here is a link to the installation instructions.

http://www.dakotadigital.com/pdf/hly-3013.pdf

gray on the speedo is the speed sensor signal wire.

if your speed sensor needs an external voltage source, use the red/white.

as far as the speedo unit goes, red goes to switched 12v ignition power, black needs a good ground.

read the section on connecting the speed sensor. they discuss various options. one of them should match your configuration.

let me know if you need more help.

if not,lease leave a POSITIVE RATING.

thank you,

Steve
