I'm googling how I can make my speedo work now because of this. Trying to figure out how to use a megasquirt pwm output to operate the speedo instead of the reed switch.

You cant with an NA cluster. The speedo cable physically spins the mechanism that makes the speedo work, the reed switch is just to provide speed info to the electronics like cruise control. If you swapped in an NB cluster you could do it but IIRC thats not a completely bolt in solution.

Should be simpleish. There is a picture of someone scoping the output of the reed switch somewhere, or we can scope mine. Then just match it with an output.

I was thinking about an nb cluster, oops.

Do this. Mobius might even have an extra cluster after his #jdmswagyolo swap.

Night Mode.




I deleted the pink everywhere except for the redline. Er, pinkline?


Turbokitty is a bit dim due to the NA odometer guts being between it and the light. Still, it's not bad.

HA! Sure. I have a couple more tachs to take pix of first. I also have a full set (with 6:00 zero) to take pix of.

Annnd... I think I will spam all of the various boards with these later too. If other boards were as tight as MT, maybe they'd have their own gauges too.

-edit-

I'm also doing some keychains. Someone requested one though my store. I've been thinking of ways to make it awesome. I'll do a decently big batch so that I have extras for anyone who might want one.

Love the party gauge!

Damn, my order already shipped. Otherwise I would have gotten a keychain too. Mine is supposed to get here tomorrow. I was going to wait until my oil/water temp gauge gets in to install the face but I don't know if I can wait that long.

Also the colored confetti is another level. I was not expecting that.
