Well, as pointed out above, it's kinda nice to know when you need to start thinking about gas.....unless you just ride the same places all the time....

... but then again, sometimes when I restart the bike too quickly (without waiting for the tach needle up and back sweep) the tach readings are way out of whack - reading much lower than what I know to be happening by ear.

I guess I'll have to experiment with this a little.

+100. My switch is the button on the left side of the dash.



It's an on/off push button switch. A rocker or toggle would give better visual indication, but I liked the weather proof 10A switch from HDB. The red ABS fault light on the dash lets me know when it's disabled.
