There's some really nice options here. I'd love to see a couple more pictures of different mountings on our bikes.......

The connector is the Amp/TYCO Multilock 174058-2. The pins are 173682.

The OTHER connector, for the ground source for the CEL and Low Fuel Indicator are a standard Sumitomo 3-pin connector.

Here's the various threads you should check out:

http://www.triumphrat.net/twins-tech...efi-bikes.html

Those should at least get you started! Let me know if you need any more help/direction. It's all pretty easy, IMO, just requires patience.

This looks like an update to the Acewell that started this thread. The idiot lights aren't big bulbs so maybe someone is listening.

And the mount on the back is of a different design, too. Two anchoring points instead of three small screws in the middle.

Too funny! I love how American cops ask such excellent rhetorical questions. It's like being chewed out by the football coach. .[/quote]The question is not rhetorical. As soon as you admit to how fast you were going, even low balling it a bit just over the limit, you have admitted guilt. When the cop returns to his vehicle he promptly records your admission of guilt in the even you decide to contest the ticket.

Will post pics once I start to get it installed.

Does anyone have a source to buy replacement plug so that I can wire it to plug right into the bikes wiring harness?
Also looking for a plug for the tail light/rear indicators for a similar switch with the ability to maintain the plug and plan option.
How did it go ? Interested in getting the same so...
Let us know

Still working on it. It has been slow going, tough finding time to work on the bike these days. I hope to make some progress tomorrow morning on my day off (forget the parades and football).
I've got it wired and working, need to finish the mounting bracket. I took it out for a test ride last week and had a hard time seeing the LCD. The screen is fairly directional and my head is up too high to see the numbers, need to bend the mounting bracket so that the gauge is tilted up more. Casida did this to his so I know its possible, but it looks like 3/16" thick metal.
I love the look of the gauge and actually seeing the headlight bucket while riding. It really is a slim and cleaned up look. Now the stock gauges look huge in comparison.
Will post some pictures and detailed description once I get it all buttoned up. Here is a link to another thread that has some pictures and my progress so far.

I cold-bent the bracket by unbolting it after I had removed the wiring, then put it into a vice with some padding. I then used a two pound sledgehammer and tapped it lightly time and again to bend the bracket, checking frequently to make sure I had the angle I wanted and wasn't creating stress fractures or anything.

That's what I thought I'd need to do. Was thinking of wrapping it and slipping a long pipe over it for leverage.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize I would need to bend the bracket until I got all my wiring sorted out and mounted on the bike
Gauge had to be powered up to realize that the viewing angle isn't right.
I might be able to pull the wires out of the connectors, don't think I pushed the pins all the way into the Amp/Tyco plug. If I did, not sure how it will come apart as those plugs/pins seem to be a one shot deal.
