Thumbs up Dash Looks Great!

Wondering where to start, Looks like you have it figured out once you get it apart. I have looked at mine several times and gave up not knowing how it comes apart. Here are some pics of my dash. Could you give a summary of how to take it apart and remove the instruments. Also, Some of the black surround on the glass of the speedos is crackled and falling off, any suggestions on how to fix this greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is a thread of recent here about this very thing. Look around on the forum. Lots of good info.

Look for poster 'stealth 600rr' and his posts.

You may want to buy this dash and retrofit your instrument plate to it.

Also, the black surrounds on the speedos should twist off. Then, you can strip and refinish.

stealth, Great Job! could you drop me a quick reply with tips on how to remove the dash piece? Mine is not quite that bad, but I want to take the dash apart, but don't know how to attack it. Thanks

Seriously

I have been working on this exact problem. I've been to several fabricators and Apparently this is very difficult to duplicate. We really cant get the factory mold to make some more?

Did you leave the bed liner as the surface or recover it?
