Removing the Old Speedometer NOTE This Instruction Sheet covers several different Harley- Davidson models and years. Make sure you locate and follow the procedures that apply to the motorcycle receiving the new gauge. 1. Apply power to motorcycle and record the odometer reading. 2. Remove the seat according to the procedure in the applicable Service Manual. To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, disconnect battery cables (negative cable first) before proceeding. (00048a) Disconnect negative (-) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00049a) 2. Disconnect battery cables, negative cable first. NOTE Cover the fuel tank with clean shop towels to prevent scratching. Damage to the finish could result. 3. Remove the instrument console acorn nut (and mounting screw with a flat washer on some models). Lay clean shop towels on the fuel tank. Lift the console from the fuel tank, turn it upside down and lay it on the towels. NOTE If necessary, bend back the flexible metal clip to free the harness conduit from the underside of the console. 4. Unplug the 12-terminal connector (39B) from the back of the speedometer. Depress the external latches and use a rocking motion to separate the pin and socket halves. 5. Remove the back clamp: All models except FXSTD: Gently pry the three latches upward to release the back clamp from the back of the speedometer. FXSTD: Depress the three external legs of the lock ring, then gently pry the three latches upward to release the back clamp from the back of the speedometer. 6. Unscrew the trip-meter reset button, and pull the harness from the clamp (remove the screw if necessary). 7. Lift the console and remove the old speedometer from the console. Discard the old speedometer, but retain the rubber gasket and back clamp for use with the new gauge. NOTE Set the console securely on the towel-covered fuel tank, and take care that it doesn’t fall off during the following opera- tions. 8. Set the console securelyon the fuel tank. Installation and Final Check NOTE Apply window cleaning fluid or mild soapy water to the speedometer gasket as needed to aid installation. 1. Turn the console over, facing upward. 2. Place the speedometer gasket into position around the console speedometer bore. 3. Fit the new gauge into the bore so that it fits snugly against the rubber gasket. Rotate the gauge into approximate visual alignment. The back clamp will complete the alignment. 4. Turn the console over, face down. 5. Install the back clamp
