Biltwell "Problem Solvers"

New in what Californian parts-to-G&A specialist Biltwell describes as its "Problem Solver" series, this new billet dash panel provides a home for the digital module on 2018 and up M-8 Softail models such as the Street Bob and Super Glide. 

CNC machined from T-6 aluminum, the included reducer shims allow use on 1" or 1.25" upright handlebars or risers. Hand polished before being black electroplated or show chromed, it ships with 5/16-18 stainless steel socket cap hardware for mounting the gauges - "the 1 or 1.25" clamp size makes them a universal mounting point and problem solver for any number of custom cockpit challenges on M8 Softails" - especially when changing to taller handlebars. The stock wiring, digital display and indicator lights can be reused.

Also seen here, Biltwell's hinged design straight or angled speed clamps also use removable shims to fit around the uprights on 1 and 1.25" outer diameter uprights. "Our speed clamp's super-clean hinged design fits around the uprights on our standard or oversize 'Tyson' riserless handlebar and 'Murdock' risers to provide a rock-solid mount for most stock H-D and select aftermarket speedometer brackets. 

"The threaded hole on the leading edge of each clamp accepts a 5/16-18 t.p.i. allen cap bolt (included), which passes through the holes on the speedo bracket to create a strong, clean mounting point across the front of the handlebar."
