Thumbs up gear indicator

Hi fermic37
But The instructions you sent to me, looks soooo difficult to understand.I ve no idea what the speed sensor and all other terms that are on the page.
W.out photo I can never install this gear indicator.

But anyway thanks for your replay.

Might be best to have a shop go it honestly. As you have to splice into your harness.

Wow. I had no idea anyone had those so early. The first "fancy" instrumentation I recall was on the Honda Sabre. Had that LCD display with gear, clock, temp and clock!

I believe my 73 GT550 or a 72 water buffalo? ware the first bikes with gear indicators, it became a Suzuki trademark. GT then GS bikes.
First bike I had with key on dash too. First bike I owned with disc brake. 71 CL350 used drum. Not sure whem CB750 or CB350 got Disc?

Dash from a 82 GS1100. The center window is the gear position. Also came equipped with a very sophisticated turn signal canceler.

Gen 1 bars by the way.

My 2 cents is to leave the gear indicator off the bike for now.

I have one I installed years ago, and yes I like it.

But it required cutting into the wiring harness behind the instrument cluster, soldering, and took a little bit of creativity on mounting it.

At this point, just take a victory lap for putting your carbs back in and enjoy the bike. As you don't have the instructions, I just don't want you to accidentally fry the electronics.

My '79 GS550 has a gear indicator for all 6 gears. It has a switch under the chain cover that has 7 wires coming out of it. Theres a bracket mounted to the shifter shaft that moves the mechanism. Gets lubricated from all the chain sling-off. Never had a bike with gear indicators until I bought that old beater to fix up....

It's got a different indicator block for each gear (6 separate numbers). Still, gets the job done.
