Hey guys, hopin someone can help me out with the answer to this...
My bike, 2006 XL1200C, has no speedo and my buddy has an old one off his 2008 Nightster. Does anyone know if i can use the 08 with my 06? Googled, searched in forums, can't seem to find a clear yes or no answer.

Thanks!

I doubt that it'll work. The '08 is fuel injected and the speedo is tied into the ECM whereas the '06 was not.

The FI speedos do sweep diagnostics every time the ignition is cycled. If the ICM on the '06 doesn't recognize the speedo it's probably not going to function.
Probably wouldn't hurt anything to give it a try though !
