Harley Offers New Digital Gear Indicator

Friday, May 27, 2011
Harley digital gear indicator
Harley-Davidson is offering this bar-mounted LED gear indicator for many of its 2007-and-later motorcycles.
The new Digital Gear Indicator (P/N 70900038 Chrome, P/N 70900078 Black; $219.95) from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories eliminates gear-selection guesswork. Conveniently located on the handlebar for line-of-site viewing, the bright LED display is easy-to-read with a quick glance. When the clutch is out, the display indicates the current gear, or a large “N” when the transmission is in the neutral position. A built-in photocell automatically adjusts the display for improved visibility in direct sunlight, and dims the display at night to reduce distraction.
Plug-and-play installation requires no wire splicing or complicated programming. Available in chrome or satin black finish, the complete kit includes a self-contained LED and control module, control housing, wiring harness and required mounting hardware. Fits many 2007-later VRSC, Sportster, Dyna, and Touring models, and 2007-10 Softail models. It may not fit with some other accessories. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company produces heavyweight custom, cruiser and touring motorcycles and offers a complete line of Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts, accessories, riding gear and apparel, and general merchandise.

Come on Harley, great idea but a bad location. Perhaps if you could incorporate it in a helmet like a heads-up display you might get one up on the imports. Can we all imagine a American made helmet that only works only on a American made motorcycle that gave you gear, engine temp, speed, and more at a glance. Surely the only country in the world to put a man on the moon could do such a thing first.
