A good alternative to the Radian (YX600) gauges, might be the XJ700 gauges. They made the XJ700 in 1985 and 1986, here in the US. It used the same 4-cylinder engine and should have the same tach signal. It did use a 19" front wheel, so there may be speedometer discrepency.

I just ordered a Radian cluster and will be here next weekish... My next question is, is there a wiring diagram that I will need to follow or is it plug n play? Man I can't wait to get this thing finished..

Unfortunately, its not plug and play. The indicator bulbs and holders will pop right in so they require no wiring. The tach will need to be cut and wired to the Seca II harness. The bulb harnesses will need to be cut and wired too. I'll take pictures when I'm done.

EDIT: Here's a wiring diagram I made for adapting Radian gauges to the Seca II harness:

Reviving an old thread.
Waiting around for a 96 fairing may prove fruitless, so I'm looking at going naked.

What gauges, aftermarket (Vapor, Acewell, etc) included, require the least rewiring. I'm not very good at electrical stuff and I'd like to do the minimum of cutting on my stock wiring harness.
Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

the fz600 gauges are a direct swap on the wiring harness. they can easily be mounted in some autometer cups too. there's a decent amount of people on here that have done this including myself, greeny, ride92, radare, drapheus and others check out some project threads.
