I change gears by what feels right, but it would be nice to know what gear I am really in all the time - I noticed I keep trying to shift to seventh, and I like to make turns knowing I'm in second. So I bought a gear indicator from Cal-Sportbike for $150 http://www.calsportbike.com/gipro-ds/. Installation on a Vstrom is brainless - it plugs into a service connector on the right side of the bike. I like it much more than I thought I would. Also the people at Cal-Sportbike are very nice to work with when I had questions. I tried it attached to my brake reservoir, but like it better on the tach. It comes in different colors - red seems to look the best to me.
