Me again!!!! Gear indicator question


Recommended Posts

So yeah gear indicators?

I like the idea of one of these things and I'm still really crap at remembering what gear in in lol

Iv seen some that are plug and play from demon tweeks of their ebay site for around 80 pound.

Any one have any experience with one of these??


and also seen a cheaper one that you wires into the back of the speedo. Alot cheaper


okay I'm ready to be laughed at :)))))

nice gimmick that you will rarely use...

With a digital speedo and digital gear indicator and a quick glimpse, i've actually found myself approaching a stop thinking i was still in 5th gear, when in fact i was in 1st gear but doing 5mph... :oops:

Nah i tend to remember roughly if im ever confused i just change down untill i see that magical green light of neutral and go from there ;)

James, here's your gear indications...


<15 you're in 1st

<25 you're in 2nd

<40 you're in 3rd

<55 you're in 4th

<70 you're in 5th

>70 you're in 6th


Well that's how I do it anyway. Since I no longer have your R6, it now goes:


<34 I'm in 1st

>34 I'm in 2nd.

LOL.


Point is, you don't need it, just go by your engine speed & speedo, besides, no real need to know anyway - just get to know your engine & road speeds and you'll be able to say which gear you're in every time.

Thanks phil yeah I did think that and probably won't even have to use it in time. But it's a gear indicator.... who don't want one lol.

Looks like a cool bit of kit tbh and I do love my gadgets [WINKING FACE]

Whenever I'm coming to a side turn I always knock it down to first before going back up into 2nd, just to be sure. Is this bad?

That's what I do hahah

Rounder bouts and 1st gear scares me hahahah

 

I never knock it into first. I usually drop it into neutral and select gear depending on if i stop or not.
