Could one of you RC51 owners please post the length & height of your tach? I've got a dumb little idea in my head, and want to make sure things will fit before I buy an expensive OEM Honda part /images/icons/smile.gif

Sorry nom....I would definitely run out to the garage for you right away but there is this strange gap where my ZX-9R used to be and my new 2002 RC-51 ain't yet! haha Can't help for a couple more weeks.


Wheelies don't necessarily make you a squid, but bitchin about em' sure makes you a sissy!

Gunther, didn't you mean to say that you are blind? Blind because you finally saw the light and bought a <font color=red>HONDA./images/icons/wink.gif

I'm at work! /images/icons/smile.gif But I promise that I'll run out to the garage as soon as I get home and post the dimensions.
(Now where did I put that tape measure????)

I'd love to help you out, but I'm in the same boat as BD. My bike is resting at home after playing all day in the canyons yesterday./images/icons/smile.gif

Geez, don't be so apologetic /images/icons/laugh.gif... it's not like I'm in any sort of hurry. In case you're all wondering, my silly little idea is to put the RC51 tach/gauge panel on my VFR. All the values emitted by the various sensors (heat, fuel, speed, etc) are the same, and I desperately need something smaller than the 3-lb. VFR cluster. The 954 clipons hit the old cluster, not to mention the Brembo radial master cylinders (won't even allow the wheel to turn w/ the stock cluster installed).

Yes, in case you were wondering, I am insane. /images/icons/cool.gif

Hmmm.. I got a different measurement. THe case of my tach/speedo is 7-1/2 inches across, and 2-3/4 inches high. That doesn't include the little panel of indicator lights at the bottom left (neutral/hi-beam/signals)
This is off a 2001 model - maybe they made it smaller to save weight /images/icons/crazy.gif

I included the idiot lights in my height measurement and the widest part was just under 8" ( I rounded up /images/icons/wink.gif ) . The '00 and '01 s are identical.
