I am looking for a black dash panel for my 97 Aspencade. I don't need the speaker grilles, just the plastic dash panel. Mine has a few cracks so I want to replace it. If any one has one that they would like to sell, you can send me a PM or email me. My email is in my profile.... Thanks.

I searched high and low on ebay and nada. They had one last night for a 95 that appeared kind of rough but seemed to be intact only it was the wrong color. Looks like it's gone now anyways. I am still hopeful that someone here might have one they are willing to part with. Just shoot me a quote for price plus shipping and I'm sure we can work a deal. I priced them out new at Service Honda (They were the cheapest) and it will be $103 plus shipping. I'm hoping to not have to spend that much if I can help it. Before I do that though, if no one here has one, I might try sending a request to Wisconsin Cycle Salvageor Pinwall Cycleunless someone has a better solution....

A couple weeks ago I contacted Bike Bandit and Cheap Cycle Parts, both told me although it's still listed they are discontinued and unavilable, confirmed the same with a call to the local Dealer.

Thanks Pate but my gauges are good. I amlooking forthe full dash panel like this picture:



I don't need the speaker grilles or the vents, just the rest of it. Mine succumbed to fatigue from using larger speakers. Now I have to decide also if I wan't to go with the Polk DB501's in which case, I will have to fashion a large ABS patch inside and make new speaker holes or fashion some kind of custom face to continue to use the Infinity 5.25" speakers I currently have......

Would you post some pics of the damage? Was it just on the panel or the fairing also? Also, are the infinitys larger than the polks?
Thanks

On the fairing, I opened up the speaker holes with a rotozip so I could get theInfinty's in. They still extended slightly over and under the fairing base. I tried to center them as much as possible. I have had them in for quite a while. I think I have had them in for over 2 years. When I installed the meter cover over them, it made the cover bulge downwards slightly just under the grilles. It was a tight fit and I just ignored it.



What happened was that on the left side, I developed a large crack from the base of the grille all the way down to the vent.



One thing I noticed was that the meter panel is pretty thick and I think that I could easily grind away enough material where the speakers bind to make the panel fit much better. I may try that with this old one to see how it goes. I like having the larger speakers. If that doesn't do the job, I have 2 other options in mind.

One is to pick up some larger ABS panels, and glue/attach them over the enlarged area and go back to the original 4.5" hole which I don't think would be a problem. I have a 4.5" hole saw and experimented in drilling the holes in 1/8" plexiglass. As long as I took my time, I was able to make the holes without causing the smaler plexiglass panel to crack. (I guess I could just use the plexiglass cut to size but Imnot sure how it would hold up) The mounting point on the fairing is still solid and patch pieces, I'm sure, would work rather nicely. This would alow me to switch over to the Polk BB501 speakers.

The second option is to fab some kind of face plate to mount just in front of the grilles, remove the grilles, and keep the 5.25" Infinity's. I have been researching other plastic panels like plastic/acrylic. I came across this youtube video that shows how to do your own bending: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovqnIBQuezAand I can build my own bender. The element is available here. There is, I believe enough room in front of the grille to build a plastic enclosure big enough to easily house a 5.25" speaker mount without blocking the vent. And I would also increase the mounting depth. I'm not sure if I am abmbitious enough right now to undertake that right now though.

Decisions, decisions.... But the first step is tofind a fresh meter panel cover and go from there.

And yes, the Infinity's are larger than the Polks. I will try to fing the specs on the Infinity's but the polks are 5" but are reported to only need a 4.5" openin to mount them.

I was thinking that with the 5.25" you would have to use the covers and speakers over the dash panel. Interesting you got them behind it.
The idea of an enclosure out from the panel might be a chance for better sound box too.
