FWIW, I made my own RFID keyless ignition system up from the systems they sell on Egay ($10) and some relays, diodes and resistors. Might wanna look into it..save some coin on that nice, but pricey system from Motogadget.
Thanks for the info, I had pretty much assumed it would be some pita shit like that, so ill probably have to chop up the handlebars to get the clearance and have oddly wide clamps. Considering its just a fuckload of fab time vs $500 more for the only other gauge I like I'll take the extra work.Just a heads up bud. The LCD on the Vaypor is technicaly 3 screens. Under the outer casing's a clear plastic cover that is the same shape as the top case. Then the display screen and then the LCD and board. The lower casing holds the back up battery in place. The whole thing bolts together and sandwiches itself tight. My cases cracked on mine and now the read out is all screwed up. They have to be tight with even presure all around or the display doesn't work correct. Also the board is the same size as the cases. So shaving down the size is gona be minimal.
I like your idea to try and blend it into the top clamp. I think it'll look pretty clean, but be prepared cause it'll probably still be close to the original size.
I got some of these:Awesome, I should have thought to see if that was possible. It looks like this is what you're talking about, would you happen to remember the seller on ebay as I couldn't find anything that seemed to belong on a bike. Unfortunately I'm super restricted space wise for wiring so i may have to shell out the $120...
I should be starting to make some serious progress pretty soon so stay tuned.
