For UK riders, I can resolve the problem with ODO correction.
Provided you send evidence (such as a copy of last MOT showing mileage) then I can correct the ODO of a new gauge for £50 including return delivery (by insured next day special delivery).

This is quite a technical process and involves re-programming one of the speedo chips.

Also, for reference, this becomes a legal liability in California.. bluegauges.com won't change out the mileage for a gauge that's not an identical replacement to the one it's replacing, and they want full paperwork on the deal.. which I didn't understand, till he said that even INCREASING the mileage is an issue for California, where you have to have greater than a certain mileage on your odo, to get insurance coverage or exemption from somethingorother.. I sort of tuned out after the guy basically said, "no I won't do it."

There might be others, but they generally want $100+, and you have to ship them the gauge, which means no riding..

Personally, I didn't see the value - I took photos of the old speedo showing the mileage, with my watch in the picture (shows date/time), and then 45 seconds later, the new gauge with its different mileage, my watch again in the picture.. identifies to anyone what I've done, the ACTUAL mileage can be calculated, and I have a printout of both photos in my files for reference if I have to show what I did.. odds are I'll keep this bike for a good long time, though.

Well I've bought the hardware off of Extr400 and a set of 07/08 Clocks off eBay for my J1. I expect to get a issue or two as its not originally designed for the J series but ill figure it out and post the results for you all.

Please keep in mind your temp sensor will NOT work with the new gauges. Im not sure if this will effect the fan switching on/off but you wont be able to see what your temp is. BE CAREFUL and good luck!!

I think the fan has its own sensor on the radiator. I was aware of the temp gauge problem and will buy a 07/08 sensor and make it work somehow.

Thanks for the heads up though. Will post up my findings.

Question for the masses, is the 03 temp sensor the same as the 07?

Hi folks,
All current adapter orders are posted.
I have only a couple left now from my last build. I'm away on a winter trip for two months from New Year, so nothing is going out until March 2013.

If anyone is hankering after doing the mod then decide now or wait until the spring.

Adapters are being shipped again.
They are NOT compatible with the new ZX636 2013 bike clocks as these have a new connector pinout and use CANBUS (same as cars). Use only clocks from 2007 to 2012 bikes.

Helping Crazy1 with his project and it seems a 10K resistor between the fuel reserve signal of the ZX6R (new) clocks and ground will disable the flashing fuel light.
This is only used if you have a bike with a reserve switch and no fuel level sensor!

Looking at ZX6-2000 connector pins on the adapter:

-1-2--____---8-
. . . . . . . .
/ <- fit a 10K resistor between pin 2 & pin 9
. . . . . . . .
-9-------------16-

extr400, thanks again for your help on this. Ive just worked out what the numbers, dots and dashes are above..lol..

Would it be best to fit the resistor to the wires between the J plug and the adapter or the plug pins on the J end of the adapter?

Wherever you can get the best access, just go for it.

Im going to throw a spanner in the works now as i plugged it in the other day to show a forum member who came over to see how the project was coming along and to pick up some j bits i promised him and the fuel light and fuel warning did not come on, i think two wires on the J model end of the connector touched together as i had the shrink cover slid up the wires exposing the connection pins on the back of the plug. Just to note i am am extremely happy with this adapter and everything works perfectly including the gear indicator, i have it set on the B1H setting with standard gearing as my bike is standard gearing too and it works seamlesly. Superb piece of kit.

I will figure out how i have managed to turn out the fuel warning tomorow without the resistor and let you know.
