    1997 Road King Speedo Upgrade Wiring Question

    I bought a new Drag Specialties Speedo 2210-0344 and Wiring Harness 212-0302 a few months ago and just now installing it.  I have everything connected except the four wires from the new speedo harness orange/white, white/green, black/yellow and black.  

    The old speedo had "Five" wires connected to it (not four like the new one) labeled orange/white, white/green, black/yellow and two more wires, one says GN/R (P) that is black and the other additional wire is just black with no label.   What do I do with the black wires from both?  Thank you, Pat

    Orange/White should be the backlights. GN/R (P) and the Black look both look like ground wires. (P) usually means Power so based off of what I am seeing in the photo it should be the ground. Question when you go back to the deutch pin connector for the speedo is it a 4 or 5 pin connector?

    I didn't have the deutch pin removal tool and since I wasn't sure which old pins to pull from the deutch connector I didn't touch the connector/pins and really jack them up.   I went with splicing the four new wires in with the old, secured/taped off the GN/R (P) and connected the other color-coded four wires to their mates and it works like a champ!  Thanks!
