Just wondering if anyone has looked at putting the new 2016+ gauge cluster in an older machine?
Not sure if it would work or be that easy to do. Personally I like the newer set up rather than the 4 individual gauges that my 2015 Epic has. I did see that you can order the housing and dash cluster from the Oreion parts page. Any thoughts?
Green 2015 Epic 4 door. 2” body lift, LED light bar and ground lights.
From what I heard its a plug and play as far as the wiring goes. You will need to chop a hole in your dash large enough to pass the wire harness thru and then patch over your old holes. I got housing from Ebay and virtually did the same thing at a much cheaper price.
I think I gave $16-17 for the housing and made some slight mods to get it to fit the dash shape and diameter of gauges. It is much better not looking over across the dash ever few seconds to check on things and taking eyes completly off the road to do so. Make sure you look under the dash as to what your drilling thru when making your hole.
I just did this upgrade to my 2015 Oreion Epic . Like you I really like this setup. It was an easy upgrade used a 2" or 2,1/4" hole saw on an angle drill marked center drilled hole,ran wires and plugged in. Got some 1" Allen head bolts washers and nylon lock nuts to bolt it in place, again you will need an 90 degree angle drill no clearance between windshield. I bought this through Scott at beaver off-road and saved about 140$. I love the new look and the digital part of gauge cluster. Only thing on mine is the oil light stays on. And I'm not sure why the guy who rebuilt my motor put an an after market oil cooler on and not sure if he unplugged something back on motor any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Did you get this figured out yet. I didn't know he installed and oil cooler either. I know I said check the connection for good contact, but there could be something else going on depending on the cooler he used. Did he leave the stock sending unit in place?

He did leave stock oil sensor in place and light would go out if wire was moved had a loose connection. I went ahead and bypassed it with a manual oil pressure gauge that way I know for sure. it's got about 45-50 psi at idle. No more dummy light. Thanks for the help.
