R1 5PW Gear shift indicator

Hi all,

has anyone used these gear indicators? do they work well? is there any sensor on the 5PW that says what gear it is actually in?

Thanks in advance

Got a HealTech one, of which this looks like a copy. Works ok and easy enough to fit. Picks up neutral switch feed plus revs and speed. There's a programming procedure (going through the gears with the wheels off the ground) and it calculates gear from revs/speed.

Due to the way they calculate the gear, they won't give you a true reading if you change gear when stopped (except for neutral) or when coasting up to a junction with the clutch in.

Ok, that's fine, just after something that gives me an idea as this bike shift style is going to get some getting used to.
