Anyone know where I can find a tach/speedo/gas gauge bracket for my 1982 KZ1000J? I've checked the usual sources, but no luck. Mine cracked near one mounting bolt last week and I can see the same thing happening to the other side. Thanks.

I know it says out of stock but I was looking for one some time ago and I called the guy and he still had it. The part number for this one was a little different than the part number for my KZ1000-K1. He told me that sometimes part numbers changed because one piece had a gloss coat and one had a matt finish, something to do with parts that went on the ELR, dunno. I ended up getting one off of ebay but the one in the link is exactly what I have, just a different part number. Good luck, hope he still has it.

They list it, not sure if they have it though.

Well, can't find a replacement bracket now it's on to Step 2. What would you guys recommend? Just welding on the broken ear, perhaps fabbing a new lower mounting piece and welding it to the top part of the bracket? I noticed that the other ear has a developing crack so that one is probably not long for this earth. Tried to upload a pic, but it doesn't seem to tbe working this morning. Thanks.
