should i sell my tech gauges?

the fucken thing is worth 700 bucks, plus the bracket 150.00


thats some good dough.

issue is, i took them off the bike.

usually trackbikes/ race bikes dont run with the shit right?

whats the normal, leave them off the bike untill you decide to sell your track bike?

i am worried about crashing again and distroying it.


or fuck it, no one cares when they buy a track bike if it has gauges or not.

my thing if i was buying that bike is how many miles are actually on it.

i dunno what to do.

I would keep them in the garage, Thats something that I would think would be good to have in case you ever sell it.

+1

Tech gauges? Speedo, tach, entire gauge cluster? Never seen them go for THAT much (OEM fairing stay can fetch $100 though).

I thought some racers occasionsally use the tachometer. I used it all the time. You can use sound, but it's not as precise and you run the risk of hitting the rev limiter which will slow you down. The warning lights are kind of handy too... low oil pressure... engine temperature.

All racers use their tach. I don't know a single racer who doesn't have a tach on his/her bike. They're there for a reason.

Exactly but your not gonna sell them for that especially with those miles on it. People usually are willing to pay good money for them when they only have about a 1000 or 2000 miles on them so they can get more for thier bikes when they sell them (did I just say that out loud ). Nobody is gonna want some gauges with 30000 on them

All racers may have a tach on their bike but most ever really pay attention to them.I have asked many a racer the question " what rpm was the bike at "
only to get the same response, they have no clue. The tach does help to set the initial final gear ratio but past that a shift light would be adequate. Jim

I think I'm the same. I just know that my bike doesn't pull below 9k and I have to shift before 13k on long straights. Other than that, I probably never look at my tach while on the track.
