Not sure the right name but you guys get the point, looking to swap the bulky stock ones to maybe a electronic one, anyone do it? Any suggestions? Guides? Thanks in advance

The challenge with swapping the speedometer with an electric one is the bike has a gear driven speedo.
In order to do an electric speedo you'd need to either have to find a unit that converted the mechanical motion into electrical pulses *or* you'll have to put a magnet and a pickup and try to calibrate it (think how you put a speedometer on a bicycle.)

There are a few threads here of folks who have installed an aftermarket (or from another bike) cluster, but they are usually "off" and require some fiddling with.
