Acumen DG8
« on: April 22, 2009, 21:46:10 »
Hello blokes,

Not sure if anyone as fitted one of these but decided to fit one to my K7 Strom.

If anyone decides to do it, there is a wiring block inside the left hand front fairing, and all wires from the DG8 can be connected into this (well my bike hasn't burst into flames yet  lol )

I removed the fairing but you could probably reach the block from reaching down inside the fairing.

Works great for us folks with bad memories  :shock:

Hello MattF. I did some pictures when I fitted mine. I got the one with the voltmeter built in.

It works OK. I realised after I installed it I didn't need to remove all the bodywork and could have done it from under the left side.  ###

Had a look but still no idea what an Acumen DG8 is. Is it a bit like Frank Zappa's Telefunken U47?

I believe it's a gear indicator (stops you trying to select 7th I guess).
