Arton Works Vintage Race Gauges on R

Put these on. Took some pictures so the all black R guys can spend some more money
1)Old Faces at night 2)New Faces off 3)New Faces powered up 4)New Faces in the dark.
Took the time to clean up the inside of my glass due to moisture spots as well and put some antifog in there. HOT DAMN. Pictures speak for themselves

Nice work! Love the retro look. I tried to figure out how to get color changing LEDís in the cluster but it was too much work.
I recommend tinting your digital gauges to knock down that bright bluish light. I used theatrical gels:




2017 T100- OHLINS TR 634/FKS 215, LSL Flat Tracker handlebars, Booster Plug, STS (Smart Turn System)auto turn signal cancelation, Modified comfort seat with Supracor, Chrome Grab Rail, Triumph Barrel Style Hand Grips, Aluminum Oil Filler Cap, Cibie 82240 Light unit, Triumph Center Stand

yeah they look great--I put a set on my SpeedTwin- easy job just take your time and wash your hands good before so not prints or oil on fingers

I really can't believe the stock tach has a 2 digit readout--dumbest think Ive seen

a speedo is supposed to read 10/20/30/40

NOT a tach

1/2/3/4/ for a tach is proper in my opinion

the change to a single digit tach is one of the best parts of the Arton, not to mention the overall CLEAN look

It is easy. The instructions did not mention taking off the headlight though and you definitely need to drop the bucket to get to the allen screws, space is restricted there especially after you cover your bucket from scratches.
But other than fingerprints, moisture, hair dust whatever in the pods and glass the job is very straightforward.

Nope, I managed to replace my gauges with the bucket still in place. It was tight but it's doable without removing anything related to the headlight. But that's without the fairing, perhaps it's necessary to remove it if you have the fairing.

As for the gauges themselves they're worth every penny. And the service from Luca (Arton Works) was nothing but excellent all the way.
