97 900rr speedometer replacement
All but one of the mounting tabs on my gauge cluster are broken off. It appears as though the last person tried to use some foamy type of adhesive to repair it. I'm not sure if roughing the surface and using a 2 part plastic resin will be strong enough to hold the tabs in place.
I've found one new lower case for it and i'd have to transfer all wires and internals over but i'd be keeping my gauges. I've also found one with busted gauges but everything else is fine. These two options are about $50 plus shipping.
Lastly, there's used units for $150+ shipping. I can see the wiring work just fine but I've never taken one of these clusters apart to see how difficult it is to transfer internals. I like the idea of the speedo having actual miles (although there's no telling how long it was -1/+2 so it's not actual anyways) but then again, my speedo needle bounces all over. I don't know if that's the fault of the gauge or the sensor. Would a new cluster fix the speedo issue? Is transferring the internals over worth my time? Would resin be strong enough to hold the unit in place (previous owner used a zip tie to keep it in place)?
Also, the 95 gauge cluster has the same mounting holes and connectors. The only difference is that the 95 has words for the light functions instead of symbols. Other than making the bike look more dated, probably nobody would notice it's not the proper year for the bike. Just an FYI for anyone wondering.
