Finally installed the instruments earlier this week ... they work great!

Feels decadent having a fully-functional tach and speedo, including lights and everything!

Keep up the progress report.
I really like the 'scrambler' look.

Hi Wes.  Parts fiche shows a 2x6  screw:

Thanks Bucko. I'll try again (with my glasses on).

OK, had to break out the old computer repair screwdriver set + clean up the screw head - all good.
Thanks again.

I put a new tire on the rear in the fall.  I wanted to go to something a bit wider but there wasn't enough side clearance.  I ended up getting a Bridgestone 120/90 - not sure there's room to go much wider but keep in mind there may be size variation between one MFR's 120 and aonther's 120.

Anybody know how to remove the 'knob' from the speedo? I've looked for a screw, tried pulling on it - no luck.

Tech Section / Re: Can you swap a vt500 Shadow motor to the ascot?
« Last post by J6G1Z on December 11, 2018, 06:29:03 pm »
Which Ascot are you asking about? FT or VT?

A VT500 Shadow engine should swap into a VT500FT Ascot of the same years.

The VT500 Shadow engine will NOT swap into the FT500 Ascot.
