Once again, I am not certain of the color of the battery(-) wire on the 12, just the location, which is above.

digi red (power) - connects to brown/white on 12.
digi blue (neutral) - connects to light green on 12.
digi yellow (tach) - connects to light blue on 12.
digi green (speedo) - connects to yellow on 12.
digi orange (set -up) - need to touch to some ground (exposed/unpainted) part on frame. I used a nut which secures my steering dampener to the frame.

Now that I've said all that - go here for more of the same info, and better instructions on programming it: <a href=http://www.bohnarmor.com/riderstations/datatoolinstall.html>www.bohnarmor.com/riderstations/datatoolinstall.html</a>

no problem, if you got the wiring instructions from digi - it is pretty self explanitory. First remove windscreen. (going from memory here) Loosen the screws for the instrument panel and unplug the wire harness from the back of it, then remove it to give yourself some room (this will take you about 5 minutes). You need to expose all the colored wires in the bundle. I did this a few of inches down the bundle (still a little tight). Very important that you solder your connections, or the unit will probably not work. find the necessary color coded wires using the wiring instructions from digi - and match the ones on bike to ones on unit. I did not cut any of the wires on the bike but you probably can, and it would make stripping them easier. I carefully stripped off about about 1 inch of the insulation for each wire on bike, then soldered to appropriate wire in digi, then taped it up. I completed each wire before starting on the next - very slow and methodical. For the ground it would help if you had a service manual, because they don't tell you which wire on the harness is ground. If you try grounding it to the frame - I know from experience that it won't work - must be soldered to ground wire in cluster. Page 15-47 in my manual shows the wiring diagram for the instrument panel. I wired ground to "battery (-)" wire. It is position 12 in the cluster, and if memory serves, was the only plain black wire. Position one is the Tachometer. Position 11 is directly under the tach wire, so position 12 is obviously next to 11.

Once you are done - digi should light up when ignition turned on - now for the hard part - programing it. I could never get mine to recognize first gear. Tried and tried, but always thought it was second (however I've got full muzzy pipe, if you are stock it may work. I know I talked to someone on this board who was able to get all 6 gears. Did mine while on rear stand. It was a pain, and bike got very hot. Even though I never got 1st programmed, I am very happy with it. It immediately recognizes when I shift gears, is very accurate, and I never find myself looking for 7th gear. Besides, you'd have to be a moron to not know when you are in first anyway. Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

one note - make sure you put plenty of aluminum foil under and around anything you are soldering. Dont want to drip solder on anything!
