    Hi Gents, Do the washers that go onto the fork top tube bolts, go under the instrument pods or above them??...or are they above & below??

    The washers go above the pod, and underneath the heads of the bolts.

    Cheers,

    They go above the pods only there should be none under the pod

    Hi olympus,

    On the MK 3 you cannot get them to face directly forward. I filed the mounting holes into slots so i can rotate the clocks to face forward. ( can't do with clock that are out of rotation).

    I'm thinking to swap speedo to right side as I find the cable is just a tad snug at bars straight ahead position and creates a bit of bend in cable path. The tacho cable also seems too long mounted on the right and has to form a large S bend to cope.

    The cable runs. Aren't an issue as I'm fitting electronic units, I was asking the positioning purely for estetic reasons
