Just wondering if anyone has seen one of these or heard of anyone trying to put one on a bike...it says it plugs into the cig. lighter, but I would imagine it can be pluged into any 12volt source...sure would be nice having a referance for tuning and adding performance parts without having to run to the dyno all the time

all of the measurements with those are figured using the accelerometers. ive never used one to see any kind of setup you may have to do and idk what kind of math it does internally to "calculate hp and torque" but whatever it is its calibrated for cars... i bet the weight and size difference would throw it off since it may have some kind of average in it that it uses to determine a legitimate hp and torque based on how fast it took off.... etc.

i think it might work...

i have the older g-meter and it asks you to input vehicle weight before doing anything so it should calculate everything correctly with the accelorometer. Maybe i'll try it with my old

im not so worried about the HP graph but I think the 0-60, 1/8 and 1/4 times would be pretty cool. I think im might go ahead and get it and let you guys know how it works.

that veypor thing is pretty sweet.... decent price too. but unless you are going for a full replacement of stock cluster then its kinda big and in the way.

This product does actually work. I have yet to figure out how but it does. My buddy also owns one that is designed for a car and it is so damn accurate. I understand what it has to do to work but the physics behind it don't flow well in my brain. Anyways, yes it does work but its not the smallest thing in the world.

I have these in my cars. They are pretty neat!! Some of the HP and times are off every now and then, but, it may be a little more difficult with a bike, because anytime you move it on the bike (or car) they have to be recalibrated. Might bekinda a pain in the butt, but its worth a try

I would rather just have a HUD system in my helmet so I didn't have to look down at my speedo to be surprised at how fast I am going.
