Would this work and be compatible with a 2002 FZS 600 ?

No worries - looks fantastic! Any queries let me know.


Just a heads up - will be temporarily suspending ordering from the website - mainly gives me time to get current orders sorted within promised times, and then I'm away in December, so I'll be switching the site to 'Pre order' mode for anyone who wants to order, I'll then be back in January and able to continue with additional orders.


However the next software update should be available before Christmas which will introduce additional Idle Fan control & Tyre Pressure monitoring, and will be compatible with the following TPMS from Amazon (actually meant for Car stereos, but it works nicely with the TFT Dash).


https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07YBS1B6H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


With the Christmas software update, and the above TPMS, all you do is connect the receiver to the USB port at the back of the TFT Dash - attach the LR & LF sensors in the kit to your wheels, and you'll have tyre pressure readings (+ warnings if your tyres go outside your set pressure range).

Was this change implemented now?


Thanks

Hi all,


Apologies for the long silence! Am now back and working my way through Pre-orders that I've received. Once I've completed the Pre-order builds I'll be resuming ordering via the website.


I'm slightly delayed on the last Software Update which will include Tyre Pressures & Idle Fan Control. Will aim to get this out in Feb, once I've fulfilled pre-orders.


Any questions do let me know.

I'm thinking of ordering one. What would it cost including shipping to Singapore?


However, I would like to wait until the satnav features are implemented. Any idea when this might happen?


Thanks!!

No problem. International shipping to Singapore is £18. Shipping cost is added automatically when placing an order.


Sat Nav features will be implemented later this year, ideally before the summer. This will be in the form of a software update. Each TFT Dash unit supplied will come pre-equipped with a bluetooth module in preparation for the Sat Nav / GPS software update. It will enable you to pair your Smartphone to the TFT Dash and via an app you'll be able to download to your phone it will communicate direction updates to the TFT Dash via Bluetooth.

Just remember they’ll likely be some import duty depending on the tariff code

Hi Andrew,


Current waiting time before order goes through is around 7 days. If you send an email to orders@tftdashproject.co.uk, I'll add you to the list. I've almost fulfilled most of the previous Christmas pre-orders, and will soon be switching the site back to normal ordering.

It was a question, surely he will start making em for other bikes now when most R&D are made!?

I'd love to move onto other bike models - one of the tricky things is not having access to the target bike. The main reason for choosing the FZS1000 for me was that it's one of the bikes I own, plus I think it's an amazing bike. During the R&D phase of this project I was able to spend time figuring out the existing clock wiring, and with things like Speed & RPM a long time was spent refining / refactoring my code & circuits to get accurate readings which usually meant many many test rides with a prototype setup once I'd made a change until I was happy with the values I was seeing. With another bike I would probably have to do this again.


However, I'm considering a 'universal' version. This would be much the same unit however the software would allow you to calibrate readings from the relevant sensors, and change them to match the sensors on your bike. However this wouldn't be a plug & play unit - there would be clearly labelled wires which you'd need to connect to the relevant connections on your bike, e.g. Speed signal, RPM signal, Left Turn, Right Turn, Engine Temp sensor, Fuel gauge / Fuel light, etc.. You'd then have to wire this into your bike.


Next major development areas on the list are Sat Nav & EXUP control.


In the next couple of days I'll be switching the site back to normal ordering as most pre-orders have now been dispatched.

Currently approaching 20, I tend to build them in batches of 3 max.

Pffff, that's awesome. It looks damn good, just I am not sure at the moment if I like the looks of futuristic or do I like the classier look. Probably implementing a way to comunicate with the phone, will make my mind. Keep up the good work  :D

Received my unit now, thanks.  Looking at fitting it this weekend, wish me luck. 
Looking forward to the Satnav update and what's the EXUP control?

Well, fitted it, Piece of piss, unbolt your clocks, plug in the dash and bolt it up, done !!! 
Took about an hour and most of that was wondering if I was doing it right as it all went so easy.
Thanks Danny.

If anyone's got any pics/vids of the unit on their own bikes now that more are rolling out, it would be great to see them.


Fair play DJDLTD, looks like a great unit and nice to see so many orders out there already!

UPDATE: It's been a while lol. The website is now back to normal ordering mode - anyone who wants to order can now do so from the website without pre-ordering via email. Many thanks for sending pictures of the TFT Dash on your bikes! It really is amazing to see this thing go from dream to reality in the space of a few months - it's so much appreciated!


The February 2020 Software update (which was originally meant to be the Christmas software update!) is finally available to download. (Existing TFT Dash owners might have been notified via email). In addition to TPMS compatibility, this introduces a critical fix to the odometer that manifested on a few boards (not every microprocessor had the issue) at Odometer values of 100000 or above. This has been fixed.


A tweak to the gear indicator has also been done, so it compensates a bit better when accelerating hard / decelerating. A bit later I'll be introducing a way to calibrate the gear indicator, by setting your own observed gear ratios per gear. I've noticed that simple factors like rear tyre pressure can throw off the gear indicator as it is quite sensitive.
