GL1500 Gear Indicator

I want to share what I have done for a gear indicator for GL1500.

For the case of the indicator, I used the chrome case of a small car mirror (2 inch in dia), and prepared a sticker showing the numbers in a shop and stuck it on a 2mm plexiglass.

I used the wires going to ECU in the C59 connector to get gear position signals; black/white wire in C57 for positive voltage, and the ground from the connector over dipstick.

As we know, there is not a 1st gear signal on GL1500 (on some models 2nd either). So I prepared a circuit shown below to provide the 1st gear signal. The logic behind this circuit is, if any of the gears N, 2, 3, 4 or 5 is not selected then it will be on the 1st gear. I added a delay of 1.5 sec for the 1st gear led to light up, otherwise it would light up in every gear shift. I used 7809 voltage regulator to provide a stable voltage for the circuit, protected it using a 2A fuse and used a small box to house the control circuit.

I preferred the colors of leds as, red-1, green-N, blue-2, yellow-3,4, green-5, and adjusted their brightness using resistors in different values.

I placed the indicator on the top shelter, in front of the stereo and the control box under the right glove box.

Here are some pictures and circuit diagram of the project.

Note: Q1:BC337(npn); D1:5.6v zener; C:220uf; N,D2-5:1N4007; R0:10K; U:7809; R1-R6:675-5K ohm

Awesome job Erdeniz,
I had sometimes thought "maybe I would do something like that", but just never settled down long enough to think it thru.

You just earned 5 Gold Stars and a Bookmark!!!

And, you got a Sticky that will last a while so folks have a chance to see this.

I have a suggestion.
Erd just posted this yesterday and when I got on the forum this morning, I was expecting it to have some replies to read but I didn't see his thread anywhere towards the top of the thread list. Hmmm. I went ahead and read the new replies to the other threads in this section then just happened to notice that it was stickied. Maybe it's just me, but I don't really pay attention to the stickies much because they're usually threads that have been around for a while and I've already read and just use for reference.
This thread might get the more views it deserves if left as a normal thread for a bit.
Just an idea.

I only use the "new posts" button so it don't matter where they are.

Understandable but there has to be more out there than me that don't use the "new posts" because they don't want to see half a page of new posts in the stickies in the Fun Forum.
