    Gauges? We don't need no stinking gauges!

    So what are you guys running for a Tac and Temp light? (For Racing)

    If any?

    What should I be looking for? What can I get off other bikes that would work?

    well... you could run the "Gino" setup. no gauges at all. personally, i'm not man enough to go that far. i ran the stock gauge cluster this season with a disconnected speedo. i'll be running a programmable shift light and digital temp gauge next season (no tach, oil, neutral, etc).

    most people run a temp gauge and tach. if you use the stock tach you get a 2for1 deal since they're integrated. you just have to pull the tach out of the stock gauge cluster and fabricate a new mounting bracket

                When I checked out the price was actually $109 + ship or summat but I didn't care, it's still cheap.

                A friend of mine has one on his CRF250X so I got that version because once I saw it, I knew it would work. All you have to do is hook up the tach wire to the wire than runs the std. tach, and source 12v+. It also has an internal battery. Temp is easy... they give you a little billet gizmo that splices into a radiator hose, but the sensor itself looked like std. 10mmx1.0mm which should thread right into the thermostat housing just like a Daytona gauge or whatever. Speedo is by magnetic pickup that you mount to the caliper bracket, and a magnet that you glue to the rotor.

                          Okay... My set just arrived. Here's a look:

                          It's a little smaller than it looks on the website...

                              can anyone give me some other alternatives for gauges. I've looked at the vapor and acewell but I was wondering if anyone knew of any other ones.
