GIPro Gear indicator.

OK, trying to add GIPro gear indicator to the recently purchased RC51. Installation seemed to be straight forward except there's a slight problem, of course. The instructions call to cut into the tachometer signal line connected to the ECU. Per instructions the tach wire in the wire harness connected to the ECU should be "solid yellow with green stripe". All fine and well, except one nuance: there's no yellow w/ green stripe wire. Any ideas what the wire (tachometer signal) is? Its 2004 (SP2), if that makes any difference?

Thanks.

Thanks.
ECU connector A (black), pin A21.
If you're looking down at the connector, locate the row of pins near the release.
Then follow the pins to the left until you get to the next to the last pin.
That should be A21 and it should be Y/G.

Yep, found it. I should change my nick to "dumb-dumb" or something: the wire was right in front of my eyes. The LED flashlight (not enough lighting in my garage) actually made it look like yellow with blue stripe!
SubSalor, I dug up wiring diagram and the tach wire, indeed, is exactly were you said it should be! Thanks, buddy, and sorry for the confusion.

All installed and working beautifully now. Next step: speedohealer.

^^^Please???^^^

I have said since I got this bike that I can't stand not knowing what gear I'm in and all my buddies mention that they either can keep track of it or "don't care because they just ride" and when they come to a stop they just down shift until they can't downshift any more. I want this but also want to know how this turned out for you...

Or for that matter maybe someone else has an indicator and wants to chime in please??

That's a really nice little install! Your bike looks pretty tricked out. Nice job
