Speedometer needles needed was created by eurotourer
On the R75/6 I am restoring the speedo needle is orange and the tach needle is white (non BMW) but it's a motometer tach.
I contacted US as well as German companies with no luck. I want the needles to match.
Alibaba Express offers some but you have to sign up for membership with pages of fine print, forget that.
Can anyone tell me where I can get needles that fit Motometer , I would appreciate it.

You already have 2 that you know fit. Pop them off and paint them. Or, mask very carefully and paint them in situ.

if you do, could you contact me through my membership email.
In case you don't have access to it I'll make up a disposable email address.
Let me know please. Thanks

Sorry for the long wait.

Of the 2 needles I have, 1 is busted. The other has a tapered needle that passes thought the round center and come out the other side for about 6mm. So my "good" needle is nothing like either of yours.

Ain't that the way it goes ! :P
