Looking at the 08 manual it looks like this is a GO......Direct and Identical signals plus connector for both the 2nd Gen. and 3rd Gen 10Rs :thumbsup:

But will the gear indicator work on a 2nd gen? If not I see no gain?

It should, it must work with tach and speed like an Acumen Gear Indicator. The only other signal that can make it happen is the ECU communication line but that is mostly for the Immobilizer and F1 indications.

hmm someone fork over the $$$ & try it :mrgreen:... it would be nice to have an integrated gear indicator

Well, we all ready have members that can try because they own both bikes, Jimmy Jam is one of them but I don't think he wants to try :dontknow: I'm confused because he says he is an Engineer as reported in another Thread on what's safe to jump start a bike from a Car Battery and gave all the Ohms law facts and how it's no problem etc. etc. :lol:

Let's see if he is willing to try now :wink:

:popcorn:

Well, I think most won't do it for the Gear Indicator anyway. It seems they just like the better face plate with the Big Numbers on the high end of the Tach and Green Colors on the Tach.

As some of you know I made my own Gear Indicator and no OEM unit is going to be better :headshake ....and to add some might not know but I run a 2nd Gen cluster on my 1st Gen bike(loose the f1 indication though) but if it had the bar graph fuel on this cluster I would be looking for a new Cluster right away but sadly it's no different than the 2nd Gens cluster other than the face plate and Gear Indicator so not a priority for me just giving out info. for those that are interested and hopefully someone in the future tries it but it may be awhile so put your :popcorn: away it most likely will spoil :wink:
