I don't think there has ever been an analog LCD gauge. Analog is normally needle and dial. The multifunction gauge is a digital display fed with analog information. This is opposed to a digital display that is fed digital information. Command Link falls into this latter category.

There have been a number of versions of the digital multifunction gauge made that will fit your motor. Do you already have the 2003 tachometer?

What model motor do you have? What tachometer do you have today that you want to replace? Does it have round connectors on some of the wires coming from the back or does it have square connectors.

I am assuming that your motor has a square nine pin connector in the engine pan that connects to your existing tachometer.

It appears that you will need a converter cable (61A-82541-00-00) at the engine end and a new trim/oil harness (68F-82553-XX-00) that runs from the converter cable to the tachometer.

It appears that your particular motor only used a round connecter for the oil tank harness.

The oil tank has been by-passed so I can premix.Will that have any bearing on what I'm trying to do??Thanks jethro1 for your input! (y)

If you have removed the oil injection system then you will not have a good bit of functionality from the gauge. For instance, the oil status indicator icons will be useless to you. You will need a way to fool the gauge into thinking that the oil system is full of oil, both in the main tank and the remote tank. Otherwise you will have oil icons flashing all of the time, or some of them missing. And maybe the warning horn blaring and the motor going into RPM reduction model. I suppose that the float sensors could be taped so they are at the top of the sensor shaft all of the time.

Yes they are,so the engine doesn't go into default mode.So is this a possibility to do Or should I just install the speedo gauges.I wanted them all to match.I know there is some gauges that look like my old gauges,but I wanted it to look newer.I just love the 2strk yammi's.4 strks are so heavy!!
