    Anyone know of any good bar mounted, dash options? 
    They'll be going on T Bars. Tank mounted isn't an option due to setup, and because they're useless on my other bike with a fullface. 

    Number 1 pick at the moment is the MotoGadget unit. Its OK value (its exxy but not as exxy as others), will look slick smack bang in the middle of the bars without being too obvious, has HEAPS of functionality and doesn't look dated like its off a OCC knock off bike.

    I REALLY like this setup, but the price is insane. $1200USD... The Autometer guages are crazy. So never going to happen:

    Unfortunately I absolutely cannot stand this style of dash, so its completely ruled out (and when priced similarly to the Motogadget, its not even in the running)

    I dont mind the stock dual style guages but as they're analog they're quick deep so can stand out. 

    Not sure if theres any other guage setups out there I haven't seen or should be considering before I pull the pin.

    The top one will be bloody hard to see in sunlight.  Thats the problem with LED displays like that.
    I'm in the same market as you, but I'm just going to relocate the Speedo to the left side of the bike somewhere s I do not want any guages up top.

    By all accounts the motogadget is brilliant even in direct sunlight.

    Ah well then it’s a hard choice.  I just dislike a cluttered handlebar area so was looking at these too with the intent of building one into the riser itself so it was discreet.  I know of one company that also has stuff integrated into the mirrors as well, so that might be worth a look at.
    Also I’m going with these chaps for my final control buttons. http://www.gripace.com/Custom/GripAceCRUISERbrochure2014.pdf

    None of this is cheap though.  My ideal bars added up to about $3,500 in the end so I’m having to be a little more pragmatic.

    Ive seen this custom setup using the mini motogadget built into a mount that was welded into the bar. Very clean.

    I reckon ill just bite the bullet and go for the Motoacope, since ill be using a motogadget M Unit for wiring setup. 
    Good guages are just as expensive, if not more, and still won't have similar functionality.

    I'm really happy with running the power vision up high.

    I wear a full face all the time and looking down at the tank mounted dash isn't ideal

    The more data the better and a this gives me a dozen or more customiseable dash screens and as a added bonus its also my tuner.

    What would be awesome are say 5 LEDs that can be pre-programed for speed at say 40, 60, 80, 100 and 110 km/hr.  Thats all i would need.  The rev limiter takes care of RPM capping.  Indicators are self cancelling anyway. If you cannot find neutral without a green light then perhaps get a car. or keep the neutral/oil/high beam if they are ADR needs.

    Sorry just came across this thread. That’s what I call electronic feedback. Tells you you’ve just had a scare.

    I’ve got friends who have had less than great experiences with motogadget, especially on twins and singles, great on smooth revving 4cyls though.
    Read around do some research before cashing up.

    Yeah I think you've mentioned it before, they're very commonly used to rewire FXRs so im pretty comfortable. I'll be buying locally for warranty reasons though.

    What bikes where your friends using them on?
