Hello to all....I would like to know if a sv1000 tachometer work on a tl1000s

It does not work plug 'n' play, but it can be made working like the GSXR clocks. Needs an Arduino as a data converter.

Could you explain what you are trying to do. There's nothing wrong with the stock one. There's plenty of secondhand onew available if yours is faulty. Or are you trying to change it to something else for some reason. Which would mean rebuilding the stock speed tachometer unit to make something else fit.

Sorry your right I should have said what I was doing..I'm building a streetfighter and wanted to change the tachometer

What's a good tachometer to use for tl1000s
If you want the full OE clocks functionality (fuel light, temp, FI-Errors, TPS) then it's either the SV1000 or GSXR 1000 K1-K4 (K5/K6). None will work plug 'n' play though. The all need a data converter (Arduino).

Do you know of anyone that does them for a price of course
Where are you from? If from any EU Country then I can do it if you provide the clocks. Currently I'm on the Canary Islands until end of next weel though.

Looking at the tlr in his avatar I'd say America Joe. Looks like a stretched swinging arm.

I'm from the US and the avatar picture is of a tlr and yes it has and extended swingarm I'm building a tls

Hiya on the back of this is there a walk through on how to program a arduino or where to purchase one from ?? I'm looking at putting some sv or gsxr750 srad clocks on my tls streetfighter so I can retain all the standard functions . Any help appreciated kind regards sam

I do not have any DIY instructions for SV or SRAD clocks. I only did 2 SV1000, but no SRAD at all. So there just was no need for any docs. I only have instructions for GSXR K1 - K6. I don't even have the SRAD gauge cluster pinout. I do have an '98/'99 750 SRAD manual, but that does not have the pinout. Not sure if it is the same as for the TLR. The Arduino SW should be the same as for the TLS/TLR I guess, so I could give you the SW or send you an already flashed Arduino. But I do not have any installation instructions. Also, keep in mind that if it comes to SRAD clocks, only the '98 and '99 750 clocks can be used. Plus, like for the TLR-clocks-to-TLS, an additional booster circuit might be required to pull the tach signal from TLS's 5Vpp to the TLR's (SRAD's ???) 12Vpp level. Then the mileage correction. I know the storage scheme for the SV (EEPROM must be unsoldered though), but I have no idea what the EEPROM content for the SRAD is like. if it is like the TLR, then I know the algorithm.

Again, the easiest way would be to use GSXR 1000 K1/K2 or K3/K4 clocks. Everything's known there, and docs are available too.

Awesome thanks for the reply , I was just looking at the later 750 star clocks as they look like tlr clocks but a whole load cheaper. Happy to go down what ever route is easiest to be fair I just want a set of working clocks the bike had a push bike computer on it when I got it . I tried the chineese honda nc750 style clocks and it all works except the taco and the fuel guage as it's a guage and not a light. Just want to get it going and put it back together again now 😞 how much would a audrino cost t go in the gsxr clocks as you said k1-k6?? Thanks again for the answers so far 😄

Well, yes, looks like. However, a lot of those clocks on eBay go as 'GSX-R600 SRAD 600 GSXR 750 97 98 99 00", although 600/early 750 and late 750 (98/99) for sure are not compatible. Like this one that does not have 'FI' printed near the LED and definitely does not fit the '98/'99 750.

The easiest way would probably be TLR clocks or may be FI-SRAD clocks (not sure they are fully compatible). The TLR clocks however do require that tach scaling circuit. If it comes to GSXR-1000 clocks, the K2 would be easiest. Just add the Arduino (4 wires) and you're done. Next is K3/K4, needs the Arduino and another 10K resistor. Now, if you want to have the 2-stage fuel light like on the TL, then it's got to be the K1 since K2 and K3/K4 only have a 1-stage fuel light. The K1 in turn requires the Arduino and the Suzuki Fuel Level Light Resistor (FLLR) or 2x 68 Ohm/10 Watt power resistors wired to the front harness to get the fuel light working.

I doubt that '...it all works except...'. For sure the coolant temp did not work, the FI-error display did not work and the TPS info did not work.

how much would a audrino cost t go in the gsxr clocks as you said k1-k6??
The programmed/flashed Arduino for K1 - K4 is 10,- Euros plus shipping. If you want to do the conversion yourself, I could give you the instructions. However, since your form the U.K. I could do the conversion for you if you send me your K1/K3 as long as we don't have the Brexit. I only charge the required HW (Arduino, resistors, LEDs) and postage, service is for free as always. At the same time I could set the correct mileage and do the backlight LED swap if required. Most people go for blue backlight :)

I would not really recommend K5/K6 as there is a lot more to do to get those working on the TL.

Hiya I have taken the plunge and landed a set of sv1000 clocks , would you he able to work your magic on them ref audrino? If so what would the cost be ? Need to get this bike done as they have started road works by me and it's now taking me over r a hour to do the 6 mile commute I need a bike lol
