F650GS (single) instrument panel replacement

I am currently working on a circuit that will allow the replacement of the instrument cluster on ABS equipped BMW F650GS singles.

This would allow you to replace the cluster with something like a Trailtech Vapor and still have a fully functional ABS system.

Currently, if you remove the BMW cluster, the ABS light will not function and the ABS faults out.

This is really just a personal project for myself, on my 2001 F650GS. Someone mentioned that I should at least post see if there is any other interest from the group.

So what say you? Is this something that might have some interest here?

Thanks
Brett

Brett,
I not sure that this is true. I fitted a Voyager and the ABS worked, but was never able to get the light to function properly. Also, the disable switch was a hit and miss affair (difficult to disengage). I later removed the ABS system.

If you can figure out how to get the light to work you will be thanked by many.

On my bike, the ABS might work without the speedo, DAMHIK. The problem is that you don't know one way or the other without the light. You can test it when leaving the driveway, but who's to say it didn't fault out at the end of the block.

The goal of this whole exercise is to get the light functioning properly. Then you have some clue as to the status of the ABS.

I don't have ABS, but love the idea of being able to connect a Vapor. Depends on the $.

If you don't have ABS then you're fine. Just some wiring to install the Vapor. This is only if you're ditching the dash in favor of a Vapor, etc AND you want a functioning ABS light.

Okay so I've built one of these and it seems to be working. I am going to test it out this weekend at the Howlin at the Moon dual sport ride in Wickenburg, AZ.

Stay tuned.

Cheers
Brett

If your circuit needs a small circuit board, I have done a bit on board design & keeping them as small as possible in the past

To be honest,

There didn't seem to be the interest I thought there'd be. Seems most folks, when they start modding the F650GS this far, they usually ditch the ABS, and the light.

Im keeping the prototype on the bike I have for sale.

I've got the schematic that I came up with. Maybe I'll make a few more in a little while.

Since I bought my RXV, it just hasnt been a priority.

Open to ideas.

Cheers
Brett

Is the schematic posted anywhere, or would you be willing to share it?

There is no need for any circuit to turn off the ABS lamp, the wiring is now documented at the end of the YZ Fork Notes doc on my web site
