Re: How to Make Your Own Digital Gear Indicator

thought about heat, but the gizmo is full of diodes, resistors all crammed in, I think the glued bits are the best idea, used abs glue, did it before bedtime, next day it was solid.

GL1500 seat rain cover

Question for wing admin, when you placed ECU protection diodes for the gear indicator, did you do something like this, I bought a cheap 7 seg indicator unit on ebay made for this purpose, each wire from it that's not grounded reads 12.5 volts that will reverse bias the diodes, when a gear is selecte...

So your riding and down comes the rain, so as not to get the radio soaked you put the radio cover on, further along the road, music is too loud or not loud enough, do you stop, remove the cover and adjust the volume, or turn it off (not an option), if only there was a volume knob on the outside of t...
