Service Manual Required
WARNING
Rider and passenger safety depend upon the correct installation of this kit. Use the appropriate service manual procedures. If the procedure is not within your capabilities or you do not have the correct tools, have a Harley-Davidson dealer perform the installation. Improper installation of this kit could result in death or serious injury. (00333b)
NOTE
This instruction sheet refers to service manual information. A service manual for this year/model motorcycle is required for this installation. One is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
Kit Contents
This kit contains a combination speedometer/tachometer and an adapter harness. There are no service parts available with this kit.
COPY ODOMETER DATA
NOTE
The gauge displays NO CAL (no calibration). It will not function if it is installed before the odometer copying process is performed.
  1. Verify that the engine OFF/RUN switch is in the RUN position.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the ACCY position and note the odometer reading.
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  4. See the service manual and Figure 2. Locate data link connector [91].
  5. Remove the rubber plug from the data link connector [91]. Install the 4-way connector of the adapter harness from the kit.
  6. Install the 12-way connector of the adapter harness to the new gauge. Hold the gauge during the copying process.
  7. NOTE
    If odometer copy process is done repeatedly in a short time span, it displays the percentage countdown, CHECK and OK. Refer to Troubleshooting Guide ( Table 4 ).
    The display could be difficult to read in low light conditions.
  8. Turn ignition switch ON. See Figure 3. The gauge rapidly displays the percentage of copying complete. Then the gauge displays CHECK and finally OK. When OK displays, the copying process is successful.
  9. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  10. Disconnect the adapter harness from the data link connector [91] and the gauge. Install rubber plug.

INSTALLATION
WARNING
To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, remove main fuse before proceeding. (00251b)
1.
See the service manual. Remove seat and main fuse.
NOTE
Cover painted parts to protect finish.
2.
See the service manual. Remove the instrument console from the fuel tank. Place an H-D Service Cover or clean shop towels on the fuel tank. Turn the instrument console upside down and lay it on the covering.
3.
See the service manual. Remove the original equipment (OE) speedometer. Install the new speedometer.
4.
See the service manual. Install the instrument console to the fuel tank.
NOTE
When the main fuse is installed and battery power is applied to the electrical system, the security light flashes for up to 15 seconds, while the new gauge synchronizes to the ECM.
WARNING
After installing seat, pull upward on seat to be sure it is locked in position. While riding, a loose seat can shift causing loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00070b)
5.
See the service manual. Install the main fuse seat.
WARNING
Be sure headlamp, tail and stop lamp and turn signals are operating properly before riding. Poor visibility of rider to other motorists can result in death or serious injury. (00478b)
6.
Turn the ignition switch to IGN, but do not start the motorcycle. Check operation of all lamps.
7.
Check the speedometer and tachometer for proper operation and verify that the odometer reading is correct.
NOTE
  • The replacement speedometer will become locked to the ECM after 31.1 miles (50 km) have been accumulated. The trip B odometer displays the countdown mileage. Once the countdown reaches zero, the speedometer is locked to the ECM. If installed on another vehicle the odometer displays "VIN ERR". If the speedometer is removed from the vehicle before the countdown reaches zero, it has not been locked to the ECM. This mileage countdown allows for a road test to verify that speedometer replacement was the proper repair.
  • The 31.1 miles (50 km) countdown period (before the speedometer is locked to the ECM), the security light flashes for up to 15 seconds when battery power is restored to the electrical system, while the new gauge synchronizes to the ECM.
  • Gear Indication display is a calculated gear position based on wheel and engine speed. The gear position displayed could be momentarily inaccurate depending on rider clutch use characteristics and clutch wear. This momentary false reading, although unlikely, can occur if the clutch is allowed to slip either due to excessive wear, poorly adjusted clutch or if the operator rides the clutch.
  • If gauge is installed on a motorcycle with ABS, verify that the ABS warning lamp is working properly. See the owner's manual for ABS warning lamp operation.
  • The odometer will display VIN ERR and the ABS warning lamp will illuminate if the gauge is installed on a non-ABS vehicle after the gauge is locked (accumulated 31.1 miles (50 km)) into an ABS vehicle.
  • 2007 and earlier vehicles do NOT support the gear indicator display function.
Battery Reconnection and Initialization
After the battery is reconnected or a new gauge is installed, the gauge requires about a half tank of fuel to initialize fuel range (miles to empty) functionality.
During consumption of the first full tank of fuel, the gauge software begins the process of learning your riding patterns, eventually tailoring the fuel range calculations to your unique riding characteristics.
The fuel level display and tank-mounted fuel gauge may not always match when starting with a full tank of fuel. The tank fuel gauge utilizes a continuous sweep needle to indicate fuel level, while the speedo/tach fuel level utilizes a segmented display. Each segment represents 1/8 of a tank. For example; if a given segment just came on or is about to go off, it would show no change, while the needle on the tank-mounted gauge would likely show a change in position.
Fuel Fill-up and Top-off
When adding fuel, it is recommended you add at least 2 gallons of fuel to update the fuel and range displays. If the fuel display does not update immediately after the vehicle is put in motion the fuel and range displays will slowly update over the next 30 miles.
Press and hold the "Trip" reset switch to toggle between the "mile" and "kilo" displays.
Display Modification
The backlight color can be modified for the entire gauge or the dial, speedometer pointer, tachometer pointer, and display separately. The gear indication and fuel level display can also be disabled.
