Aftermarket Instrument Cluster?

Buying a new Ninja 250R in the next few days, and honestly, the stock instrument cluster just isn't doing anything for me. Can anyone recommend an aftermarket cluster?

Something like this, I suppose I'm open to anything

Sorry, I should've been more clear. I don't even have the bike yet, but I'm sure the instrument cluster will be fully functional! I just don't care for it.


Sorry again for the miscommunication.

Don't listen to tha haters (big comfy) buy what you want. It's your money. However most of us here wouldnt. I dig whatever is on that Ninja in the vid. On my 600rr I sent my cluster to have something similar done and I got a lot of compliments. Plus I liked how it looked(which is what really matters)

Yeah, I dig Koso as well, that's who's site I've been on. That's what is in the vid, too... Are they accurate? Is that something I even have to worry about? Accuracy of speed, revs, and miles on the odometer? I would imagine so, since I'm not changing anything but the "display" itself, and not the measuring instruments.

Insurance forbids I own anything more than a 250. So I'm buying new, because I'm a young stubborn teenager, and I'm gonna be stuck with it for quite a while.

Don't listen to the guy who lives on the water and doesn't have a fishing pole. (soul less racer)

Too many disco colors for my taste. If you want bragging rights, buy a Motec LCD dash. They cost almost half as much as the bike. Translogic makes a nice dash, IMO, and runs around $600

The Koso gauges are nice and accurate AFAIK. There's a guy here (randomwalk101) that has the the gauge on his bike. The 2011 Ninja 250 has the White background vs the plain black of prior years. Really not worth spending that much money on a clock unless you plan on keeping the bike.

Well I figure I'll be stuck with the bike for a while. Full coverage insurance is 96/mo for the 250, and over 300/mo for a 650.
