Default CBR F2 street fighter gauges/headlight..?

Hello all, I recently purchased this F2. I am really happy with it, except for the headlight/gauge area...its hella ghetto (yes I said hella).

Any recommendations on kits or a place I can purchase the parts? I wanna keep the stock dash (if possible), just because I like that it's analog and it has all working indication lights. Thoughts? I would love to see some pics if ya got em.

Thanks,

I'm still using the stock cluster on my bike, just cut off the temp gauge to make them smaller. Find yourself a proper headlight and not one of the cheap eBay jobbies, and buy some 41mm headlight mounts from eBay or your local shop. You can make nice headlight mounts from an old set of clipons also.

I got the stock gauge cluster to fit with only trimming it a little bit. However its being held on with zip-ties, kind of embarrassed to admit that, but it is holding really well. I want it to be cleaner though.

@RageHardIntoTheBendies hey do you have a pic of your setup? Trying to get some ideas for how to go about this headlight and re-mounting the gauge cluster more properly.

@reddoctor - Clip on are the standard slip on handle bars.

There are some pics of my setup in my build thread - https://cbrforum.com/forum/street-fighters-105/f2-fighter-rotch-crocket-126405/

I made a simple bracket that attaches to the mounting points for the ignition barrel, it's the top mount for lights as well as for the gauges and bug screen.
