I just install a flight deck,,I am not happy, the gears dontdisplay properly,,I try adjusting and it feels so sensitive,,even a 1/4 turn either stops the display or is fine but any force on the rubber turns it off,,,I can only imagine when I take out for a ride tomorrow,,,like every bumps is going to mess it up,,, any ideas of what I did wrong,,,the flight deck looks like a great idea but it dont look like is works very well,,,should i break down and have my LBS isntal it for me,,I am a tech and I am pretty sure i did it right!!

Ok, so I am not sure what you are describing (what are you adjusting? What rubber kills the display?) but odds are it isn't installed properly - alot of things could be wrong - the wiring harness might be loose in the shifter body (tighten it down), the ribbon cable might be bent flat and not making good contact with the computer, one of the wires in the harness could have been damaged during installation, etc. - if there is nothing obvious, I would bring it in and get it checked out.
