929 gauge housing broke- use 954 gauges or replace housing?

I dropped my bike going around a corner at about 40mph 2 weeks ago, caused a lot of damage to the front upper fairing area- the brackets that hold the fairing and gauge cluster got bent and snapped the tabs off on my gauge.

The gauge still works fine so I was wondering if it's possible to buy a new/aftermarket housing somewhere rather than replace the whole thing? If not, would I be able to put the 954 style setup on mine? I think the functions are all the same but I like the way it looks.

Thanks,
-P.J

Know anyone with a 954 that would let you pull the gauge cluster and see? No way of knowing if the plug from the harness is the same without having both.

They are not interchangeable, different connectors and mounts.

i dont think you need those tabs ... just use the bolt through it and it will be tight enough to do the job

Yeah if the part where the bolt goes were completely intact I think that would work. Problem is that part of that broke too- if the tabs were okay it would definately hold but I wouldn't be so sure without them(I could probably ghetto- rig it but that's my bike I'm talking about!).

I guess there's no chance at just getting the housing and not the internals? I like the idea of not having to explain the mileage when I sell the bike- unless someone has a used gauge with exactly 4700 miles on it!
