Speedo/gauge relocation to center

A few images floating around where people relocated the speedo to the center of the bars and it looks pretty neat. Anyone here try it? Thinking it will annoy me to have it off to the side and wondering what's required (new/custom bracket) or if the stock one can be moved. Any help from current owners would be appreciated.

Watching this thread. I have something similar in mind.

The project will probably need a bracket like this one, provided there is some slack in the connector cable:

Maybe this will help, if you haven't seen it before.

hmm, this guy seems to have gone in a direction opposite to what I was planning, but at least its proof the speedo can be shifted around.

It's simple. All you need is a forge to cast a new bottom bracket for the handlebars!

It messes with my sense of balance to see it kicked off to the right, but I will have to wait to study it in person to determine what options I have.

Feel like this can/will become a pretty standard "mod". The whole "off to the side" thing looks kinda neat but I've ridden bikes with this configuration (recently, the Yamaha FZ09) and it gets annoying. If there is in fact a bracket required, we could ask someone like Guido from Shift Tech if he can make one and set up a group buy if enough people are interested.

I rode the Icon for just about 8 - 10 hours last week and this offset speedo had already started annoying me. Count me in pls.

I agree.. I'd like a mod to put the speedo in the center.

Keep in mind the space you will need to add GPS and Camera, I have a Garmin Monterra GPS and a Garmin Virb on my bars, the the off set speedo works well for me. Just a thought
