GSXS Shift light
Suzuki don’t fit a GSXS Shift light as standard to the Suzuki GSX-S so I fitted a Healtech shiftlight Pro just behind and above the main dash to tell me when i was approaching the GSXS rev limit. 3 wires to connect, power (tapped into ignition switched power), earth and I tapped the brown/black tachometer feed behind the dash for the rpm signal.
The modified Suzuki GSX-S1000 accelerates so fast, particularly after tuning that you don’t have time to look at the dash and the GSXS Shift light is so bright it catches your attention very easily even in bright sunlight. It work extremely well particularly in conjunction with the Suzuki GSXS Quickshift I have and my modified GSXS rev limit.
The light is much brighter than it appears in the photos – this is just the start up which is minimum brightness.
As can be seen in the photos I also changed the colour of the dash lighting and added a voltmeter
Start up sequence
“Getting your gear change right means first and foremost better acceleration, better fuel economy, longer gearbox and transmission life. Just think it over – you can’t make a proper lap without perfect shifting. This is where our Healtech ShiftLight pro comes into the picture. Meet the world’s smallest shift light module in a weatherproof casing with a fully custom programmable RGB Power LED.
Can be programmed as a shift light for sport bikes and race cars or as a low/optimal/high RPM range indicator for touring bikes and other vehicles to get the best possible fuel consumption out of your machine. Indicates when the RPM is out of optimal range (too low or too high). The coolest part is that you have total control over it with your Android device via Bluetooth connection”
The GSXS Shift light is completely programmable using an android phone, and it has 3 different warning levels, I use solid green at 10,500 Amber at 11,500 and flashing red at 12,500rpm (my GSX-S has a higher rpm limit as i re-flashed it)
I used to have the green light to come on at just over 7,000rpm as that was where the powerband was but after building a new custom exhaust I now have smooth power everywhere in the rpm range so now it only comes on at high rpm
