The Hawk I have does not have any instruments. I would like to get a set of guages. Since it has a F2 frontend do I need to get a F2 speeo or does it not matter. Also does anyone know a good place to find a guage cluster cheap.

I've seen a few Hawks where people just used the stock Tach and mounted a Bicycle speedometer next to it and calibrated it for the front wheel size. It has a trip meter, odo and speedo....

That is what is on there now. If I could get the whole setup cheaply I would if not I atleast want the tach. Hell I don't even know where the thing red lines at.:confused

Yeppers , its 8200 . I have a GSXR tach as I'm running a 10.2 ECU ( er , not a good thing if you aren't a big fan of broken cranks lol ) but pretty much ANYTHING will work with a little splicing . It couldn't possibly look any more ghetto , but I finally added a Sigma speedo to mine mounted on a piece of street sign . I guess I'll actually tidy it up over the winter ...
AZmotosports and Motomorphic both sell a nice little tach panel for $25 that'll accept an OEM or most everything else tach . Just see what you can find on Ebay - stick with Honda and it'll prolly hook right up but don't hold me to it ;)

Damn , that's a pretty horrible picture :eek: I just have the tach mounted so that the *redline* is straight up . BTW , you WILL bounce off the rev limter a time or six with the Hawk - don't sweat it , but with a stock motor you're roughly at the same peak all the way from ~ 6500 so it doesn't really need to live up there either .
