Kawasaki KZ650 cafe-racer. Dashboard.

My general idea for Kawasaki KZ650 cafe-racer dashboard is to made it as invisible as possible for observer but at the same time still easy readable for rider. Thus I chose headlight with opening for gauge installation.

I like needle tachometers and in my opinion tachometer is second most important indicator after oil pressure lamp, thus I chose “analogue looking” electronic MMB 48mm tachometer to fit the slot in the headlight.

The choice of speedometer was not so simple. However, the question was sold once I stumbled upon Motogadget  motoscope mini in my web search. It turned out to be even better than on web photos : very nicely made and  very small, but easy readable gauge.

And sure, the gauge set wouldn’t be complete without oil temperature gauge, simple, but very useful thing.

Usually geography of my purchases quite wide, but this time Germany provided all components I needed for dashboard, except indicators’ lamps. I have intention to make indicators in same way as I made them on my Kawasaki Zephyr 750 cafe-roadster project.
