You need the complete harness from the 600 HO. The MFD uses some AC current and some DC current for various functions. The engine also need a thermistor not just a hot switch in order for the MFD to read engine temp. The HO harness has the capability of supplying all the necessary inputs. The only other harnesses that can do that are the CFI harnesses.
Unless you can get the HO harness with all the components the MFD will not work.
How much of a project would it be to adapt to the motor itself? I'd def change out the temp sensor in the motor, one of the reasons i like the MFD... I'm just worried about the ECU, because its not a plug in style, it runs into the coils and the stator...
I was kind of hoping you'd reply erick, do you know any differences between a standard xc/edge driveshaft and the IQ one as far as fitment is concerned? Thanks
For the MFD to work you need the HO CDI, Engine harness,Chassis and hood harness.
If you want the speedo to work you also need the encoder and mount from the drive shaft as the MFD used a digital reading for speed instead of a cable.
The whole system works together.
You can not take part of an older system and hook it together with the newer system.
Also the thermistor has a different thread pitch than the older temp switch. The thermistor needs the correct head to go with it or else some sort of adapter the convert the thread pitch.
This sounds like a lot of parts and it is so if you want this system be prepared to round up everything needed or else there is no point in starting.
