I don't think you are allowed. When I changed my instrument cluster, I pulled the whole speedo assembly out of my original one and put it in the L2 cluster so I had it reading the correct K's.

Go for it, just use a small srewdriver and wind the thing till you get the right reading, no. by no. just don't touch the black surrounds on the gauges coz your fingerprints will mark it and never come off properly.

It's possible to do using a very small screwdriver, you can pull the cluster apart and using the screwdriver just slide the little locking spinny things out of the way (you'll see what I mean), and then you'll be able to adjust the numbers to what you want them to be.
