KOSO speedometer panel


Koso speedometer panel for motorcycle are so cool when fitted to the bike, in replacement for those analog type. With its digital display and colorful backlight. A head turner indeed. But when it broke down..i mean get defective, it is like a disposable item.

Shown is a Koso speedometer panel for yamaha mio. A friend send it to me by parcel in request for me to look at it if there is a way to fixed the panel.

Unfortunately, at the end of this page, you will see why i said its kind of a disposable panel, but if there is a way to find the right program, yes a program, a firmware for its MCU perhaps, there is a slight chance it can be revived and repaired.

5 LED Motorcycle Headlight (review)


Led headlight for motorcycle are in the beginning of their trial and error process that many claim a thumbs up, these are those users who actually fitted it on their motorbike to name a few are yamaha mio, kawasaki fury, honda wave, and select unit with enough headroom on their headlight assembly. Variants come out in the open on three onboard high power leds, and as shown on the photo is a five led type with 5mm leds circled at the edge as to form a circle of light when main device is at the OFF position.

This article is just a review of the said led headlight for motorcycle and even for cars too but not as headlights but as an auxillary lighting.

Wireless helmet brake light (doorbell hack)

I got an idea with the first post HERE on how to make such related gadget out from those cheap wireless doorbell assembly made by china. With some minor modification of the circuit can be configured to work as a Wireless Stoplight add on for motorcycle.
Photo shown is the donor gadget, transmitter on the left and receiver on the right side. The supply voltage of the transmitter is 12 volts, and can be directly tap on the motorcycle stoplight supply path, that when the brake is press, will enable it to transmit signal towards its receiver.If we analyze their circuit, the transmitter push button switch just enable and disable the supply, and when used on the brake light, the switch will be omitted, so no other modification is needed for it to work on this hack.

For the Receiver, the sound emitted by the module of course is not needed, and the sound chip must be disregard, and in its place, a switching transistor and a pair of 3 RED LED array is to be used. The receiver voltage supply is actually  3 volts only, Three led in series cannot be powered by that voltage so led forward voltage must be selected. In this hack, i'll be replacing the 3 volts up to 3.7 volts such as cellphone battery so that no other additional circuit that will waste battery power.

Led Brake Light

Constant current LED brake light tail light module. Ever wonder how to make your filament bulb type tail / brake light to all leds, the solution is to use a constant current led driver with additional mosfet as switch for brake light so that the usual tail light will switch from dimmed to full brightness on the leds. More often, enthusiast uses just again the limiting resistor type of controlling the brightness of the light emitting diode installed on the bike, as i had said from all of my previous post about led, in order for them to stay consistent and works longer, a constant current driver will protect your led installed.

Oil Drain Plug Thread fix

Been quite a while not having to share with works i've done with my shogun..until up recently i have troubles with one of my drain plug getting loose after my change oil routine. Many times, as far as i know, this area of the engine is prone to loosing thread with the removal of the bolt and during the tightening series, and other's only solution was to OVERSIZE it to the next allowable range just to have it fix, then so on and so forth..what if it get loose again, This i dont like to know.

Aluminum is so prone to this problem, especially when the engine is cold. I usually change my oil during morning after firing the engine for 5 minutes, but then i forgot this routine then this what happens.


Anyway, this is my way of fixing my loose drain plug..






The picture shows how the thread was badly worn,







Digital Tachometer

This is my digital tachometer i made a long time ago on my suzuki shogun 125cc and still in active up to date. The tachometer incorporates a programmable shift lights, the red line can be programmed depends on where to shift at a certified RPM...watch the video to see it in action.

Super Park light

Been thinking of using 5mm leds as park light and signal lights as well, in replacement for filament type ones to conserve battery energy and minimize discharge activity to prolong its life..and came my first revision that uses the 5mm leds as park lights.

FIRST revision LED park lights.............still i used it for almost 2 years on my bike without no problem but then since i am an enthusiast and craving for more far ideas, i might think of..came my second revision. An alternating park and signal lights in action

Universal Battery Charger

Universal battery charger is a type of charger that can be used on almost all possible kind of battery available like SLA (sealed Lead Acid), Lithium-ion (used on laptop batteries), lithium polymer (used on cellphone and small electronic gadget, Ni-cd (nicad) and Ni-Mh (nickel Metal Hydride) batteries used on portable power and hand tools.

Spark Plug Cap Resistor


I recently encountered another problem with my suzuki ignition, that even if i am kicking the hell on the kick starter wont even nudge or start my bike. Ever since i added this ignition-wire-ground-strap , it became a tester of some sort due to the spark jumping on that shield ground, that from there it is telling me, the PLUG CAP resistor is too corroded to accept even an arc to feed the spark plug GAP. It has been three times i replaced my plug cap. so in the end, instead of buying the same crap, i made a minor modification using that plug cap and a resistor of 2.2k used in every electronic circuits.
