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 and is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
Preparation
NOTE
For vehicles equipped with security siren: Verify that the hands-free Fob is present.
1.
Turn the ignition key switch to IGNITION and record the odometer reading.
WARNING
To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, remove main fuse before proceeding. (00251b)
2.
Refer to the service manual and follow instructions to remove the main fuse.
Removing the Old Speedometer
Models with Speedometer Mounted Flush to Console

  2. Follow instructions in the service manual to remove the old speedometer.
Models with Speedometer Mounted at the Handlebar
  1. Follow service manual instructions to remove the speedometer housing from the upper fork bracket, and remove the old speedometer from the housing.
Installation and Final Check
NOTE
  • To aid installation, apply window cleaning fluid or mild soapy water to the speedometer gasket as needed.
  • Rotate the gauge into approximate visual alignment before fastening in place.
1.
Follow instructions in the service manual to install the new speedometer.
NOTE
Verify that the ignition key switch is in the OFF position before installing the main fuse.
2.
Refer to the service manual and follow the instructions to install the main fuse.
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)
3.
Turn the ignition key switch to IGN, but do not start the motorcycle. Test for proper turn signal, brake light and tail light operation.
4.
Check the speedometer and tachometer for proper operation.
NOTE
  • Both the ECM and speedometer retain the odometer value. If the speedometer is replaced, it displays the odometer value stored in the ECM. The replacement speedometer will become locked to the ECM after 50 km (31.1 mi) 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.
  • During the 50 km (31.1 mi) 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 may 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, be sure the ABS warning lamp is working properly. See the owner's manual for ABS warning lamp operation.
Backlight Color Modification
NOTE
This speedometer has a black back lighted LCD with color selectable back lighting. In daytime lighting conditions with direct or indirect sunlight, the contrast of the LCD display varies depending on the backlight color selected. The display contrast affects the visibility of the display.
In direct sunlight, color #600 maximizes display contrast and visibility.
The backlight color can be modified for the entire gauge or the dial, speedometer pointer, tachometer pointer, and display separately (see Table 1 and Figure 2 ). The gear indication and fuel level display can also be disabled.

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 properly initialize fuel range (miles to empty) functionality.
During consumption of the first full tank of fuel, the gauge software will begin 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 match at all times 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 one fourth 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 to the vehicle it is recommended you add at least 7.6 L (2 USgal) 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 48.3 km (30 mi).
Press and hold the "Trip" reset switch to toggle between the "mile" and "kilo" displays.
