So far I really like the Motogadgets Tiny. I use a TinyTach for tuning the carbs, easy to install and remove.

That's awesome! Did you order directly from Motogadgets Germany or is there a US distributor? (Not sure where you're located).

Resurrecting this thread:

Anyone have any idea where one can get an Acewell now? The original link doesn't work for me.

Thanks!

I bought mine from Dime City, last fall. I see that they now have a "BMW" adapter... but it sure doesn't look like it would fit the tranny...mightl have to try that one when I install this baby on OleRed... spring IS coming, isn't it????

Without even looking on the site (hmmmm, some photo's on the Acwewell page might look familiar): The BMW adapter is for later BMW's (F800 and such) and will not fit your 2V.

However, you can buy the Suzuki one and with a little bit of work you can get it to fit (If I can, anybody can).

Thanks MIOB, I contacted them and they can get the Suzuki adapter S10.... but then I googled the Acewell, and on the "home" site in UK, they list an adapter for Boxer transmissions, which looks to be exactly what is needed:



15.60 inc VAT
BMW Boxer R100GS


I have an email in to Dime City Cycles to see if they can get it... it would be terrific for all of us airhead "modifiers" if that could be had... it would also work with any other electronic speedometer (I am thinking VDO or Stewart Warner)....

:)

Thanks for the replies!

Anybody know about the 2803 model? All I can find is the 2853. E-mails to both Acewell and Baja haven't been returned. Maybe I'll just fix the original clocks .

Just put in a order to Acewell UK for the ACE-11 sensor. $33 USD including shipping. The factory R100 GS cable (part #62121357731) is the same as my 83 R65.

Looks like another nice build underway bpeckm.

Acewellin GSPD Speedo Hole?

I think I've heard there is an Acewell speedometer that will fit in the speedo-hole on a GSPD, which I think is said to be 90mm across (hard to measure zactly without taking it off).

I'd like to find a speedo-only unit and not go through the hassles of changing over all the idiiot lights, and why get rid of the stock tach? it works, and then I'd have another big hole in the dash.

Anyone have any experience putting an Acewell unit into the dash of a GSPD, which unhit, where'd you git it, how'd you like it?
