Has anyone relocated their instrument cluster?

Recommended Posts

I'd be interested to know if anyone has moved their instrument cluster.

I quite like the look of the Gilles Tooling product (https://www.gillestooling.com/products/design-parts/style-parts/2021/speedometer-set-mt07) but I'd like to know if it will work with the Yamaha Sports Screen (https://yshop.yamaha-motor.com.au/products/sports-screen-0) as I really like what the protection that the screen provides.... it's surprising how effective it is.

Ive got the same screen and i doubt it'll fit under it. I can barely get my gloved hand to the key with it installed. I could be wrong but it looks too bulky for that particular screen

I have to update my build thread on it, most of it got cut off during the merge to the new forum. Here's a couple of pics. can easliy leave the full "touring" size on there for actual wind protection.

Hi mate,

Where was your build thread? I can't seem to find it.

I reckon it might be able to fit with your setup... I could always put longer attachment bars on for it I guess.

That looks awesome... and my favourite colour combo too... damn I wish these weren't so scarce here!

 

Any ideas on if this would work with the Yamaha windscreen?

 

If yes, I would recommend putting up the bracket on thingiverse... I'd buy one that was well machined.

Yeah, I'd buy one if it worked.

I'm interested to what comes from this, its a great solution for an oversight by Yamaha that I'd love to do to my FZ-07.

It wouldn't surprise me if more people have moved the cluster forward than left it stock. Bad spot, bad angle.

It's really horrible.

I've actually just taken my Yamaha Sports Screen off (just to test what it's like without it) and I'm happy... so I reckon I'll move the cluster forward.

does anyone have pics of the OEM yamaha windscreen brackets? I reckon spacers/fab can be made to make it worked like mine did.

I relocated mine, but never got around to fitting a windscreen of any type to cover it. However, I found the gauge to be very distracting at night with how bright it is. Seemed like it reduced my vision at night since it was messing with how my eyes would focus...hard to explain. Kinda like always having oncoming traffic shining headlights at your eyes. It was really nice having it easily in my field of vision, but it glared off my visor, especially if my visor was the least bit dirty. Ended up putting it back where it came from.

I found it in the owner's manual:

To adjust the brightness

1. Turn the key to "OFF".

2. Push and hold the left set button.

3. Turn the key to "ON" and continue

pushing the left set button until the

display switches to the brightness

control mode.

4. Push the right set button to set the

brightness level.

5. Push the left set button to confirm

the selected brightness level and

exit the brightness control mode.
