my 1996 Goldwing SE has a white background for the tach and speedometer, I was speaking with some of the guys at the GWRRA breakfast and they thought that the insturment panel had been changed. What is your opinion?

The white face instruments were only on the '97 and '98, or the '98 and the '99.

I don't remember which.

I detest the white instruments, can't see them in the twilight/moonlight/streetlights.

I have bought a black face tach for my '98, looking for a black face speedo so I can strip the face plate out and put it on my speedo.

Im pretty sure the white guages were in 98,99 and possibly 2000...you can change out the bulbs and put in blue led bulbs behind there, makes em lot easier to see anytime day or night..

96 & 97 were black, 98 & 99 were white, 2000 went back to black.

Mine are black, but I think I'd like the white better. But doesn't appear to be real popular.

My '99 has white gauges. They changed back over to black for 2000.

98 & 99 white gauges and hard to see at night, better with LED bulbs to light them.

hummer5205 Before you change your speedo you should check the speedo cable. Only about $20.00 bucks or so for the cable and housing the last time I bought one.
