New Product Alert! PZRacing Gear Indicators!
I stand corrected. But I didn't look too much into it because it didn't seem to have a lot of history.

Seemed to be the case when I bought mine. Bought from STG and they had to order it direct so it took a little longer than expected. I was in the same predicament when I was looking for a gear indicator, think it was the lag with Acumen that turned me towards the GIPro. Here's mine, mounted there temporarily but might just keep it at that location.

Re: Acumen vs healtech

Looks awesome easbay the gipro is great except te splicing during the install haha. I'll probably just go with the blue display.

Judy curious how long did it take for you to receive it?

It took about a week later than expected. I ordered some stuff from Rider's Discount and since that order was already placed, I just ordered the GIPro from SportbikeTrackGear. My RD order made it before my trackday and the STG order made it the day after my trackday.

There's actually no splicing, you just tap two wires and the wire taps are provided. Posi-taps would work to and would probably be easier for the install.

Maybe because


1) That guy is on my [surprisingly long] list of fcking tool bags to which I will never give my money

2) That unit is ugly as sin

3) That unit is HUUUUUGE

4) There are better designed and better looking cheaper alternatives available that aren't sold by a sleezy shit-bag (see #1).




Any other questions?


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Acumen vs healtech

Yikes Pickpocket...I won't even ask...haha

Anybody have a pic of a blue acumen on our bikes? I want to see if it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Doc - I might take your suggestion and put a red film over it if it's really bad. I would order the one from UK but I've got a TD in 2 weeks and I don't think it'll get here on time.

It's a similar relationship, yes.
