Thereís no comparison. Buy once, cry once...I promised myself never to cheap out on this bike. Itís just not fair to the machine Kawasaki built for us.

"Buy once, cry once" ain't that the truth, mate! Or like someone said, "only a rich man buys cheap tools"

MotoD next works great for me. I have the full kit ecu integration on my gen 4. 50hz is really nice. Track coverage is really good. Survived nasty high side with front end impact. touch screen doesn't touch properly anymore and needs replacement ($100 warranty replacement) but otherwise still functions perfectly.

Software isn't that great compared to software like circuit tools but it works.

I wouldn't mind comparing to the solodl but i'm not gonna buy both ;)

A buddy of mine bought a MotoD Star timer. He used it three times and now it won't turn on unless it's plugged in. It was never crashed or even dropped. He's very bummed out about it. Granted, all timers have their issues so I am not trying to put MotoD down, as I am reasonably sure this issue is not common. MotoD offered to repair it, I presume for free. My other racer buddy's AiM Solo unit wouldn't register any satellites from time to time and that was a point of frustration. I personally run a Solo DL and it's been nothing but reliable for me. I prefer it because I really like the "predicted lap times" feature, AiM Race Studio software is very powerful--especially since I collect the ECU data. I also like the way it mounts with the powerful magnetic attachment and mounting plate. I bought a couple of extra back plates and put them on other bikes so I can just seamlessly move the timer around.

I'll submit for your consideration....



This actually came off my previous bike, I've just recently adapted it to fit the Kawi.

I've been racing WERA SE on my 2009 R6. I have been debating going back to a ZX10R. I was at the June 2nd/3rd Road Atlanta.
