    Simple boost gauge install

    So I was looking for a simple way to measure my boost while waiting for the newer vent gauges to be released. It's really cheap to install, and works well for your basic setup.

    Parts:
    $25 El cheapo equus gauge/kit
    $5 glow shift single gauge pod

    It isn't the best mounting place in terms of viewing the road and closely watching the gauge, but I didn't like any of the dash mounting options. I'm 6'2" with long legs and it's not in my way at all. I like it so much I'm actually going to buy a decent gauge for it soon.

    I wish someone would sell the vent/dash mount gauge holders without their overpriced $250 dollar kit.

    No pod necessary. Especially since you don't have paddle shifters getting in the way this looks like a good idea for you. mounted with velcro on the bottom and back of the gauge. This is how my boost gauge was setup in the 135i before I traded it in.

    Simplicity is key.
    BTW, what new vent gauge are you waiting for?

    OP, I noticed in your sig that you have the new s1000. Can you give me some feedback? I have been keeping my eyes on them for a little while now.

    My understanding that the current vent gauges won't work with the JB4, if this not true?

    The S1000 is flat out amazing. I've been riding for for about 6 years and this bike is the fastest yet most docile Bike I've ever ridden. Having different power modes, traction control, lean sensors, and ABS makes for a killer street bike. Did I mention it's the fastest 1000cc ever built Click here to enlarge
