    Package Includes
    1 X Digital Gear Indicator (RED Colour Display)

    Digital gear indicator features:
    Shows current gear number Indicates current gear from 1 to max of 8. as well as a neutral indicator. Auto programming compatible with all motorbikes, four wheelers, bikes etc. will fit anything with a shift lever. Red illuminated display will automatically dim at night. Detects the current gear faster than other gear indicators that use speedometer/tachometer signal. Display can be mounted anywhere

    HOW IT WORKS?
    A small magnet mounted on the gear shift lever moves past the upshift and downshift sensor as shifts occur. The shift signals are then sent to the display, where the current gear number is shown.

    WHY DO I NEED GEAR INDICATOR?
    How many times do you find yourself trying to upshift on the highway just to find out that you are already in the top gear, or try to downshift only to find out you are already in first gear? How often do you get asked what gear you were in around a tight corner? These are just a few examples of the usefulness of this gear indicator.

    Installation guide:
    Black cable is for -
    Red cable is for +
    White cable is for neutral (0)
    Yellow cable is for the first sensor cable1,
    green cable is for the 2nd sensor cable 1
    Blue is for the other cables of sensor 1 and 2 together.

    You can also get them on eBay for under Au$10 from China etc but I have seen some posts warning about some of them. I have had a couple of the cheapies for years but have not bothered to fit or try one yet but will research more before I ever do try them cheapies.
