My current instrument cluster face plate is cracked, so I purchased a brand new one off ebay. Can I just plug it in and go? Or do I have reprogram it? Also is there a way to enter the old mileage from the old cluster? The bike is an 03 999

Thanks, Mike

Yeah the only way to get your old milage back on the new clock is to RIDE IT!
Look at it as free milage =) OR a real low milage bike. If the bike its a keeper who cares ?

Thanks for the input but, I need a solid anwser because I still have to get the bike a new salvage title coming from Cal to Nevada currently has a Cal salvage. So I'm thinking that DMV will want to see the true old milage.

I'm not 100% sure but I'm going to say this with 97.3% certainty - No you can't, unless the new dash comes with a new red key and lock set. You will almost certainly also need a new ECU as I'm guessing your existing ECU is married to your cracked clocks. Possibly, if you have already swapped your OEM ECU with a Termi DP ECU, and you never used the red key you will be OK. You cannot reset the mileage.

When my clocks cracked - I had them replaced on warranty, and had to have the key set and ECU swapped. I wish there was a definitive hall of wisdom answer to this as this often comes up.

Yeah, you can certainly just swap the cases out. If you look on the side, there's a "gap" where the top and bottom halves meet. About 10 places or so around this gap, there's a slightly deeper "hole", and if you insert a flat blade screwdriver in there and twist, the two halves will pop open. Work your way around, and just swap the tops.

Not a Problem

I had my cluster replaced under warrantee and the dealer didn't require the red key . The cluster can be set up for any 749/999 via the instructions in you user manual. The clusters are 'generic' and can be set for bike type, country & measurment type ie km/ml.PM me if you need ANY help with the set-up proceedure. I am quiet sure of these facts as i was curious when i had the new one fitted and asked alot of questions !
