Poll- racers, help me with some data

I'm starting to produce a few carbon parts and the first one on deck is the upper fairing bracket for the 600rr. The data I need pertains to how many of you use a stock tach / speedo vs. how many use an aftermarket tach. The design of the stocker complicates the mold tremendously so I don't want to waste time if there aren't very many with the stock one. Thanks for your help.

I use stock.

I'd love to have a trick dash, but it doesn't make the bike any faster, and I've got to draw the financial line somewhere.

yep stocker
I haven't seen too many people not using stock dash, most I've seen that have a veypor or somethings similar use it in addition to the stock one

Stock. And I don't know of any other local RR racer that uses an aftermarket. (Used stock gauges are available for around $150, do the job, and plug right in to the existing harness; whereas most aftermarket tachs start at around $300, and would need to be hardwired to a coil signal.)

I have a MyChron 3 Gold data acquisition system (which includes speedometer, tachometer, lap timer, 4 temp/pressure inputs, and available gyro for generating track maps), but it's on my SV650. It's trick, but overkill. (Retails for around $700 new.)

Yeah I did a little research and seems the stock unit is a little cheaper and a whole lot easier. Plus I like having the gas gauge

I've found that most of us racers are on a pretty lean diet when it comes to our race budgets..................I can't see any racer I know spending money on CF stuff.

I destroyed mine completely (vortex). My thinking was offering a replacement bracket (for racers that run stickers) at 50-60% off retail. Just return the original piece with the serial and get a new one for something close to cost. I've also toyed with the idea of intentionally weakining the ear pieces and making THOSE replaceable. In the long run I think they will end up being better for street guys who want to look trick, but I think I can make it work for the racer on a budget too.

Keep us posted. I just bought a pair of OEM brackets and hope not to need the spare one, but you never know.
