Laugh Dash back plate...the way BMW would have wanted it to look...for the twins...

Hey guys a built a dash plate for my F800gs. Here there was intrest in me making more for the inmates and my 16 year old son could use some part time work so here we go. $40 shipped to you door here in the US. (non-powered coated version)
$10 over my cost (to give my son a little job - he used to ship my Power Controllers) for a "non powered coated unit"

BTW -The final version has two more holes I added for the gauge vents plugs.


I will get some prices for powered coat by next week hopefully.


the back story here.....

So after a simple design drawing, somewhat following the contour lines of the gauge design, and some jig saw magic - here it is.



added a hole for my aux lights...



Test with the shield in place...






flat blacked it...



quick fit the black plate it see what it looked like...


finish... bad lighting in the shop....


I have a new voltmeter on its way... I will update when I have it installed!
And my dog "Fuzz Nuts" Approves!

Laugh recommended install...

The new water jet cut plate... very nice piece....


What you need to install your plate? Takes about 15 Minutes...
T40 to remove the 2 headlight bolts
T20 to remove the 8 windshield bolts
A good set of fingers to remove the clip washer retainer that hold the gauge cluster.


I installed velcro on the wind shield frame...


I installed garden hose washers on the back of the gauge cluster...


this should insure no rattling...
