Boano Fairing & Instrument Panel

G'day Jeff,

Good to here the kit has arrived. Just taken mine to the paintshop today - will be a few weeks though, due home the week before Christmas.

Were you planning on using the original TA instrument cluster or something aftermarket? The reason I ask is that I had planned to use the original TA unit. That was until I realised the speedo cable is way too short
So.... I've ordered a KOSO RX2 from Jarno Boano.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Dan.

Jeff,

Join up with us Riff-Raffers. You'll get the stickies for free along with a great cold weather shirt from Klim.

I wore mine down to the local MX track last weekend. All the kids saw this old guy with all these wierd patches on his shirt and started doing all kinds of wacky sky-shots where I was standing. Had to move 'cause someone was going to get hurt. I guess they thought I was some kinds scout or something.

Great build-up and an amazing fairing. Makes me want another TA to build up all skinny and light like a rallye bike.
