Do you find the white lines that aren't lit up distracting, on the cheaper models?
Is it easy to quickly read the correct number, even with the unlit white lines?

Got the Idea gear indicator off amazon. 5 min install and works very well ,even in bright sunlight, to keep me out of the often mentioned 7th gear. Initial placement kept falling off so just moved it to give the tape more surface area.

Off topic, but what are the bolts in the sides of your windshield brackets for?  Is that a change for the 2016+ models?

Excellent question. I had to go do a little Sherlocking, and I can say with all certainty, "damned if I know". They seem to be just sitting in the bracket holding the nuts. Adding rigidity to the bracket or as a mounting point for something is my best WAG. Wiser heads on here may know.

O.T.
The nuts are attached to cowl stay. Remove the windshield first, then the two screws on each side allows you to reposition windshield about 2" higher. If I'm looking at the same thing you are. Cheers, T

Farkles: A silly little word for things I know nothing about until I read another post and wonder "Why in the world have I not gotten this yet?"

So the bracket itself has two positions, aside from the high/low positions of the windscreen mounting screws?   
 For a total of four different combinations for 4 different windscreen heights?  Interesting!

Just bought one from ebay. Problem is it came with a 4 way styled OP plug and the wiring colours are red,black and white. I have a 6 way OP plug under my seat and my auxilliary lights are connected to one of the terminals. There are no wiring instructions, just set up instructions for gear setup. Anyone any ideas where the wiring goes? I wonder if my front OP plug is 4 way?

Just realised it connects to the red diagnostic plug and not the options plug. Still don't know the wiring combination.

Hi - looking at the back of the plug, with the slot at the bottom - the wires are top left black; top right white and bottom right red - bottom left keeps the blank cap as in your photo.
Hope that helps (I intended adding a photo but can do later)
