Chapter 12 - Gauges, Part 2
Next up, the EGT and wideband gauges. Both are 52mm gauges for use in cars. I wanted maximum visibility for both my eyes while I'm riding, and for any video footage when I'm trying to extract data. Used some 22-gauge mild steel here. The Vapor uses 6mm bolts to go through the 8mm threaded handlebar clamp holes in the fork top plate, and this gauge mount plate bolts to those 6mm bolts underneath the top plate, kinda acting in the place of washers. At some point I will probably fabricate some sorta wraparound sheet to cover the bare gauge bodies when viewing from the front - also probably wouldn't hurt if I end up getting rained on while riding.
Here you can see some of the switches for the bike. The switch on the gauge cluster itself will power the gauges and the wideband controller. Lower right, on the aluminum bracket, is for lights, and lower left is for high beam. Made the mounts out of ~1/8" flat stock, they bolt into the lower handlebar clamp holes.
