I've lurked far too long and researched this but need the experts info on this one. I'd like to upgrade my '08 IC with the "09" version to get the gear indicator feature. The ICs are interchangeable and have the same part #. Some new ones are available on EBay showing a Revision "A" and Revision "F". Which revision includes the gear indicator display? I'm not going to purchase merely based on a date of manufacture stamp.


Also, what will this do to my clocked mileage? Used ones for sale indicate a mileage associated with them......am I to infer a new IC is the module that contains the bikes mileage and will show a (new) super low mileage bike!!?!??

Thanks
Dan

While they are interchangeable, the part numbers are different. Y0500.1AM is a 08 cluster (no gear indicator), Y0500.2AM is a 09 cluster (with gear indicator), and Y0500.3AM is the 2010 cluster (same as 2009 but has different flasher programming for the incandescent bulbs.)

Used clusters will display the mileage of the bike it came off of. If you want the mileage to match, you will need to buy a new cluster as it will download the mileage off your ECM.

Just look for a recent software version on the back of the unit. SW 6.1 or SW 6.2 will give you the gear indicator display.

B2TomTom,

I so happened to find that EXACT Rev A 6.2 SW on Ebay for $150. No hard feelings - but PayPal/Ebay was a quick-secure guarantee.

The more i've read up on the IC upgrade for the Gear indicator i realized it will also take care of my older SW...parasitic battery drain i had going on!

I declare victory before 10am! time for another cup of coffee

**Do you think the '09 stator "upgrade" was a bandaid to the IC security system battery drain prior to a root cause actually being discovered? ripple effects being overly aggressive charging rate/overheating/burnt wiring-connector/HD hardness "fix" etc, etc.....

Even without the cluster drain bug, the 08 charging system is barely adequate. If you run accessories or don't keep the revs high enough you won't keep the battery charged. I modified my ECM to make the fans run a little less aggressively, to help keep things charged when I have the high beam or heated gear on.


The 09 system has quite a bit more power and generates more at lower RPMs, making it work better for a street bike. The only problem with the 09 stator was that it did not have sufficient cooling at lower RPMs resulting in premature failure.
