Vapor is a good gauge, it works fairly well and is fairly easy to wire up. Expect the tach to be a little jumpy.

The SV clone headlight that is normally suggested is the Delkevic round, but I would look for an OEM Suzuki round for a better light output.

A couple of week ago I noticed my Seca was leaking oil from the filter, so after inspecting it I noticed the filter was a bit loose and I tightened it. Today I started her up and it's leaking again from the same spot.... What would be the reason that it's leaking?

Cant find a stock look speedometer so I'm leaning towards

Any input from you guys would be great
I have a new oem speedo for sale in the classifieds. I imported it to do a conversion, but I bought a Guzzi instead.

There's a big o-ring between the block and the oil-filter flange. If it leaks, you'll get drips there too. Can you see if its coming from the filter or if its coming from between the filter plate and the block?

Not sure what brand oil filter you have but some brands do not seem to work well on the seca (i.e. leak prone)...Fram is one brand that comes to mind. I stopped using that brand many years ago. Hiflo filtro and Emgo worked well.
