I installed my 2856 aaaages ago now. It's been fine, but I dislike the blue lighting.
The speedo adapter works just fine, and I wired the cluster to use the stock connectors. I also made a breakout box that handles the CEL and Low Fuel indicators, so it triggers the Alarm light and causes the fuel level bar to flash, respectively, when either is triggered. A pair of relays and some creativity can be used to recreate it.
The blue light is one of the main reasons I went with the 4XXX gauge, I too don't like blue lights. With the 4xxx you can adjust the backlight to any color you want. Also, I prefer the needle tach vs. digital.
How did you mount to the top triple? I'm thinking of cutting a bracket out of 1/8" aluminum similar to the wood template I made.
