Gen 3 gauges on gen 1

Has anyone had any success putting the gen cluster on their gen 1 and getting the factory gear indicator to work ? I know the differences how the gen 1 needs the speed sensor to have a supplied voltage and the 7.3 or 7.8x difference in speed pulse rates. Anyone willing to build an adapter for me ? I can build an adapter harness but that's it lol.

I don't think you done your research the Speed pulses need to be in the Hundreds in % like 700+ to get the speedometer right with a speedohealer or equivalent that can change pules that high, and since a Gen 3 bike I believe runs off the same signal input as the FI line(communication) it's not possible on a Gen 1 bike the FI meaning any communication from the ECU not just voltage inputs, it's not possible so hence the Gear Indicator would not work as well....you will need to buy Aftermarket Gear Indicators.

OEM gear indicator is working without factory communication line just fine.

I stand corrected I personally never investigated how the Gen 3 gauge works I assumed it was off the communication line, another reason I never investigated is because I made my own it's so fast, bright and Small much better than GiPro and Acumen

I had done it to my 1st gen.
Gear indicator didnt work for me (never really tried to make it work).

The way i did was following a thread in the "How to Section"
This is a 5ish year old video of it working https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNNRYBY6ahM

"The ZX-10R is capable of being perfectly docile and tractable, but few men are capable of resisting its ever-present voice urging them to just twist it and see what happens."

I saw you post something on facebook about this a day or two ago too.
Think it'll work for the Gen2? I'd love to have a integrated gear indicator on the tach

On a gen2 you won't need an adapter harness. Just swap a gen3 cluster in ( it's identical to a gen2 cluster) and put a gear indicator controller on and that's it.

Ah there it is!!! now that is not plug and play is it I like that you made something work but there is always a secret with you to get the full results and details.

Anyway for the OP you still need a Speedohealer and now apparently some Gear Indicator Controller that only Thundercoupe knows about but wont share.
