i've just noticed this thread,
I installed a Translogic MD3 dash onto my 2002 [5PW] R1 early this year and I too was concerned about the omission of a low fuel warning light
the top wiring diagram is lifted from the R1 circuit diagram
the bottom wiring diagram was from a post i created on a electronics website, a very helpfull chap created the curcuit diagram for me and I even ordered all the component parts, the cost was pennies, about £15 -and that was for double of everythinhg [just incase I messed up!]
that's were the story ends, it'll be one one my winter projects to create the circuit, it'll be tiny [the size of a matchbox] so it'll be easy to place behind ont the side panels
Thanks Paul and welcome to the forum if you haven't been formally introduced already!
The info you provided deemed to be highly valuable until I received my version of the TL dash... Which didn't include a low fuel wire, but a mileage countdown
My 'LOW FUEL' indicator comes on when I'm down to the final 30 miles on the trip meter, which is about when my OEM low fuel light would come on
Thanks for the demo, it looks incredible, however that was a demo of the display, which has capability of gear indicator, but I can't find any details of gear position indication on any R1's prior to 09 years, does anyone have a digital gear indiator like, Datatool, GiPro, etc.? I've not heard anyone state how they work?
Hmmm... Not quite 100% sure of the question you're asking, however, the TL dash not only "displays
" the gear indicator, but it has one built in, as the dash does not use the OEM gear indicator on the 09+ models. The Translogic gear indicator is programmed when you calibrate the dash initially (you will need to calibrate RPM's, MPH, and gear position) So if your bike doesn't have one, it does once you install the Translogic Dash
Here are some shots of my install... (
OEM Dash removed
Posi-Taps into OEM Dash Harness
OEM Speed Sensor Posi-Taps
Engine Temp Sensor
Yes, you will pull more than the tank
TL Dash installed...
