Gauge Covers

Like a lot of people on this forum, my gauge covers are RUSTY. The rear covers are inexpensive, but getting rid of the rust on the front is a pain. What I did was paint mine with a rust converting primer to prevent further rust, then bought a set of gauge covers for a KZ900/1000.







The only issue is that they are too long toward the front. I plan to make a gasket to seal this area. It looks pretty awesome in person compared to what it used to look like:

I like the look of the gauges on my KZ more than my Vulcan. I'd just go ahead and swap them out for KZ gauges entirely and avoid the clearance issues. Front looks almost identical aside of an oil pressure light, and back is flat instead of coned, but otherwise you'll never be able to tell. Looks good though.

Looks great; awesome execution.

Do the forks look a bit low in the triple tree to anyone else?
