Question Want TFT display for 2019 for my 2018

So I have a 2018 H2. Want the 2019 color tft display. Having a hard time reading the display that comes with the bike. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the new display and get it on my 2018?

I am in the EXACT same boat.

First the 2019 parts are not available yet.

Second I may very well be possible it is a plug and play, our 2018 bikes have pretty much the same info, and hopefully they just changed the display.
We won't know till someone is brave enough to try it. I have a feeling the parts are going to be pricy. Also it looks like they may have changed some of the plastic surrounds.

If it end up being possible, I will do it. But at the moment we have to wait till next April to get any parts.

I think it will be unlikely to be plug and play Ted, especially given the functionality of the new display with Bluetooth connectivity etc. You can change the settings of the bike all from a phone app so I suspect itís a different ECU, wiring loom etc. Plastic surrounds are also different too as per pic.
Iíll find out next March when mine arrives

I don't disagree, but the display may be separate from the Bluetooth stuff and have a different module, usually stuff like that is seprate. I did mention the surrounds.
And rub it in, that you are getting the new bike.

You should trade yours too now itís high mileage! Got to be a easier than trying to retrofit a display

This is Ted... Ted sustained these injuries through a motorcycle accident... Although Ted didn't actually bail off his bike.. his wife however found out that he traded up his expensive new H2 for another newer more expensive H2 because Ted didn't like the display. Don't be Ted.

Hey Ted, thanks for responding. No doubt it will be expensive. I wanted to buy another fancy washer like the one that holds our muffler to the frame. It was $70.00 plus dollars for a washer!! I can only imagine what a TFT display would cost! Let's work on it together and share info as it becomes available.

UK price for the H2 SX TFT display is £1636.54 (around $2122) so assuming itís doable it wont be a cheap fix..
