Heal Tech Gear Indicator

Post by Terry D »



I just received the HealTech Gear Indicator GPXT-GPX-H01. I had read a great deal that this item would connect to the red DLC connector under my seat near the Relay Box. But HealTech and the U.S. Distributor both say the model number for my 2005 GL 1800 is what I received. But it does not plug into the DLC.

The beginning instructions say to Remove the seat. And plug it into the Speed Sensor. I have the shop manual but I can not find where it says or how to locate the Speed Sensor Connector. Can anyone help me locate this connector?.


It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.

I found through a lot of research that HealTech-Electronics no longer makes the same model Gear Indicator for the 2005 Goldwing that they made in the past. So, I gave up and bit the bullet for the one they did send me. I had to take off the Top Shelter to get to the Speed Sensor white 3 pin plug. To make sure I had the right one, I put the bike on the Center Stand and started it up in first gear, unplugged the connector. Sure enough the Tach and Speedometer both quit. So, I plugged the H01 harness into that connector, etc. Then I ran the Green wire with black stripe up to the ECM to splice it in to the Yellow Wire with green stripe coming out of the corner of that 22 pin gray connector. I made my own quick disconnect connector to solder to that wire so as to be able to unplug when needed to qet the wire out of the way during filter changes, etc. Took the bike for a spin on a road that is 7 miles long and no traffic and set the Gear Indicator up as instructed. Works like a charm. That newer Gear Position Indicator (GPXT-GPX-H01) has several features that can be changed just by tapping the top of the indicator. For instance you can have it warn you of exceeding a set speed or exceeding a set RPM or warn you to shift, etc. You can even reset it and mount it upside down and still read it as normal. I originally mounted the LED indicator on the front of my right side speaker grill which is great and the default brightness which can be changed was great even in the bright Texas sun. But, this morning I remounted it behind the speaker grill and want to ride and check it out to see which I like better. I'm not too happy with the way it mounts behind the grill because I'm not sure it will stay in place. But, time will tell or I will move it back to the front.
