Just had mine installed today. It's the 4" model(Dynas) and due to year of my bike, '05, all the possible functions of the instrument does not work/apply. No gear indicator and no fuel/mileage remaining read out. I believe from '07 forward all of these functions would work. Mine will give fuel in tank reading, rpm, speed, trip mileage readout, color selection for back light but believe that's it. My primary reason for going with it was to have the tach read out. Have not picked up the bike yet, going after it in the morning, and was told you have to put believe 32 miles on it for the instrument to "set??" My set up with the JIMS120 seems to really "light up" from what I am guessing is somewhere near 3000rpm, but won't take me a little while riding tomorrow to see just where the power band is on it. It is a good looking unit and to me expensive, but it's on there now.
Additonal info: Well, went and got box/papers and unit also has a clock and the color selection is wide: red, amber/orange, yellow,yellow green, green, green/blue, blue, blue/violet, violet, pink, red shade, white, what more could you ask!!(think I will avoid the pink lighting, must be for girls bikes)
2008 /Dynas have all functions available except range/miles to go. 2009 -2011 Dynas have all functions available. It would appear that the dealer is to download miles on bike when installed and has tamper proof system so as to not be able to alter true mileage on the bike.
