    1972 CL350 gauge mounting bracket install

    Can anyone please tell me how/where the speedometer and tach mounting bracket attaches to my '72 cl350?? I have purchased 2 now off ebay and neither seem to fit. I am assuming to larger holes attach on top of the fork bridge under to fork top bolts??

    A pic of the bracket would help....There were several variants over the years that mounted differently...

    Yes, that mounts on top of the bridge and is held on by the fork top bolts.....
    It won't work with the "pinch-clamp" type top bridge forks.....Only with the fork tubes with the shoulder inset into the bridge from the underside and the top bolt.....
    There is a 175 and a 450 version that look similar, but are either too narrow/small, or too large/wide to fit...Make sure you get the 350 sized one....

    well, my top bridge has pinch bolts and the top fork bolts are too large of a diameter to fit the brackets I have purchased. I have not seen any other type of bracket or fork bridge other than mine. I know my bike is totally stock and 1972 model. Any ideas what bracket I would need?

    Does your bridge have two mounting "ring" tabs on the front?
    A pic would be very helpful here, (so we can see what you are working with).....

    My pic is a 500 tree, but yours should be very similar....

    The top clamp of my fork has an off set pinch bolt for each fork leg. The bridge also has a lowered single mounting hole adjacent off the front to mount the gauges it seems, but the bracket is missing and the gauges are current just mounted on these holes off the front of the bridge. The bike came to me this way and I am trying to put it back to factory

    Yes it looks similar to your image. It has an offset chrome pinch bolt like to one yo posted.

    the 72CL350K4 didn't use a gauge mounting bracket...the gauges bolted directly to the triple tree

    Re: 1972 CL350 gauge mounting bracket install

    If the '72 cl350 did not come with a gauge mounting bracket then I am confused as to why the Honda factory parts schematics show a mounting bracket with part number. It is the same bracket as I purchased off ebay twice (that don't fit).
    Very confused as to the proper assembly.....
