87 Aspencade instrument cluster removal

Post by RS23V0G » Fri Jul 05, 2019 12:08 pm



I'm swapping the fairing on my 87Aspencade with one off of an 84 Aspy. The replacement is pretty much bare, just a few harnesses in it. Does anyone know what the procedure is to remove the instrument cluster? Thanks!

It's been a while since I had one out, but if I remember right, there are 4 mounting studs that protrude into the area behind the headlight. The ones that I have done most recently would be an '84 and I'm sure that they are that way. Not completely positive that it's the same way on an '87. I just know that the cluster itself (wiring) is different on the '84 than the other years of 1200

Thank you! I did finally find the studs after removing the harnesses. I thought there might be some differences so I appreciate the heads up. Gonna be fun installing those harnesses.......
