Me too!

Your right there is a bit more to it. I haven't got all the detail yet but Dave is going to send it through. He mentioned 2 things the master cylinder size is 10.5, the Handle bar adaptor bracket needs to be sized according to the size of any switch block fitted. In the case of the white HPM it is the largest offset adaptor. I will post more info as it comes to hand.

I like the look of those gauges, wish I'd seen those before going the Vapour route . The Vapour works ok but it is very hard to read. A combination of mounting position and backlit LCD screen (limited on Lynx dash) and too much info crammed into each screen making individual read outs too small to read easily. Even the idiot lights on the dash are hard to read when the sun is shining on the dash.

The R100GS that is being built for me will have a Vapour fitted into a Lynx fairing. The builder twigged that the dash angle is wrong so he will be making a surround for the Vapour and then fitting that into the dash at an angle where it can be easily read. Separate idiot lights will be fitted into the dash.

That sounds like a good plan. I have mounted my Zumo 550 above h vapour an use that for speed redout as its nice and clear. I might have a think about changing the angle. Have you sourced the right cable and sensor for engine temp?

I`m going over the workshop tomorrow to get some tires fitted to my 1100GS, I`ll find out about the sensor.

I had my heart set on this:
http://motogadget.com/de/fahrzeugtyp...oad-rally.html
Until seeing the GPS based gauge.
NO more wire down the fork! Custom colors, 2 diameters available.
Lots of info on the small led screen.
Oh and lifetime warranty made it an easy choice.
You guys make me proud of my Aussie heritage.
Keep up the nice work.

Cheers,
S.

Change of spec (apparently), we are going with an Acewell unit now; much the same as the Vapour, but the one we`re using doesn`t have built in idiot lights. Not having a temp gauge, so cable and sensor won`t be needed.

I haven`t got the focus to work out how to post pics here, so it you want to PM me an email address, I`ll send a pic of what my mate has done with his lynx/Vapour fitment.

SWEET! Thanks. The hose is really that short, huh? I'm not near a BMW clutch cable to compare, but when I saw the available lengths I figured I'd need something longer. Good to know. I also just found this design guide on venhill's site: http://www.venhill.co.uk/Downloads/HymecSelection.pdf

The pull rod is extended at the join you see in this picture, Dave made up the extension. I will try and get some details and better pics

The important points for the clutch are master cylinder 10.5 to get enough travel on the actuator rod. Ten appropriate size mounting bracket for your left hand switch block clearance. The actuator rod was extended using a stainless steel spoke cut to length and threaded to allow join and fine adjustment. Coupling is brass see close up below

I thought that looked like a spoke. Thanks for the writeup on that. I may add that to my list of eventual improvements.
