Has anyone here installed a shift light on there blade? If so what one did you use and do you like it?
Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for the reply Conq, I wasn't really thinking of drag racing, but things happen pretty fast in first and second gear and I thought it would be nice not to have to watch the tach.

Don't worry, your ears will get the hang of it.

Yes your ears, feeling in your hands & from the footrests tell you.
Besides the 929 & 954 have that lovely close ration in 5th to 6th so it is so nice to handle----- like a close ratio was when we road raced bikes. You simply peddaled the gears with no thought of WHAT gear one was in.
Back in the 70s Suzy came with it & many turned down other makes to buy the 400 with a light up number for the gear. That was as far as it went & many wished they had bought another make or model for it was a catch-gymic to help sell the bike.

That would be nice, a LED or something that tells you what gear you are in. The Rally drivers have it. Can't tell you the number of times I have grabbed sixth.
