I found this I'm going to try this tonight. Po has 850 wrote down on the acewell manual. If that's what I get then I'm stumped and will likely switch away from digital.

I added mounts to my headlight brackets to support the gauges.

So my measurement and cable count figure Came out to 742. So I'm waiting patiently to get rid of snow to get the xj out and try. Pretty confident it's more accurate since there was a 100 diff between his and mine. :drapheus:

REVIVE!

So I wanted your thoughts and expertise.

I've just ordered this Radian dash on eBay:

I am trying to figure out what to do about the gauges. If I got the FZ600 gauges and put them in the autometer cups, would it be pretty easy to mount them on the above, or are they more of a stand-alone deal when in the cups?

I am open to non-FZ600 gauges too, of course. Basically I am looking for anything that will mount okay to the Radian dash and be reasonably easy to integrate with my Divvy.

I'd really like to pull the trigger on the gauges soon, which is why I am hoping to draw on community wisdom rather than waiting till the Radian dash arrives in the indeterminate future. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

You might be able to mount the autometer cups on that dash unit. It will all depend on how much "room" there is to attach the mounting bracket to the brackets already there. I don't know how those radian dashes are assembled but it might be possible to remove or drill out the mounting the screws from the dash and insert a longer one that will also hold the gauge cups.

I did that same dam thing and I either failed in my attempt or was to particular (apparently still frustrated). So I hunted for the Radian speedo and tach and finally ended up buying two damaged sets to make a complete set. Looks nice and almost like it belongs. I still have a little finessing to do.

Have anyone here any information about using the XJR 1200 Gauge for naked conversion on the Diversion?

It looks nice and is easy to find on eBay. I wounded if it would work on the XJ 600 Diversion -94

Thanks!

Thanks andrewed1 for fixing the image!

I hope it will fit, but my concern is if the speedometer will differ to much, I looked at the table in the first post and saw that one of the factors is the rim size, and the XJR 1200 also have 17'' rims but with different width.

The XJ600 dosn't have a fuel gauge so I was thinking of putting a regular clock there instead.
