Holy shift light Batman!

By request a few members wanted to see the shift light I ordered installed and in action. This is a light by Autometer part number 5343 Digital Pro Level 1. It has a single shift light setting, Max RPM recorder and 4 levels of light brightness 0-3 . Heres a few pics for your viewing enjoyment. 1st photo is just in "standby" 2nd is Level - 0 light setting and 3rd is Level 3 brightness!

That's a great shift light and the same one HD uses for the Screamin Eagle shift light - only difference is the screamin eagle logo screened on the side and the mount. They work great.

I guess yours is the shift light thats similar to the one posted by the OP, I'm actually wanting to install this one in the CVO tach housing since my tach died long time ago and that way I would have tach and shift light together. It's actually bigger (2 1/16" diameter display) but it will fit better in my tach housing's 3" diameter dial. I'm actually waiting for reply after placing the order a couple days ago

FWIW UPDATE: Apparently Stewart Warner's shift lights are no longer available

Heres a few more pics of the Shift light. Install is very easy. Green wire to the #3 pin ECM, Hot Red & Ground Black.Yes I have some Green wire going into my Switch hot but the light comes with about 3ft more then you need on the Green wire. The Black & Red were a bit short. The light itself is about 2 1/16 in round and 5in long. Only NEGATIVE review I have is the wire has NO protective wrap (heat shrink) the whole lenght of the wiring so I added it myself, otherwise I love it!

Ok so the Stewart Warner shift gauge I posted earlier is apparently impossible to get anywhere so I'll be moving to an Autometer one. Question to vrunner, does your level 1 has a launch mode setting? According to the specs on their website it doesn't but wanted to double check with you.
