Acumen vs healtech



In my search for a gear indicator it seems that these are the two to be had. But which one? They are both plug and play (correct me if I'm wrong). I think the acumen has a little lag, not sure about the healtech.

So which one is best and easiest to install?

Also where's the best place to get one?

Re: Acumen vs healtech

I only have experience with Accumen, and it was a breeze to install. If you can get the tank lifted, the install is halfway done

The lag you talk about is only when down shifting. It will not know what gear it is in till the clutch is released. If you blip the throttle and dump the clutch, then, it'll know immediately. If you release the clutch slow, then it'll get confused.

Re: Acumen vs healtech

HealTech here, install and programming was a breeze. Install: lift tank, plug GI harness into OEM harness and tap two wires, done. Program: get bike on stands and go through the gears as per instructions. I've only ridden it around the block cause I had no fairings or slip-on on due to waiting parts for my track build, but everything worked as advertised.

What if you hold the clutch while dropping three gears and then dump the clutch?

I've dropped 2 gears, blipped and dumped clutch, recovers the correct gear in less than couple seconds, but expect a small delay.

Doc-Ram - Thanks. Saw your older post on the Acumen.

AGG: I thought you bought a Healtech from a member?

Does the acumen also require tapping into wires? I suck with anything electrical haha.

The wiring loom comes specific for llamaja's. No need for tapping or splicing. I've had mine since my last 08, just transferred to current one when i sold previous one.
Only issue I had was the top sticky plate on it. Accumen sent 4 replacements, now thats good service
