RT to Naked Instrument re-location
« on: September 15, 2018, 09:25:46 AM »
On the basis that get and you should give, I thought this post might be useful to others.

Essentially while converting my RT to Naked I wanted to keep the Fuel and Temp gauges in operation - but where to put them?

Well searching on here I saw a custom K1 with something similar though hand made from Alloy, so set about emulating at low cost.

Searched eBay and found a Dual instrument pod - $5
Re-routed wiring to side of Engine
Mounted both instruments in Pod
Secured pod to Air Intake on lower front right of Bike - bit fiddly to get nut and bolts in, drilled a small hole.

Though the result is neither Art nor perfect, both gauges are in operation for very little cost and a couple of hours of messing.
Hope that help - great to have a fuel gauge and temp gauge in action. Also guess others could get an RT instrument setup from a Bike to retro fit onto Bikes without these, though you'd need the wiring and sensors too of course - especially the Fuel sender in Tank.

Result.
