Below is a link to a YouTube video that shows off what that nice digital speedometer looks and acts like.

So my question is; can this part be ordered and installed on the older Zuma/BWS 125s? Has anyone done this? Thanks.

That would be a really cool mod if it could be done simply

I took this question to a local scooter shop here near Portland, the scooter turd shop. One of the guys there was very much interested in the thought of simply buying the part and trading it up. He looked up the speedometer part for a 2016 Yamaha Zuma 125 from the Yamaha Parts House web site.

Then he looked at the section for the front wheel.

https://www.yamahapartshouse.com/oemparts/a/yam/56e0904c87a8660718f20dc2/front-wheel

He found that the newer Zuma 125s speedometer cable attaches to the sensor on left side of the front wheel, while the older Zumas attach to slightly different sensor located on the right side of the front wheel. He wasn’t sure how that would work.

Since I’m still a new owner, I don’t want to just jump into this expense just yet. Maybe in a few years I’ll check this out. If there’s anybody out there who is braver and richer to try this, I would love to hear from you. Thanks.
