    Default Installing RETB 350 meter console to Bajaj V 1.5

    Hi ,
    I am planing to modify the head lights and the meter console of my Bajaj V.
    Regarding the headlight, I am getting stock headlights of RETB which can be easily fitted with clamps.
    Regarding the change of meter console, Bajaj V have N-1-2-3-4-5 gear, where RETB having 1-N-2-3-4-5 gear pattern, so please suggest me whether it can be fitted or not..

    RETB digital meter doesn't have Gear indicator, it just has Neutral indicator as V15 does.

    it should be pretty straight forward Modd. but you will face issues in getting correst speed displayed in the Meter

    as wheel speed sensors will be diferent,

    to make this modd work,

    1) You will have to fiddle with Wiring- Most Mechanics won't do good Wiring.
    2) Replace wheel speedo cable with sensor from RETB.
    3) you will have to recalibrate the Speed sensor.

    Hi discoverVinu,
    Thanks for reply.
    My mechanic have a good relation with RE showroom and there he took my bike. RE guys are very much excited to see the V with RE parts. I will definitely update when the complete work will be done..
