Joey... you ride a tree? cheeky

 

Nevertheless, I agree. Let's drop the snide remarks and concentrate on the technical challenge/assistance.

The main thing is that it need to work in the sun.

Vic Roads found over 200 dead crows on the Hume near Benalla recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.
A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu.
The cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the ...bird's beaks and claws.
By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorcycles while only 2% were killed by cars.
Vic Roads then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorcycle kills versus car kills.
The Ornithological Behaviourist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger.
They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "bike"

They were probably killed by the Benalla police hiding in the bush (don't ask how I know) because they were giving them away. sad

Ross, when i was reading it, my bullsh@@ detector was twitching. Good story nonetheless. I'll have to use it on my children.

I thought it fitted the thread and the origin of the OP. Hope your girls get/enjoy it.

Maybe the crows should have taken lessons from Graham Kennedy and yelled "faaaaaaaaarrrrrk, faaaaaaaaarrrrrk"

Dont all motorcycles have an obd connector just like a car? I have a scangauge in my honda. I wrote down the rpm and mph in each gear. Looks like gear=mph*217/rpm. I think I can program that into an Xgauge and show it as GER or something.

It does have a "dealer mode" connector. Thats what Suzuki call it anyway. I could decode the info from there as well BUT with what I am trying to do will provide erroneous gear info to the ECU. These bikes have their timing retarded in 1st,2nd and 3rd gears so part of this project will be to trick the ECU into thinking it is in 4th, or 5th.

Also the updated schematic is on hold. My other laptops fan has stopped and starts to overheat. I will post it up when I swap it out.

Bob wants to know where the OBD connector is on that Honda!

Just a guess but I don't think it has one.

Just a bit of trivia, sales of these trikes were banned in 1988 in the United States. Guess why.

Kartman, would you recommend a linear or switch mode. I am estimating around 200ma max so I was thinking of a 500ma regulator. I would like to try and stick to a linear one to keep the component count and cost down.

Linear for simplicity, but if the constraints mean you have too much temperature rise, then a switcher.

You're not kidding.  Rolled one in '86.  Happy to be here ;-)

Same up in Canada.  Still have one, though.  My dad's, actually.  Take it out for a spin almost every time I go visit.  Somewhat more carefully than 30 years ago ;-)  They're actually quite tame when you know how they sit.  What the pros can do with them continues to boggle my mind.  My own spill was a bit of a freak incident.  It's the numbskulls who treated them like they were go-karts (or let their children ride them either too young or without proper training) which got them kicked out of the gene pool.

Thats what i was thinking. I have a couple selected that are automotive quality. I should have the schematic done tomorrow night.

We'll need a bit more than just a schematic. In the code i posted earlier there's a whole load of #defines that need real values. you'll need to figure out the circuit on the bike and guestimate the input circuit of the ECU.
