07-08 DIY Geartronic 2 install

So i figured its winter time and with the holidays just passing everyone/most people have received gifts for your RR... Well if your were lucky enough to receive a Geartronic(non plug/play) or Geartronic 2 then you were like me looking for a install, and could only find the install on the R6

So this is my first DIY so bare with me.... if something is not clear enough just shoot me a PM and ill help you out...


Well for starters i am skipping the steps for fairing removal and how to remove your headlights/gauges b/c their is already DIY floating around the forums...

once you have the whole assembly in your garage/shop/ or where ever you can have a solid work surface... Remove Headlights and gauge from your front fairing stay... you will notice on both sides under the ears for your mirror attachment that their are 2 fins...


I choose to install the gear indicator on the left side of the stay because when you turn your bars left/right the brake lever will almost touch the right side...So I used a dremel with a cut off tool to cut straight down and then used the grinding attachment to remove the excess fin... leaving you with this...


Use air gun or Lungs to blow away excess plastic residue that may be left on fairing stay... next place stay in soft jaw vice or have a friend hold stay... you will need a 3/8 drill bit... and drill a small hole... i work as a mechanic so at my shop we have wire grommets.. you will need a 3/8 grommet which looks like this


Next install grommet which may take a little work to get it into the hole but patience is key believe me it will fit... should look like this when installed


now put fairing stay off to side... take your gauges which may/may not have the wire harness still attached and starting from the female plug that goes into gauge start to cut away electrical tape being very careful not to cut through any wires... a new razor blade will help...take your time no need to rush... you should be left with this


According to the instructions that came with your geartronic the wire goes as follows
Geartronic Unit:
RPM- light blue
Speed- Green
Positive- Red
Negative- Brown

600rr:
RPM - yellow/green
Speed - Pink/green
Positive - white/black
Negative - green/black ( note: their are 2 green with a black tracer... you need the darker green wire)

Next step... go grab your fairing stay and your gear indicator and feed the wire through the wire grommet your installed earlier.


Now you will need to remove some of the protective covering over your wires...again be careful not to cut through any wires just the covering..


Next install your gauge into fairing stay along with the wire harness attached to it... you will now need to strip some of the wiring back in order to solder the connections...be careful do not cut through the wires... you can also use painters tape you isolate the white wire outta the way(geartronic side) they should end up looking like this...remember to cover each solder joint with electrical tape...




Take your electrical tape and start recovering all your wires but make sure you leave the white wire out and isolated so you can run it to another spot for easy calibration..



now attach your velco that was supplied with your unit to both the unit and fairing stay.. will need to be cut to length... DO NOT install on your stay just yet just allow the unit to hang... at this point you can reinstall the headlights to the stay and install the 3 screw that hold you gauge to the stay as well.. you can then install the stay back on your to bike... at that point the adhesive should be strong enough to have you attach your unit and make sure it is straight and aligned the way you like it leaving you with this...



Here is my pic of the unit running installed and key on and engine off with lights off in my basement... still winter so i have not been able to calibrate it or change the color of backlight to my liking yet.. you will still have to run a extend wire to a ground of your choosing for easy access. i plan on running it under my seat cause i will take the risk of calibrating it on my front and rear stand.
P.S. LED gauge cluster was customized by the one and only TRIPAGE

I hate down shifting into 1st gear cause its really rough and can lock your rear easily.. Also I always try to kick up another gear when I'm already at the top lol and sometimes I'm just curious what gear in in

07-08 DIY Geartronic 2 install

Finally got around to installing my GearTronic 2. Chose a different mounting place so my install was considerably easier than this one. Basically all I had to remove was the front fairing. Pics soon.

07-08 DIY Geartronic 2 install

I wanted my gear indicator, and more specifically the shift light, to be as visible as possible so Instead of mounting it all the way to the left I decided to use the Velcro to have it hang right in front of some free space between the tach and the speedo. This way a quick flick of the eyeballs downward allows a glance at both the speedo and GearTronic, and tach all together. Also that shift light isn't terribly bright so the closer to the eyes the better. Might not look quite as clean but I thought it was a good option to at least try, and I'm pretty happy with the results.

It also makes the installation considerably easier since the only thing that needs to be removed is the front fairing. direct access to all the wires you need to splice into are right there and the GearTronic cable can be run between the front fairing and the gauge cluster. Super easy.... no need to remove headlights, or Guages or side fairings, no grinding, no drilling holes.

See pics.

I see this hasn't been posted it for awhile, but I just got a geartronic zero and have a question. After plugging the unit in to the ecu is there a recommended place to run the wires under the fairings to the dash? Pics would be nice if anyone has them.

I'm a beginner at this stuff. I'd need pics to understand that. Lol. The instructions aren't great other than the calibration part.
