Another MacGyver Gen 1 Dash
I made a Dash with: A Cooling Fan Over-Ride Switch, A 12V Accessory (Cigarette Lighter) Plug, An Alternator Output Ammeter, A System Voltmeter and a Dual USB Plug.
Hope this post helps anyone attempting something like this.
The template is attached (which I acquired on either this or another BB) resize so the square when printed in 1" X 1" and it will work. The Dash Panel as well as the Mounting Tabs are made from Sheet Metal. This was primed and painted flat black except the face of the dash which is in a wrinkle finish black. The Marine Grade: Switch, Plugs and Volt/Ammeter were all acquired (cheaply) via Amazon. There is no more than about $30.00 total invested in this.
The dimensions of the Mounting Tabs are shown in one picture.
The modifications made to the Wind Screen in order to accommodate the above Mounting Tabs are shown and should be self-explanatory. These modification were made with a hand file.
The fasteners are all metric 5mm X 1.0 button head screws with allen head fittings.
Included is a wiring diagram of how this is connected to the bike.
If any questions? Feel free to shoot me a PM.
