mad kaw I have an Acumen on the 10R and a Digi on the Gix. The Acumen is a lot more reliable. Back it the day when streetbikes had big midrange and widespaced gears it was a no brainer to tell what gear you were in, or when you were in the wrong one. with close ratio boxes and high reving motors they help a lot, particularly when learning a new track. After you get the track wired, it gets more instinctive.

bluedevil I have the Acumen gear indicator and trust me you won't use it on the track. It's just not fast enough and you will be concentrating on alot of other things. I use mine mostly for street and on the hwy to see exactly when I down shift to play with accellaration senarios in certain gears on the hwy and then go back to top gear when cruising because and because the gear ratio's are so close you forget sometimes that you sitting in fifth gear instead of 6th and thats why I won't part with it. It has it's uses, just not the track.

crispin My Point tho is you shouldn't be looking at your gagues while on the track.

I think you might be being too 'technical' for your own good.

If you are concentrating too much on the perfect gear, perfect braking spot, perfect apex you won't develop the 'flow' needed to be fast.

Von - hit the track, relax, do not follow other riders - you will get your grove and be a bad ass racer. Worry too much and you wont be much.

Thats just my 2 cents.

VON - Why do you think you need the gear indacators for?

You do not need to be studing your gauges either on or off the track.

Pay attention to the road / track - listen to the bike

Screaming = shift up

Not Screaming = Shift down

Fuck what the # of the gear is?

Come on your susposed to be a hard core fucker.

What are you going to need next? Air pressure monitors? Navigation? DVD Player?

Ride the bitch - she is like the weed - she be speaking to you man.
on the small track i couldnt figure out what gear i was in since 3, 4, and 5 felt the same on lower rpms, but if i was to hi in the gears it didnt have the pull, the larger track was no problem since i work up to 4 gears...the small track 1 to 2 gears...


just want to know, to tell the truth i never did look down, but if i knew i had a gear indicator i would have.


I might be a bad ass in the street, but the track is a different world...im like a newborn baby there :(
