Dakota Digital MCL-2011(-R) Service manual
MCL-36K-SPD
Thank you for purchasing the Dakota Digital MCL-36K-SPD gauge for your Harley Davidson Touring bike. This kit is
designed to be a direct, plug in replacement for all touring models from 2004 – 2011. This is part of a six gauge
package for touring models so you can add additional gauges as you choose.
IMPORTANT NOTE!
This gauge has an odometer preset option that is only available for the first
100 miles (160km) of operation. See “preset odometer” for instructions.
INSTALLATION
First read and familiarize yourself with all of the components and this manual. The first step is to remove the
seat and disconnect the negative side of the battery, as with any electronic install. Once the battery is disconnected you
are ready to start.
Remove the outer fairing; this will vary from model to model, so please follow the service manual to expose the
wiring and gauges. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of wires behind the fairing, this is a direct plug in gauge and these
detailed instructions will guide you through it.

REMOVAL OF FACTORY GAUGE
ULTRA FLHT & FLHX (STREET GLIDE batwing fairings)
Unplug the speedometer. Remove the screws securing the clamp that holds the gauge in place and pull it out through
the front of the fairing. Save the screws, gasket, and clamp to be reused when you install the new Dakota Digital gauge.

FLTR (ROAD GLIDE)
You will need to remove the speedometer and tachometer instrument bezel. To do this, remove two small screws on
the left and right side of the bezel. Lift up on the back of the bezel and slide the tab that is under the ignition switch out
from under the switch cover (see Photo A below). Unplug the gauge connections and unplug the indicator lights so the
bezel can be completely removed for easier installation of the new gauge. Remove the clamp that holds the
speedometer to the bezel and remove the gauge and gasket.

Gauges/Grommets removed
IMPORTANT NOTE!
SAVE ALL CLAMPS, GASKETS, and SCREWS FROM THE STEPS ABOVE AS THEY WILL BE USED TO SECURE THE NEW
DAKOTA DIGITAL GAUGE
Next you are ready to install the new gauge into the fairing. Install the gauge and secure using the original hardware
that was removed: clamp, gasket, and screws. Be sure the alignment tab on the clamp lines up with the notches in the
fairing. Some fairings may only have one notch, line up at least one tab on the clamp with the notch in the fairing, this
will ensure the gauge is centered and aligned correctly.
WIRING (plug in connections)
Plug the original speed connector directly into the new gauge. The BLUE wire on the small, two-wire plug controls the
dimming circuit. When this wire receives +12 volts, the gauge will dim to 50% intensity. This wire can be connected to a
toggle switch, or to a Dakota Digital MCL-36K-TCH (the tachometer has a sensor that activates the dimming feature
when ambient light is low). The GREEN wire can provide a switch signal to allow other Dakota Digital MCL-3K gauges
to be set up from the factory switch on the dash. The GREEN wire will not be used if the speedometer is the only
gauge being replaced.

FUNCTION SWITCH
The factory speedometer push button switch is used as the main function switch. The function switch allows
access to all of the mileage and performance information. Pressing and releasing the function switch toggles through
the different displays. Pressing and holding the switch for about 2 seconds will reset the current display. The display
sequence for the speedometer is as follows:
SPEED MENU
000000
odometer mileage
A
000.0
trip meter mileage A
trip meter mileage B
B 000.0
S 0000
miles since last service (if programmed)
++++++
speedometer will show km/h (or MPH if metric)
R 250.0 or range
distance to empty (if turned on)
PERFORMANCE MENU(on speedometer when enabled)
HI 00

25 00.0
quarter mile time
25 00
quarter mile speed
T 000F
cylinder head temp from ECM (run switch must be on)
The 0-60 and ¼ mile timers are zeroed by pressing and holding the switch while that timer is displayed. The timer will not
restart until the speed reaches zero and you start driving again.
GAUGE SETUP AND CALIBRATION
The function switch, discussed above, is used to enter setup mode for all of the gauges. If you are only
installing one or a couple Dakota Digital MCL-3K gauges, then setup may seem a little strange since they are designed
to work as a set. The first step in the setup procedure is to select which gauge you are going to adjust. Each gauge
will either show a number or a label. If the gauge is showing a label then that gauge will be selected to enter setup. All
of the other gauges will exit setup and allow the selected gauge to be changed. To get into setup, press and hold the
function switch while turning the key on. Press and release the switch to advance through the menus below, when on
the desired option press and hold the switch to select setup for that particular gauge/function.

Below is a list of factory gauge settings and what can be adjusted in the setup menus. You can calibrate and
adjust speedometer as often as you wish, however it should only need to be set once. The calibration will be correct for
a stock bike, but the speed can be adjusted to compensate for a change in tire size, pulley size or transmission
gearing.

RANGE Distance to Empty setup
The range reading will initially show the word “range” until a tank of gas has been driven to allow the gauge to complete its
setup based on your driving. Begin with a full tank of gas and do not refill it until it gets below ¼ tank of gas. This can be done on
multiple trips as long as no fuel is added before it gets low enough. After the initial setup the display will show “r” followed by the
calculated distance to empty. This will count down, making adjustments as necessary, until the range is 35 miles (56km) or less and
then it will show “r Lo”. The gauge will continue to make adjustments to match your driving habits with each fill up. After the initial
setup you are not required to wait for the fuel to get below ¼ tank before refilling.

The odometer can be preset by the customer within the first 100 miles. Once the odometer has more than 100 miles the
menu option will no longer be displayed. Make sure you have correctly selected the units to be either MPH or km/h first. The
odometer will be set in the selected units. Once you have preset the miles you cannot change it again. WARNING!!: This only
allows setting odometer to the nearest mile. Do not use tenths! For example a mileage of 65432.1 should be set to
“065432” using this method. If the tenths digit is used, the odometer will read 10 times too high.
Press and release the switch until “-odoMK” is displayed, then press and hold the switch until “ - ” is displayed.
The current miles will be displayed with the left most digit flashing.
Press and release the switch to increment the digit. Press and hold the switch to move to the next digit to the right.
Continue until the right most digit has been set. Press and hold the switch and the speed display will show “No”.
Press and hold the switch while “no” is displayed to go back and continue changing the odometer display. Turn the key off to
cancel any changes.
Press and release the switch to change to speed display to “yes”. Press and hold the switch while “yes” is displayed to save the
current odometer reading.

speedometer ground.
Check for a damaged or malfunctioning speed sensor.
Check all wire connections and inspect wire for breaks.
Check ground connection on speedometer and sensor.
Check for tachometer wires routed with VSS signal wires.
Check for VSS signal wires routed near ignition coils
Check for poor ignition system ground
Use suppression spark plug wires
Gauge must be calibrated (see instructions).
Check wiring connections. Blue wire should have 12 volts
when tachometer is dim.
Check wiring connections. Blue wire should have 0 volts
when tachometer is bright.
Check that the appropriate indicator wire has about 0 volts
when the indicator should be off and about 12 volts when
the indicator should be on.
Check engine trouble codes.
Unplug MCL-3006 and reprogram ECM. MCL-3006 can be
