parts unlimited can now get koso gauges, are they worth a shit?
there gp style universal tach with temp gauge looks nice and is in my price range and has the same redline as my factory tach, also it has a temp gauge. http://www.kosonorthamerica.com/
depends on what you are putting it on. If you had an older sport bike with electic readouts for speedo, tach, and idiot lights and wanted to add a shift light and other track based goodies it seems like a decent setup (although to be fair, $400 is a lot to spend on gauges).
If you were putting this on an older bike with mechanical outputs for these things - well it aint worth it.
For a street bike I would rather have an analog speedo since I will actually look at it. on a track bike the LCD speedo doesn't make a difference. I just hate digital readout speedos - it is a personal preference.
the price for that gauge on koso's website is $199. Again, what kind of bike are we talking about here? if it has a temp gauge I already think it is pretty modern.
To be honest, Stack gauges are about the same price without the temp readout and I would rather have the stack than the koso, but for the money it isn't bad, espically if you are getting a stepper motor gauge.
I think it looks pretty good. It should do the job and has some features I like. I downloaded the installation and set up instructions. Looks like you could dial it in for about any application, and with its own battery, it should work on anything. Get one and let us know what you think. It might be just the ticket for a CB350 or XL500 racebike.
i'll have to order it. stepper motors are generally good stuff i believe. comes with the temp gauge sensor also.
its the middle gauge on page 10 of the motorcycle gauges. msrp is 152. i will have to check out stack gauges.
having just bought the 20000rpm tach for a different application, their products are pretty decent. The model I purchased came with the sensor for the speedo/odometer, 2 temp sensors, and the tach could sense in 4-5 different was (digital output, inductance, ground monitoring, positive monitoring(not sure about that one))
the instructions are a little confusing, as they seemed translated from korean, to french, to english... but quality/look... they're pretty impressive
I picked up a used KLR650 to add to my fleet and replace my old 93 DR650. I got a really good deal from the original owner up in San Francisco. I purchased this for a couple of reasons... First... Me and my son want to do some adventure riding. He's going to pick up a KLR himself and sort it...
just a quick hello my name is Steve and im a bikeaholic.
been messing around with bikes for years but im NOT a mechanic, more of a muchanic, meaning that i muck about till something works.
Look forward to joining in
