Front end gone...

After a crash Saturday the front end of my 2001 sprint st 955i is totally gone...
My question is how/what do I have to do to get her up and running again without a dashboard and if I just bang on basic headlights, indicators,speedometer ???

DEcosse may answer better than me but regarding what he posted in the past I think the dashboard is not needed for stating the bike up. You may even put a speed triple dashboard.

DEcosse will confim. Alternatively you may find related info using the search feature w/ dashboard for instance.

Are you OK BTW?

Hi Fredsprint...I took a bit of a tumble and I'm a bit bruised and battered but no broken bones..be off work for three to six weeks depending on how fast I heal...
My bike is my main concern...
Too expensive to replace everything but not willing to give up on the bike just yet after all the effort that was put into it by me and DEcosse to get her running nicely...
She won't ever look the same again but too good a bike to be scrapped..
So any help and advice would be great.....

Glad you are okay. My bike looked nearly exactly like yours three days ago after my crash. Luckily, I have a spare 2005 ST parts bike and its all back together and running great. Here is something to think about. I destroyed my front end as well, to include my instrument panel. My bike WOULD NOT start without the instrument cluster hooked up. Even my 2005 dash would not work in my 2008 ST. Problem being, it was explained that they have different ECU's, and the 2008 can't communicate with the 2005 dash. My lights would all work, but the bike would not do it's complete diagnostics check when I turned my key on, including wouldl not prime the fuel pump, and it wouldn't even try to turn over the engine.

Perhaps the older ST's like yours won't be an issue.

I agree with Fredsprint, DEcosse is pretty dang knowledgeable.

Get well!

Jwood..hopefully like me you didn't get too badly injured...
Glad you managed to sort your bike out..your lucky..
I've seen bikes that have been converted into street fighter type bikes so I know that it is possible..
I just lack the knowledge to make it happen...I don't want to start joining wires together and set the bike on fire or anything daft like that....

Sorry to hear that Duck' - glad you're here to talk about it though!

Bike will start as is - does not need instruments connected on your model

You have lots of choices for replacement instruments - if going naked (which I would expect) something like these Daytona (not related to Triumph in this case!) Velona gauges are good value - the person who responded to an inquiry I made on behalf of a friend was extremely helpful with prompt reply. https://www.digital-speedos.co.uk/gauges-c4/daytona-m4
You can go with a matching pair, or they even have multi-function single units too.
I can validate what will work if you choose something from those (they have lots of other brands too - look around their site) and help you with how to wire up on your Sprint.

You could also go with an OEM Sprint RS gauge if you can find one on EBay

This is a nice all-in-one - https://www.digital-speedos.co.uk/ga...light-etc-p558 - don't know if you want to spend that much
Koso units are quite inexpensive

Something like this for headlight - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-Inch-Mo...YAAOSw3ZBamDTj (shop around - that's just example)

If you need forks, triple tree, bars and risers and a front fender I have them. I just put a hayabusa front end on so these are just laying around. No clocks though but I saw a sprint for sale for $500 but it’s an RS turned into a drag bike. It’s in the Carolinas on CL.

GO CHIEFS!!! I’m with Mahomes!

@jer5ak - @Duckadiledundee is in UK

If I understood correctly, forks wheel etc are OK, just the plastics, lights and instruments that bore the brunt - nice looking out for a fellow member though.

It might be better to check the frame and headstock is still straight and OK before spending any money. Hopefully, it will be OK - good luck.
