    Instruments

    Has anyone installed one of these speedo clusters? and if you have is it worth it or not. My speed sensor is dead and I am trying to decide if it is worth it to buy a new one on eBay or just get one of these which has its own speed sensor. Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I’d get the tach/speedo. You could just mount it directly on top of your factory cluster with some self tapping screws. It’ll look badass! I bet you’d pull some trim for sure.

    Ah man, where to start.... the more I read this, the more I roll my eyes.

    This gauge is mostly a tach. It goes to 12000 rpm, and it is designed for 2/4 cylinder motors. So, most of the gauge is going to be wrong, all of the time.

    Looking at the pictures, this sports a fuel gauge (which the Blast doesnt support), a gear indicator (which the Blast doesnt support).

    However it doesnt look like it supports a neutral light, high beam indicator, oil pressure light, or turn signals... all of which are functions you really need.

    Why not just get a digital bicycle speedometer? It even comes with a universal handlebar mount.

    Hey Neko! I've replaced the speed sensor on my Blast. It's super easy.

    Personally, I would NOT want to mess around with trying to get that "universal" gauge unit to work with the Blast's wiring harness. The gauge may be universal, but I guarantee that it's going to be a massive pain in the butt to make work right (and - as 34:19 has mentioned - the Blast doesn't even support the majority of the "features" that this universal gauge is offering).

    I'll agree with what Mike said: Just buy the speed sensor (available here: https://st-paul-harley-davidson-buel...eed-sensor-l9c), chuck it in, and get back on the road.

    What this guy said!!! +100 for Dozerboy!

    That speed sensor looks like it was used in most XB’s also, so there should be a bunch of used ones out there.

    I conseed to wiser riders.

    My biggest issue with the stock instruments is the lack of a tach. I don't HAVE to have one I just don't like that it doesn't. I may look at getting a cheap one and wiring it in.
