Gear Indicator for Monster 796 ABS
I've bougth and installed the latest Gipro gear indicator.
Their latest version (GPDS-D02) is also applicable for the ABS versions of the latest Monster generation and is a simple plug and play version (it hooks up on the service plug under the seat for its' data).
Norbert from Healtech (manufacturer) was very helpfull explaining how it works (a very detailed manual with pics was included).
It works impeccable and is small and is of a superb quality and finish.
Only small minor point: due to the fact that the ducati has no gear sensor mounted in the gearbox the Gipro calculates the gear (using engine RPM and wheel RPM from the speed/ABS sensor), this means that it can not calculate the gear once the clutch is disengaged because then it can not recognize the ratio.
So only with the clutch engaged (normal driving) it shows which gear it is in.
