    In an effort to get rid of the speedo/tach cluster on my handlebar clamp, I've been trying to find a speedometer that will fit in the fuel gauge spot on my 1986 FXRS.
    Is there anyone who knows a direct gauge replacement?
    The other option is to replace the dash. What replacement is best?
    Thanks

    Fuel gauge is 1 7/8" I was hoping to find a mech speedo that would fit. I have found several @ Drag Spec. don't know if without ordering if they will work.

    Thanks

    Sorry I didn't feel like going down to the garage to measure my fuel guage... I just took a guess.

    i don't think you will find anything in a mechanical speedo that will fit , you may find and electronic one that may or you can also try the badlands digital mirrors a tad expensive though

    I've since sold the bike, but I did find a solution. Bikers choice sells a 17/8 mechanical speedo. I removed the fuel gauge and was able to use that speedo. I secured it with the rubber grommet that held the speedo in the original gauge cluster cut to fit. Worked perfectly for 3000 miles before I sold the bike.
