Got one of these for the same reason, although mine is the red coloured version, which works well even in bright sunlight.

My green one is sitting on my desk waiting for my garage to get warm enough. What was the effort like to put it on ? Where did you run the line?

Lifted the tank, followed a decent route, under the seats, and on to the ECU scanner clip. Once you have things up and open, your route will likely be similar.

This was my bike Today. You can have an idea how to route the wiring.
Awesome bro, Just a Tadd extreme. Only the tank and seats need be taken off for this healer.Tank, only Lifted up. I Know you are just displaying route areas. I just wanted to make that clear, before someone tries to strip their Plastics to do this install.
Super Appreciate the View. Mahalo for the pics

I put a red one on yesterday and didn't need to lift the tank at all. Infact the only thing I took off fully was the seat. I took the one screw out of the black side plastic and the middle screw out of the side fairing. Pulled them both back at the top far enough to route the cable along the frame and up to the left side of the dash. There was enough room to route it under the rear of the tank just by pulling the black rubber protector off a few inches. Easiest thing I've installed so far. Only complaint is you need to let the clutch out for it to work, so when down shifting to stop it will say 3rd until you actually pull out again and it will switch to 1st.

Any chance you could show some pics on how you routed it? I'm installing mine next week and would love to not tear the bike apart! Thanks!

I just did mine.

Take off seats.

Loosen the next fairing down.

Remove the 2 front tank bolts.

I ran my along/under the fairing seam and the tank up through the driver side and next to the tach. Just a little bit of wedging and nudging. I used the nylon tie up near the front (loosely). turn the bars to make sure you have no impacts and bolt it back together.

So for anyone that has them: did you need to do a custom learn on a 2014 ? I noticed mine ignores 4th gear. It is somewhat disappointing atm. Also many people have said you need to get the red for bright daylight. This is incorrect, the green is very bright in direct sunlight as well.

Cheers

No custom relearn needed here, mine worked right out of the box. Only issue I had was with coming to a stop and skipping down gears. I only ordered red becuase I didn't realize they made other colors, but it worked well on yesterdays ride, the color doesn't really matter to me anyway.

I emailed support. They will probably tell me to do the custom programming.

With the stock Gears it worked fine. When I went up a tooth on the front it went 1-2-3-5-6. That Bothered me.
So I did the Manual Program. Very Straight Forward.
Neutral now shows as a Line. This may be because I never Paused from 1st to Second. Wasnt an issue. But i will maybe tomorrow reprogram it, Pausing .....and report if I got the N Back. Im Fine with the (-) but A (N) I guess works cooler. Programing is a breeze...On and off the key a few times and go through the gears. Dont be afraid to tweak your bike people. And Yes It can Be routed with nothing off, But I wanted the comfort of knowing things were secure.
However you do it, Its yours......... Turn a Wrench..... Learn the sport.

How picky is the indicator to your shift style?

I was reading about the gi-Pro GI and I saw multiple posts of people saying it wasn't reading correctly...

I understand it not showing the correct gear if you pull in the clutch and change from 6th to 1st without letting the clutch out. It won't read the new gear until you let out the clutch (e.g. moving again).

What I'm curious about is clutchless shifting or shift without a full clutch engagement (just short of clutchless shift). Will it know you shifted and show the correct gear?

I've been kicking around the idea of installing the Gear indicator and/or super slim temp gauge (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0041QMS0E) but if it doesn't read correctly all the time then I might as well not install the shift indicator..

Edit: I did some more reading on the 'net and I found a post on another forum that stated it figures out what gear you are in by doing the speed/rpm calc to display the gear. If that is all it is doing I would assume it to work just fine with clutchless shifts.. Basically, as long as the clutch isn't pulled in, it can do the math and tell you the gear.. Is my assumption correct?

I will let you know after I manually set. It was a bit laggy and not super accurate in default mode.. I am hoping this fixes that. Alot of us our swapping gears for ride quality so hopefully this is the fix.
