Universal KOSO GP-Style speedometer Type RX1N with white speedo face.

  • Reading up to 360 km/h or 223 MPH
  • Odometer up to 99999,9 km or Miles
  • Two trip odometers up to 999,9 km or miles
  • Speed warning in the range from 30 to 180 km/h (20-110 MPH). Adjusting unit in 5 km/h or MPH
  • Memory of reached Top Speed (0-360 km/h or 0-223 MPH)
  • Rev Counter up to 15.000 U/min. Unit 100 U/min
  • Memory of highest revs
  • Temperature gauge in °C oder °F from 0-120°C or 32-248°F. Unit 0,1°C/F

  • Works with most common tank sensors. 100 Ohm or 510 Ohm
    Free setting of reserve warning between 10-50.
  • Clock
  • Acceleration Test 1, how long does it take to pass a given distance. Distance can be defined between 50-1000 m (1/32 - 20/32 Miles). Unit 50 m (1/32 Meile). Perfect to get used to sprint races
  • Acceleration Test 2, how long does it take to reach a selected speed. Speed selection is possible from 30-360 km/h (20-220 mph)
  • Top Speed Timer Testing, here you have info about your reached top speed, passed distance and max revs
How do you like it?

Here is a pic of mine:


The problem with the fuel gauge is that it "Works with most common tank sensors. 100 Ohm or 510 Ohm".

The SV uses some kind of two level switch that makes the fuellight flash or light up and that isn't compatible with the Koso speedometer.

How did you find the wiring project? I'm still in the middle of a big bout of indecision about the future of my bike but I'm looking at a similiar Koso as a possible gauge set... I'm OK with wiring but I'm no electrician ;)

Wiring seems easy...

Match cluster color wires to the SV650 color wires...

Splice the SV wiring harnes... No need to cut wires.

You mean you got a problem with connecting the Koso speedo to the right wires? Think I can help you with that...

Nah, I've not got one, just wondered how good the instructions for what wires do what is, etc. I fitted an older Koso to a mate's kit car a few years back and it was a godawful b*****d of a job, the instructions were all over the shop, very badly translated. But it sounds like they've upped their game a bit

There is, with LEDs anyway, but it's a bit complicated... Worth looking for though, it's definately been done, but my link was for the old forum and it's gone.

I have the Koso. I spent the extra money over the Vapor sets beause I really wanted the analog tachometer, and this one has excellent styling. Plus it's loaded with features, minus the fuel gauge (I just use my odometer).

I got mine from Blair at SV racing parts. He gives a discount (don't remember the exact amount)

It's a sweet setup. the only thing I haven't gotten wired is the temp sensor and the fuel gauge.
I also ended up running the speedo sensor to my back wheel cause it fit nicer.

nille, what did you do for the temp sensor?

TIA
