The only help I can offer is to push and hold the learn button until the display blinks (in neutral) then ride the bike from 1st to 6th gear.

Hi, my name is Sander, I'm from the Netherlands so please excuse my rusty English.

I own an DL1000 and have put a smaller sprocket to smoothen out the rough riding at low speeds. But, you've guessed it, this messed up my speedo.

I've made on DIY style before, this works flawlesly on my car, but makes my speedo on the bike go beserk..

I now on my mobile, so haven't looked at the schematics, but will this work one on one with my V-Strom?

If not, what alterations do I need to make?
I can program my own PIC, even have the specified one laying arround. So a little help would be nice :)

Thank you in advance.
With regards,


Sander.

found this old tread and tried to contact the original poster and even PM'd a few members about who even logged in very recent but no response. even the email address in this tread wont work anymore.. sigh.. just need the software/code.. the rest I can do myself...

Have no prob making the electronics and I know this alike unit is ready build available in stores for 50 bucks or so but am just more into the hobby circuit myself too than to drop cash for a done unit..

So maybe no luck but if any has a bit info or can email me the software they got send in the past let me know.. Appreciated!

I removed mine last night and need to rework my harness so it sees neutral the starter won't turn now, I have your address and you may have my unit (i may ask you tp P.P. shipping);) and the box where the plans are has so many receipts in it from the build I need to keep looking for the plans.
Pat Fruth is an awesome dude !!!

Hello people, my name is Alfredo from Argentina. It is the first time that I write and I want to tell that in March 2010 I installed the gear indicator on a Kawasaki Ninja 600R (GPX600). I have this bike since December 1998 and decided to build a complete digital dashboard 11 years ago. In the case of the gear indicator I used the design of Pat Fruth. For the old Ninja 600 I had to adjust the pre-scaler to adapt it to the speed sensor that I installed because provides 6 pulses per wheel rotation a very low count, that is, 1 pulse every 60 degrees. Below 18 km per hour the gear indicator does not detect the gear in use due the very low count of pulses, so it decided to show a letter E and in the case of disengaged clutch shows the upper and lower segments to graph as been the clutch plates separates. I twice the clock oscillator frequency to 8Mhz for a faster response. I used high intensity 7-segment red displays for the dashboard. It is visible in the daytime but at direct sunlight it is difficult to see, a common problem of led displays, its better a LCD trans-reflective used on todays digital dashboards. The 128x64 blue LCD and upper LCD are trans-reflective meaning that in direct sunlight is visible. Anyway I`m very happy with this digital dashboard that has been working on the Ninja 600 for more than 11 years without issues. The last thing that I installed is an MPU6050 accelerometer on the top to measure the inclination when turning and the inertia in acceleration and braking.

Here the videos, sorry about my accent in english ->
And here how it looks at night ->
In this video I`m testing the accelerometer response ->

I need to improve in the accelerometer the lean angle calculation there are issues to correct.

A lot of thanks to Pat Fruth for the technical information in the GPI open project. The gear indicator in a home built digital dashboard was successfully installed!!!
