Looks great, how easy is it to hook up? What is the backlight like for night driving?

A bit expensive, though..

Is there a cheaper way to add a rev counter to the SE?
Does the KTM Accessory Rev Counter work on 950 / twins?

I found that the Trailtech Vapor (which I got for rpm specifically) was all over the place. After tech support, and different methods of wrapping the rev wire, the best I could get was an estimate within 1500 rpm odd of where the engine actually was. Beautiful, but waste of time.

It's a very very interesting device. But you need to have at least basic programming knowledge ... You can basically program any feature into the device - or just use the standard features... Very very complex little device...

I use it on my WR400 and used it on my DR800... and liked it a lot!

Worked flawless, but requieres a little skill in mounting and wiring. I got an earlier model, for which Ii should do a Software-update. Dont know todays prices, but compared to the ICOs it was cheap 3 years ago!

I didn’t know these pieces of kit existed, I like! I was toying with the idea of replacing the instrument panel on my SE with the new Adv/Rc8's digital displays. Regarding the sporadic rpm readings, are they connected pre rectifier?

One thing that bugs me with the SE is that the mph and mpg seem to separately calibrated, any Linux programmers in here who could write some new firmware?
