Gear Indicator for Monster 796 ABS

Dear all,

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.

This is really cool! I'd like to get one of these but my only concern is that will it work if I change my sprocket size? Is there a way to reprogram this?

Yup you can reprogram it.

I have one and it's easy to reprogram.

I was reading the install instructions, it says you have to splice it to the fuse box and plug it to the connector under the seat, but the photos of the unit does not show an extra wire only a single connector. was it just a simple plug in?

It is easy to install, the hard part is routing. The wire they tell you to splice is the one with the heat shrink on it, find the wire at the back of the fuse box, and splice the heat shrinked wire as per instructions. What you plug into under the seat is the Data port(factory) into the connector on the Gear GIPRO. I say route everything before you splice and move the bars to make sure you have the correct clearance without pulling on the wiring, use the provided zap straps to make it look neat!

There are no extraordinary men, just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.

I also installed the GiPro Gear Indicator on my bike. It ran perfectly but after a day or two it stopped working.
Attached a pic of GiPro gear indicator on my bike when it was working properly.

The console shows a "CAN" error and most of the things stop working along with it. It shows LO Battery, Neutral light doesn't work, nor does the bike start
As soon as I remove the Gear Indicator from the diagnostic port (that's where the indicator reads the gears), the bike works properly and everything comes back to the normal

Anybody else face this trouble? If yes do let me know. Any help would be appreciated.

Had contacted GiPro HealTech guys. They suggested following things:
Quote:
1) First, disconnect the 4-pole connector, and check whether all connector
pins are in place, not bent or pushed out of position.
Spray some contact cleaner (e.g. WD40) into the plugs.
Then reconnect, and make sure the connector is locked properly.


2) Relocate the GIpro cable and route on a different path, farther away from
other cables (especially the ignition coil, injector and ECU wires).
Sounds like it's an interference problem so re-routing the cable should
help.
Tried the steps but still the same error. Will give it a try one more time.

My first thought was an earthing problem. But if you have checked all the connections, obviously not.
