MotorbikeBruno said:I can't truly have an opinion on that, since I have never actually had a trailtech speedo. What I can say, is that it's a great looking gauge, it's made for newer sportbikes (newer as in... 1990's + really) and came with tons of hookups and brackets. It has 2 new temp sensors that you can unscrew the old and put these in for water and oil I believe...(haven't done that yet though). I only paid $200 as it was a CL find...so I didn't feel like I was getting hosed. Look around for a good deal, I'm pretty happy with it, and see this thread for the other version of the RX2 gauge. He seems happy with his purchase as well.
Oh, and thanks for the compliment on mine! ;D
Bro, I've got the KOSO RX-2 and have mixed feelings about it: the fuel gauge has to be based on a 100ohm or 512ohm sending unit. My 2nd Gen Suzuki Bandit 1200 sends empty at about 92ohms. So the fuel gauge either shows 1/2 full or 1/2 empty all the time. I use the speedo passive unit that came with the kit & Its very accurate using the supplied magnets that get read by the passive sensor attached to the caliper bolts on the right side of the forks. I used two brackets that koso sent with the kit to create a Fraken Bracket that works. The Tach reads 1,000 rpm above what the engine is actually revving when taken right off the coil for the no. 1 & 2 cylinders. Did install the oil temp gauge with an adapter I made down in the pan by removing a gallery plug bolt. That works real well but the RX-2 gauge set only can read up to 248 degrees. For a Suzuki air-oil cooled gsxr based engine like mine has the normal op temp is around 212 but I do use it to diagnose what's going on w/ engine performance and when the bike's fully at op temp so i don't tear shit up when i really get on it. I contacted Koso N. America in Montreal (the set is made in Taiwan & the directions are translated pretty badly) & they basically gave up. I'm looking for a gauge set for my next project & dont think I'll go w/ a Koso next time...Will try to attach some photos & feel free to contact me if you get a Koso & want help w/ the set up...
BTW: Great Build -- Keep it Going
