Default Re: Preparing a Gypsy For RDH 2011

The additional analog speedo install was done last night. Posting a blurry picture of it. Took a maruti 800 speedo and made a casing around it. Connected it with the existing speedo cable of the gypsy. The main ODO of the gypsy has been disconnected. The other gauges such as ffuel and temperature works.

Could have done a digital setup too. But taking OldMonk`s advice of a analog one by which you can get a idea of a second decimal since the last digit rotates slowly. Thanks satish.

Will post better pics of the speedo soon.

Also, i have a problem, Since last night a orange light is constantly glowing on the console. Posting a pic of it too. Someone please tell me what does this indicate.

Looks neat. Make sure to re-calibrate with GPS on a straight highway if possible.

Orange light pretty sure coz you disconnected the speedo cable, its ECU error code registry for malfunction. Yes MPFI Gypsy has sensors at speedo.

Hi Abbas,

Gud job, gypsy is looking very neat. Even if don't get the red bull sponsorship, I am sure you will be able to impress red bull pretty gals with the color combination of your gypsy .

I have my own doubts whether anyone can calibrate the M800 speedo as per gypsy requirement as both have different rim size.

pls check with Sudev ji, I think there is some guy in Nizzamudin who do the speedometer for gypsy with the analog tripmeter using the same gears, he also gives T kind of arrangement where you can connect two cables for speedometer, one for the navigator side & other for driver side. This will solve your Engine light problem. I had seen this in some gypsy during my RDH, it is a small console having Speedometer, horn button & wiper switch, unfortunately I had lost the phone number of that guy.

Secondly I will strongly recommend you to use GPS if your navigator is doing it first time, It really helps to see the overall average speed and keep maintaining it if your navigator is missing the calculations or he is not well. The additional penalty factor will not hurt you that badly.

Cheers!

Alok

First which category are you keeping in mind?

Xtreme? You would have to do modifications

Adventure? My advise would be to go with just a stock Gypsy.
