    Guage Cluster Replacement?

    Does anyone out there know the best way for me to replace my guages with my in car pc lcd touch screen? I want to have the ability to use my screen as my guage cluster, pc interface, gps navigation, etc... I think you all can see where I am going with this. A true realtime all in one system... thats what I am trying to get goin here.... Oh yeah... Did I mention that this isnt actually going in a car, truck, or boat... Then what?? I am building a very custom Suzuki GSXR, so as you can see... I need 1 screen that can do it all... So anyone PLEASE HELP! thanks.

    I am sure that is all possible, but it will take LOTS OF TIME AND LOTS OF MONEY.

    First, bikes don't have OBD, form what I can tell. You therefore will have to do a considerable amount of reverse engineering and work on interfacig with the ECU for the gauge aspect of your system. Then, you will have to integrate the systems into the carputer for display on the screen, and that will take a considerable amount of programming skill.

    That is in addition to installing a carputer into the bike, which while not impossible, is certainly more difficult then installing it into a car.

    Cool as hell, but not easy, or practical, and certainly not something that will happen quickly.
