Hi all, the GL1200 standard is my favourite 1200 wing. I have a stripped/Custom interstate trike. I would like to know if the clocks off a standard 1200 would fit on the interstate [are the drives/pickups the same]. We never had the standard imported here in the UK so models are non existant, [maybe a handfull of grey imports]. If the clocks are compatable I would be interested in maybe buying some from the states to the Uk for my trike [costs allowing] Any info appreciated.
Regards, Daveski, UK

if yours has digital clocks it's an aspencade, only interstates and standard ( non dressed ) 1200 wings had mechanical clocks and yes they are interchangeable

Thanks William, I have an interstate with mechanical clocks [in a oblong pod], so I can interchange with the clocks from a 1200 standard. Only problem is it was never imported to the UK so probably only a handfull of grey imports over here. What is the availability of 1200 standard clocks in the US?

it would be easy to find the clocks for an interstate over here. the ones for a gl1200 standard are hard to come by because not many were sold

Yes I think they only made the 1200 standard for one year and dropped it cos they were not very popular [they are my favourite 1200 as it happens] so i guess there are not too many being broken in the breakers yard [wreckers]. I have been looking on ebay but not one 1200 standard [or parts] have turned up.

you'll be changing a lot more than just the instruments. remember fuel and temp guages are in there too

I had forgotten about them, where do the guages for fuel and temp live on a 1200 standard. I cant find any close up pics of the clocks on a standard anywhere on the web.

between the speedo and tachin a seperate cluster. the mechanical speedo ( interstate and standard wing ) is gear driven off the front wheel where as the digital speedo on an aspencade has a sensor on the front wheel. not sure about how the tachometer, fuel, and temp guages are wired in
