Riding down the road, don't you often wonder what-the-heck gear you're in? It's especially true with today's high revving, close geared multis like GSXRs and R1/R6s

The Acumen Digital Gear Indicatorr (DG8) is suitable for use on motorcycles equipped with an electronic speedometer and electric rev counter (that is bikes that DO NOT have rotating-core cables). The DG8 system relates the electronic pulses between the two inputs, and once installed and setup, indicates the gear ratio of your bike.

There is a different version (DG8-C) for cable drive Speedos like Ducati's, and many older sportbikes. (You still need to have an Electronic Tacho.)

Both versions come in Red or Blue Display.

INSTALLING? Stop Press - We now have Plug-In Solutions for many sportbikes - so there is no hunting for wires, soldering etc

The DG8 comes with installation instructions for the most popular sportbikes, with color codes for the 5 wires you have to connect: power, ground, neutral light, speedo and tacho pulse.

If your bike has an electronic speedo and electronic tach, DG8 will work as long as you locate the right wires: check your owner's manual for your wire colors.

Once connected, you have to put the DG8 into a programming mode to teach it the gears for your bike. This is much like programming a remote control for a TV!

The new DG8 has advanced electronics that allow it to be programmed much easier than the Datatool DiGi; users will also find the instructions provided makes installation and programming easy to follow.

Installation & Programming

Most people seem to be able to fit their DG8 in an hour or so, but if you have problems with wiring, it could be best to ask a friend or your dealer to install it.
