Maybe we can use this thread also for tech support/information on the production units?
Finally tested a unit I am so satisfied with and put a stamp on to be mounted on my bike for GOOD AND SELL TO OTHERS!!!!!!
I now have the perfect LED installed (that was my last major hurdle). As you will see in the Videos I found out the Acumen has another fault….IT’S NOT THE BRIGHTEST LED IN DAYLIGHT compared too the one I have now. In the videos it was 76deg..and no clouds(in one video) high noon and sunny. It turns out the Acumen could barely be seen on my video camera as it is cheap and needs major light to record LED diplays or to be seen clearly by the video recorder. Well, turns out my LED display was bright enough to be seen very clearly, as you will see in the videos but the Acumen was barely visible. Also, not once in my ride around town yesterday did the LED get washed out by the SUN (all my original test units did).
So, I installed the unit and took major pictures during the install for future instructions or manuals to send out with the package. Instructions and or pictures for now I can send out in emails but don’t think it will take long for manuals as I have a very high end Laser Printer that is built just for that sort of thing anyway as they will come soon.
Video links: (Tip. If the video is cutting out save it to your Hard Drive.)
Final production test 1:

Package and Final install links:
Some basic information on the package itself:
All necessary wiring that needs to be done is a GROUND TAP, POWER TAP, and ONE WIRE TAP FROM THE ECU INPUTSIDE(PIN 12). PICS INCLUDED AND WIRING DIAGRAMS.
The package- Includes all necessary wiring and splices/attachments to do at least a rear seat/rear tail/side panel install or trunk installs and TAPS.
A front end only installation (everything in the nose area) is also possible but the one wire for the ECU TAP is not included at this time so you will have to route and cut/splice/crimp with your own supplied wire to the GEAR DISPLAY MOLEX CONNECTING WIRE.

Disclaimer: any LED can be washed out by the sun and even Acumen says on their website that they are not responsible if you can't see the display due to the SUN.
Now that all that technical stuff is out I need to mention a few things. lespaul66 I know I said I will let you have one of the first Units for testing a few months ago but everything has changed now as I am not making my own boards anymore and the price list has come up considerable to make a the product. So, I can’t really hand out boxes right now as I need to get some customers as testing has already been done on another zx10r with success.
What I really need right now is for the original 10 boards I have to help finance the next big order for all. I found out I can get a considerable discount for my original prototype board purchase, but it will have to be a big order(50 or more) and that cost money that I am not willing to get into right now until I see how the prototype sales go and how others report back from their evaluations of the product. To make sure there is no favorite call outs here I would like everyone that has been following this project that wants one to email me @ [email protected]
or PM Me to get an Authorization to make a PayPal Payment for an order.
Ps….anyone that still wants the Acumen…mine(the one in the video) is for Sale. $110 shipped via USPS lower 48 states..original box and instructions included along with solderless cable extenstion/loom($40 retail just for the extension).
