I still have the speedo/odo gauge from the 1998 pd10. The odo reads about 95 thousand km. FWIW, when I connected it to my 1988 chassis/cdi unit the rev counter only read about half of what it should. It also has completely different physical dimensions. It's much wider than the 1988 pd06 one and the mounts onto the bracket are different.
I do have the bracket (that holds the gauges/ headlight) off the 1988 pd06.
