Congrats. We run the same set system but have been leaving the display off. We still get all the same data but its not displayed while we ride. We just pull the card when were done and download it to the laptop. If your a LSTD customer email tim@racepak.com and see if he cuts you a better deal.

Gabe,

Send me some of your data with your slow lap times (not the quick ones) please.

Aghamurtaza87@hotmail.com

Specially some TWS (Texas World Speedway) laps running mid 1:50s.

Woo hoo, nice! I just added a wide band O2 to my G2X. Should be interesting.

What does that do?

Also do you if the dash is a plug in/play system where I just unplug my current stock odometer and plug this one in... or are we doing some splicing and dicing of the wires?

The O2 sensor will give me air/fuel ratios as I ride and allow me to retrieve it, just like any of the other data from the G2X. Very handy.

I have kept both the display and my stock gixxer gauge cluster. If you wanted to switch the stock gauge cluster out, getting the speed is a non-issue, it's virtually automatic due to the gps sensor. For the tach, however, you need to tap the tach wire from the wiring harness somewhere. I used a service manual to find mine from right at the ECU wiring plug. I believe Gabe pulled tach from his gauge cluster somewhere. Once you have a tach, you can program the dash to light up the lights at specific RPMs.

Did you buy any additional sensors?

BTW, be aware that if you wire the G2x to turn off with the ignition switch, that you wait for the system to finish writing before turning off the bike. I think I set mine to continue to write for 30 seconds after the bike stops. Before I went to TWS (Texas World Speedway) last time, I changed the wiring so that system would shut off with the key. When I returned to the pits, I was shutting the bike off right away and, as a result, I failed to get about 3 or 4 sessions of data.

I updated the wiring and now power to the G2X is controlled by a switch and it's wired directly from the battery.

No I told Tim, I want to first understand the unit and be able to use atleast 50% of its capabilities and then start adding sensors as we go.

The bike its going on has stock suspension right now, so priorities are towards the suspension first.

So If I understand this correctly, I can have this unit running all by itself mounted somewhere near the tach and use both at the same time? How is that affecting the battery?

I can't wait till the weekend, to put this on and test it out around the block.

Also, the red G2X's seem to be more sensitive about antenna placement. You need to locate it away from the G2X box and away from any heavy electrical interference. My antenna is now located on the front fairing.

I'll keep that in mind.

Thanks Curt - your one of the driving forces why got this system over the others.

The current draw is minimal. All last year, I left it on all day at every track event with never a battery issue.

And, yes, you can mount the display near the tach or where ever you can find space. My display is now mounted essentially on top of the upper triple tree.

Did you mention my name to Tim? I just spoke with him a couple of days ago regarding the new video capabilities in the software.
