    Default how to install dg8 on 900RR

    hi folks,

    i've installed recently an dg8 an it was too easy, so why pay money to an electrician/mechanic when you can do it yourself in 1 and a half hour.

    so all you need is an wire stripper, electrical tape, soldering gun and some allen keys.

    1. ok, so you have to unmount mirrors and windshield to make more room

    2.unmount dashboard, pull away the rubber from the connector, and strip the insulation from the harness to reweal wires.

    3. strip the insulation from the wires as follows:

    - ground : green
    - ignition + : black/brown
    - neutral switch : light green/red
    - tacho : yellow/green
    - speedo : pink/green

    4. channel the harness forn the dg8 through the rubber cover of the connector and strip the end for every wire, then solder them as follows:

    black - green (ground)
    red - black/brown (ingnition +)
    green - light green/red ( neutral)
    orange - pink/green (speedo)
    brown - yellow/green (tacho)

    5.tape every wire separately with electrical tape, then tape all the harness together like it was.

    6.pull back the rubber and insulate it with tape.

    next put back the dash, windshield and find a spot to fit the dg8, and all you have to do is learn the dg8 all your gears.

    have fun.

    I stickied the thread. Thanks for posting that.

    I had no idea what a "DGV" was until I saw the picture. Gear indicator, I'm assuming? Cool.

    Seemed interesting till I saw the price, Holy Moses....is that thing really nearly $200 shipped !!!

    Yowzers. Pass. Pretty sure I could come up with a chip and code for $5 or $7 in parts.

    But thanks for taking the time to do the write up , well done.

    Will this be affected by a F4i gauge mod?
