 ====== Tachometers ====== ====== Tachometers ======
-====== Relocating Gauges (Speedo / Tach) ====== 
-====== Headlight Eyebrow Mounted Gauges ====== 
- 
-===== The Zena Mod ===== 
-This is a relatively easy mod to raise the height of your instruments (when using taller risers). \\ 
-Otherwise, the gauges end up being too tall. \\ 
-The gauges are removed from the handlebar mount and bolted to the headlight eyebrow using deep chrome sockets. \\ 
-Cost is under #10. Done carefully, it looks like a factory install. \\  
- 
-  * Parts required: 
-    * (2) - chrome 8mm deep sockets (may be able to use other sizes) 
-    * (4) - stainless steel washers 
-    * (2) - 3" stainless steel allen bolts, \\ (same diameter as stock but longer to fit sockets accordingly. 3" bolts used below). 
- 
-  * Note: This mod should work without a hitch on the 883 std and 1200R. \\ 
-    * In some instances, folks have reported that the spacing between the holes on the gauge mount \\ did not line up perfectly with the holes on the eyebrow. 
-    * Most were able to quickly remedy the problem with a dremel or other comparable tool. \\  
-    * The mod will not work on stock 1200/883 Custom models without additional modification. ​

-====== Riser Mounted Gauges ====== 
-===== The ReddTigger Mod ===== 
-Speedo Mount for pullback risers. \\ 
-The biggest frustration is the angle of the stock mount that's used to mount onto the original handlebar clamp. \\  
- 
-  * Parts (total of about $20): 
-    * 2 chrome socket head screws. 
-    * 2 chrome acorn nuts. 
-    * 2 chrome washers. 
-    * 2 chrome cable clamps for 1" (or whatever size your risers are). 
-    * 2 small pieces of tubing. 
- 
-   * Place the tubing in the cable end of the clamp. 
-   * Attach clamp to riser as shown below. 
-   * Attach speedo using stock bracket (or any of your choice). 
-   * Insert socket head screws w/ washers through stock bracket into hose in clamp. 
-   * Secure with acorn nuts. \\ (the white stuff around the riser is some white electrical tape to prevent scratching) ((photos by ReddTigger of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=50229&​page=2))
