    Hey folks, I decided I would like to put window bars on my bike, and I still have the stock speedo/ tach bracket. It looks like it will clear the new bars (by eyeballing it) but I am not sure it will look the best. I guess I am wondering:

    a) If I get a single bracket, what happens to the wire going to the tach?
    b) If I leave the stock bracket on, do you think it will look okay?
    c) Any other ideas? I thought of a side mount speedo as well.

    Thanks for any responses. :)

    That site is really cool. :D I will have a better look at it, but if you just go to the Sportster/ Dyna part it just has things for '04+ :(

    Thank you. :D

    If you retain the stock clocks i think the window bar will obscure a wee bit of each so it might be better to loose the tach
    if you do that wrapping the end of the connectors with some waterproof tape and tucking it away may be an answer

    Ah, thanks for the idea. :p

    I am looking at options for a new speedo bracket (side mount mostly). If I ride for a little bit sans speedometer/ odometer and tachometer, would it still log the miles I ride (despite the actual gauge not being attached)?

    Again, thanks.
