I have a K1 CL350. The tach wasn't working, so I purchased a used one on E-Bay. And, surprise, it doesn't line up!

So here's the question: the tach and speedo on my 1970 K1 have plastic housings. Is that right? Because the one I ordered has a metal housing.

My bike looks like it was crashed--I don't know if the PO put newer gauges on, or if the one I ordered is not right for my bike.

Some "K's" had plastic housings, some metal.... The meter will read correctly, but the mounting brackets are different.. The metal ones are "newer"....I believe the K1 should have the plastics......

My 68 CL350 is plastic while my '70 CB450 is metal. Even within a few model years, on the 450's anyway, the layouts are quite different as they changed the internal lighting positions.
