Question Digital Instrument Cluster?

Hey I am looking to replace my instruments with digital, but I'm having issues finding a good fit. Any ideas?

Me thinks it would be a Ninja 650, since it's in the 650 section and that's what his avatar is

The 09 has a digital dash, it may tun out to be a plug right in and work. The surround is shaped differently though. People have also swapped to ZX6R dashes, you will need a speedohealer for that.

You could also try one of the Vapor displays, lots of guys use them on ATV's, and they aren't really expensive: http://trailtech.net/vapor.html

Just imagine how much that would be from kawasaki, if a seat is 200-300 bones. I too am in need of a digital dash. I posted a link on the other 650 forums, but they are about 350 bucks. I think that the zx6 cluster is one of the cleanest looks.

I don't see the new dash pluging right into the 06-08 650's, though it'll have to wait till someone tries it to comfirm. Seems with the addition of the fuel guage the connections would need to change to make room. With the new guage I am not really liking the fuel guage being bigger than the RPM numbers, and it seems as though there is enough room for a gear position indicator...

the 636 is a direct plug in, true, but still needs a speedohealer

This guy has done it. He used the guage from an 05 636.

Is this seriously the new cluster on the 09 650r? I don't like.... not one bit, and I was sooo looking forward to the upgraded cluster. Not even a gear indicator?
