Great idea and I would have loved this. But I think this idea is a little late as the GL1500 is 21 years out of production. Although obviously there are still a few out there still running down the road...

From what I understand, the hard part is getting the plastics off,
the rest of it is Plug 'n Play

and the price he is asking, is very affordable. "quoting "in2it"

He doesn't have a web page...
his email is [email protected]
... a nice man to deal with ...
the total cost to me here in Arkansas was under 400.00 dollars took about 9 days to get here ...

the cost goes up and down depending on the Euro at the time ....

the manual is well written with pictures ...
he accepts payment through PayPal

Hold it for a 'spare' to sell, and order this one ;)
As I'm going to have to dig deep to remove the blown LCD, I may as well fit the upgrade 😁
It's exactly what I wanted 10 years ago when the LCD started degrading but was too much work.

Well, I started peeling the front off.
Mirrors, chrome shield, lights, indicators...
Can't see where to go from here though...

Is there a set if instructions written anywhere on pulling the dash out?

I've looked at the attached instructions but that's worse - I have to remove more bodywork than ever before too! Doesn't explain how though :(

The video was helpful - it was the front vents that were preventing the fashia removal.
Fitting the display required some trimming with a Dremel.
I'm reluctant to put it all back together as I'm thinking maybe I should swap all the little lamps for LED's while I'm in this deep... anyone know what lamps I need?

Take a look at this thread for some good info. This is what I did when I had my 1500 but quite a while ago. Certain bulbs need to remain incandescent though like low fuel and cruise lights otherwise they will always glow a bit if changed to LED's
