To prevent scratches use care when cleaning instrument faces. Some models of motorcycles may have acrylic faces.
Travel at speeds appropriate for road and conditions and never travel faster than posted speed limit. Excessive speed can cause loss of vehicle control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00008a)
The speedometer registers forward vehicle speed in miles per hour (U.S.) or kilometers per hour (international).
FLHP: See Figure 1.
FLHTP: See Figure 2.
Instrument backlighting activates after a slight delay. The backlighting changes when the ambient light changes (such as going through a tunnel).
See OPERATING RECOMMENDATIONS section. Do not operate the engine above maximum safe RPM as shown under OPERATION (red zone on tachometer). Lower the RPM by upshifting to a higher gear or reducing the amount of throttle. Failure to lower RPM may cause equipment damage. (00159a)
The tachometer measures the engine speed in revolutions per minute (rpm x 100).
FLHP: See Figure 1.
FLHTP: See Figure 2.
Fuel Gauge
The fuel gauge indicates the approximate amount of fuel in the fuel tank.
FLHP: See Figure 1. The fuel gauge is on the left side of the fuel tank.
FLHTP: See Figure 2. The fuel gauge is on the instrument panel.
Voltmeter: FLHTP
See Figure 2. The voltmeter indicates the measured electrical system voltage. With the engine running above 1500 rpm and the battery fully charged, the voltmeter indicates 13.0-14.5 volts.
