While I was cleaning my newly acquired 2013 R1, I noticed that the gauge cluster was a bit loose and contained free play. I am able to move it about a 1/4" up/down and side to side.

Can a few of you with 09-14 R1's check if your gauge cluster has similar amount of play?

I've had three other bikes before and none of them had this play.

Thanks for checking!

no they don't...take the windscreen off and you can access the 3 screws that are holding it on..tighten those

Thanks for the info! Are you sure I can access the 3 screws just by taking the wind screen off? I was under the impression by reading a few how to's on here that I have to remove the entire nose of the bike in order to access the 3 screws. I really don't feel like doing all that to a brand new bike, let a lone let the dealer touch her!

I'm sure he's correct, he's probably had his apart fairly often being he races.

all cluster have some free play, if it doesn't shake while idling you should be OK

Unless you have some giant hands or something you should be able to get your hand and a stubby screw driver in there. I haven't had a stock front on my bike in 3 years now though :lol

Taking the front off of the fairing stay is pretty easy as well though...

For an old guy you're pretty handy, thats a very smart idea!


Like others have said, 1/4" movement is too much. It does have rubber grommets on there but you really have to grab on to move it.
