It is very easy to set up the Harley-Davidson Speedometer / Tachometer Combo part
No. 70900071 (continued from Harley
All you do is press the display button on the side of the speedo dash whilst the
ignition is in the off position. No need to press it until it clicks. Once the
LCD display comes on, turn the ignition switch to accessory. Your speedo display
will then guide you.
You can have the LCD display show you the gear you are in (not on pre 2011
models), a larger, easier to read fuel gauge, current time, two trip meters, and of
course the odometer.
Also, even though its not that "handy" as far as features go, the original speedo has a
sixth gear light which you could barely see. The new panel has a larger,
brighter 6th gear indicator.
Setting the colours is very easy too - the hardest part is selecting the
combination that suits you. Each of the colours has a corresponding number, so if you like
a particular shade of blue for example (I like #240), make a note of the number so you can use
it for other functions.
There are five settings:
Press the dash button until the LCD screen says "ALL".
If you want a uniform colour for the face, LCD display, speedo and tacho needles, quickly
turn the ignition off then back to accessory.
You are then able to choose the colour by pressing the dash button (again, no
need to press until it clicks - less wear and tear). You can hold the button so
it zooms through the range, or press it continually to go through the colours
one by one. Once you have the colour you want, quickly turn the ignition to off
and back to accessory again. The screen will read "saved".
To change the face, speedo and tacho independently, repeat the above, except
when it says "ALL", press again to choose which part of the speedo you want to
Where to buy
From what I'm told, these speedos are rarely in stock in Australia, but can be
bought from any Harley dealer. For example, I bought mine from Fraser Harley-Davidson in Sydney.
EDIT: As luck would have it, my speedo failed in its 11th month. I took the bike
down to Frasers at Homebush, and they spent some time testing it. We were a
little confused by the fact that the LED lights came on in the workshop, and
went off in the day, but further testing by me later revealed that it was just a
coincidence. Anyway, a new speedo was ordered, which arrived in just a few days.
They are even going to reinstall it for me to save me the hassle - which is
really only a 10 minute job anyway. Thanks Denys at Frasers.
