Part1 / Part2 / Part3 / Part4 / Part5 / Part6 / Part7 / Part8 / Part9 / Part10 / Part11 / Part12 / Part13 / Part14 / Part15

Easiest way to start a project is always doing a benchmarking or market analysis. Doing this, we will be able to know what do we want, how do we want it and if we can reduce the complexity of the project by using already existing components.

    This is the solution that HD gives to all of you wanting to incorporate a second gauge with an analog tachometer into your Sportster. According the installation manual, this kit has, as interesting part for our project, a double gauge bracket (ref#: 67338-97) and a specific harness (ref#: 68811-07).

    Another solution offered by HD if you prefer having only 1 gauge on the bike to show all the information. According the installation manual, this kit only includes this 2 in 1 gauge, so there is no other part that we can use. Nevertheless, we have a datasheet with some additional information that can come in handy. Three things:

    • You need to copy the information from the original speedometer/odometer to the new gauge.
    • Since 2008, Sportster ECM can inform about the current gear.
    • The gauge will also inform about the fuel level if you purchase separately the Fuel Sensor Kit (Ref# 61200008).
  • Harley Davidson - Speedo and Tachometer from a Sportster XR1200R (Price April'16: 518.00 USD / HD UE - € ):

    First option that is different from the ones that HD proposes. As expected, it is not sold as a kit and you have to buy the parts separately or try to find a good deal on the internet in the second hand market. Parts:

    Yet another solution, this time not from HD. This is only 1 gauge with everything integrated and plug&play. According the installation manual, this unit has many interesting functions using the available information in the data bus as the current gear, rpm, engine temperature,... and it also has special functions as time from 0-100kph (0-60mph), adjustable shifting point,... This is a true sporty gague... very interesting indeed.

    Super simple design offered by this brand with only the 2 most significant dígits to show the engine RPM. Remember that stock Sportster 883/1200 only get up to aprox 6000 RPM. This tachometer comes with two different finishes (chrome and black) and it uses only 3 wires (Ign, ground and spark plug ignition coil).
