 Gear indicator

PostSubject: Gear indicator   Tue Apr 05, 2016 10:25 am

Has anyone installed a gear indicator on their WR? I have one on my 650DL and like it and feel it would be a great add-on for the WR I have coming. Thanks ahead

Someone on here did a write up about the 12 o clock lab`s one, seemed to work pretty well.

I have one.  Installation is pretty straightforward, as it clips inline into the factory wiring harness.  It does require an additional tap into an ignition-powered wire.  The 12 O'Clock Labs kit comes with everything you need, including directions.

It requires one-time programming via an auto-learn function.  Basically you have to run the bike through all gears at a fairly steady RPM so it knows how to map RPM to speedometer sensor pulses to display the right gear.  Because it requires input from both speedo and tach it only displays the correct gear when the bike is moving.  When you come to a stop it displays "--".

I find it most useful an occasional reference, usually in the middle gears.  For example: When I'm trail riding and approaching a tight or steep section I want to know what gear I'm in so I can plan ahead to shift through the coming terrain.  It's certainly more of a convenient indulgence rather than a necessity, but it's lightweight and I'm at the point in my life where I can enjoy a few indulgences like this

Only problem I've had with mine so far was the double-sided sticky tape not surviving the gnarly enduro from this past weekend. Installation was easy-peasy and operation has been flawless so far.

I have one from Healtech on mt 650DL and love it.  I was wondering anyone used this on the WR.

For those running a Power Commander V, do NOT tap into the orange wire coming from the ECU for the Gear Indicator. If you do, the two devices will conflict and the motor will cut in and out while operating. You need to tap into the hot wire coming directly off the coil.

Don't ask me how I know . . . budah
