Gipro Gear Indicator

Has anyone fitted a Gipro gear indicator? It connect via the diagnostic port and I was wondering if anyone on the forum had any experience with one.

Hi

I have just fitted Gipro indicator. It was easy to fit. I did not pick up the switched power supply from the fuse block as suggested but from another wire I had previously installed. The wiring "loom" was long enough to reach the diagnostic port but the wire for the switched supply could have been a bit longer.

If this works the link should show the indicator in neutral

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1i...ew?usp=sharing

This link should show the diagnostic port.

So far in use it has saved me going for 7th gear a couple of times!

I'm just admiring those adjustable front forks!

Been wanting to install a GIPro for a while. Some of the purists will argue it's not necessary but the way I ride, I want optimum launches at certain speeds and need to know what gear I'm in right now. It's much harder to tell with twins than I-4's, in my opinion. The rpm spread can be so small between lower gears on this bike.

I also have a Mupo rear shock.

Given the close nature of the ratios knowing which gear you are in can help when making snap decisions on overtaking. It also stops me hunting for 7th!
