I want to know if wiring the Digi gear indicator, Rev light and the yellow box is going to effect anything else. Because they all basically use the same wires. They all need the speedo sensor, tach sensor, power supply and ground. What do you guys think?

electrical wiring........

was a low voltage repair tech over 20 years

use a good wiring kit
try not to let your salty sweaty fingers
touch much of what you are wiring

reason being on the motorcycles moisture
accumulates in those very places they wire & hide
the electrics

copper does corrode over time
if you are going to wire
do it one time......do it right
dont use twist or wire nuts
make your connections as water resistant as possible
make as few splices as possible

if you are going to wire something in.....leave it in
reason being each cut....each splice is a
possible trouble spot in the future

good luck

Just another thing to consider, if you can solder all joints instead of using crimp-on inline connectors, at least then there is less chance of a high resitance join that may overload the system. Heat-shrink is also a great investment, and if it looks like it may rub on something (remember even the engine vibrations can cause problems after a while,) then either use more than one layer of heat-shrink, or use a grommet of some type.

Thanks for the info but I was wandering is this going to cause a voltage drop or to much resistance to the sensor that I am going to splice into.

So long as your connections are clean, you won't have a problem...
