I have secured a replacement instrument cluster for an 84I and was wondering if anyone knew what type plastic the clear lens is that covers it. It has a few cracks around the outside and I would like to use something to help weld or reinforce it so that they don't get any worse since these things are not easily replaceable. Ideas?

I don't know. But I've seen some owners drill a tiny hole at the end of each crack to stop it traveling further.

I had to buy a used speedometer to get a replacement for my 83. I don't know the type of plastic they used.

You might check with Greens motorcycle salvage in Ky. I was up there not long ago, maybe 3 weeks and he had some 1200's and i thought I some instrument clusters intact. 270-879-8979. The guy you should ask for is Orville

If the cracks are where they won't be seen, you can use some water thin Acrylic adhesive on it. It melts the joins together but will instantly give a crystal look anywhere it touches.

You also use ABS patches with VHB adhesive backing on them to bridge the gaps but they aren't clear.

depending on how courageous you're feeling, you could pick up some thin lexan and gently heat it into shape just replacing the lense all together. I've never tryed it, but the idea seems sound.
