Dave's Cycle Supply sells a combo gear indicator/voltmeter/air temp cluster for 1990-2000 1500's. WingAdmin built a computer for his 1500 that shows just about everything from speed, engine oil pressure, temp, voltage output and gear indicator. Don't know that what else is on the market, unless he decides to sell his.

The company that made them got sued out of existence, unfortunately. I am not selling my unit, it's strictly a one-off that I made for myself.

Have a look at the Acewell range of motorcycle instruments. I have no relationship with them, but they seem to do most of the things that you require. Have a look at the 5xxx range, from memory. But it doesnt take too long to go through their range of products, and there is a dealer in California.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Daves has the D&M, that's the one I have.

It would be hard now to ride without it, I'd never know what gear im in without it.

You need to buy the cover too or you'll never see it in the sun
