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.
MAN# 650378
MOUNTING
The gauge will mount using the original housing, grommet, and screws. Unbolt the two screws from the back
plate at the back of the gauge housing, then unplug the factory gauge, noting the position of the grommets. There is one
grommet on the front between the gauge and housing and one on the back between the housing and the back plate.
Install the Dakota Digital gauge in reverse order installing grommets and then plugging into the factory plug and securing
with the two screws.
FUNCTION SWITCH

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.

FUEL
FUEL Low fuel light and distance to empty setup
If the range feature is turned on, 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.
•
Press and release the switch until “FUEL” is displayed, then press and hold the switch until “ – ” is displayed.
•
The display will show “OFF”, “SPo”(Sportster), “CSt”(custom), or “HD” (2012-up Dyna or Softail).

If “CST” or “HD” are chosen, then additional setup options are available. “SET LO” and “RANGE”.
•
“SET LO” allows adjustment of the low fuel warning point. Press and hold the switch while “SET LO” is displayed.
o Release the switch. The speed display will initially show the current setting in percent.
The menu options will be “DONE”, “TEST”, “RESET”, and “ADJUST”.
o “DONE” will exit the low fuel setup.
o “TEST” will show the currently measured fuel precent.
o “RESET” will store the factory default of 25%.
o “ADJUST” will allow the current fuel level to be stored as the low fuel level.
•
“RANGE” allows the miles to empty feature to be setup. Press and hold the switch while “RANGE” is displayed.
o Release the switch. The display will show whether the range feature is currently “ON” or “OFF”. Press and
release the switch to change this. Press and hold the switch to save it and continue.
o If “ON” is selected, the next setup options are “done” or “RESET”.
o “DONE” will exit the range setup.
o “RESET” will reset the gauge to the beginning of the initial range learning.
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 ECM odometer reading 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.
