Ya, don't do it. I tried and messed up the face. The outside trim on those speedos is thin and pressed on tightly. They are made to be replaced. I'd get used to KPH rather than try to put a vespa MPH speedo in it. Rare speedometers are worth rebuilding but cost more than new. They (any vespa speedometer) aren't very accurate so I'd just keep it on for decoration and keep using your gps if you want to get an exact reading.

I need to get a new speedometer. The AZ guy had some sort of old speedometer in there that didnít match with what should be in the bike.
I purchased a new speedometer cable and gear for a Vespa Sprint VLB and the nut that gets attached to the end of the speedometer is too big. The VLB gear that I purchased works because I can spin the wheel and it makes the speedometer cable turn, so I am good there now. I ordered the VLB claimshell speedometer from scooterworks that matches the VLB cable that I purchased from them.
