Am I the only person that has a hard time with the gauge cluster located so far to the right. I want to move it over to the left a couple of inches. I may have to take it apart and make a new bracket to relocate it a bit more towards the center. There is only just a few millimeters clearance to the master cylinder also.

The off center placement makes it easier to place a smart phone in the heads up zone...at least in theory...I haven't done his yet.

I made all of the bar measurements and all of the available Pro Taper type bars are too far off for me, so I am keeping the stock bars and mounting my handguards, Fasst Company dampner inserts, Pro Grip Superbike Gel grips, and driving lights switch. Stay tuned.

i like the Gauge Cluster on the right it makes it different from other bikes and makes it stand out and the bike is so awesome i can get used to some quirks nice to have something that doesn't fit in the same old cookie cutter mold as all the other bikes and easy to access the key... my 2 cents lol...

Steve, where do you want it to be? Probably will be a while before such a thing is on the market, and I doubt riders will agree with where it should be lol. I want it down by the key deck. Your best bet is make your own re-locator, it is doable.

I'd say at the same level but centered....I'm waiting for someone to make a professional looking bracket for this but no one has one up just yet. I'd think there'd be a market for it too.
