My name is Joshua. I have a 03 R6. I recently was side swiped on the freeway. Pretty severe damage to my fairings looking to save money so I wanna streetfighter my bike. I got basics of the concept.

What my ? is if I streetfighter do I have to remove the speedo mounting bracket. Is there another bracket for the speedo? I am looking into Buying the MT-03 Headlight. I am trying to keep my original speedo. If I have to change the speedo which one is recommended.

Please if you have any advice on the please feel free to post pics or give me your opinion..

Thanks for reading (Just a guy who wants to ride again)

I would say yes....unless you want it sticking way out past your headlight. Had a custom made bracket that I will be replacing soon. If you mount it like you are saying....I doubt very much you will still have clearance for steering.

You can get a cage and mount your speedo to the cage.

Won't take credit for someone elses work, but thanks. I Have a new setup, and I'll be posting pics soon. (Still in the process of making the swap.) But no, That's a bit of a funny angle, but there was plenty of room for the key. Just mounted some dirty bars today, so I'll be moving the speedo into the recess of the bars.

You could always make a tab that goes straight up the 2 frame mounting tabs and flange out the the 3 mounting holes? That way, the gauge would just float about the triple tree.
