Short answer is - not yet.
I'm just waiting for a new set of dial faces to arrive so I can do the whole lot together. Trouble is that I'm off touring on it in Europe is a couple of weeks, so it might have to wait until I get back.

At the BMW Club track day an 11S owner asked me about the gear indicator. I pointed him in this direction. Don't know if the guy is a member on here.

Which guy was that? The instructor on the yellow one or the guy on the dark grey one? Emilio told me later that you had it installed, I wish I'd have checked it out now!

Is it white dial faces you're fitting? I wanted to do that but had problems sourcing the faces with MPH markings. If you have a source I'd appreciate a heads up.......

No, I've done my own black faces but with white lettering rather than yellow

No KPH marking, just simple, classic aviator style.

I'll try reversing the colours and see what it looks like.

edit ...
a bit like this ...

I had them made up in Germany http://www.heiler-tachodesign.de/ They were quick and efficient, cost £70 (say it quick), but better than £150+ I was quoted from a well-known UK firm!

Can I still buy a kit? (the one without cockpit mod)

Dear Buzzz90. I've been fooling around with a generic Gear Indicator for my wife's R1150R, it works with a magnet and two Hall sensors. It is not as reliable as your solution, so I would love to buy the €37-ish kit. So, what do I do next???

Do you still put these together? I would very much like to buy a full package.

Kind regards,
