Not yet. I'm still awaitng my sample cases. Once I have them I'll "crunch the numbers"

Estimated costs a.t.m (so nothing final!!!):

Tripmaster: 150€
Repeater: 200€
Combo Remote: 175€

What are you using for a pickup for the TM (and is it included in whatever the price ends up being)?

That's also been a bit of a problem to solve...

The system uses a simple 2 wire proximity switch, just like the original ICO. You can use the original ICO sensor.

I was thinking of also making my one ones, as it isn't all to difiicult to make them: an M8 screw witht the appropriate sensor and sturdy cable installed in it.

I'll do my best to include a sensor within the estimated price from before! If you prefer not to have one, i.e. build your own, or use your original KTM one, then I can give you a discount or something.

Deposits?!?

Before I forget:

If anybody is going to order an item, whether it be a tripmaster, repeater or remote (or all ), I'll need for you to put down a deposit.
This is just to make sure that I don't order any parts, then somebody backs out from the deal at the last minute, possibly leaving me not able to sell the parts at the end... (I'm still a poor teenager investing all his savings into these projects!!! )

I was thinking of about 50 per item (roughly 1/3 to 1/4 of the final price). Once I get the deposit, I'll start and complete your order and you can pay me the remaining costs once finished.

I hope you all can understand this and agree!


BTW: Does anybody know how PayPal fees work for international transactions??? Had a look at their site, but it was really confusing

I think that's great news for those who plan to actually rally their units -- they'll have a much greater chance of finding a spare if they're compatible with the "standard" ICO.

Try PM'ing Wonky from adv-spec. He probably has experience with it.

Quick update.

I was contacted by my CNC shop to tell me that the sample cases are done!!!

Here a pic:


Can't wait to hold them in my hands!!!
Hmm, where's that time machine of mine???

Neat stuff. I've been looking to ditch the IP on my F650GS in favor of something like the Tripmaster that was on my KTM 625SXC. This seems pretty close for a lot less dosh. I'd just like it to have:
- 2 trips (both adjustable and resetable)
- 1 ODO (not easily resetable)
- 1 Speedo
- 1 Clock
- Handlebar control

As for units: if it was switchable between km and mi that would be good.

Cheers
Brett

Tony, just noticed this in another thread:

Quote:
They are set to metric units, and ONLY metric. 3 simple functions: Trip (who would have thought?), speed and time. Wheel circumference is adjustable by 1mm steps.

Is my high school math that rusty, or can't you just apply a km/mi conversion factor to the wheel circumference?

Yes Cmph = 0.62137 * Ckm/h

Ckm/h = Wheel circumference in mm.
Cmph = Wheel circumference to enter for mph

As "soloyosh" has already said, yes it is possible. I just couldn't be bothered to integrate the imperial setting as an extra feature, as I haven't had to use it myself...
But seeing as there seems to be a high demand for the US market, I'll be adding it after all. This means that you'll be able to enter your wheel circ. in a fraction of an inch (what's the best way of doing so?)

Any suggestions on how to switch between metric and imperial? (I'm slowly running out of button combinations here!!!)

Great that you're interested!
(I'm assuming all the features mentioned by you are to be in 1 unit, and not in 5? )

So it looks like people are interested in multiple trips in their units, as well as an odo. Who else wants that?

On the KTM unit the Wheel Circumference was input in milimeters. Then there was an option to choose between mph and km/h on the unit. So if you did switch from mph to km/h your ODO and trips switched as well (eg. if you had 1000mi on your ODO, it would switch to 1600km). That meant in the KTM unit the units (mi or km) were tied to the values or if you switched from the "native" unit to the other unit it just applied a factor to convert them. I'm thinking in your unit, they are just numbers with no units associated to them? If that is the case, and you change the from metric to imperial or vice versa by changing the wheel circum. your trips and odo would not change and would simply accrue mileage and a different rate after that. (Example: If you have 1000mi on the ODO and then change your wheel circum. for metric, then after another 1000 miles your ODO would show 2600.) For me, if it can be done like the KTM unit (keep the units with the values) that would be great. But if it'll add a ton of expense and be a big tear-up, I'd be fine just adjusting the wheel circum.

I guess you could do it in ODO mode, since that wouldn't need an increment/decrement function.

1 unit please

So, "soloyosh", if I understood you correctly, you'd like to enter the wheel circ. only in mm's, but be able to switch speed/trip/odo between metric and imperial?
If so, then that won't be a problem at all then!!! I'll see to it that the appropriate unit change mode is within the odo mode!

Remote Update

Just a quick update regarding the remotes:

Here, you can see how low the roadbook switch is (in comparison to the aluminum holder supplied with Touratech RB's, which has the exact same lenght as the MD roadbook switch holders.):


Also, it has come to my attention that you may want to be able to control more than one unit remotely. I have seen the "original" remotes with a secondary remote attached to them, like so:




I didn't really like to concept of the extra two buttons being so far away from you thumb, so I found a new, better, spot for them. (It also helps get the clutch perch or light switch closer to the remote!):


Other side (note how the cable routing has been done!):


I'm still awaiting the price quote from my CNC guy, who's on holiday until Tuesday

Rear view (empty space will be sealed off with silicone!):


As you can tell, I haven't placed a clamp on to the rear of the remote. I was thinking of taking something used for clutch/brake perches. Possibly one for holding a mirror. What do you think?
