09 Triple

You'll need a 2 button cluster off a late model round headlight bike. The clusters off the new headlight bikes won't work in an 08-10 round headlight bike. They are not plug and play.

Does that help?

Yes. Like Jimmy said, only the last batch round headlight bikes of 2010 had a new shape gauge that is plug & play for older 08-10 bikes.

How difficult is that last part of the swap? Does the cover/weather sealing open easily? Or is it a heat and re-glue of operation?
No glue or heat involved. Only screws.

Fiddly part is that you have to remove tacho needle by prying with 2 spoons. It's only a push fit onto the electric motor. On reinstall you probably have to do multiple tries on refitting & checking with power, so that you get needle to sit at zero. It's a bit of an trial & error affair as the motor always moves the needle a hair.

But all in all very easy operation.

Edit. Have a look at this Hayabusa thread, our Triple gauges are by same manufacturer and with similar construction:

Can someone please post the part # for the early '11 new style gauges for the '08-'10 S3?

Thanks!

^If you can find a 08-10 owner to try his clocks on your bike, you could verify. If the 08+ clocks work, then the 2010 SE clocks will as well. Or more importantly if your bike ECU allows starting with the 08+ gauges - that seems to be the main issue.

Even the 2011+ clocks seem to share most of the same functions, it is just some ECU request-response annoyance coded by Triumph, that will prevent bike from starting. I tried late bike clocks on 2009 bike and they work OK if I first start bike with original clocks and hot-plug the later in. But bike will not start if late clocks are plugged in while cranking.

My bike will start and run without clocks all together , so no problem there.

I'll keep my eyes peeled
