The planet switched to Metric except for USA, UK, Liberian and Myanmar.Just wondering.....as the US gallon is less volume than a UK gallon, does this effect how the brain does its calculations for remaing miles?
Was just thinking, as the statute miles same length in USA and UK, when comparing MPG the American models won’t do as many miles per gallon, is all.The planet switched to Metric except for USA, UK, Liberian and Myanmar.
Even NASA switched to Metric
I think your ECU is programmed for UK gallon if you bought it from UK.
Your gauge is only reading what the ECU is showing.
I might be wrong, but that is my guess.
Installed this exact gauge a few months back on my 2015 Roadster, ordered it directly from the Koso Europe website. Pretty happy with it so far, really cleaned up the dashboard.Meanwhile also found this gauge on a European site.
Now just gotta make my mind up; this or a second clock.
As @dodgybugga has stated way back when this monster-thread started:Now just gotta make my mind up; this or a second clock.
Did you see #136 from dodgybugga in this thread?for those of you that installed Koso digital meter, how did you set up the pins from the gauge.?There is a plastic adapter that looks to help plug into the harness, but the pins from the gauge are loose, and don't easily (or snuggly) fit into the adapter. Last thing I want to do is break the pin.
Thanks @Norbi. You have a great memory!
@Milesdc123, yeah, be wary when working with these plugs and pins. The pins are fragile and they are a pain to get out once you have them locked in and having the documentation that is incorrect doesn't help.
Firstly, make sure you are looking at the latest installation document from the Koso website for the year model for your guage and bike. I'm not sure if DK Design or Koso has corrected the documentation error in the hard-copy paper instructions they are sending out with the guages yet. The correct one has a photo of the plug, not a technical drawing. That will make sure you are putting the correct coloured wire/pin into the correct hole. To make it easier, the blue "blanking" plug/bung goes in the number 6 hole in the bottom right corner of the back of the adaptor (if you look carefully you can see tiny numbers printed on the adaptor). From there you can work out which coloured wire goes in which hole per the instructions.
When inserting the pins you have to make sure you have the correct orientation of the pin to the hole in the adaptor. If you look "through" the hole in the adaptor (helps to have a light behind the adaptor as you are looking through it) you'll notice that there is a small channel above each of the holes on one side. There is a matching raised "blade" on each of the pins. you have to line that blade up with the channel for it to go in properly. You have to use a bit of pressure to get the pins to click in to the adaptor. You will definitely notice the click once they are seated properly/locked in and they go in a fair way before the click happens. Once clicked in they are very snug and don't move at all due to the weatherproofing rubber bung around the back of the pin. Be careful when applying pressure on the pin or wire though as they can bend and be damaged very easily.
If you think you have pushed the pin in as far as it will go and still not heard or felt it click in, it could be that the locking mechanism in the adaptor is open. This is a sliding pastic gate inside the adaptor that is accesible by two plastic tabs visible in the corners of the front face of the adaptor (where the pins eventually poke out). I can't remember if the face of the plug is grey and the tabs are white or vice versa but if you look carefully you can see them. There is one for each row of pins I think. You may have to take a safety pin or something similar to slide it back and forth to open/close the locking mechanism. I'm sorry, but I didn't take a picture of it when I did it. I just know it was a total P.I.T.A. to have to pull the pins out after following the faulty instructions and putting the wrong pins in the wrong holes.
Hope that helps.
The other thing to remember (which I’ve only just remembered) is to not put the pins into the adaptor till after you’ve threaded the cables through the hole in the gauge cover as it will be impossible to do that once the adaptor is attached. That almost caught me out in my over excitement to get the gauge on my bike.
Sorry. I only just saw this.Now that I’m the disassembling phase, do you happen to remember which way you slid the paddles/ what happens next? They are grey and the face is white. They slide left to right. I can move them but that does seem to unlock the pins.
