Thumbs up Gear Indicators

Hi Guys,

Can anyone recommend a good Gear Indication device system that works well with the 900?

Gear Indicators

Thanks Guys,

There's no doubt that the Dakota Digital is a nice looking piece of kit but I can't find one on sale over here in the UK. The price of shipping from the US and the exchange rate would make it hideously expensive.

BTW does anyone know where on the VN900 you can pick up the Tacho Pulse required for most of these indicators. Maybe from the Speed Sensor or from one of the million or so wires sproutiing from the ECU????

Regards

HoraceG

gear indicator

I use the GiPro ds-k01. Works when you let out on the clutch. Installation is to an already existing plug behind the right access panel. Only problem is when you shift down through several gears without letting out on the clutch. When you let out on the clutch it will correct itself. It is digital and it works for me.

I put a Baron Tach on Eljay and that is accurate. You just need to have a clue as to what does what at what speed.
