2 things; The backside of the gear indicator has no locking system to attach it to the back side of your dash, and if you do the 16 tooth gear change ( which I highly recommend) your gear indicator will no longer function correctly.  :012:

Thanks Mike... I am still dwelling to add or not a Gear Indicator. Not a big deal for me.
Regarding the 16 tooth sprocket, I have no intentions to do it ... I have another near perfect bike for the longer trips... my C14 /GTR1400.  I used to have a 07 Tuono where I went from 16 to 15 tooth sprocket.

Hi,

Take a look at this, it may help. I fitted one earlier this year and don't regret it. It works well and reliable so far :152:

It has sticky tape on the outer ring...it stick to the dash after you install it..I have one and its been fine for several months through all sorts of weather...

I assume going down 2 teeth to a 41 on the back sprocket also changes things enough to wack out the gear indicator?

If I understand it correctly, the OEM gear indicator has the same issues with non-standard sprockets?  So that would leave the GIPro DS from HealTech as the only option because it can be "taught" the new gearing setup. Unfortunately, it's even more money than the OEM GI!
