    I get specular reflections into my eyesa bit frequently with the stock setup, a lower/flatter instrument angle helps reduce that.

    However, I'm now wearing polarizing sunglasses most of the time when I'm riding in sunlit conditions so this problem has been mostly eliminated.

    The glare isn't from the rings, it's from the clear plastic gauge covering.

    This extra connector to the right does that have connected to the speedo?

    By the look of it, it's an air temperature gauge. It could probably be mounted anywhere away from the motor.

    Why aren't the mounting lugs used? Has it already been relocated from somewhere else?

    Yes, once you fit the standard center mount bolt bucket, it won't. The older Dart V7 version (center bolt mount) might. I can get you those brackets I believe. Write me direct email.

    The store entry for this says "2018 coming soon", any idea how soon? My OCD hates an un-centered gauge.

    Dart do a kit with brackets for the cb1100 earlier version, which work a treat with the j.w. Speaker headlights - I am away with work and when I get back I’ll post some pics, J

    Todd, have you verified that the twin gauge bracket will fill a V7 III with a Dart Marlin?
