hi Matt i can send you the pictures to your email but not sure how to post them on here. As for the speedo its a fairly common fault for them to fade and get dampness inside. i dont think its repairable?
new ktm ones are £300 ish but trial tech vipers are under £100 new

Ian, any chance I could have a look at some pictures as well please? I assume you have receipts for all the work that was done? Did the engine rebuild include a re-bore? Thanks, Pryd
