Looks from the diagram that Fuel Warning is not supported by the KOSO db01r, is the fuel gauge readings accurate?

I could probably make another image to show how the pins need to be connected if you're going to do it that way.
Howd you figure out what connector it was?

Hi all
I have done this mod a year or so ago,
I posted all info needed and diagrams in thread as no one seemed to be able to help at that time.
You can find thread by going onto my profile page.

Or just type in

Horlicks er6n Db01r wiring diagram/installation.

Hope this helps.

In the Wiring pic... the footnote #1... i have a hard time understanding...

*** The GREEN negative wire from the speed sensor must also be connected to BLACK/YELLOW (#9)...

- What GREEN negative wire?
- Speed sensor???

There are 3 wires to the Koso to give it a signal so it can tell you how fast you are going (based on a signal from the bike's sensor).

The negative wire (green) from speed sensor on the Koso needs to be connected to a ground. So all you have to do is connect the green and black wires from the Koso to the black/yellow on the bike.

I think I spent ages looking through various suppliers until I found one that was almost exactly the same. When I knew the manufacturer it was easy enough to look them up and then find somewhere that sold them to consumers (most places wanted orders of 1000+ !)

The gauge reading works fine, but it's a bit on the conservative side. It shows empty when there is about 1/4 to 1/3 left in the tank.

Perfect... thanks for the reply...

and i also looked into the plug adapter to match the oem harness... seems like its worth spending the extra 5-7$ to not completely destroy the oem harness...
was it easy to solder the wires of the koso to it? wasnt too small of a piece to give you any trouble with that?

It's easy enough, just take the pins out of the plastic connector first. After I put it back together (and made sure it worked properly) I filled in the gaps between the contacts with epoxy resin to stop them moving around and shorting out. It also helps to give it a bit of strength since it's not really designed to be used like that, it's meant to be mounted to PCB. If you've got a heat gun it's worth putting a heat shrink sleeve over it to hold it all together and protect it from the elements.

seeing as im new to this, im probly gonna rely on youtube to learn how to solder (never done it) and as for epoxy resin, im sure i understand that i put this between the pins of the newly attached connector i just soldered...

while i have your attention, my bike has no fairings due to an accident and i have no intention of rebuilding it back to OEM... was just keeping it "naked"... how dangerous is it to leave some of the connectors out like that? is a really tight and good electrical tape job good enough? or should i look for shrink materials? i was told and found out that the connectors are all pretty much waterproof but im skeptical
