Took it apart. Pretty straight forward. Looks to be a success only had 2 push pins left over. I'll post a photo of the finished product after lunch....

Looking good. Man, I want one of those gear indicators, but Kawi just asks so much for them! I love Kawasaki products, but hate the price of their OEM parts.

Really happy with the gear indicator. A slight lag but very slight. About the same as my FJR was and the GlPro indicator i had on the 09 V......

That looks real good, but I was thinking the 1000 had an outlet from the factory for some reason. I may look into the GIpro, you seem to have liked it?

Yep i did like it a lot. But the dealer had given me a $100.00 worth of gift cards so i just bought the OEM. Some one did a video installing an OEM 12V outlet like the one i purchased and some one posted on the video that the Versys and Vulcan used the same part or were comparable and the Vulcan outlet was about 50 bucks cheaper. Sucks i found out 2 days after i ordered mine.

The install on a V-650 is less hassle. You don't have to take the front of the bike apart to install. But the 650 does require an accessory relay to be installed that the 1000 doesn't....

Installing that relay on Gen 3 650s is pretty easy, and yields many benefits....

Thanks for saving me $50..Worked great

I pulled the instrument cluster out, less than 30-minutes to install the 12v outlet and gear indicator.

Thank again for the great write ups and links

Good Deal,

Didn't think about just taking out the instrument cluster...Oh well it was good practice for taking the fairings off for other projects

The outlet comes with more parts for less money, go figure?

Took longer to figure out how to remove the windshield knobs than to do the outlet (old age I guess)..

I got both. The Gear Indicator (very expensive!) works well, although it has a short lag, nothing really bad.
