OMG!! Check out this buying experience!!!

Ok, I've gotta share an AWESOME experience with you all here!! I have been looking for a set of these gauges for over a year but could just never swallow the $70+ price tag PER piece!!! I found these guys on ebay and found their prices quite incredible at roughly HALF everyone else's prices so I pulled the trigger on a pair from ebay store! Shortly after I ordered I learned they had an internet store and I had to go look! I saw on their store they made these cool as shit little gauges with a built in backlight option!! So I emailed them to get an order status and told them I wish I knew of their site before I ordered off ebay, they said just send them back when you get them and we'll give you a full credit towards whatever you want! Awesome!

So I get them in the mail and am immediately blown away by the quality of the units!! PLUS they came with a HAND WRITTEN Thank You card!!!!! Thank YOU!!!

So I send the original units back and order the backlit version of them and happen to mention to them that I thought the only place I could find to mount them was gonna be an obscured view due to the crossbar on my Renthal Streetfighter handle bars but oh well! Ross immediately emailed me back and said why dont we just make a custom mount that will mount ON the crossbar!!! Wow, great idea! So I measure and email the dimensions to him and he says I should be able to make them this weekend! I heard nothing so I emailed him back on the following Thursday and his wife Linda emailed back and said "I am so sorry we forgot to notify you but we already sent them out, you should have them today"!!! Low and behold their they were right in my mailbox!!!

Now, the backlit versions are an extra $10 so I ask them to let me know how much for the special mount and backlit gauges so I can get them paid, so far several emails back and forth and STILL no mention of cost difference??? Oh and the new ones came with another HAND WRITTEN Thank you!! Class act!

As if I wasnt already giddy with my find and the attention to detail and level of customer service already, I look at their warranty policy just for the hell of it and it IS as follows!!

"Our Warranty is pretty simple.
You lose it,
You break it,
Some Jack Ass steals it,
It falls off,
It quits working,
Someone steals your whole bike,
any reason, any time you ain't happy,
let us know and we'll "make it right."
No BS, I've been doing this for a long time now,
and I will do whatever it takes to keep you happy for three full years!

Thanks, Ross

P.S. Batteries are pretty much your deal, but if you have a concern, I want to hear about it."

I dont have ANY idea what a company could do ANY better than Ross and Linda to earn and keep your business??? YOU GUYS RULE!!!!

I would be sick if I didnt do all I could to get the word out about these guys! PLEASE give them a call and let them impress you, these gaues are AWESOME and would make great gifts for your fellow bikers as well! If you need proof below are some pictures and feel free to ask me to see mine anytime!!!

I think it's screwed up too that the 03 didn't have clock and second tripmeter! Yes I am so thrilled with this purchase, the temp is spot on accurate too! Just did a monthly rally ride today and was amazed at how much attention they got from passerbys! I'll have to go back and look at what I actually paid for them, I know I owe them at least $20 more for the $10 each backlit option but they haven't billed me or answered that question yet even though we have spoken a few times since I got them and asked????

Update!!! I just looked at my eBay page and I paid them $50 + $4.95 for shipping, that IT!!!! I don't guess he is charging me for the custom machined mounts either??

WOW on customer service!!!

Ok, saw this and thought "I gotta have one of those thermometers" (I have an '07 919, so no need for a clock). I went to their web page and saw that they make one that goes on the front centered mounting bolt on the tree; even better!

But I am doing my bike completely in powdercoat black or red, so the chrome finish is way off. I call them. Talk to the Mrs. I tell her what I'd like to do and she says "Why don't we set you up with the aluminum one, and I'll tell my husband not to polish it; in fact, we'll put it through the tumbler so it comes out with a matte finish" (perfect for powdercoating). She also verified my question of whether or not the thermometer was removable in order to do the powdercoating; she said it was.

Needless to say, I ordered one on the spot. She then says that I was the 2nd person today to call them with a 919; someone else on here must have seen this thread as well!

...and THEN she tells me that she's not going to charge me shipping and that it would be here Saturday - today's Tuesday. And it's after 5:30 MST. And they still answered the phone.

WOW. They ROCK!

My bars are Renthal Streetfighter bars and the crossbar measured 1/2 inch with calipers that is the dimension I gave Ross! Just call them and tell them what you want, they just did mine a week back so I'm sure they'll know what your talking about! I will email them and tell them to be on the lookout for your call regarding the same setup!

I was going to red powdercoat mine too until I mounted them up and I like them just the way they are! I am so glad some of you are jumping on these as well, you'll love them!!!

Ahhh, that's simple! You just tell them you need a set in the 7/8 inch bar mount, black face and backlit! They will set perfectly between your bar clamps on the stock bars, that will be great!! Be sure and tell them where you heard about them!

woody, ur right, that is simple! thank you for that!

is there a possibility of having it direct wired rather than operating off of a battery?

No hardwire available but the battery will last a long time and easy replacement! The backlighting appears to be like the Timex indiglow, kind of a blue hue to it and the face colors are white and black!

My 07 has a clock, but I rarely use it because of the lack of a fuel gage. I keep it on the trip odo. Would be nice to have another one handy.

Oh, well my mistake. thanks for the heads up, makes perfect sense then... I've only ridden a '04 and my '07 so, please accept my apologies...

I'm lovin' the reservoir cover, where'd did you pic that up? or did you have it made?

mine it on the clock constantly, I hardly ever leave it on the trip odo. I have a fuel light, I generally check the mileage before I head out. Any when the light pops on, get gas... but that's just me...

Very cool indeed.

Which meter do you need if you want to see if your battery is taking a charge, amp or volt meter? Volt, right?

Do thay do one of those?

Question Question about thermometer face colors

I just purchased a sweet bike thermometer like yours off ebay for $32. I chose black because it matches my gauges. But now a friend is trying to convince me that BLACK will give false readings in direct sun because black attracts and absorbs heat. I say he's on crack!

Anyone know of any higher than normal readings on black faced thermometers over white faced?

Please, let me know. The seller said no problem at all with returning it and getting white, but I want to see what others say before I rush to conclusions and send it back.

Thanks much!

Oh, this is the one I got...

Black will attract the sun. I don't think it matters the color, generally temperature is taken in the shade any ways. If you try to take it in the sun the needle will go right off the scale.

Thanks. That's what my friend was trying to say. He reminded me how hot a car interior gets when it's black, which I agreed on. But I didn't think it would matter in a thermometer. Yet I have never seen a black outdoor (or even indoor) home thermometer, so it's starting to make sense.

I'm not entirely sure I get the point of either mod LOL Why do you care about the outside temp? I mean it is what it is and you cannot do anything about it... Do you not go riding it the temp is above or below a certain min/max?

As for the time well I have a watch and a cell phone thank you

while i may understand your comments lord, for someone such as myself who commutes on this bike in all weather/times of day this is a brilliant setup. looking forward to getting this same set up myself as i see both being very handy. the temp for me is to keep an eye out for ice when it hovers or dips below freezing when its wet out. perfect for those continuous changes in elevations we have here in the northwest.

So just knowing that it is really cold out isn't enough to be on the lookout for ice? LOL

What is the difference between knowing it is cold enough to potentially freeze versus knowing the actual ambient temperature? You could easily be well above freezing point on your temperature gauge, but not knowing the windchill factor everything could be iced up already especially bridges etc. I fail to see how knowing the actual ambient temp truly helps you for situational awareness. I mean you would think that just knowing it was cold out would be enough to make the lightbulb go off in your head to the idea that there could be ice on the roads, but maybe things have changed since I became a fair weather only street rider...

You should get a compass, regional charts, transponder & file a flight plan before every ride bro. We wouldn't want you getting lost without those aids

I completly get what your saying Pv.
Must be a regional thing.

Personally, I want nothing to do with riding on ice. I check the current temp online for my city, and for the town I work in before heading to work in the morning. Due to elevation changes, anything in the 35 degree range on either end and I'll take the truck.

Different people want different things out of their riding experience, and bikes.
I have a GPS mounted, and electronic cruise control, 'cause I wanted them for when my "all purpose bike" is performing touring duty.

Those gauges look great and what AWESOME customer service!!!
Why do you need a temp gauge on the track? Maybe to understand the tracks surface a little better right? I think it is very important to have a temp gauge on your bike. As stated you want to know the wind chill and the air temp. We have these odd days in Colorado where there is not a single cloud in the sky so the sun is shining as brightly as can be yet you step outside and it is hovering around 30 all day long. Just looking out the window is not enough in Colorado. Plus with every 1,000ft in elevation gain you drop 5 degrees (give or take). Spring and Fall riding can be a pain in the ass, hands, feet, back, and whatever else, you just don’t know just how cold it is unless you have a temp gauge handy.
And who really looks at their watch (which for me is under my jacket sleeve under my gauntlet glove) or God forbid their cell phone (which is in my breast pocket) while riding? It is certainly nice on my '07 to take a quick glance down and see what time it is. That clock has saved my ass on missing out on an all out brawl with the wife because of not making it home on time for some important thing that she set up and claims to tell me about, but we all know she didn't Saying “OH look at that it’s 1330 and I am two hours away from home need to turn around now so I can make it home by 1600 and still be able to get gas on the way home without being late,” is much better then pulling over to buy gas then pulling out your cell phone and seeing that it is now 1430 and you are three hours away from home and you need to be there by 1600. God bless the man who has to make that phone call home.

Never Trade the Thrills of Living for the Security of Existence.

I had a girlfriend once that acted like your wife.

It was a very brief relationship...
