Speedometer Faceplate

I have been looking with no luck so I figured I would ask here.

I am looking to replace my speedometer gauge faceplate and here's the reason. I live in Canada so i need a speedo in KPH, but I also ride in the States and my current speedo doesn't have MPH on it. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement faceplate that shows both the MPH and KPH on it? I am looking for something resembling something like the photo below.

I think all of the U.S. bikes come with gauges similar to the one you posted (only they have a white face plate).

I looked up OEM gauges and only found the entire gauge cluster for sale ($465.00) . You might want to check out a salvage yard to see if you can find the gauge set on a crashed bike.

I also looked around for after market gauges and found some on ebay but they don't list both MPH and KPH.

The black faces shown above are for the Concours14 and white ones are for the US14s. Personally i am going to go with the Concours face plates one day.

The ones you see on ebay can be completely customized. Just contact the seller and ask them. Color, text, everything.

I agree, the Concours guages do look a bit better.

If you go the used route, make sure it is from a low mile bike. The mileage goes with the meter unit.

I just received my face plates from Speedhut that I ordered, as was suggested. I have to say the workmanship is quite nice. If anyone else is thinking they need or want something like this I would go the route of getting aftermarket add ons like this.
