Re: Wanting A New Speedo.. (Monstaman)

I have one on my 800 Monster and I love it. I have the one with oil temp though as I dont need the speedo function on the track.

Re: Wanting A New Speedo.. (Ducman851)

Cool, was it easy to fit etc and the burning question is it reliable?

hey guys, I'm just guessing here and it may be redundant, but I bet he shifts when the needle is close to straight up!

Thank you Marvin, its far easier to note the when the needle is straight up its about time to shift, sometimes seeing the shift lights in bright sunlight is tough.



Its actually an old racing trick, the gauges get oriented so that when every system is ok all the needles will point straight up, that allows the driver to scan the gauges in the car at speed. All he would have to do is note that all the needles pointed up, if not then he can take an extended look at that particular gauge

Re:

Yup, that is what we do in a helicopter too, we set our gauges so that all the needles point the same direction when all system are working good, (temp, torque, rpm, oil…) It work really good, makes system checking (scanning) a walk in the park.

No, project bike, would need some dimensions to confirm that it would fit too if you decide you are interested..

Just lemme know, no rush.

Re: Wanting A New Speedo.. (Monstaman)

Ducman851 is good people. Monstaman is good people too. Hopefully we can land a love connection here for a top clamp. Hint to Monstaman....Cocoa puffs. Send Cocoa Puffs. Ducman851 knows what I am talking about.

Does anybody else use their ears to know when to shift?

On the road I use the tach more entering a corner to know how far down I want to shift, but rarely while accelerating.
On the track I don't use it too much either. Sometimes, if I get a little excited I might ping off the rev limiter, but that's a pretty good indicator it's time to shift.

Re: (Mental998)

With the custom earplugs I have Layne I find myself overreving sometimes. So i just use the tach and shiftlights.
