so, i just mounted clip-ons on my 500t and like the look other than the gauges angling up. wondering if anybody had changed gauge mounts or just simply bent the plate that the gauges mount to? then the ignition would angle up by itself and that might also look weird...anyway...anyone have any ideas? it would have to be something relatively easy since i don't have a garage to use (i live in Krooklyn).

Start looking for older headlight speedo housings on ebay. Lots of jap bikes used these in the 1960s (yamaha and honda espically). I prefer ones from a cb77 superhawk. You can hallow out the gauges and use them to mount your stock gauges. There is a company that makes a repo ducati headlight shell that mounts a speedo nicely. the key switch would also be in the headlight.
