  • TLR Gauges

    I know sombody has done the switch to gixxer gauges. I was given a set but no wiring harness. Will there be any modification to the bolt pattern that I will be looking forward to before I attemp this?

    You know you'll lose the ability to read off any fuel injection fault codes, will lose the ability to check or set the TPS, will lose the temperature display and will have the red LED on all the time too?

      Seriously? I heard it would work just like stock with the exception of the red LED on all the time. I think I was supposed to splice the gixxer harness into the TL harness and every thing was a go. Oh well, guess I will slap the gixxer cluster on ebay.

        It can be done . You will need the stock ecm from the gsxr, the stepper motor off the throttle bodys and the construction of a resistor switching box . check with Decosse he has pefected this mod. T.L.

          I did it. What you really need is to have 2 harnesses. DO NOT CUT OR SPLICE EITHER!!!!!

          Keep one stock, and re-pin the other to the GSXR gauge. You want to keep the stock one to plug in your original tlr gauge to see what code you are throwing. It took me about an hour with a sewing needle to re pin the other harness. There is a little shaving involved in the headlight bucket for the mounting.

          With repinning you will lose the temp gauge, code reading, and the check display will stay on. All easy fixes.

          1) Buy a daytona digital temp gauge
          2) Keep the stock harness to check the fault codes with the stock gauges when needed
          3) Take apart the GSXR gauges and strategically place a piece of black electrical tape over the LCD "check" text so you dont have to see or explain it.

          The last thing to do is to run a constant power line from the + of the battery to the empty slot in the back of the harness, and you will now have the clock to show time as well.

                  Nice racrboy.
                  Do the turn signa light,fuel light work?And where does the sensor of the daytona temp attach?
                  Thanks

                          Yes, all idiot lights work, ang the sensor gets cut into a radiator line.

                            Obviously I am pretty new to this. When you say "Re-Pin", what exactly do you mean? I dont want to go into this blind when I do it. Is there a step by step post in the bike mod section?

                              You must (re)move the pins in the plug.
