POWER & GROUND
The gauge is a direct plug in. Constant battery power and key switched power are supplied by the stock
harness along with ground.
STATUS AND WARNING INDICATORS
Several indicators are supplied on the stock wiring harness. Some of these may not be active on your
motorcycle. These include the security, engine, ABS, and low fuel.
LOW VOLTAGE WARNING
When the voltage drops below the warning limit with the engine running, LO and your current voltage will be
displayed. (default warning limit is 11.0V)
SPEEDOMETER & TACHOMETER
The speedometer and tachometer signals are read from the engine control module (ECM) over a data bus.
The speed can be calibrated to allow for differences in tires or gearing; calibration is discussed later.
The tach bar displays rpm x1000 with a range of 7000 rpm. The rpm can also optionally be shown on the message
display.
CLOCK
The clock uses a 12 hour format and can be set by pressing and holding the switch while the clock is
displayed. After the switch is held for a few seconds the hours will begin flashing. Momentarily pressing the switch will
change the hours, holding the switch will move to the minute set, and the minutes will begin flashing. Momentarily
pressing the switch will now change the minutes. Holding the switch will exit the clock set mode.
MOUNTING
The gauge will mount into the original housing using original grommet, screws, and mounting clip. Remove the
stock gauge by pulling it out of the housing using a slight rocking motion; it is held in place by a plastic mounting clip on
the back of the gauge. Once out, remove the two screws from the back of the mounting clip, then unplug the gauge.
Remove the grommet from the stock gauge and install it over the MCL-3207. Plug in the MCL-3207 and secure the
mounting clip with the two screws. Push the gauge firmly back into the hole making sure the clip lines up with the slots
in the dash and also watching that wires are not damaged or pinched. (see photos below and on next page)

gEAr Gear Indicator setup
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
This gauge has a single digit display for gear position. The gauge can learn the gear ratios based on speed and rpm so
no sensors are needed, just what you’ve already connected. It will work with 4, 5, 6, or 7 speed transmissions. The factory
preset option will preset the indicator to work with a stock 5 or 6 speed drive train. With a stock 6 speed there will be a slight
delay the first time you shift to sixth gear as the system verifies the gear. Subsequent shifts to sixth gear will not have the
delay. You can also program each gear position for aftermarket transmissions or if you’ve changed wheel size or sprocket
size. To program the gear positions, begin at a section of road where you can gradually shift through all of the gears. Press
and hold the switch while turning the key on and starting the engine. Once the engine is running, release the switch.
Press and release the switch until “gEAr” is displayed, press and hold the switch until “ - ” is displayed.
The display will show “off”, “PRESET”, “P-883-”, or “Learn”. “oFF” will disable the indicator. “PRESET” will set the indicator for
an original factory transmission. “P-883-” will set the indicator for a Sportster 883 transmission. “LEARN” allows it to work with
virtually any transmission option.
To program each gear individually, press and release the switch until “Learn” is displayed, then press and hold the switch.
The message will show “LO TCH” if the engine rpm is below 1500, or “LO SPD” if the vehicle speed is below 5 MPH.
st
Begin driving in 1 gear. The display should show GEAR 1 and the “1” should be flashing. Drive at a steady speed until the
“1” goes steady and then changes to a flashing “2”, it should only take about 20 seconds if the speed and RPMs are steady.
Optional: If the gear does not stop flashing you can manually override and jump to the next gear by pressing and
releasing the switch to store the gear position quicker.
nd
Shift to 2 gear and drive at a steady speed.
Wait until the “2” goes steady and then changes to a flashing “3”. Shift to 3rd gear.
Optional: If the gears do not stop flashing you can manually override and jump to the next gear by pressing and
releasing the switch to store the gear position quicker.
Repeat this through each gear. When you are done, come to a complete stop or press and hold the switch until the display
shows “donE” and then release it.
Press and release the switch to restart the gauges in normal operation, verify the gear position by riding through each gear
and seeing if positions agree.

odoMK Odometer preset
•
•
•
•
•
•
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.
