The plates look great. Is there room or have you thought about making a storage bin in place of current gauge panel? Something like the one lower in the console.

That is kind of a catch 22. If I leave the gauge mount bracket in place to hold the bin then it would be fairly easy but it would only be about 2 inches deep and kind of useless. I could remove the bracket but then the mounting would become problematic.

Right now I barely have time to work on things I already have CAD drawings for. Anything new wouldn't be for a while.

How’s your progress on this @PaulF.....😎
Slow. They take 2 1/2 days each to print. Been printing almost non-stop for a month.

Fortunately for me, work has been 12+ hour days, 6 days a week so unfortunately I have not had time to do anything with the face plates. Sorry but work takes precedence for me, then play, then fabrication and I have only gone riding 1 day since starting this project (over a month now).

I think I now have a stock machine to engineer the face plates on so maybe this weekend (it is a state holiday here so I have a little extra time).

11 units printed so far. As soon as I can work out the face plates, I can start shipping...

That’s wonderful problems you’ve got. Again, not rushing a thing, just keeping hope alive....🤣

Looking real good. 👍Thank you for the details.

I missed this discussion until today. I installed the All Things UTV relocate kit some months ago, Prefer the new location a lot,
However...... I still find the display hard to read, especially in bright daylight, which is most of the time for me.

Bottom line .... I think Honda needs a re-design of the display itself ( along with the location) I love my Talon, but feel it has the worst display of the industry. I can only hope that in future model years Honda (or someone else) makes an improved display that can retrofit into our 2019 - 2020 Talons.

I agree, even properly located, the Honda's display is way behind the tech available today. I was shopping the YXZ along with the Talon, its optional display, although expensive, is a combination of an OBD driven engine systems display and GPS - I'd love to see something like that happen for the Talon.

I thought about it at first but wanted to test the durability.

Now that I have about 6 months and 1500 miles on it without any problems, I may consider selling them. The others available on the market are bulky and don't move with the tilt wheel like mine (that is the main reason I made my own). The wiring harness requires taking apart and a couple ground wires extended and I still need to create a better switch plate and one for a unit without the Rugged Radio but I I'm thinking...

$75 for the relocation pod.
$25 (plus $50 refundable core charge) for an exchange wire harness (if you don't feel comfortable doing your own).
$25 for the 6 place switch plate to cover the old hole.
$50 for a custom switch plate.

Like this post only if interested at those prices and I will use that as a count and see what I can do depending on interest. If not interested, don't hit the like button so that the count is accurate.
I will take a relocation kit please. Do you send the instructions on what wires to lengthen?

Looking good Paul. I don't think I sent you a PM, but would also prefer a blank center console plate to customize myself. Will likely do a combo of stereo controller and switches. Thanks for putting time into this project.

I will provide PDF instructions with details and pics but the Instructions are not compiled yet.

Once the units are ready, I will PM you (in the order that everyone "liked" the post on page 1) and go over what you want. Any orders or instructions in this thread will get buried, lost and forgot.
