fitting aftermarket gear indicator
« on: November 12, 2017, 02:57:11 PM »
i read somewere that you cannot fit one of these aftermarket gear indicators to the 1000 versys if you have altered your gearing ..well ive just fitted one onto mine . ive got a smaller rear sprocket on and works a treat . very easy fit plug & play with only a slight "lag" of about half a second between gears , not really a problem and a hell of a lot cheaper than the one from kawasaki.

I fitted the GiPro to mine, here's the link;

By the way, they all have a slight lag, but nothing to detract from the indicator.
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

You can program the GiPro if you have changed the gearing, look up their website and you'll find the instructions.

UPDATE ...i have recently bought a genuine kawasaki gear indicator for a song  :002: and replaced the copy one so just a few observations ...first the genuine is an absolute  :125: to fit ..the electrical socket it fits into is just infront of the radiator top up tank under the fairing so lots of bits to take off ..the the copy [ from IDEA ] takes 10 minutes to fit & plugs straight into electrical socket next to the battery ...the genuine one is more accurate as in the copy one sometimes gets a bit confused [ but nothing you couldnt live with ] and lastly the genuine one is very bright , a bit off putting at night ..so to sum it up ..if you dont want to spend a fortune on the genuine kawasaki one , the  copy is a good choice . this is only my opinion ..hope this helps ..

I've been running the GIPro on my Gold Wing for years.  Added one to my V1000 a couple of months ago.  As both doboy and longdog said, there is a bit of a lag.  But it has worked like a charm on the GW, and seems to be working just fine on the Versys.
