Thread: SHO gauges

Anyone have a review of the SHO instrument panel.
I'm not looking for a kiss-ass review... just one of what you have noticed in bright sunlight, usability, or just hate/love it.
PM me if you are embarrassed to post it.

I have a 'Cruiser' that's got all the 'bling' on the dash, but I never use it.
The tacho/speedo was set to tacho setting by me when first bought, and on the left of that there is the digital speed readout in our case KPH that I keep an eye on. Fuel gauge is there and worth watching though----of course.
Some people seem to love all the stuff and info-----I don't care-----just like to go for a ride.

I have no problems with mine, even during bright sunlight.

Jpack, a Good way to prevent the need to switch between mph/PRM's is keep the big analog on RPM and use the left-side digital for dreamometer for speed (thats what the GPS is for). I'm more concerned of what the big guy is doing (i.e. motor as I am pretty adept at gauging my speed w/o a speed meter unless I'm getting pounded in rough chop offSHOre. The clear cover on the instrument cluster is very good, A little Rain-X on the face keeps any spotting/salt residue off.
I have never been a big fan of digital gauges even tho the SHO gauge is very good as far as visibilty in variable sunlit conditions.
I think the FZR gauge cluster is the nicest ive seen so far......2 big analogs letting u know whats happening at all times...just like a motorcycle................just my .02

Yeh I hear you on the fuel meter thing. It's not that big of a deal as I don't cover extremely long distances. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I can see rpm's on digi and speed on analog, and vise-versa. I could be wrong as this weekend has been quite the blur and my brain is in serious need of some rest.

The analog gauge can change between RPM and speed(mph/kmh)
To the left of the analog gauges, i do believe it only remains at speed. And there has all the warning indicators etc, hours/volts.
If you have the cruiser, the right side, has fuel consumption, odometer (resets when you turn off the engine) time travelled, air temp, water temp, average speed. compass. And i think 1 or 2(maybe more) other things.
Also a nice feature is you can change the units, like gallons to litres, kilometres to miles etc..

Has anyone converted the dash of a regular SHO to th ecruisers dash? Im wondering what all would be needed to do so. I really like the idea of knowing the air and water temps, and I would like to move the air sensor to the inlet pipe of the engine after the intercooler to constantly know actual IATs.
