Default Rigging question - Outboard Specialities

I recently bought a nearly new DF150 and rigging kit from Outboard Specialities - good folks to deal with. Independent mechanic and I do mean “independent” rigged the engine and tach but is temporarily out of commission. I Still have to rig four analog gages - fuel, volts, trim and water pressure. Fuel and volts should be simple but I have questions about the other two gages. Do they just plug into the new harness in an idiot proof manner or is it more complicated. Doesn’t seem like connections will physically reach so will I need extensions? Bought a new service manual but think I really need a rigging manual that I’ve never seen advertised for sale. When you buy a computer, you get a color coded schematic showing how to connect everything. Does Suzuki have something similar for a customer needing guidance in hooking up analog gages?

Here is the wiring diagram for the tach, the other gauges will just daisy chain off of this. You will have extra bullet connectors from the tach that are black(ground) and gray(key on power), you will then need your fuel sender wire(usaully pink from tank) and the trim will have a 2 pin plug from the main harness that goes to trim gauge. Water pressure gets a hose that runs from the engine up to the gauge. The gauge light wires will also just daisy chain from one to another, black(ground) and red/green(positive)

Oh, wow, thanks for the quick response. So, just to double check, there is only one two pin connector from the trim to the harness? There are also another six bullet connectors on the trim gage - are they unused?

The gray and black wires from trim harness need to be plugged in also, they are power and ground. There are 2 of each so you can have 2 coming in and 2 going out to the next gauge. All the suzuki gauges are set up this way so you can keep daisy chaining them together. The yellow and black wires with plug is for the trim sender coming out of the main harness, should be same colors.
