A few more mods...

Plan on installing this Koso race dash over the break/before round 1.  It is good enough for KTM to use on their moto3 bikes, so it should be good enough for me!
It combines a bunch of features I am looking for into 1 gauge... while the max rpm is a bit high (16,000 rpm!), it does have a nice large shift light that you can see on the upper RHS.  Just below it is a digital temperature gauge, which uses the same hardware I already have with my Koso water temp gauge.  It runs off of a separate 9volt battery, so that will make installation a bit simpler.  The only work will be finding the correct tach lead, but the manual should have the correct information on that.  This works out OK, as the now-redundant water temp gauge from the racebike will be used on the cx500 project I am also working on.  It will be awhile before I get my hands on this, but I have the whole winter to monkey with it!  When I get the new engine on the dyno, I will have some updated information on the peak hp RPM, and set the shift light accordingly.

When you installed this guage how did you handle the pink wire (speed sensor power)going to the speed sensor? The way I understand it is, power comes from the old stock unit down to the sensor. But how much power?

The only reason I am concerned with the speed sensor is, I plan to use a Bazzaz FI-QS.
