Speedohealer
01
Q:
Do I need to know calculus or complex math to program a SpeedoHealer like I hear your competitor claim?
A:
Only if you can't figure out how to use a web browser (and we assume since you're reading this that you CAN use the internet just fine) to use the online calculator at http://healtech-electronics.com,
....use a Flash app (Download: http://www.healtech-electronics.com/docs/sh_calculator_en.zip
....or an Android app: Free download here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.HealTech.SHv4_Calculator

This is EASY. You simply enter a few values in text boxes, and it does the math FOR YOU and spits out step by step instructions. If you can program an alarm clock using mode and select buttons, you can program a SpeedoHealer.

Q:
How do I know a SpeedoHealer is actually working without using a GPS?
A:
The SpeedoHealer includes a 7 segment LED display making it possible to review, modify, and fine tune settings. EVERY time you turn on the ignition the stored calibration value is shown on the display. Further, there is a built-in test mode to confirm installation before you ever have to ride the bike. Plus, the unit has a 9-step signal generator for speedo/odo analysis (linearity, factory error).

Q:
I loaned my bike to a friend, and he noticed that every time he hit the top speed recall it added a tiny amount to the odometer. What the heck?
A:
Top speed recall causes the speedometer to show the last top speed. Say it was 130mph. Well, the speedo and odometer are linked, and if your bike takes 1/4 mile to reach 130mph from a standing start, that is what will show on the odometer each time you use the TSM function. But think about it...if you use the TSM function 25 times a year, that means you're registering MAYBE an extra 4-6 miles per year. And since the SpeedoHealer is correcting speedo/odo error, you're saving hundreds of miles per year from your odometer's false high reading.
OBD Tool
04
Q:
What does the OBD Tool do?
A:
The OBD ("On Board Diagnostics") Tool includes a hardware interface module and PC software, which allows the user to view current and past error codes, clear errors, monitor sensor values in real time, view sensor values on graph, save a measurement to file and play back later, perform function tests, etc. It has the same features as the factory SDS tool but offered for a lot less money. Like the factory tool from Suzuki and Honda, it does not alter/reprogram the ECU.

Q:
Am I understanding that first screen shot correctly? Can this be used to change the idle on the newer bikes that use an ISC rather than an idle screw?
A:
According to HealTech, the first screen shot shows the available test functions supported by the Suzuki OBD. If you change the RPM here, the engine RPM should change to this value too. This way you can test whether the ISC is working correctly or not.

If you exit from test mode, the idle will return to the factory pre-set value. There's no way to change the idle speed with an add-on device without inducing an FI error. We tried a few things but nothing worked well. You may try to adjust the TPS position, this may help a little.

Q:
What are the system requirements for the software installation on my PC?
A:
This software has a very low load demand on your computer. The system requirements are as follows:
- Win98SP2
- Pentium III
- RAM: 256MB
- HDD space: 2 MB
- Resolution: 1024x768
- One USB port
Speedohealer
07
Q:
What does the installation involve?
A:
You generally need to remove the side fairing and/or lift the fuel tank to access the speed sensor coupler. Once you do that, the rest is easy. Separate the speed coupler and plug in the SpeedoHealer harness connectors, being VERY careful not to bend any pins in the connector.
Speedohealer
08
Q:
Are all the SpeedoHealer harness kits plug and play?
A:
Almost all Speedohealer kits are plug-n-play....for hundreds of motorcycle models. In fact, only the U01 (Universal) harness kit requires splicing of all wires. On that kit, you splice the 4 wires to the speed sensor wires (Power, Ground, Signal In, Signal Out). All connections can be done at one place near the sensor. The Kawasaki-4 (K04) kit is still a plug-in installation, but you need to install the supplied plug-adapters first. Then it is plug-and-play from there.

09
Q:
Which vehicles are the SpeedoHealer compatible with?
A:
The SpeedoHealer will work with all bikes, ATV's, cars, vans, trucks, and custom vehicles which have a 3-wire speedo sensor. For Autos, we have an automotive-specific kit available at bluemonkeymotorsports.com.

Q:
How can I use the SpeedoHealer to convert Km/h to MPH or vise versa?
A:
Converting from Km/h to MPH is the most common need, so the unit is designed to convert with a single button function. Press SEL until the actual mode ([C] or [-]) is displayed and keep it depressed for one more sec, until the value toggles.

When Km/h to MPH conversion is active, the indicated speed and distance travelled will be converted, but the displayed units of measure (km/h and km) won't be changed.


To change MPH to Km/h you have to program +60.9% (1.609 multiplier) on top of the calibration value you need. However, keep in mind that your speedometer’s maximum reading will not be changed. E.g. a speedo with 186 MPH highest reading will not be able to show over 186 Km/h after conversion.

11
Q:
I see no mention of mph to kmph.I live in Canada and we are stuck with the metric system and I just bought a bike in the states (2007 FJR) so I need to change it from mph to kmph will the Speedohealer do that for me?
A:
If you wish to use MPH to Km/h conversion, you have to program +60.9% (1.609 multiplier) on top of the calibration value you need. However, keep in mind that your speedometer’s maximum reading will not be changed. E.g. a speedo with 186 MPH highest reading will not be able to show over 186 Km/h after conversion.

Q:
My speedo is analog. Will the SpeedoHealer work with it?
A:
Yes. It works with both analog (rotating needle) and digital (LCD, etc) speedometers, provided the speedometer is electronic (not cable driven)
Speedohealer
13
Q:
How can I tell if my speedo is electronic?
A:
You can tell it's electronic if there is no cable going to the back of the dash (usually from the front wheel). Modern bikes have electronic speedos since the mid-1990's.
Speedohealer
14
Q:
What size is a SpeedoHealer?
A:
The SpeedoHealer control box is 17x50x29mm (.67x1.97x1.14 inches). This is less than HALF the total dimensions of a competitor's product.
Speedohealer
15
Q:
How to I switch back and forth between the A and B memory banks once I've stored two calibration settings?
A:
Press SET until the active memory bank ([A] or [b]) is displayed and keep it depressed for one more sec, until the value toggles.
Speedohealer
16
Q:
Will the SpeedoHealer calibrate both my speedo and odometer?
A:
It is not possible to calibrate them separately, as one speed signal drives both the speedometer and odometer simultaneously. On most bikes, if the speedo is calibrated to be 100% accurate, the odometer will register slightly less miles. While this could be annoying in some situations, one can always calculate the real distance easily after a long trip. Alternatively, you could adjust a very inaccurate speedo (after gearing change) to have the odometer be dead on, which would still have a slightly optimistic speedo reading.
Speedohealer
17
Q:
Will the SpeedoHealer fix my speedometer in the entire range?
A:
Modern motorcycles have little to no linearity error. If you wish, you can check for linearity error of the speedo using the SpeedoHealer in test mode.

Q:
I'm currently using a different brand of speedo recalibrator on my CBR600F4i. The speedo jumps up and down by 1-3mph at steady speed. Does your product do that too?
A:
No, it will not. The SpeedoHealer uses 32-bit real-time mathematic algorithm and .001 correction steps, so we don't experience these side effects with our product.
Speedohealer
19
Q:
I use a different brand of speedo recalibrator on my GSXR1000, and at very low speeds, the speedometer stays at zero or jumps around. What does yours do?
A:
Unlike the SpeedoHealer, other calibrators do not drive the speedo below a certain frequency. With our kit, there is NO speedo lag, even on takeoff.
Speedohealer
20
Q:
I see there are other products out there cheaper than your unit that claim to do the same thing, but for less. Why should I buy your unit?
A:
As long as there are quality products, there will be inferior competitors. The superiority of the SpeedoHealer is in the total sum of its robust features, ease of programming (like setting time on a clock), rugged build design, quality of construction, protection from water ingress, post sales tech support, and length of warranty...which our competitors quite frankly CANNOT match for even MORE money than our unit. Do you remember the Ford Pinto or AMC Pacer? We do too...and we wouldn't want one. There will ALWAYS be a huge market for quality when people get tired of inferior products.
Speedohealer
21
Q:
I disconnected the SpeedoHealer and removed my bike's battery. Will I need to program the SpeedoHealer again?
A:
No. The SpeedoHealer retains settings even if disconnected as values are stored in flash memory. It will always display the calibration value in use whenever the ignition key is turned on.

22
Q:
Can I buy a SpeedoHealer control box or harness separately?
A:
Yes. Contact your dealer or contact us directly at 877-234-5150x2.
Speedohealer
23
Q:
I'm interested in the SpeedoHealer for my 2009 Yamaha V-Max. Don't you make a plug-n-go kit for my bike?
A:
We do not have a plug-n-go kit for your bike, sorry. However, the SHV4 with SH-U01 harness will work fine on your bike. The splice should be made on the white/yellow (speed signal) wire between the ABS and ECU coupler. Calibration will not interfere with the ABS function, and should improve overall performance.
Speedohealer
24
Q:
I have a GPS unit on my motorcycle. Is there any reason to install a SpeedoHealer?
A:
Absolutely. GPS receivers (and bike computers) are notorious for having quite a large lag, and in fact they do NOT do a good job showing true momentary speed. The sensors on a bike computer (for example) send only one pulse per wheel revolution, whereas the bike's OEM speed sensor sends over 80. Next, when your odometer shows more miles than actual, nobody cares what your GPS says...you will pay for it in lower value when you sell your bike. Next, if the vehicle is equipped with fuel consumption meter, top speed, average speed, or other functions, having an accurate speed signal is that much more important. Finally, reading from a small GPS screen can be hard and unsafe, especially at high speeds or in low light conditions.
Speedohealer
25
Q:
How can I use the top speed memory (TSM) recall function and how does it work?
A:
Press and release the remote button. The last top speed is shown on the speedometer for a few seconds (even if the bike is in motion). Keep the button depressed for 2 seconds to reset the TSM. NOTE: The TSM retains its value even after the ignition is switched off (stored in flash memory). Also, the TSM function is disabled in transparent mode. And the odometer always registers proportional to the indicated speed. So every time you use the TSM function, you will accrue a slight extra distance (i.e. 1/8 mile or more).
Speedohealer
26
Q:
On the universal U01 wiring kit, what are the typical speed sensor wire colors?
A:
Here are the common/typical wire colors

APRILIA: Green = power, Blue/Orange = ground, Grey/white = signal
BUELL: Red = power, Black = ground, White = signal
HONDA: Violet = power, Green/Black = ground, Pink/Green = signal
HARLEY: Red = power, Black = ground, White = signal
TRIUMPH: Orange/Red = power, Black/White = ground, Pink = signal

If your bike is not listed above, or if the wire colors are different, you can identify the wires by using a voltmeter (multimeter) as follows:

1. Reconnect the speed sensor coupler. Switch the instrument to DC 20V position. Connect the black probe to the negative terminal of the battery. Turn ignition ON.

2. At first, identify the SIGNAL wire.
Connect the red probe to one lead in the 3p (3 pole) plug through the back by using a thin needle for back probing.
Rotate the rear wheel by hand. The signal wire is the one where the voltage level changes periodically (e.g. 0V-5V-0V). If the voltage does not change as the wheel turns, try another lead.

3. Identify the POWER wire from the remaining two.
Measure the voltage level on the remaining two leads.
The voltage reading on the power should be +5V to +12V.

4. Confirm that the remaining wire is the GROUND.
Switch the voltmeter into resistor or continuity test mode. Connect the red probe of the instrument to the remaining lead of the 3p plug through the back. The value indicated should be approx. 0 Ohms.

5. Take note of the wire colors and their functions. Turn ignition OFF and disconnect the speed sensor coupler.

27
Q:
With an Acumen or Datatool gear indicator installed (the model that plugs into the speed sensor), can it be used with a SpeedoHealer?
A:
Yes. The SpeedoHealer can be used with other aftermarket products like these. We recommend connecting the gear indicator between the speed sensor and the SpeedoHealer white wire.
Speedohealer
28
Q:
Why won't the SpeedoHealer work on the 2011-up ZX-10R?
A:
It has ABS wheel sensors only (no speedometer sensor). Calibrating the ABS sensor signals would interfere with the ABS and traction control system. It also has CAN signaling between the ECU and dashboard, meaning we can't modify the speedometer signal here either. If more bikes get this system in 2012 and later, we will have a solution but it requires a lot of R&D work and will take time.
Speedohealer
29
Q:
Will the SpeedoHealer remove the speed limiter on my bike (ZX10, ZX14, CBR1000RR, R1, etc)?
A:
It does not remove a top speed limiter that runs solely from your speedo. But by calibrating your speedo which has a 5-8% factory error, the limit point will be raised accordingly. Usually that means the limit point will never be reached. If your bike HAS been tuned for absolute top speed, use the dual bank memory feature of the SH-V4. For example, when riding a ZX-14 on the street, have one stored setting to a correct speedo reading. To attempt a speed run, switch to the secondary store setting of -90%. So 170 reads 17, 180 reads 18, etc. Switching between A-B memory banks is as simple as pressing a button. NOTE: The SpeedoHealer does not affect the speed limiter on Suzuki motorcycles with gear position sensor. You need a GIPro/ATRE to bypass the speed limiter on Suzukis.

Q:
My friend installed my SpeedoHealer and zip tied the TSM cable tightly next to the unit. Today I went out to show a friend the top speed recall feature and it showed '0'. I started my bike and the speedo read '0'. I tried to reprogram the unit but it show
A:
If 'E' is shown constantly on the SH display right after ignition is turned on, there is a short in the button or the remote cable is damaged, possibly by being crimped if zip tied too tightly. Disconnect the 2p (2-pole) TSM connector from the SH box and see of the speedo works normally now. If it does, then;
- Visually inspect the TSM cable for damage or crimping
- Check if the TSM button clicks normally
- Spray some WD-40 into the button.
If none of these fix the issue and you cannot see any problem with the TSM cable, contact the manufacturer for further support.

Q:
I have a version 4 Speedo Healer on a 2007 GSXR600. When I turn on the ignition, the SH unit flashes 'F2'...what do I do?
A:
This means that your unit left the factory still in 'factory test mode'. We apologize, but you will need to contact us for a warranty exchange. They will have to reset the unit and it's easier for us just to send you a new one.
Speedohealer
32
Q:
I see a few problems shown here with SpeedoHealer owners. How reliable is the SpeedoHealer?
A:
With over 30,000 SpeedoHealer units sold, we have a ridiculously low amount of bad units. Quite literally just a handful per year come back to us that were not user error. And as you can tell, we stand behind these with the best warranty in America on this type of product.

Q:
I have a SpeedoHealer on my 2007 Yamaha FZ6. I also attached the top speed cable used to check your top speed (after a ride). When I turn the ignition on (not starting the engine) and push the button to check the top speed, it will show 2 different #'s on
A:
This is actually normal behavior, not a problem with the unit. it's more of a bike-specific anomaly. See, the SpeedoHealer sends the recorded top speed to the speedometer as soon as you push the TSM button. But a certain lag can happen for the speedo to go from zero, and an in-between number may be displayed briefly. If you had an analog speedo, the needle would sweep from 0 to the recorded speed. Same thing.

Q:
My speedo healer worked good until I reset the clock and put it in kilometers instead of miles per hour. Not knowing, I thought it needed to be reset and mistakenly set it in kilometers. I got it back to miles per hour and now it won't work once it's cali
A:
Please follow these steps to resolve the issue:

1) First, disconnect the 3p and 4p connectors and check whether the pins are broken, bent or pushed out of position. Reconnect the harness, and make sure that all connections are good and the connectors are fully seated.

2) Disconnect the 2-pole TSM connector and use the SH this way until the problem is resolved.

3) Do not bend the SH harness near the 4p SH connector. Otherwise the pins don't have a solid contact and may get loose or break over time.

4) If the LED responds, please execute the SH input and output tests as follows:

- Have the ignition OFF.
- Press SEL and keep it depressed while you turn ignition ON.
[t] (test) is now indicated. Release the button.
Check: The speedo should indicate a steady number other than zero.

Rotate the wheels back and forth.
Check: [t] should be blinking as the wheel turns.

Note: [t] appears on the display like an [E] without the top horizontal bar.

5) If the tests above work fine but your speedometer does not move while riding, most likely you have programmed too high calibration value, e.g. -90.0% instead of -9.0%
Perform the Master Reset procedure:
- Turn ignition On
- Push SEL + SET and keep them depressed until "E" is indicated.

Now the speedometer should work normally. Use the on-line calculator to generate setup instructions.

Q:
I do not wish to alter the stock gear maps, can I use the GI function only?
A:
YES! We ship the GIpro with ATRE mode disabled. The GIpro is the best gear indicator you can get for your Suzuki. It's not like competing products that all suffer from lag and incorrect readings. Your other option is to get a GIpro DS-series gear indicator, which has a smaller display and does not have ATRE function.

36
Q:
I have a DynoJet Power Commander and/or Ignition Module installed, is there any reason to get the GIpro?
A:
YES! The benefits are: 1) The Power Commander/Ignition Module can only map ONE gear. The GIpro will help the Power Commander/Ignition Module because it locks the map in an unrestricted gear. 2) The Power Commander can adjust the FUEL map only, while the ATRE disables the timing retarder used in lower gears. 3) ATRE will disable the speed limiter (GSXR1000, Hayabusa, DL1000, M109R) while the Power Commander will not. 4) You'll find the Gear Indicator function extremely useful in various situations.

38
Q:
The HealTech website says that the ATRE function is turned off as a default. Does this mean that when I stop, the function has to be manually reengaged via the button?
A:
No. Once enabled, the settings won't be cleared unintentionally, even if you disconnect the battery.
GIPro w/ATRE
39
Q:
Is it possible to check which ATRE mode is in use?
A:
Yes, simply press and release the button. The actual mode is indicated (blinking) for 3 seconds. If you wish to change the setting, press the button again while the display is blinking.
GIPro w/ATRE
40
Q:
What is the difference between the four ATRE modes (-, 4, 5, 6) on a Suzuki?
A:
The "-" (or Normal) setting turns the function Off. To activate the feature, select either "4", "5" or "6" depending on the motorcycle you have. We list the recommended setting for all bikes in the User's Guide. As an example, the Hayabusa works best with "5" mode. Note: The GIpro for Kawasaki and Triumph has different ATRE modes. For the correct setting please refer to the User's Guide.
GIPro w/ATRE
41
Q:
The clutch safety switch has been disabled on my bike. Will this potentially affect the ability of the GIPro to function correctly?
A:
The GIpro will work fine with clutch switch disabled. However, with disabled clutch switch, your ECU MAY use the restricted ignition map regardless whether ATRE is enabled or not. Make sure your switch is disabled such a way that the ECU can read the switch signal properly, only the starter relay is grounded permanently.

Q:
I'm a dealer, and my customer has a Kawasaki Vulcan 2000. He wants to know where the gear indicator plugs in, since he already has a Cobra FI2000 fuel injector processor that is plugged into the bike's ECU port.
A:
The GIPro/ATRE connects to the GPS (Gear Position Sensor) port on the VN2000. It will work fine on his bike, yes.

45
Q:
How do I install a GIPro/ATRE on my Suzuki bike?
A:
The following steps are applicable for all Suzuki models:
1. Make sure the ignition is OFF, and remove the seat.
2. prop up the fuel tank.
3. Locate the GPS (Gear Position Sensor) coupler. This 3-pole white triangular connector is usually at the back under the fuel tank, and is usually on the left side.
4. Disconnect the GPS coupler. You may need a small flat head screwdriver to get the coupler apart.
5. Put the bike in Neutral, and turn the ignition to ON. Wait a few seconds. With the right coupler disconnected, the neutral indicator should NOT be working. After confirming this, turn the ignition OFF.
6. Some time may be required to determine the best mounting location around the instrument panel. Several bikes have room on the center or bottom right of the tachometer gauge. That is our favorite mounting location if possible. Move the handlebars lock-to-lock to make sure the steering won't be restricted by the unit or harness.
7. Clean the mounting surface and mount the unit with the supplied 2-sided velcro tape.
8. Route the harness neatly to the location of the GPS coupler making sure the harness does not interfere with steering and that there is no excessive bending of the harness in any steering position. If possible, run the cable INSIDE the frame spars.
9. Connect the 3-pole harness connector of the GIPro to the GPS coupler. Make sure that none of the metal pins have been pushed out of position. (NOTE: Ham-fisted 'just force it' installation accounts for most problems)
10. Route the red power lead to the battery. Make sure it won't interfere with the fuel tank and seat. Push the lead through the red terminal cap from the back so it goes along with the bike's main power lead. Connect it to the battery's POSITIVE terminal under the main harness lead. The display will power on then go into standby mode. Tighten the battery terminal screw. The red terminal cap should fit normally.
11. To minimize cable stress due to vibration, use the supplied cable ties to fasten the connectors and harness to the bike's wiring harness. Do not allow direct contact between the engine (cylinder block) and the harness.
12. Make sure all hoses are properly in place and lower the fuel tank.
13. Turn ignition to ON. Have engine stop switch in RUN, and put the kick stand in UP position. The display should indicate the gear currently selected via the shift lever.
14. Secure the fuel tank and the seat. Take a test ride. If the gears indicate correctly, then you do not need to use the auto-learn process, and you're done!

Maximum supply current: 85mA @ 12V
GIPro w/ATRE
55
Q:
How much power will the GIPRO/ATRE add to my GSXR1000?
A:
This is a common mistake when people are looking to add this unit. It does NOT add 'peak' horsepower to your bike. What it does is allow your bike to make its peak power in ALL GEARS. Thus, on the 2009 GSXR1000, you will see a gain of 14-16hp in gears 1-2-3 where the factory has it detuned in those gears, but your PEAK power at 6th gear remains the same as a factory bike. HUGE power gains down low where you use it often, but no 'extra top end' power.

56
Q:
How do I adjust the sensitivity of the brightness controller?
A:
The sensitivity can be adjusted in 10 levels, from 0-9. Level 4 is the default value. Decrease for LESS brightness, increase it for MORE brightness. Note that if you're already in low light or bright light conditions, you may not notice a difference as the unit could already be at maximum or minimum setting.
1. With ignition key in OFF position, select neutral. The display should be blank.
2. Depress the button and hold it while turning the key to ON.
3. Release the button after about 3 seconds when 'A' (Adjust) is showing.
4. The current sensitivity level will be showing. (blinking)
5. Press and release the button when display is blinking. You can cycle through the values by pressing the button repeatedly.
6. When the desired setting is blinking on the display, wait for three seconds. The display goes back to normal operation and the new setting will be in effect.

GIPro w/ATRE
58
Q:
How do I reset a GIPro/ATRE?
A:
Resetting the unit will restore factory defaults (TRE default is OFF, auto brightness default is 4)

1. Activate the display (turn ignition ON with engine switch at RUN, motor off).
2. Press the button and keep it depressed until 'L' (Learning) appears on the display.
3. Press and release the button again to terminate auto learning procedure. 'U' (Update) will blink on the display for a few seconds. Factory defaults have now been restored and the unit is reset.
NOTE: Disconnecting battery power does NOT reset the GIPro, as learning data is stored in flash memory.

Q:
How can I check whether pre-set (factory default) or custom (auto-learned) gear positions are in use on my Hayabusa?
A:
The obvious answer is that if you're the bike owner and you never executed the auto-learn function, then your unit is using the factory default setting. However, if you want to confirm, do the following:
Disconnect and reconnect the power lead from the battery terminal to repower the unit.
When the unit is powered up, the display will either indicate 'D' (for default) or it will show the total number of gears learned (it would be 6 on the GSX1300R, for example) for about one second, then the actual current gear position will be displayed.
GIPro w/ATRE
60
Q:
When I turn on the ignition the unit just shows 'D'. (I set it for 4th gear) The GIPro then does display the gears properly but I don't think the TRE is working because I had an Ivans on another bike and it ran different.
A:
If you're getting a 'D' (default) that indicates that the gear learning procedure was not executed, because the factory default gear positions are OK. To review ATRE mode, push and release the button in neutral. The recommended settings are:

- mode 4: DL1000, B-King, M109R
- mode 5: GSXXR1000, GSX1300R, GSF1250
- mode 6: Other models.

If the recommended ATRE mode is selected, it will then work fine. If go through the steps and still have problems, contact the manufacturer.
GIPro w/ATRE
61
Q:
I store my 2001 Hayabusa for long periods of time. I did a voltmeter test to see if anything will drain power during storage and the GIPro w/ATRE is drawing 5.8mA (.0058 amp). How do I change it to have zero power draw when the bike is off? I'm worried ab
A:
First, a .0058 amp power draw is so minimal that it would take over a month to drain your battery. However, the solution to ANY power draw from a GIPro is to connect the GIPro red wire to a switched power lead, such as the hot wire of the license plate light or hot wire of the rear brake light switch. The GIPro will work fine from a switched power lead, and won't consume any power with the ignition turned off.
GIPro w/ATRE
62
Q:
My dealer installed a GIPro/ATRE on my Suzuki TL1000R. It is starting to misread in just 2nd and 3rd gears. How do I have the unit re-learn the gears. I recall the directions talked about this but I threw them away and now I don't know how to do it.
A:
With the ignition switch ON and engine switch set to RUN, with the side stand in the UP position, the display SHOULD indicate proper gears if the unit itself is working correctly. Please run through the gears and check this first. If it is not working correctly, follow these steps to execute the auto-learning procedure;
1. Either use a stand or sit on the bike as you will need the kick stand in the UP position.
2. With the engine switch set to RUN, activate the display by turning the ignition switch to ON. (Do NOT start the engine)
3. Select neutral.
4. Press the button and keep depressing it until 'L' (Learning) appears on the display.
5. Release the button. If the gearbox is properly set in neutral, the 'L' starts blinking and auto-learn procedure starts.
6. After a few seconds, the next gear to be learned will start blinking (1-2-3-4-5-6). Move the shifter into the gear indicated (ex, click down for 1st). The display will blink 'L' while the new gear is being learned. Wait until it displays the next gear it wants to learn and move the shift lever to that gear, and repeat until all gears are learned.

NOTE: If you make an error, press the button once, then start over at step #3 above.

7. If all six gears have been correctly learned, 'U' (Updated) will blink on the display for a few seconds. The unit saves the gear positions to flash memory, and the display goes back to normal operation.
GIPro DS Series
63
Q:
How does the GIPro DS work?
A:
The unit reads directly from the ECU to determine gear position. The amount of data sent to the ECU varies from bike to bike. Thus the GIPro-DS works better on some bikes than others. Only Suzuki (and a few Kawasaki models) have a true gear position sensor. On these bikes the unit will indicate correct gear at all times. On bikes without a gear position sensor (Honda and most Kawasaki) the unit will indicate the correct gear when the engine is running and the clutch is released. And the display lag is much shorter than on competing products.

Q:
My bike is not supported. Do you make a gear indicator for bikes that do not have a gear position sensor OR a diagnostic systems port?
A:
Your bike would use the GIPro X-Type (universal) which has a wide application list of plug-and-tap models, and using the WSS kit (wheel speed sensor) the X-Type can work with any bike with 2 wheels and electronic ignition.

65
Q:
What should I use to clean the GIPro display?
A:
The LED display is protected by a plexiglass element. To avoid scratching, wipe it clean with a wet sponge or non-abrasive material. and do not dry with a coarse dry cloth. The unit is waterproof, but avoid spraying high pressure water directly on the display.

Q:
I see both the GIPro/ATRE and GIPro-DS available for my bike (K4 GSXR1000). Which one should I buy?
A:
Get the GIPro/ATRE if you want improved performance with the gear indicator function. Get the GIPro-DS if you aren't concerned with power but want the most compact possible gear indicator.

67
Q:
What is the size of the display?
A:
The display portion of the kit is 20mm wide by 30mm tall by 15mm deep. (8/10 inch by 1 1/8 inch by 5/8 inch)

68
Q:
I have a TRE module on my Suzuki. Will it interfere with the GIPro DS kit?
A:
The GIPro-DS will not work if a TRE module is installed. If you want to go that route, check if a GIPro w/ATRE is available for your bike model.
GIPro DS Series
69
Q:
My bike has a racing ECU. Will it interfere with your product?
A:
Racing ECU's usually do not have a diagnostic function, so the GIPro-DS does not work on most of them (ex. Honda HRC ECU or Harley-Davidson RaceTune ECU). However, it DOES work with the Ducati Performance DP ECU.

Q:
Regarding the connection point for the Gipro unit on a 1098 Ducati, does it plug into the DDA connector port under the rear pilion seat section? Furthermore, if this is the connection point is the Gipro loom supplied with the unit fitted with a secondary
A:
This one is simple. Yes, and Yes!

71
Q:
I have a Honda FI Model (F4i). Why is this model not supported?
A:
Honda and Kawasaki did not make first generation FI bikes with a diagnostics system, which of course is required to be able to use the GIPro-DS kit.
GIPro DS Series
72
Q:
I have a 2001 VFR800FI, but you only list the 2003+ bike. What gives?
A:
It seems that several bike models got the DS function around 2003, and that is the case with the VFR800. Be sure to check HealTech's application listing before buying an GIPro model to make sure it's correct for your bike.

Q:
Can you tell me where the KDS [Kawasaki Diagnostic Systems] port is on the 2005 ZX-10R?
A:
It's at the fusebox, under the seat.
GIPro DS Series
74
Q:
I have a bike that shows it can use EITHER the GIPro DS or the GIPro X-Type. I see the X-Type is $20 cheaper. Why would I want to use the DS Series?
A:
Both the GIpro DS and X-type will work fine. The difference is in the installation. For the DS you need to connect one plug only under the seat. For the X-type you need to splice 4 wires, as we do not have a plug-n-tap GPX harness for this bike. This is why recommend the DS in our Product Advisor.
GIPro DS Series
75
Q:
Why are there no Yamaha bikes on the DS Series application list?
A:
To date, no Yamaha bikes have the Diagnostic System connector.
GIPro DS Series
76
Q:
I have a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard C90T. Where can I find the diagnostic systems (DS) port on this bike?
A:
The Suzuki Diagnostic Systems connector is a big, white, 6-pole (6p) plug and normally has a dummy (no wires) female plug attached to it. We have determined that on your bike, it's not under the seat. Rather, it is up front behind the steering yoke.

77
Q:
I installed this item and I'm pleased with its performance, but in bright daylight I have trouble seeing the display.
A:
Only the GIPro/ATRE has adjustable brightness. The DS Series is set to fairly bright all the time, but we know that direct sunlight can always wash out any LED display. The best option is to find a spot which is in shade much of the time, so mounting under a gauge cluster usually works best. The RED and BLUE displays are brightest. Green and white are most pale. Yellow is in between.

Q:
I recently ordered a GI Pro gear indicator model #GPDS-K02 for a 2009 KawasakiZ1000 and shipping in a timely matter and customer service were top notch. The question I have is, I installed the unit and it was pretty much plug and play, very easy. My conce
A:
Yes, this is normal. The explanation is in the Manual: http://www.healtech-electronics.com/docs/GPDS-K02_Manual_en.pdf under 'Known limitations': Your bike is not equipped with Gear Position Sensor, therefore determining the gear in use is only possible when the engine is running and the clutch is released. The GPDS-K02 model reads the Gear Position information from the bike ECU. However, due to lack of GP sensor on the Z1000, the ECU does not know the correct gear position when the clutch is pulled in and incorrect gear may be shown until you release the clutch.

79
Q:
I received & installed my GlPro DS gear position indicator on my 2011 Z1000. When the bike is turned on it counts 1-6...then is followed by a flashing 'F' ? I tried the custom install...turning on/off 6 times...an 'L' was displayed followed directly by a
A:
'F' means communication fault, the unit is not able to communicate with the ECU. Please disconnect the GPDS plug and check for loose or bent connector pin. Check and make sure the connector pins are perfectly straight. Sometimes it's difficult to notice that the pins are not aligned properly. Spray some contact cleaner, e.g. WD40 into the plugs. The plug should lock into place smoothly, without effort. After connection, make sure all terminals stay in place.

80
Q:
I have a GPDS gear indicator fitted to CBR1000RR (2008). We have reset set it about 8 times and it goes to a bar- soon as we select 1st gear.
A:
If the setup is OK with the GPDS-H01 but after the setup the display shows '-' sign only, it means the clutch switch does not work, or the ECU does not detect the clutch position. If the clutch switch was disabled by purpose, it's best to restore it as it was, otherwise the ECU will use a neutral map. A much better option is to ground the starter relay wire or jumper the side stand switch (if the side stand was removed).
GIPro X-Type
81
Q:
How do I program this unit?
A:
The GIPro X-Type is completely auto learning, with no buttons or programming wire. Just go through the gears and you're done!

85
Q:
My bike does not have a Gear Position Sensor (GPS) or a Diagnostics System (DS) port. So I understand that I need to use the X-Type GIPro. But I have a bike with a cable drive speedo. How does this work?
A:
With a cable drive speedo, there is no speed sensor for the unit to connect to for a speed reading. You will need to order the GPX-WSS harness (Wheel Speed Sensor), which basically works with ANY BIKE that has two wheels and electronic ignition (to provide an RPM signal).
GIPro X-Type
86
Q:
Since my bike doesn't have a gear position sensor, how does this unit display the gear?
A:
The GIPro X-Type uses an algorithm to calculate speed-to-rpm, and with modern processor and sophisticated firmware, this unit displays the correct gear quickly and accurately. Note that it can only display the correct gear when the clutch is fully released. At other times (clutch pulled in, engine not running, bike stopped) the display will show a '-' sign. The GIPro will not show an incorrect gear in any circumstance, except for a split second when the clutch is released slowly (slipped) during a back shift.
GIPro X-Type
87
Q:
How does the shift light work?
A:
It is possible to program this unit to indicate when the desired RPM is reached for a shift. The unit will be flashing a 'U' (UP) rapidly above a pre-set RPM. The feature is intelligent, as it does not show the sign in top gear.

- 1. Park the bike and turn the ignition ON. (if the bike is already on, cycle the ignition key).
2. Start the engine in neutral. Warm the engine if necessary (Do NOT move the bike from a stopped position)
3. Gradually and slowly increase the RPM, and keep it in a range approx. 3-4x your idle speed (so hold it between 3000-4000 RPM). As a guide, the display will show '-' (top horizontal bar) sign when you keep the RPM in the correct range.
4. Hold the RPM for about 5 seconds, until 'C' (Clear) is blinking on the display.
5. While 'C' is blinking, raise the RPM slowly. The display is now blinking a 'U' sign, indicating the shift light learning is in process. The unit is learning the highest RPM.
5. Stop raising the RPM at the desired spot, hold it for one full second, and then release the throttle.
6. To complete, you can just start riding, stop the engine, or just turn the bike off. It will save your settings.
GIPro X-Type
88
Q:
Does every bike have a wire coming from the stator that can be tapped for RPM signal if there is no tach?
A:
Yes, all bikes have a signal which can be used as an RPM source for the X-type (normally the pickup coil wire coming from the generator), it's not a problem that the bike does not have a tach. For most bikes we list the recommended wire color for the RPM source. If a bike is not listed you can contact HealTech for advice.
GIPro X-Type
89
Q:
I have a 2009 Yamaha FZ6R and had a GIPro installed by my dealer. The bike has 6 gears, but in 6th gear the unit is displaying a 5. What is wrong?
A:
Sounds like the setup was not performed successfully. Please Reset the unit and then Setup again. You'll find instructions in the manual: http://www.healtech-electronics.com/docs/GPX_UsersGuide_en.pdf
Note: As soon as the unit asks for the 6th gear during setup (6 is flashing) shift to 6th. Otherwise, if you do not shift for a few seconds, the unit assumes the bike has only 5 gears and will quit from setup. If you do the setup on a stand and once again it fails, please perform the setup on the road. The rear wheel jumps a lot when on stand (no load on the wheel, chain wear is uneven) and it may be a reason for the setup problem.
X-TRE
90
Q:
I have a Speedo Healer and Power Commander on my bike. Will the X-TRE work with these?
A:
Yes. There is no interaction with the SpeedoHealer. The X-TRE will actually help a Power Commander as follows:

1) The PC can only remap ONE ECU gear. The X-TRE locks the ECU map into using the unrestricted map, no matter which gear is selected.

2) The PC can only adjust fuel curve, while the X-TRE disables the timing retard.

3) The X-TRE disables the speed limiter on 1000cc Suzukis while the PC cannot.
X-TRE
91
Q:
Do I have to remap the PCIII after installing the X-TRE?
A:
No. The PCIII (PC3) was mapped in 4th gear, where the X-TRE has no effect.
X-TRE
92
Q:
I have an ingntion advancer modulule. Can I still use an X-TRE?
A:
Yes! The X-TRE does not alter the ignition timing...it simply forces the ECU to use the best gear map in all gears. This is why the X-TRE works well with any ignition advancer and/or fuel injection module.
X-TRE
93
Q:
How do I the TRE mode currently in use on an X-TRE?
A:
Do the following;
1. Select 1st gear
2. Have the ignition key in OFF position, stop switch in RUN position, and side stand up
3. Turn ignition ON
4. The gear indicator will show the map in use (4, 5, or 6) for a few seconds, then return to its normal operation.
X-TRE
94
Q:
Do I need to do anything to the X-TRE after disconnecting/reconnecting my bike's battery?
A:
No. Any settings are stored in flash memory.
X-TRE
95
Q:
What is "buttonless design?
A:
Since this unit mounts under the fuel tank which is difficult to reach easily, we have designed the control interface in a way where reviewing and changing TRE modes is possible when sitting on the bike. You simply follow a simple sequence and operate the shift lever, ignition key, and RUN switch. The method works with quick shifters too. There is visual confirmation of the selected mode through the in-dash gear indicator. Further, there is a status LED on the X-TRE box itself which is quite useful to determine which wire has poor contact in case of a problem.
X-TRE
96
Q:
How do I select a TRE mode?
A:
- Select 4th, 5th, or 6th gear depending on the map you'd like to set.
- Have the ignition key in OFF position, stop switch in RUN position, and side stand UP.
- Turn ignition ON.
- The gear indicator will show the new map (4, 5, or 6) for a few seconds, then it will blink once. The setting is stored, and the gear indicator will work normally.

Recommended settings;
6th - GSXR600, GSR600, GSX650
5th - GSXR750, GSXR1000, Hayabusa
4th - B-King

You can, of course, try different settings and see how it works for you. (e.g. by selecting map 5 or 6 for the B-King, the RPM limiter will trigger earlier in all gears, which may be useful during break-in period)
The unit retains the stored setting when the battery is removed or disconnected.
X-TRE
97
Q:
How do I restore the factory default condition on my bike?
A:
Follow these steps in order;
1. Disconnect the 4p plug from the X-TRE box, and connect the jumper plug supplied to the harness connector
2. Disconnect the 3p plugs from the box, and connect the bike connectors together
3. You can now remove the box from the bike, and factory condition is restored.
X-TRE
98
Q:
I installed an X-TRE on a 2008 Hayabusa, but while neutral shows up on my dash gear indicator, the other gear positions do not. What is wrong?
A:
Check and see if you see "0" in neutral on the gear indicator, or it stays blank and only the green neutral light is lit?

1) Maybe the 3-pole XTRE plugs are connected to the wrong plugs (there are more which look the same).
Check: The Neutral indicator should NOT be lit with disconnected GP Sensor coupler.

2) Please go through the install steps again, maybe a simple step was overlooked.

3) If nothing helps, restore factory condition by using the jumper plug supplied and contact the manufacturer for more support.
X-TRE
99
Q:
I have installed an X-TRE on my 2009 GSXR1000 but it will only give an indication of 4th gear. I think I have followed the instructions step by step and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
A:
Based on your description, the problem is likely one of the following:
- You did not cut the ECM wire, or
- the wrong ECM wire was cut, or
- there is another TRE box installed.

You need to cut the ECM wire as per the XTRE Manual: http://www.healtech-electronics.com/docs/XTRE_S01_Manual_en.pdf
OBD Tool
100
Q:
Will the OBD tool turn off the steering damper? As a dealer I spend a lot of money on factory test equipment but if the OBD tool will cover everything the factory tool does, I can save a lot of money by using your product.
A:
Yes, for testing the OBD tool can turn off the steering damper. However, even with the factory test equipment, the OBD protocol does not allow any permanent changes with the tool. So our OBD tool has the same limitations as the factory tool from Suzuki, but for 75% less cost, lifetime free updates, and lifetime warranty.
OBD Tool
101
Q:
Is there going to be a Healtech OBD Tool coming out for my Yamaha FZ1?
A:
No. Yamaha bikes do not have a diagnostic connector, so we cannot make an OBD tool for that brand.
OBD Tool
102
Q:
I am working on a 2007 GSXR1000. The software shows idle arrows for up and down, but when clicking to change, a new tab comes up with error message: 'in-executable to ECM'.
A:
If the error message comes up, it means the ECM refuses the command. Perhaps the engine temperature is not sufficient to execute this Active test.
OBD Tool
103
Q:
How does a mechanic set the idle speed on a Suzuki bike?
A:
Earlier Suzuki bikes have an idle adjustment screw. Late model Suzukis (like the K7) have an ISC valve and it is NOT possible to change the idle speed in any way. If the idle speed is out of spec, the ISC valve operation should be checked. The OBD Tool can change idle only while connected. The OEM Suzuki tool can not change the idle speed either.
FI Tuner Pro
104
Q:
I see fuel injection tuning modules talk about being 'load based' claiming to be superior to map based tuners. Why isn't the FI Tuner Pro a load-based module?
A:
Calling something 'load based' sounds good, but it is not superior to map based tuning. Here is our take;

All bike ECUs are MAP based. To fix the ECU fuel map (re-map) in all areas, you need a product which works on the same principle as the ECU, i.e. a MAP based product. We cannot stress enough this point enough.
- There's no such kind of sensor in the bike like a 'load sensor'. A bike has a throttle position sensor (TPS) and RPM signal. Hence the best correction possible is a TPS/RPM fuel map.
- There's a reason no one in serious racing uses a 'load based' module.
- There's a reason serious dyno centers do not carry and install 'load based' modules.


They say that traditional TPS/RPM based system do not take the load into account. This is NOT true. Think about this:
- To keep a steady speed (light load) you need (for example) 10% TPM at 6000 RPM
- To accelerate (heavy load) you need (for example) 100% TPS at 6000 RPM

So the bike ECU and the FIT Pro knows exactly what the engine load is at any given time, and re-maps the ECU fuel map in real time.
FI Tuner Pro
105
Q:
You say the FI Tuner Pro can subtract fuel also, not just add it. Why is subtracting fuel important?
A:
Even with a racing exhaust, there are several places of the fuel map where fuel subtraction is needed for optimal AFR and best performance. Most bikes have bumps and dips in the fuel curve. The BEST fuel curve is the most linear curve, but products like the Dynojet PC modules can only bring up the dips it does nothing for the bumps. Having bumps above linear baseline leaves the bike feeling like it has 'flat spots' versus being as smooth.
FI Tuner Pro
106
Q:
What kind of performance gain can I expect with an FI Tuner Pro?
A:
The Air-Fuel Ratio on most bikes are fairly good at peak power (100% throttle and high RPM) from the factory (let's face it, they all want to be the most powerful-in-class), hence you can expect only a few HP gain at peak.
However, at about 95% of the fuel table the AFR is really off and this is why the FIT module with proper map improves:
- On/off throttle response
- Engine response at all RPM range
- Low and mid-range torque and power
- Acceleration
- Precision
- Smooth power delivery, drivability
Brake Light Pro
107
Q:
How many light bulbs will work with this unit?
A:
The BLP operates at 120V maximum load. Motorcycle lights are from 15-25W each. So you'll generally run no more than 4-6 bulbs off one BLP unit.
Brake Light Pro
108
Q:
Where do I mount the Brake Light Pro?
A:
On motorcycles, it's simplest to make the connection under the seat, closer to the fuse box.
GIPro X-Type
109
Q:
I installed a GIPro X-Type gear indicator on my 07 Honda 1300S motorcycle last September. Everything worked as expected. The bike was garaged over the winter. When I next rode the bike, the gear indicator indicates the correct gear but the numerals flash instead of lighting steadily. I didn't change anything, but now the indicator flashes in every gear except 1st. What do I need to do?
A:
If the display blinks, it means you have accidentally activated the HSW or Shift Light feature.

You can disable that as per the manual, chapter 8:
http://www.healtech-electronics.com/docs/GPX_UsersGuide_en.pdf

If this happens again, please do this:

1) Reset the unit.

2) Wait until the engine cools down completely.

3) Setup the unit with COLD engine, so the idle speed is HIGHER than normal (about 2000 RPM) during the setup process. Alternatively, the idle speed can be raised by using the idle adjustment screw for the setup.

110
Q:
I have a GPDS-H01 on a 2008 CBR1000RR. I have reset it several times but it goes to a bar "-" when I select 1st gear. What's wrong?
A:
If the setup worked fine but after setup the display shows only the "-", it means the clutch switch does not work, or the ECU does not detect the clutch position.

If the clutch position was disabled on purpose, it's best to restore it, otherwise the ECU will use a neutral map. A much better option is to ground the starter relay wire or jumper the side stand switch (if the side stand was removed).

If you are not sure about the clutch switch operation, email info@healtech-electronics.com and I will send you more information on how to test it.
GIPro w/ATRE
111
Q:
I am installing a GIPro K02 on a 2006 ZX-10R with a Bazzaz controller. I need to know which of the GIPro plugs (with red wire or green wire) is the input from the bike to the GIPro, and which is output back to the bike.
A:
On the GIPRO-K02, the White is the signal input and Green is signal output.
GIPro DS Series
112
Q:
I have a 2007 C50 Boulevard. I see your website says the C90T has the connector behind the steering yoke. Is it the same on my bike?
A:
On this bike the 6p white plug is behind the right frame cover, at the ECU.
GIPro DS Series
113
Q:
I have a 2005 CBR1000RR changed to GP shift. I reset the GIPro per the instructions and now it's doing this blinking then #1 then letter C then #3. What's wrong?
A:
1-C-3 is simply showing the firmware version after a reset, and happens after a reset is done twice.

At this point the unit is clear (it was clear after the first time you reset it), and now you should perform the setup/learning procedure going through the gears per the manual.
X-TRE
114
Q:
I have a 2006 GSXR1000 with an X-TRE. I'm sure it's installed correctly, but now my in-dash gear indicator won't work and my odometer says "CHEC". I'm confused about the troubleshooting steps 5 and 6. #5 seems to say the light should be ON and #6 seems to say the light should be OFF. Can you help?
A:
If everything APPEARS connected correctly, then maybe one of the yellow quick connector is not in fact making good contact.
We'd recommend you remove this and make the splice without it.

About the troubleshooting, the key point is to perform the steps in the order listed.

When everything is OK, the XTRE LED blinks once at power up, then remains OFF. If the LED stays ON or does not light up at all, perform the step described.

Healtech has updated this part of the X-TRE manual to clarify this protocol.
Speedohealer
115
Q:
I have a Triumph tiger 800 (2011) and bought a SpeedoHealer and T02 wire harness. I pulled the gas tank and could not find a plug that would fit the wire harness. There is a wire harness under the tank with a similar looking connector but it is only two wires instead of three. I noticed that the Tiger 1050 requires a different wire harness and wondered if the other wire harness would work(T-01)? I did look closely with a flash light and am sure there is not a three wire plug that will fit the T02 wire ha
A:
Please note, the SH-T02 is not a direct fit connector. As per the
instructions, you need to pop out the terminals from the bike plugs and insert the terminals into the supplied 3 pole plugs. Then you can connect the SH wiring harness.

When you find it, disconnect the connector and verify that the speedometer shows zero with spinning wheels.
GIPro X-Type
116
Q:
I have a 2003 HD Sportster 1200 C Custom. It seems that the 1200 Sport has a data port but Harley left it out of the Custom wiring harness.I downloaded the install guide for the GPX-HA1 harness kit and have located the speed sensor coupler. On the wiring diagram in the Harley shop manual there is no crankshaft position sensor instead there is a cam position sensor that has a Pink wire to a six position coupler and an option line to a tachometer.Does this sound correct?
A:
We'd recommend you use the cam position sensor wire.
For testing, you can use a thin needle and back probe the connector pin to make a quick temporary connection. Then start the engine and see if the unit receives the RPM signal, as per the install guide.

The User's Guide can be opened from this link:

Q:
I am confused about the RPM wire colors for the Hayabusa when installing the GPX-S01 kit. It seems like the different years have different colors. Can you help?
A:
On the Hayabusa till 2004, Green is the correct color at BOTH sides of the connector.

On the Hayabusa 05-07, Green is the correct wire at the main wiring harness side of the connector, but it's BLUE at the sensor side of the connector.

So the wire changes color at the connector.

Q:
I have a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z. I want to use a gear indicator and I was told I can use the GIPro X-Type with the U01 Universal harness. How do I connect it?
A:
Many Super Tenere owners have the GIpro installed so I can confirm it will work fine.

The instructions below are specific to the XT1200Z, using the GPX-U01 kit:

-------------------------------------------
1) Connect the GPX White wire to the speed signal wire:
Blue wire (no stripe) at the ECU connector (NOT at the ABS wheel sensors!)

2) Connect the GPX Black/Green wire to the RPM signal wire:
Gray wire at the ECU connector, or at the 2-pole black Crankshaft sensor connector (located near the battery terminals).

3) Connect the GPX Red wire to a switched power lead:
e.g. to the Red/White ECU wire

4) Connect the GPX Black wire to:
chassis ground or battery negative terminal

Use to supplied wire tap connectors to make the connections (no need to cut or solder the wires).

Please do the testing as per the GPX-U01 install guide:

Q:
I have a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z. I want install a SpeedoHealer and I was told to use the U01 Universal kit, but I was told my bike has a special installation procedure. Can you help?
A:
The XT1200Z does not have a speed sensor at the gearbox, it has ABS wheel sensors only. This is why it's very different from most bike models.

Since we do not want to modify the signal of the ABS wheel sensors, it is not possible to make a plug-n-go kit for this bike.

The ABS computer processes the wheel sensor signals and then it sends a speed information to the dashboard through the ECU. So it is safe to catch and calibrate the speed signal at the ECU connector. It won't interfere with the ABS or TC functions in any way.

Here are the installation steps for the XT1200Z:

-----------------------------------------------
1) Cut the solid Blue wire (no stripe), about 2" away from the ECU connector.

2) Connect the SH Green wire to the Blue wire end at the ECU connector side.

3) Connect the SH White wire to the Blue wire end at the main wiring harness side.

4) Connect the GPX Red wire to a switched power lead:
e.g. to the Red/White ECU wire

5) Connect the GPX Black wire to:
chassis ground or battery negative terminal

GIPro DS Series
120
Q:
I have a GIPro-DS on a DL650 V-Strom. I was unable to get my bike to start after towing it through a heavy rainstorm. My dealer says my problem was the GIPro, and when they disconnected it the bike started fine. Could the unit have shorted out?
A:
We've never received a report of this type before. The GPDS is completely waterproof...it will work even when submerged (you can test it...you won't void the warranty).

Unless the the GPDS connector was somehow really wet under the seat (like water was allowed to pool UNDER the seat, we can't see how this can possibly be related to the rain storm.
FI Tuner Pro
121
Q:
I'm mapping my FI Tuner Pro on a TL1000R with a slip on exhaust and aftermarket race exhaust. In the FIT software comments section it says "NOTE: Calibrate RPM". What do I need to do beyond just loading the map?
A:
Set the "Pulse p. rev" parameter at the RPM calibration window to "8". (Double check this with the downloaded software manual)

FYI, on most bikes the default "1" value works, but there are bikes where the RPM calibration value must be changed.
You can refer the customer to the FIT Manual, chapter 3.3 step 2:

Start the engine and verify that the RPM indication on the screen is about the same as shown on the bike’s rev counter at idle speed. Otherwise, change the “Pulse p. rev” value under the “RPM calibration” box until you see the correct value on screen.
GIPro DS Series
122
Q:
I bought your product for my 2009 Ducati 848 (GPDS-D01). Now I have a CBR1000RR (2005). I love this unit and want to use it on my Honda. Can I just chop off the plugs and splice it onto my Honda's ECU DS port?
A:
No. Each brand of bike has a different signal type so the actual firmware is different in the microprocessor. So while you could cut plugs off a Honda CBR1000RR and make it work on a Goldwing, you can't use a GPDS from a Ducati on a Honda motorcycle.
X-TRE
123
Q:
I have a 2011 ZX-10R. Can I use the X-TRE on my bike?
A:
No. The 2011-up ZX-10R has a proprietary CAN-bus system and it is not possible to install an X-TRE on this bike. To get the same effect, you would install a GIPro K02 kit, which has the advanced TRE built into the external gear indicator.
FI Tuner Pro
124
Q:
What is the reason for disabling the exhaust servo with your Tuner? I dont recall my PCIII instructing me to do so on my first GSXR...only reason i ask is that a lot of the 1000 guys on the forum say NOT to disconnect the servo as you lose too much low/mid range torque... would it be okay to run your tuner with the servo still active?? what are the pluses and minuses of this??
A:
Normally, if proper mapping is applied in all TPS/RPM ranges AND noise/emission is not a concern, it's best to disable the exhaust valve.

This will require more fuel at low RPMs but performance will be increased and the engine will pull smoother all the way. Having it removed also allows for more power above 7000RPM than the OEM "full open" setting: http://www.bugmanweb.com/gsxr/gsxrfiles/setvalvearticle.jpg

If someone wants to keep the exhaust valve, the Lambda control wire (from the FIT instructions) should not be cut but an O2 Sensor eliminator should be connected.
OBD Tool
125
Q:
I was looking a purchasing the OBD Tool for my CRF250 since it is listed on your website as compatible. I wanted to verify that it would plug into my bike before ordering since I haven't heard of anyone else using this on the CRF. Like in the instructions I found a red 4 pin connector (the DLC?), however, it connects the fuel pump to the main harness. If I plug in the OBD Tool instead of the fuel pump then the bike will obviously not run. Do I have the right connector and I need to make some kind of j
A:
Yes, you found the correct plug.

On this bike, unfortunately, Honda chose to save a $1 and used the same plug for two functions. We'd recommend to connect the OBD tool, and temporarily power the fuel pump through spare wires.

Alternatively, Healtech can make and send you an Y splitter for $9 shipped by airmail from Europe.
FI Tuner Pro
126
Q:
I'm the owner of ********* and dyno services. We're currently working on a 08 GSXR 600. It has one of your FI Tuner boxes on it. I'm very anxious to get into tuning this bike with your system It looks like it'll be a nice replacement for the Power Commanders. I have a question for you. I noticed in your instructions that there is no emulator needed to eliminate the O2 sensor. Is there something in the program that negates the O2 readings. Or are you modifying the fuel ratio table? Also, what would you do
A:
All fuel management systems require you to bypass the factory O2 sensors. Other makers recommend you install an eliminator for this purpose.

However, on Suzuki bikes there's a secret wire to disable the sensors. It's not documented in the Suzuki service manuals.
Cutting this wire instructs the ECU to ignore the O2 sensors.
In the FIT instructions we describe which wire to cut.
MultiMeter-5
127
Q:
How does the lap time activate?
A:
The laptimer works with manual trigger. The rider has to push the remote button when passing the finish line. We may release an optional IR-based or GPS-based trigger module for automatic triggering if there's strong demand for the product.
MultiMeter-5
128
Q:
What is the backlight color?
A:
The standard LED backlight color is cold white/light blue. We may release more backlight colors if there's strong demand for the product.
MultiMeter-5
129
Q:
What vehicles will this work on?
A:
This really works on all vehicles, regardless of engine type (diesel or petrol). This also includes snowmobiles, tractors, trucks, planes, lawnmowers, etc.
MultiMeter-5
130
Q:
How is it powered?
A:
The power lead of the unit can be connected to either permanent live wire or to a switched power lead, depending on how the user wants to use the voltage min/max display and timer functions.

When the unit is powered from a permanent live wire, the backlight shut off voltage level can be adjusted to ensure low standby current.
Speedohealer
131
Q:
I have a Kawasaki Ninja 300 and I bought the SpeedoHealer SHV4-U01 kit. I found the ground wire, but I don't know how which remaining wires are power and signal. Can you help?
A:
It's simplest to find the power wire, then you know the remaining wire is the signal wire...

With the speed sensor connected, switch your multimeter to DC 20V position.
Connect the black meter probe to a known good chassis ground (i.e. frame,
engine block, etc). Turn the ignition ON. With the red meter probe, test each of
the wires (touching either through the back of the plug, or by probing through
the insulation). When you locate the wire with constant +5V to +12V DC
voltage, this is the POWER wire that will connect to the RED SpeedoHealer
wire
GIPro w/ATRE
132
Q:
You've told me you think I have a bad gear position sensor on my Suzuki because the GIPro w/ATRE unit is jumping around between the gears even after I reset it and did the relearning procedure. How do I test for a bad GP sensor?
A:
It seems that we're seeing more bad GP sensors showing up in recent years on Suzuki motorcycles after only a few years of ownership, although of course people who put a lot of miles (with a lot of shifting, not just 6th gear highway miles) on their bikes certainly accelerate the wear on any GP sensor.

Here is how you test for a bad GP sensor:

Preparation:
- Turn ignition Off
- Secure the bike on a stand
- Disconnect the GIpro connectors and connect the bike plugs together
- The side stand must be in upright position
- The engine stop switch must be in RUN position
- Set your meter in DC 20V setting
- Connect the black meter probe to the negative terminal of battery
- Connect the red meter probe to the Pink wire in the 3-pole bike connector (use a thin needle for backprobing).
- Select Neutral and Turn ignition On
The Neutral indicator should be lit.
The voltage reading should be about +5.0V
- Select 1st gear
The voltage reading should be about 1.8 V
- Select 2nd gear
The voltage reading should be about 2.4 V
- Select 3rd gear
The voltage reading should be about 3.1 V
- Select 4th gear
The voltage reading should be about 3.7 V
- Select 5th gear
The voltage reading should be about 4.4 V
- Select 6th gear
The voltage reading should be about 4.8 V
- Turn ignition Off
If the voltage readings are completely wrong, look for modifications on
the pink wire near the 3-pole connectors and also near the ECU box. Also
check for continuity.
If there are no modifications AND the voltage was ok in Neutral (+5V),
probably the GP sensor is defective.

You can try removing the sensor and checking the contacts. Sometimes that does the trick without having to replace the whole sensor. This is the first thing I'd suggest you try before you replace the sensor.
OBD Tool
133
Q:
Can I do a throttle body sync on a 2009 GSXR 1000 with your OBD Tool?
A:
Yes. Before you start to sync the throttle bodies, you need to lock
the ISC (Idle Speed Control) valve. This can be done by our OBD
Tool. Select the "Active Test" tab and turn the "ISC air volume
control" to ON. Note that the engine must be running and the
coolant temp should be kept between 80C/176F and 100C/212F.

After the sync, stop the engine, clear any DTCs and then hit the
"ISC learned value reset" button (if you receive a “not supported”
message, refer to the Service Manual for your bike for instructions).
Disconnect the tool and turn ignition Off. Wait at least 10 seconds.
Turn ignition On and start the engine. Let it idle for 1 minute.
Speedohealer
134
Q:
I have a Ducati with ABS. The instructions say to email you for instructions on ABS model installation.
A:
To install the SHV4-U01 kit on a Ducati with ABS, you need to splice 4 wires.

***IMPORTANT***The speed signal should be tapped AFTER the ABS computer, so the SpeedoHealer will calibrate the speedometer only, it won't interfere with the ABS functions.


1) Leave the wheel sensor connectors in stock condition.


2) Cut the solid Green wire, either at the ABS computer connector (pin #3) or at the ECU connector. This is the speed signal wire to
the ECU.


3) Splice the SH Green wire to the Green wire end which goes to the ECU module.


4) Splice the SH White wire to the Green wire end which goes to the ABS module.


5) Connect the SH Black wire to chassis ground.


6) Splice the SH Red wire to any +12V switched power lead, e.g. at the fusebox.

135
Q:
I have a Ducati 848 and I could not find a diagnostics plug under my tail cover. How do I plug this in?
A:
We have received a few reports from Ducati 848 owners that they could not find the diagnostic plug under their tail cover.

It appears a short cable is missing on SOME of the 848 bikes.

You should request the missing cable from their Ducati dealer. Normally they should not charge anything for what should come on the bike, but it may vary depending on dealer and location (we can't speak for what dealers will do).

Speedohealer
136
Q:
I have a 2013 Honda CB1100, but the speed sensor is a 2-wire sensor. How do I use the 3-wire universal Speedohealer with my bike?
A:
The SHV4-U01 kit does not connect at the speed sensor on your bike, as your machine has an ABS wheel speed sensor and we do not want to interfere with that functionality.

All connections take place at the dashboard connector:

1) Connect the SH Red wire to: Black/Brown wire

2) Connect the SH Black wire to: Green wire

3) Cut the Pink/Green (speed signal) wire, about 2" away from the dash connector.

4) Connect the SH Green wire to the Pink/Green wire end at the dash connector side.

5) Connect the SH White wire to the Pink/Green wire end at the main wiring harness side.

6) Do the testing as per the SH-U01 install guide:

Shift Light Pro
137
Q:
What dimension is the Shift Light Pro?
A:
it is extremely compact at 30 x 20 x 13 mm. In fact, with the SMD eye allowing for RGB color all in one unit, it's the most compact shift light available.
Shift Light Pro
138
Q:
What do you mean by "sequential" or "progressive' shift light?
A:
This means that you can set the SLP for multiple RPM thresholds, with different warning levels. In other words, you can have it be solid to flashing color at one RPM level, flashing at a higher RPM level, etc, in sequence, or progressive from lower to higher RPM level. It's extremely handy for accuracy in finding optimal shift points for racing and performance riding/driving.

139
Q:
Can I print a frame from the OBD software?
A:
This feature was recently added to the OBD Tool (Spring 2014).

It can now print a frame from the recorded file during playback to PDF file, so dealers can print the error codes, sensor values etc. for their customers.

Dealers can even add their company logo to the prints (the procedure is described under the FAQ button in the software).

GIPro X-Type
141
Q:
I have a single cylinder engine, with no crankshaft and no tach gauge. Where should I be tapping for RPM signal, and where do I find the wire?
A:
Even single cylinder engines have a crankshaft sensor, although sometimes it's not obvious on diagrams.

You can often find a pickup sensor at the AC magneto and you should trace the cable from there.
On some model years, this had a wire going to the CDI unit so that's what I would try first.
Use a thin needle to backprobe the connector pin and see if the GIpro responds.

The second option is to use the ignition coil wire (CDI side), but generally the pickup gives a cleaner signal.
GIPro X-Type
142
Q:
I see I cannot use the GIPro DS-Series on my 2012 Triumph Speed Triple ABS. How do I install the X-Type kit with wheel speed sensor on my bike?
A:
The wheel speed sensor installs on the back wheel of your bike, usually mounting off the rear brake caliper bracket. See this photo of one installed on your bike:
http://www.bluemonkeymotorsports.com/gpx/images/WSS-SpeedTripleABS_2011.jpg

It's important to position the sensor such a way that it reads the targets (either holes or screw heads) which are spaced precisely
at equal distance from each other.
Then perform the speed signal test to make sure the sensor picks up the targets correctly.
I'd recommend to start with a larger airgap and get closer as needed.

The second image shows the RPM wire to tap on the Speed Triple:

GIPro X-Type
143
Q:
Does the GIPro X-Type have any parasitic power draw when the bike is sitting for long periods in my garage?
A:
Both the GPDS-H02 and GPX-H02 power down completely when the ignition key is turned off. If the display does not show any sign, you can be 100% sure it does not get and does not consume any power. You can verify it with an amp meter.

Speedohealer
145
Q:
I installed a Speedohealer on my AN650 Burgman and it's messing with my RPM and shift points. What's wrong?
A:
For some odd reason, there are reports of a few Burgman models that experience this issue when altering speed signal (even though it's being corrected). Here is the fix.

SPEEDOHEALER MOD FOR SUZUKI BURGMAN:
------------------------------------------------
In a nutshell, this is what need to be done:- Leave the SH harness connected at the speed sensor plug
- Route the original (uncalibrated) speed signal to the CVT control unit
(not the ECM).

Detailed steps:
1) Gain access to the CVT control unit connector. It is at the front of the bike, above the ECM module.
2) Locate the Pink (or White) at the CVT unit connector.
3) When the wire is found:
- Cut this wire, about 2 inches away from the connector.
- Get a long spare wire, and connect it to the wire end which is at the CVT connector side.
- Isolate the wire end with tape, that remains at the wiring harness side.
- Splice the other end of this spare wire to the SH WHITE wire, which is at the 3-pole SH connector.
Now, everything should work normally and the calibration will not affect the CVT.
Speedohealer
146
Q:
My Speedohealer shows an "E" on the display, but will not go into programming mode. The unit will go into test mode, but when exiting test mode, it just shows "A" and then "E" again. What is wrong with the unit?
A:
If something goes wrong with the TSM button or cable, it will cause an error with the Speedohealer control box. Disconnecting the TSM cable will remove the error. If you need to purchase a TSM cable to replace a damaged one, or to replace one under warranty, contact Blue Monkey Motorsports.
Speedohealer
147
Q:
I have installed a new speedometer/odometer. I need to bring the odometer up to my current mileage. When setting the Speedohealer to +9999.9%, my bike will only read +300% on my odometer. How can I make the Speedohealer override my bike's limitation and quickly add more miles?
A:
I'm not sure what is wrong, the Speedohealer works fine with the 9999% calibration normally. However, instead of looking at the possible causes, here is a better way to "spin" the odometer.


It is possible to "spin" the odo counter with the bike parked (engine off) and SH in test mode. With the SH in test mode, you can send a high speed signal (over 180 mph) so the odo will be increased over 180 miles in an hour.

Here's the procedure:
- Install the kit
- Put the battery on charger (do not remove from the bike)
- Turn the ignition ON and engine stop switch in OFF position
- If the headlight is on, remove the headlight fuse

- Turn the ignition key OFF
- Push the SEL button on the SH box while you turn the ignition ON
- Release the button
Now, a non-zero speed reading should be displayed on the speedometer

- Press the SET button 9 times
Now, the speedometer should indicate a high reading and the odo should count accordingly

- When the desired odo count is reached turn the ignition key OFF

Beware, it is not possible to decrease the odo counter so make sure you stop the process in time.

150
Q:
I understand there is a special installation of the Speedohealer SH-U01 kit on the V-Max. What do I do?
A:
Here is how the SH-U01 connections should be done on the VMax:

1) Find, and cut the White/Yellow (speed signal) wire at the ECU connector.

2) Splice the Green SH wire to the White/Yellow wire end, which is at the ECU box side.

3) Splice the White SH wire to the White/Yellow wire end, which is at the wiring harness side.

4) Splice the Black SH wire to chassis ground, or the negative battery terminal.

5) Splice the Red SH wire to any +12V switched power lead (e.g. around the fusebox), or to the Red/White ECU wire.
