K1100 Instrument Cluster on a K100 2v

I just recently picked up a k1100 instrument cluster, and was wondering if it would work on a 87 k100 2v? Has anyone tried this? Is there a reason I shouldn't?.

The tachometers are different. The 2 valve K tachometers (part 62112305263) get their signal from the coils while the 4 valve K tachometers(part 62112305265) get their signal from the Motronic.

Also the temp warning light is different. The 2 valve Ks use the temp relay to set it off while on the 4 valve Ks the light is triggered by the Motronic. It's just illuminating the warning light though so that might not be an issue.

Thanks for the great information!! I must say it is very disappointing though. Anyone need a k1100 instrument cluster, or want to trade one for a k100 cluster?
