The thought on those was if you kept the ECU thinking it was in one gear all the time, then it would bypass restrictions and make it faster. Or so the story goes.


Yeah, we'll wait to see if the OP responds and we'll diagnose it from that point based on more information.
If the gps signal fails, the ecu sets it to 6th gear. The bike will still run fine.

michael4012 I get your thinking Skydork, as ever your methodical and express excellent English 😁 I'm thinking that if the gear switch - indicator is broken on the drum itself or in between that and ecu the bike will be running like shit, as the ecu doesn't know what gear it's in, 2000iri hasn't said what it runs like admittedly.

It's unlikely but possible.

All true! Except that the neutral switch to activate the green light is a separate input to the cluster. The input comes into the cluster differently than the gear selection. So just because one works and the other doesn't is not a direct indication. The FI code sort of is the same thing. If the switch hasn't failed, no FI code is generated, but that doesn't mean the switch is working. The FI code mean the switch has failed completely, not that is may or may not be indicating correctly. If the switch is powered on and not sensing what gear is selected, no FI light and no gear indication. Just gotta troubleshoot some more to figure out what the real issue is.

SkyDork Welcome to the party!

The Gen 3 has a gear indicator. It says "GEAR" to the right of the speed. It shows nothing in neutral. So either the cluster is bad, the gear sensor is bad, or you're trying to look at it in neutral.

Gear indicator

I know it's an old topic and I have read many posts about it, but I couldn't find a solution.

I just bought 2009 zx10r, and it seems to lack the gear indicator totally. Even though all the video's I checked earlier has one beside the speed. Is it on some versions ? Or something to activate
