GIpro Gear Indicators

  • Model: HT-GIPRO-INFO
  • Manufactured by: Healtech Electronics

The GIpro range of gear indicators from Healtech Electronics is the most comprehensive (100% compatibility) and quite simply the best available.
Why? They use most advanced adaptive electronics, allowing continuous product improvement and updates.

There are three types of GIpro, so which one do you need?

Easy, just look for your bike in the “Healtech Product Advisor”, note down the GIpro type and model number and either search for it using the search field at the top of this page or browse the GIpro section of Healtech Electronics here.

IMPORTANT: check your bike is compatible with this product BEFORE purchase:

Healtech User/Installation Manuals

If your bike is not listed, yes there will be a GIpro for your bike (no matter how old), please contact us for advice.
Note: If your bike has no speedometer or uses a mechanical (Bowden) cable speedometer then you will need a GIpro X-Type display with the GPX-WSS harness that includes an external speed sensor for mounting on one of the wheels.

The GIpro Family - Why are there so many models?

Each of the three types of GIpro have been developed to make the most of certain characteristics of specific bikes/brands, to make the installation as easy as possible. Each type of GIpro works in a completely different way, so it is essential that you use the Healtech Product Advisor to choose the correct GIpro for your bike.

GIpro DS Series

GIpro DS with integrated OBD cableTrue plug-and-play, these units use the OBD/diagnostic computer output of the bike’s ECU to extract the necessary data to display the current gear.
How exactly they work varies between manufacturer depending on the data available, so a GIpro K01 (for Kawasaki) does not work the same as a GIpro DS S01 (for Suzuki).
The GIpro DS Series are the most popular gear indicators on the market due to their absolute ease of installation: just plug them in, no hunting for cables, cutting or soldering (with the exception of some Triumph models that require a discrete power connection).

The GIpro DS Series is available for most current models of Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Triumph. There is no GIpro DS for Yamaha; they always require the GIpro X-Type.

GIpro w/ATRE

GIpro ATRE with integrated bridge cableSome bikes already have a factory gear sensor but no indicator (strange but true).
So, the GIpro w/ATRE plugs into (bridges) the OEM gear sensor cable and displays the gear directly from the sensor voltage. For this reason the GIpro w/ATRE is always the fastest gear indicator possible.

Additionally since the GIpro w/ATRE is plugged in between the gear sensor and the ECU it is able to “lie” to the ECU about what gear you are using and so cause the ECU to use a different fuel map with less restrictions and even (in the case of Suzuki 1000cc bikes) remove the speed limitation!
This function is the “ATRE” part of the name: “Advanced Timing Retard Eliminator”.
The effects vary greatly between models as of course it all depends on the ECU’s factory fuel maps, but in some cases (eg. the Suzuki V-Strom DL1000) there is a massive improvement!

The GIpro w/ATRE has a significantly larger display than the GIpro DS/X-Type and is compatible with a very limited range of bikes, mainly some Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Triumph. This GIpro is commonly used in street cars as the gear reading is always correct even when the wheels have lost traction.

GIpro X-Type

GIpro X-Type with separate bike-specific cableFor ALL other bikes there is the GIpro X-Type.
This takes a speed signal and an engine rpm signal and (after programming) uses the ratio between the two to determine the current gear.

The GIpro X-Type has two components: the display (generic, available with 5 digit colours) and a GPX cable harness (specific to the bike in question).

There are many cable harnesses available to ease the installation on many common bikes. In general the harness plugs into (bridges) the speed sensor connectors and a separate connection has to be made to a rpm signal (crankshaft/camshaft sensor, injection coil or tachometer) and possibly a power source. Connectors are supplied: no cutting, no soldering required.
