Okay well this thread will be a how to/write up on converting our watercooled guage to 2001+ guages.
with pictures.. yes folks pictures lol.
Things you will need.
Gauges 40-200$ ( i paid 40 with scuffed clear cover been polished out however)
speedo sensor 30-60$ shipped
SPEED SENSOR BOLT no more than 15$ ( ebay jmrmotorsports had them)
aluminum or other suitable material 3x8 for bracket and 1 2x3 piece.
1. 2 inch flat washer small hole you'll enlarge later.
4 bolts with 2-4 matching nuts
2 5/8's or bigger spacers about 1/4 long.
( i used the fairing washer things looks like this =| ( had extra layin around)
1. expired bic pen or equivelent. ( dont ask yet)
rubber grommets/nuts from existing guages.
2 bolts for the above nuts. 1 inch long abouts.
this is picture with it mounted, front plate is off due to me polishing it up
first up is the bracket. This mounts on existing stay only slight modification to the original bracket is to bend it downwards towards headlights ( this is for master cycl could hit it on full left steering lock, usually with aftermarket clipons.
okay picture is the bracket, you dont need to make the fancy curves and whatnot well you do on the top part. picture is how it should be mounted. the 2 large holes are for the new gauges to mount to via push in rubber grommets.
The top most holes ( where black lines are ) is about stock setupup on mounting.
the second set of holes ( bottom pair of the black lined ones) is to push guages closer upward towards windshield/headlights about 3/4 of an inch. this is to clear aftermarket clip ons mounted below triple clamp. picture should be to scale in photoshop view as 110% for true scale. its about 6x3.
So you can print this and cut out/template.
