For you FZ1 riders, here's the best farkle I think I've ever seen..

It replaces your gas guage on the FZ1 with digital wonder. It shows you the following.

What gear your in.
Water temp
Ambient air temp
Fuel level in gallons
Current speed
Battery Voltage
Max speed

And it has a built in speedometer correcter to correct the speed displayed on the bikes stock speedo as well, with ability to adjust for any setup to make your speedometer correct.

It has 13 display modes.

Some engineer in Germany makes em as a hobby, I think this guy could have a real nice business if he made these for a few popular bikes.

Kinda pricey at ~$300 but mine is on the way now. :)

You can find em over at yamahafz1oa.com in the parts and gear section.

I saw that on the FZ1OA site, but don't think my electronics skills are up to the installation. The best instumentation I have ever had was the SV650. With the Zero Gravity windscreen I added and a slip-on pipe sometime in the future, I'm gonna call it good.

Wow, that is really cool. Extremely useful. And you're right, he could sell a pile of them if he'd make them for some other bikes. I'll bet the install is a **** though.

Man, that looks really cool. One of the most useful farkles for sure. Would definitely be something I'd look at installing on a next bike if it were made for the model.

Hopefully I'll have it soetime next week, I figured since I would have the guage cluster apart, I'd install a set of these while I was at it.
