anyone thought of a guage cluster swap?

searched and couldnt even begin to find anything out

this is of course on a 919

i would freakin LOVE to swap out the cluster for a factory honda digital cluster from a cbr, but am unsure if all the signal voltages are the same..... if they are it would be as simple as mounting it and wiring it up

anyone have any info on the voltage ranges for any of the cbr sensors? anyone have a cbr and a multi-meter to check it out? it would only take a few minutes

thanks for any help

if anyone cares, heres what ive gathered so far some of it may or may not be useful


----------------919----------------------cbr929rr
ECT (80C)------2.1-2.6kohm---------------2.1-2.6kohm
ECT (120C)----.62-.76kohm---------------.65-.73kkohm
RPM------------10.5V min.-----------------10.5V min.
SPEED-----------0-5V-----------------------0-5V

ECT is the same for both on low temp and at high temp they are still within range of each other so maybe they will be close enough to work

RPM not too sure about, it just says 10.5V min, but doesnt give any kind of range? not sure if they are the same or not..... im not sure if they both read off of one cyl. or all 4..... anyone know this?

SPEED is the one that is really questionable, they are both 0-5V but with one being digital and the other being a sweep type gauge im not sure they are interchangeable (unless the sweeper is a digital signal and not analog)


and of course the oil, cel, and fuel level are just dummy lights so they will just be wired directly into the new cluster

yes..... the specs i posted above are straight from 929 and 919 service manuals, what im mainly concerned about is the speedo's..... if one is a digital signal and one is analog, then the signals wont work together

I glanced at the title and thought for a second it was "anyone thought of a garage clutter swap?"

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

the speedometer portion is compatible, the 919 has digital output.
