Optional dashboard gauges

Postby Clemmennt » Fri Dec 07, 2012 10:52 am



Hi!

I'm looking for some optional gauges (like a thermometer or altimeter) for few months to set on my dashbord.
So far, I have a clock and a voltmeter. There is two spare holes sealed by a plug. I asked Honda and they answered me that these optional features are no longer for sale.
I have searched for a long time in french suppliers but I can't find anything.

Do you know where I can get this type of stuff?

Thank you!

Clément.

[*]Salut!

If you are looking for new gauges, then ask google for VDO or Autometer.
Used you can find on ebay France or on junkyards in old cars.
They have the diameter you're looking for.

I just mounted a digital thermometer in the flat above the the locking cubbly on the right side. I tired into 12V on the fuse block and ran the temp sensor at the front of the fairing - works great.

Has anyone experience with inserting an oil pressure gauge?

Danke Michael!

VDO seems to be a good track. Also, I just think about marine gauges (because they are water proof and often round shape)

NKYwinger, I forgot to mention that I'm looking for gauges with pins like these which are mounted on harley dashboard. So I search inside harley kustom catalogs but most of the time, it's write "Harley dav.." onto! :?

Oil pressure gauge is a good idea instead of altimeter!

I keep you aware if I can find something but right now, I have to fix my cylinder head gasket!

See you!

Clément
