    I like your determination.

    If you send me a S.A.S.E.* and help me figure the wiring to check mileage today, I will give you one of the non-UV protected faceplate overlays for free.

    And if you're talking about blanking the odometer by disconnecting the battery, I don't want one with 0 miles... Just one with close to, preferably lower than, 30,000.

    Black w/ brown stripe (black plug) - Ignition feed
    Brown w/ white stripe (black plug) - Illumination (to make sure it works)
    Red w/ grren stripe (black plug) - mainly used for clock memory, may be needed to fire gauges up.


    ...

    The green with white stripe is for the side stand signal. Shouldnt need it to fire the gauges up. Disconnect hot from it. I believe its actually looking for a ground. So, for now, disconnect it. When I tested my gauges I used the above wires I listed and it tested fine.

    Not trying to make you look bad... I wrote down the ones you told me, listed below. So either you, or I was drunk, or slipped. Thanks all, I'll give this a try!

    Nope. Not yet. Been busybusybusy since I got back from Cali. Hopefully I can start messing around with it tonight. My main concern is to find if it works ok or not so I can deal with / leave feedback for the eBay seller. Installation is somewhere down the line... (Item #1376 on my giant list of unfinished projects)

    I *did* buy a decent leather punch last night so I could enlarge the holes on the ones I've already printed... But am still having a difficult time finding UV Safe Clear Spraypaint... And there doesn't seem to be much, if ANY, interest in the screenprinted ones yet.

    At present, I have tried hooking the following wires up:

    Solid Green from White plug to battery ground.

    Red w/ Green stripe, and Black with Brown stripe from Black plug, and Green with White stripe on White plug to Positive from battery... Nothing. Nothing lights up.

    Any help appreciated in advance! (From anyone, but Sime seems to be the most knowledgeable on this mod...) Also, if you want one of my F4i/900RR faceplates for yours, it's on me, just PM me your mailing address again.
    Hey Jawhn,

    Thanks for the offer on the custom faceplate. That's a real nice offer of you and I would definitely want one. Will PM you my address.

    Now, onto the wiring...

    Reg/green is the positive terminal. I connected mine inline with a fuse as a direct connection to the positive terminal on the battery. This is what powers your clock.

    The solid green/white stripe wire should be hooked to your side stand single wire connection.

    The black with brown stripe is your ignition wire. I seem to recall the wire you need to connect this to on your harness is a plain brown wire.

    Check your ground, and also have a look at the F4i schematic again just to verify:

    LMK how you go!

    Cheers,
    Sime

    Lol. I was getting ready to give this a go right now, and realized you were giving me directions on how to WIRE this thing up.

    Right now, I just want to know what wires to connect to check mileage on this eBay item...

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me do this...

    Right now, find someone that has an F4i and ask them just to plug it in to the bike? The only thing it would hurt on theirs is the tripometer would reset itself unplugging it.

    But if you just want to check mileage that is what I would do!!!

    Laters.
    Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, cigar in one hand, beer in the other, body used up, totally worn-out and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    I considered that, but I don't know anyone with an F4i...

    I would imagine that you could wire a 9v battery and touch the + wire to the power lead on the gauge. Should be enough juice to just power up the mileage. Just a guess. I have done that with tracing household wires from an outlet and someone in the attic with a volt meter. It picked up the jump of juice in the line so it should work for your needs

    Bo . . . did you pull the factory sticker off or just try to get lucky with lining up the numbers ? I figure if you are off a little the numbers might be a bit darker

    Just bought a F4i gauge for $50, and the person had one more left at the same price. There is only one flaw with the one left. The middle post on the back is missing, but other than that it was in great shape. Just wanted to see if anyone is interested. The part is in Atlanta, GA.

    The gauge has only 2603 miles on it.

    Merry Christmas... I got the 900RR gauge plugs from Bo (Thanks a ton, man!) and figured before I started rewiring it, I should mark where they all originally went.

    So... Here's a PDF with all the wire designations for the F4i plugs as well as the 900RR plugs. (Bo said he thought they were 95-97 gauges)

    So. If anyone knows if the wires are different for different years, let me know and I'll update the PDF with more info. (Can't remember what year my F4i gauges are) Likewise, if I got mixed up on any wires, let me know. Got a lil cross-eyed working on this... Hope it helps folks anyway.

    At some point I'd like to add what each wire is for, not just the colors. Another day.
