you may need that little black box thing, just behind ya speedo i think. I have to have this on my H, although ive got L rev and temp guages. Mines on a race loom, so im not sure of wiring etc tho......

I think you can substitute the black box thingy for a resister of some sort, but again im not sure what type......useless i know! Whats wrong with the H clocks anyhow?

nothin wrong with clocks really apart from the kmh speedo,L clocks look much better!!!
why would i need to change the box when with original clocks it was fine??
