Okay, said a month back I would post the wiring details that I used to connect the WIREPLUS digital speedo. Overall it was pretty easy and straight forward with just one or two small points that aren't obvious.
First of all the original Honda sensor works perfectly with the digital speedos so that makes life real easy. I could not get any information from WirePlus nor Dakota on the compatability of their speedos and VTX hondas, how companys like this survive beats me.
The list below shows the functions and the color of the wires, these wires are all located on the two small 7 pin (green) connectors that go from the bike to the speedo.
I found a photo of the connectors, her they are;
I cut the cables going up to the speedo about 3 inches up from the connectors. The new speedo wires are then soldered to these and then simply plugged back into the main loom.
The diagrams below are cut from an ABS model but I don't expect the non ABS to be much different.
All connectors and wires mentioned in this article are located inside the headlight for easy access.
FURY SPEEDO WIRING (ABS)
NOTE 1. +12V I initially used the PINK wire for the 12volts but found this was connected directly to the battery and the speedo never turned off. We need 12V that is switched by the ignition switch. I used a Black/Red wire going to the starter switch but on reviewing the diagrams you should use the BROWN wire in the diagram above which is switched via the ignition switch and is much simpler as you have already cut this wire and its ready to solder onto the new speedos +12V input.
NOTE 2. TURN SIGNALS. If you use the wires that go to the speedo, ie LEFT - ORANGE and RIGHT - LIGHT BLUE the leds on the new speedo will come on PERMANENTLY when a blinker is active. That is they do not blink with the indicators. The original speedo must have some elctronics in it to blink the LEDS. If you want your LEDS to blink with your indicators you will have to use the active wire going to each front blinker. I think it is the Orange/White and the Blue/White wire. Mine are still connected to the Speedo wires and remain on as long as the blinker is on. I have gotten used to this now but will probably change it in the future.
NOTE 3. RESERVE FUEL There is no light assigned for this on the Wireplus. I will be mounting a LED in the top of the ignition switch housing and wiring it from the sensor under the tank. The sensor I believe applies an earth when empty. If you connect it to a spare light in your digital speedo it will be ON untill you hit reserve.
NOTE 4. HSSI SECURITY This little flashing LED also will not have a home on digital speedos so I will also mount another LED on the ignition switch housing and wire it into this. Just have to find the wire under the tank somehow.
NOTE 5. ABS indicator, of no interest to most on the forum but if its easy it will be a third LED in the ignition casing.

Hope this helps somebody out there, it was certainly a pain doing without any information or help from the manufacturers. Just didn't want to destroy a $300 speedo.
Thanks to Senor Gar
also for the excellent wiring diagram, the above images are extracts from it.
