Speed Odometer and Gas Gauge for Base 700

Is there some aftermarket instrument that I can install that shows speed, mileage and fuel level?

For a speedometer/odometer check out Trail Tech. I have one and it works just fine.

You are out of luck for a real fuel gauge

Here's a picture of the one that I have where I made a custom mount instead of using the handle bar mount that they supply

How long does it take to install one of those if a person is kind of handy?

It didn't take too long.

You have to install a sensor one of the front tires for the speedometer. Also on the one that I have I had to cut into a coolant hose to install that sensor.

Overall I would say a couple of hours. I made the mount out of a piece of 2 inch angle iron with a notch cut into it and bent to the angle that I wanted. Actually the mount took more time than the meter minus painting it

Thanks for the info, that sounds like it is not too hard. I can't imagine how you tie into the coolant hose! I have a 91 Honda 4 TRAX that I bought new that keeps on working well, but I always wanted to add one of these, but was afraid to try. I am not sure how I would deal with the temp sensor, as it is air cooled. Engine temperature has always been a concern as I have worked it hard in hot weather.

You would have to go to Trail Techs site and put in the year and make and see if anything comes up.

Or you could even call their tech support and ask them. I could be wrong but I think that they had a sensor for a air cooled engine also but I could be wrong.
