Just been informed that my instruments are off a 750-4, I would like to go back to stock.

Thanks.

Someone here may be able to help you, but parts are becoming more scarce.

Keep an eye on ebay & watch Craigslist for a potential parts bike.

Good luck
J.

PS. Not exactly what you seek, but worthy of consideration: http://ascot500.com/index.php?topic=72.0

Thank you.
I'll keep an eye on eBay and Kijiji. Craigslist is pretty useless for this area, but I'll check it now and then.

Here's one:

And another

Neither look very good.   They seem to come up pretty regularly on eBay - I'd wait for a better set.

Are you in the Kootneys, and looking for a 'Kilometer' set?  I might have a Kilometer speedo with broken or missing needles - (will need to look) - not the end of the world but some creativity required.

Thanks Bucko.
Yes, I am in the Slocan Valley, West Kootenays, BC, Canada - (hence the 'clever' name)  ;)
I hadn't thought about it but, yes, a kilometer set would be nice.
