I see you guys never ran a business....Lets say you are selling Kumquats...
And your supplier sells you one Kumquat for a dollar...Now add in Rent, Salaries,R and D, Taxes, Advertising, Insurance, Government Regulations ETC.... Then sell the Kumquat for Two Dollars...And after ordering another dollar Kumquat for stock,
See how long you stay in business...

and yes, in todays world it would not work.. back in the 60's -70's it actually got close

Just say'n

Yup, I should have mentioned that. I was mostly pointing out that there will never be a way to enable it in the Radio without changing the sensor as well

It's only been 17 months since HD came out with this Boom Box update. One of the changes was the oil pressure display for 2017 bikes. I guess they're still working on the P&A accessory for those that want to see an actual number vs "OK" for oil pressure.




Boom! Box 6.5GT
Date Released: 08/23/2016
Version: 1.20.1
Change Log:
Improvements



• Vehicle Information screen will display “OK” or “Check Oil”
for oil pressure on MY17 models. Oil pressure values can
be enabled with a P&A accessory for MY17 vehicles.

Interesting, I might be mistaken on the sensor, unless the P&A involves a new sensor
