Gear Indicator
« on: 15 April, 2020, 08:14:29 PM »
Hi All,

I hope you are all keeping well on "lockdown"

Has anyone fitted a Gear Indicator? If so, what make is best?

I don't necessarily need one, but I think they look cool!!!!

Thanks

Hi Toon, as you say I also hope all is well with everyone in these strange times.
Lots of info on the forum as I have searched ‘gear indicator ‘myself.
Some question if cheap ones are the same as expensive, you wouldn’t think so, but I couldn’t find anyone calling the cheap ones, so I have ordered one for £24 on eBay. It doesn’t arrive until the end of May. They all seem to be plug and play, just got to get the wires from front to under the seat on a MK 1, or under the tank on a MK 2, and decide where you want to mount the display.
Some riders question why you would need one, I haven’t had one on any previous bikes, but thought I would give it a go.
Not a lot of help to your question, others will no doubt know more. In the meantime hit the search button at the top of the screen if not already done.

Incorrigible.... Mounted in the right place it will be a glance when checking revs speed etc.,

Bleached your exhausts lately??  :008: :008: :008: :008:

Hope you are well!!

I will.
Also ordered a single LED voltage display from Gammatronix. The company have a very good reputation it seems. That is due around Saturday. Will also comment about that.

PZRacing GearTronic Zero Gear Indicator Suitable for Honda CBF1000 F10 2010

just fitted one of these to my mk2.  £73 the backlight colour is changeable and it
works well. It needs setting up but it is easy to do .
