Yep. I got the B breakout box which will do oil pressure and temp if I add those sensors later. Now I'll just run the basics - turn signal indicator, neutral light, oil pressure switch. I haven't had a chance to mess with the speedo much yet, but I'm pretty impressed with it. The accelerometer can be used like a crude dyno, so it might come in handy for jetting purposes. Better than an ass-dyno at least. There's also an automatic 0-60 timer function.

For that dyno reason I ordered one today. I'm going to swap the motoscoop mini I have on my ST for the motoscope pro.
I have the motoscope classic on my sidecar and its great.

My only complaint is that the wires are SO small. They're tough to work with. They're so small that I couldn't find terminals small enough to fit them and had to solder on larger wire to each one to run it into a terminal block.

I know, I did the same thing. but so far mine are still ok with the deutsch connectors. Although I would like to have some thicker wires coming from the speedo.

I Was wondering if you are going to use all the temp. and the fuel connections ?

Yep, I've gotten it hooked up and been out for a few rides with it. I like it a lot. I haven't hooked up the breakout box yet. I don't plan on doing the fuel level sensor as I don't want to mess with drilling holes in my tanks. I'll probably do the oil temp and oil pressure sensors though. I'm still looking for a new house (and garage) so the only work I'm doing on my bike right now happens out at Fubar's shop, half an hour away. Progress is slow right now.

That your not going to drill holes in the tank doesn't surprise me
I'm planning to put it in my auxiliary tank.

For the oil/water temp I need to start drilling too.

I can't wait to test the G force meter

Aw, balls. I just fitted up my r100rt mono 2-2 exhaust the other day. Suffice it to say that the 2-1 is LOUD. Not too bad when just cruising along, but when you give it full juice it verges on waking the dead. When I took it off, I weighed the Y pipe, muffler and clamps at a total of 5.5 lbs though - supalight.

with collector box?

Is that system going to affect your performance?

I have the 80RT system and it sounds like a throttled sewing-machine

Yes, with the collector.

I can't feel any considerable difference in performance, but then again, I haven't dialed in my jetting yet either. I suspect it's more than a bit off. On top of that the top end only has a couple hundred miles on it so far, so it still has some loosening up to do.

I believe the mono 80RT system is exactly the same. It's a LOT quieter now. I still haven't wired up a horn and now that I can't rev my engine and scare the paint off nearby cars, I really need to hook one up before I ride it any more. Also, the rear brake pedal hits the collector box, so I'll need to ask fubar to modify that (still looking for my own garage). Rear brakes are useful.

I am also thinking of changing my exhaust set-up to something more mellow. Had just got a second hand 100GS 2-into-1 collector box as part of that process.

From what I figured out the Keihan repro collector box is 2 into 2 only, at which point you are probably right to go for a s/h RT set-up.

I like the thud thud sound that these bikes can make, but otherwise want it to be inconspicuous - for both offroad or city riding I think thats a great plus. But judging by the db level of most aftermarket systems I am in the minority on this one.

Add me to that minority. I find loud exhausts wearying over long distances. Maybe AW has the right idea though, a sensible system for travel, and a hooligan exhaust for grins.
