Colored Gauges

Just wondering if anyone can help me out here. A few years back I bought a gauge overlay for my 929 from a place in Canada that made them for all kinds of bikes. I am looking to get one for my 954, but can not remember where or who the place was that I got them from. Any help? Thanks.

Re: Colored Gauges

I had red LEDs put in my 954 gauges about a year ago by BlueGauges. Very quick turn around, quality workmanship; but you can't tell anything has been done during the daytime. Not for me, since I rarely ride at night. Not trying to talk anyone into or out of having this done--just an FYI.

When you did ride at night, how did they look? Could you still see the gauges ok?

They looked cool being red, as I have a red '02 954. Everything is still very legible.

Did you get an ilumiglo for your gauge or did ou keep it stock. I'm thinking of gettin the ilumiglo just to make it distinctive so i'm not just looking at all red.

I think it's like $40.00 bucks to just do the red LEDS and $55.00 for the blue. I had both the LEDs and the Ilumiglo face plate done for $130.00 (just like roadrash did). They look great at night, and really pictures just don't do them justice. Scott at Blue Gauges does a great job. He answered all my questions quickly and got my gauge cluster back to me in like 3 days.
