I have mounted the GIpro on a sportbike above the dash, below the windshield and I can’t reach the touch sensor at the top side of the unit. Is there any way to access the menu without taking the windshield off?
Yes, just use thin metal piece, at least 1cm (0.4″) wide. Hold the metal piece in your hand (without gloves) and use it as if it was an extension of your finger to operate the touch sensor.
How does the GIpro X-type work?
The unit reads the Speed and RPM signals to determine the gear position. The firmware adaptively adjusts sensitivity and threshold levels to work as good as possible on the specific bike it is installed on. For this reason, it is more accurate and has much quicker response time than competing products.
It shows a “-” sign when the clutch is pulled in, and shows the correct gear position as soon as the clutch is released.
Incorrect gear is never shown, except when the clutch slips (for a split second when the clutch is released slowly after a backshift).
How does the GIpro X-type compare to similar products?
We guarantee that you will love the GIpro! Sold in very large numbers over the last decade and we get lots of good feedback from our customers. There’s a reason HealTech is the most popular brand when it comes to gear indicators and the G2 version is the best universal gear indicator to date.
Which display color would you recommend?
The Red and Green colors are the best in strong daylight. Second choice is Blue, then White. Yellow is not recommended unless the
display will be mounted in a shaded location.
Is it compatible with other products, like the SpeedoHealer, Power Commander, Bazzaz, etc.?
Yes. It won’t interfere with other products. Works perfectly with quick shifters too.
What does it take to install the GPX?
› with Plug ‘n Go harness kits: Connect one connector and tap 1 or 2 wires with the wire-tap quick connectors supplied. On most bikes, all connections are done under the fuel tank.
› with Universal (U01 or U02) harness kits: Tap 4 wires with the wire-tap quick connectors supplied. No need to cut or solder any wires.
› if the bike has a cable driven speedometer (or no speedometer), our GPX-WSS wheel speed sensor kit is needed. Mount the sensor at the front or rear wheel and tap 3 wires with the wire-tap quick connectors supplied. No need to cut or solder any wires.
What is the difference between the DS and X-type models?
The display size and available colors are exactly the same, but the way it determines the gear position is very different.
The DS works on SPECIFIC bike models with factory diagnostic system built-in, while the X-type works on ALL bikes with 4, 5 or 6 speed gearbox.
Both models are easy to install but it takes less time to install a DS as you just plug it into the diagnostic socket on the bike.
Basically, the choice is simple. Get the DS if it is listed for your bike, otherwise get the X-type.

I have installed an X-type on my bike earlier, can I switch to the new version?
Yes, you need to order the X-type G2 display unit only. Your harness kit installed does not need to be changed.
