Talking 03/04/05/06 ZX636 ZX6R speedo upgrade

Hello ZX6R forum!
I'm extr400 from Kawiforums (and same profile on here now too)
Just wanted to publicise a project that I've had running to use the new style dial gauges (from 2007 bikes onwards) on the 03 to 06 bikes that used the LCD style clocks.

Well the good news is that the project is finished now and thanks to several forum members that have been willing test victims, I now have a plug and play solution to make the upgrade be seamless and easy.

The new style speedo gives you the better looking moving dial tacho and LCD speed readout. Its also much better for track use as its easier to register what a dial gauge is telling you than the LCD tacho graph, on a quick glance.

The trick feature is that the adapter calculates the gear from the difference between the speed and tacho signals and sends an extra digital signal to the new speedo to work the gear readout. This also stops the annoying red FI light from flashing

The engine signals are all a bit different between model years, so the adapter adjusts them to be correct for the new speedo. Essentially this is doing a speedo healer function, so it was logical to allow some extra variation to take account of custom final drive sprocket sizes. There is a Windows PC interface program that talks over USB to set up the adapter.

Since its a community led project I have kept costs as low as possible. Am currently selling them to forum members for US$50 and $10 post (international signed for delivery) - they are made by me in Scotland.

I'm an electronics engineer by trade, so have tried to make it as good as any commercial product.

Have limited numbers available, but can build more on demand. Please PM me if your interested.
Cheers

I don't think it will include the speedo, just the interface.

$60 for a gauge upgrade/speedohealer is amazing. Good stuff man, If I still had my 636 you would have an order, that gauge cluster SUCKED. Got any other projects in the pipeline?

Yea, its just the adapter you get.
But its a plug and play solution without any of the wiring hassle.
And you get all the function of the new speedo, and a speedo healer.
I post the adapter and a USB cable, you can download the PC app from a Google docs link to my account.
The app only works for PC (XP up to current OS), there is no MAC app. (Engineers don't really do MAC).
Payment is by Paypal. You have to PM me your details as I'm not broadcasting them on here for every junk mail bot to pick up....

Hi, would this work on a j model? as it is possible to use 03-04 dials on the 00-02 models although the temp gauge does not work and the fuel light can be bypassed as you probably know.

This should work on a J model, but so far no-one has tried it.
It would be necessary to use the PC app to set the correct gearbox ratios for 1st through 6th gear (which you can easily do in the program). The service manual will have these listed.
You would also probably need to modify the clocks mounting brace on your bike.
If you were to fit the LHS handlebar switch unit from an 03 to 06 bike then you could have the lap timer function too.

Would the interface mess with an existing speedohealer? like if I JUST wanted the plug and play late model clock, would I just not program the speedohealer part?

Oh and BTW, this is AWESOME. I have always wanted the newer clock, but wiring/electrical is not my specialty. Thank you for offering such a sweet product!
