4 Preparation for installing and connecting the instrument
4.1 Required knowledge and abilities
Installing and connecting the motoscope classic and its additional equipment requires no special
knowledge or abilities if exact attention is paid to the following installation guide. A reasonable
technical understanding should be sufficient. The motoscope classic can be installed on a wide
range of different vehicles with different specifications and equipment. Therefore, it is not possible
to cover all special cases within this description. In cases of doubt, please consult the information
supplied on our web site (see Support). If installation of the motoscope classic still seems to be too
complicated, we recommend installation by a professional expert.
4.2 Required materials for installing and connecting the instrument
The motoscope classic is made for a wide range of vehicles. Therefore, additional materials are
necessary in order to install the gauge to an individual vehicle. Such materials are:
4
•
•
•
•
•
mounting bracket for instrument
mounting bracket for speedometer sensor and push button
push button
cables or cable extensions for voltage supply, ignition signal and push button
assembly materials like cable ties, plug connectors, shrink hose, soldering iron, solder etc.
The use of correct wiring diagrams for the vehicle concerned is also highly recommended.
In order to install the delivered connecting plugs correctly, a suitable crimping tool must be used.
The delivered speedometer sensor equipped with a 1.5m long connecting cable, which makes it
possible to mount it the front or rear wheel.
Pushbuttons are not part of the standard scope of delivery. They can be chosen individually from
our optional equipment offers. Alternatively the vehicle’s headlight flashing switch can be used.
If you don't use a motogadget mounting bracket, you have to made your own bracket by using
aluminium with 3mm thickness or stainless steel with 2mm thickness.
5 Quick start
This section provides a guide to quick installation and connection of the motoscope classic:
•
Prepare all necessary items as mounting bracket for instrument and speed sensor, cable,
connectors, screw adhesive and tools for installation
•
Provide wiring harness diagram of the vehicle and terminal location plan of the motoscope
classic (see the appendix of this installation guide)
•
Choose suitable positions for installing the motoscope classic and the speedometer sensor.
Select a point to which the cables will be routed in order to connect the motoscope classic,
speedometer sensor and the pushbutton to each other. If necessary, cut the motogadget
mounting bracket for the instrument to fit your vehicle or manufacture your own bracket.
Design and make a mounting bracket for the speedometer sensor and attach it to the point
you have selected. Subsequently, mount the instrument and all sensors on the vehicle.
•
Locate the “switched plus” on the wiring harness of the vehicle by using a voltage indication
device (multi-meter). “Switched plus” means current must not flow until electric power is
switched “on”.
•
Remove the battery of your vehicle or remove the cable from the earth battery terminal
•
Locate the negative terminal of one ignition coil (primary circuit!) and route a cable from this
point to the terminal point that you have chosen in stage. If connect to a CDI ignition system,
read the corresponding chapter first.
•
Route cables from the voltage supply, speedometer sensor and the push button their chosen
terminals. Then connect all cables according to the circuit diagram provided in the appendix to
this manual. Connect the cables correctly by using the supplied plug connectors
•
Re-connect the vehicle battery and turn the voltage supply “on”.
•
Navigate to the setup menu (Chapter 12) and adjust all necessary parameters for engine
speed, the rev. counter scale, the speedometer and the sensors.
•
Start the engine and watch the rev. counter. If it works correctly, ride carefully and slowly for
some meters and check the speedometer for plausibility. If you do not detect any problems
regarding the electrical or mechanical functioning of the instrument or the vehicle itself
continue the test ride.

6 General safety instructions
•
•
•
•
•
Please take care during installation. Damaged parts cannot be returned to motogadget.
Avoid scratching or damaging the surface of the motoscope classic, and take care not to
damage screw threads.
For safety reasons, the vehicle battery must be disconnected prior to the installation.
Take particular care that all delivered parts are fastened securely to your vehicle. This is
important for your own and other peoples’ safety.
Make sure that your vehicle is equipped with an interference suppressing ignition system. Use
of the motoscope classic with a non-suppressed ignition system will lead to serious damage
to the device!
7 Installation of the motoscope classic
Instrument fastening screws size is M4. To avoid distortions of the threaded bores, the fastening
bolts must be screwed into the instrument housing to a depth of 3 mm. The maximum screw-in
length of 5mm must not be exceeded. We recommend the use of additional washers and screw
adhesive. The maximum torque applied to the M4 fastening screws must not exceed 8 Nm.
8 Connecting of the motoscope classic and the wiring harness
8.1 Cable routing recommendations
Before routing cables look for suitable cable paths. In general, the cables should be as far away as
possible from hot parts of the engine as well as from electrical sources such as spark coils and
ignition leads. This avoids malfunctions of the instrument due to strong electromagnetic fields. For
functional reasons, an exception is made here for the cable that connects the ignition system itself
to the instrument. Look for a suitable place for the respective cables to meet with their plugs and
for the plugs to be connected with one another. This is usually in the headlight housing or
somewhere below the gas tank. Make sure you take note of the required lengths of cables before
cutting them for best fit. It is important here to consider the full lock of the handlebars as well as the
front and rear wheel travel! All cables should be routed free of kinks and should not be subject to
any tension. In addition, the cables have to be properly isolated, especially in places where
mechanical wear can take place. For fastening the cables we recommend cable ties of synthetic
material.

8.3 Recommendations for using the plug connectors
Route all required cables to the place where the hardware connection of the instrument and its
wiring harness is located. Consider the possibility of bringing several strands of wire to one contact
before crimping the corresponding pin. It is therefore advisable to carry out all the crimping work at
the end of the electrical assembly.
7
Use a crimping tool suitable for uninsulated cable lugs and crimp the corresponding contact pin to
its strand(s) of wire. Then lead the pin from behind into the right plug opening. Pay attention to the
position of the pin's barbs, which must click into the plug connector housing for a correct
attachment.
8.4 Battery and voltage supply
The Motoscope require “switched plus” for the voltage supply. That means electrical power will
flow if ignition lock is switched “on”. The motoscope classic can operate in a voltage range from 9 V
to 18 V DC. Operating the instrument without a battery, for example, using a direct connection to
the vehicle's generator is not envisaged or recommended! Please ensure that the polarity of the
voltage supply is correct.
Attention!
THE MINIMAL SUPPLY CABLE WIDTH IS 0,75MM². YOU MUST FUSE THE +12V POWER
SUPPLY CABLE WITH A 5A FUSE. IF DEVICE WILL BE USE WITHOUT FUSE, DAMAGE AT
THE CONNECTING CABLE OR THE MOTOSCOPE ITSELF CAN CAUSE A SHORTCUT AND A
CABLE FIRE. THERE MAY BE RISK OF YOUR LIFE! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CAPABLE TO
CONNECT THE INSTRUMENT PROPERLY. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE, LET THE SHOP DO THE
JOB!
9 Installation and connection of sensors and the pushbutton
9.1 The pushbutton
A pushbutton is needed in order to handle the instrument. This must be a non-locking switch.
The pushbutton is not part of the standard supply because it is possible to use, e.g. the original
head-light-flasher-switch of the vehicle concerned. Different pushbuttons can be ordered from our
optional equipment supply.
By pressing the pushbutton it is possible to alternate between different screens on the display in
order to call up different read-outs. Furthermore, all pre-adjustments of the LCD, the LEDs, and all
other set-ups are carried out with this button.
We recommend fastening the pushbutton onto the handlebar, close to the grip. Connect one of its
terminals with the green cable of the motoscope light and the other one with the earth (-). Polarity
is not relevant in this case (see diagram in chapter 16.1).
9.2 Compatibility with ignition systems
Connect the motoscope yellow engine speed input cable to the negative terminal of one spark coil
or to the corresponding terminal of the ignition box [clamp 1 or earth].
This cable must not be connected to the high-tension system of the ignition!
The motoscope classic can be used with all conventional ignitions that switch to earth/minus. If it is
connected to a CDI ignition system the motogadget ignition pickup must used.
In all cases the ignition system must be interference suppressed.
In order to get a correct indication of the engine speed it is necessary to carry out the correct
adjustments within the set-up menu (see below).
9.3 Installation and connection of the speedometer sensor
The delivered speedometer sensor is a dry reed contact, which is triggered by a magnetic field.
Therefore, both delivered magnets must be attached to the wheel with the contained epoxy glue.
Make sure the distance between one magnet and wheel centre is not larger than 20 cm. Make sure
both magnets are aligned exactly opposite. This means they are located at one line which goes
trough the wheel centre. If the magnets are not aligned exactly, the displayed speed will jump. Use
i.e. break disc mounting screws to have an exactly mounting alignment.
The speedometer sensor has to be attached to the vehicle by using a self made holding bracket.
The sensor tip has to be fastened parallel to the magnet's surface. The gap between the magnet
and the sensor must not exceed 3 mm and the sensor must not touch the magnet or any other
rotating parts. The sensor holding bracket has to be made sufficiently stable in order to prevent any
8
distance changes during any driving situations. The maximum mounting torque of the sensor nuts
is 2 Nm. For secure mounting we recommend to use screw adhesive (medium strength).
Subsequently, connect one cable of the speedometer sensor with +12 V ("switched plus") and the
other one with the white cable of the motoscope mini. Polarity is not relevant.
If your vehicle provides an original speedometer sensor output of +12V and is compatible with the
motoscope connect the orange cable of the motoscope directly to this output.
ATTENTION!
IF ONE END OF THE DELIVERED SPEEDOMETER SENSOR IS CONNECTED WITH +12V AND
THE OTHER OPEN END TOUCHING VEHICLE EARTH ACCIDENTALLY, THE SENSOR WILL
BE DESTROYED.
THE MAGNET WILL BE DEFECTIVE, IF IT IS EXPOSED TEMPERATURES HIGHER THAN
100°C OR 212°F (I.E. HOT BRAKES).
9.4 The gear shift light output
The gear shift light output of the motoscope classic (brown cable) can switch a external gear shift
light. The maximum current output is 1 A. The output drains to vehicle earth. If a LED lamp is
connected, observe the correct polarity.
9.5 Connection of optional temperature and pressure sensors
Please note: We can guarantee compatibility only with motogadget sensors and transmitters.
Before assembling sensors and thread adapters, check whether the sensor, its thread size, type,
lead and length is correct for the vehicle concerned. Ensure that seal faces and wrap connections
are clean and that you are aware of the maximum torque that can be applied.
Our sensors usually obtain their negative polarity from the vehicle earth. This means only one
cable is needed from the temperature or pressure sensor to the connecting plug of the instrument.
9.6 Connection of the control and warning lamps
Since the four control lamps are LED, it is important to be aware of the polarity of the connection
(see diagram).
9.6.1 The yellow indicator LED
The indicator LED has two connections at the 9-pole connecting plug, which is designed for one
connecting cord with negative polarity and one connecting cord with positive polarity. It is not
important which connection carries which polarity. If an indicator lamp cable is already installed on
the vehicle simply connect it to the indicator light terminals in the 9-pole plug. If no such lamp is
available, please follow the terminal connection diagram in the appendix.
9.6.2 The blue high beam LED
The input for high beam indicator LED must have positive polarity. In most cases the original lamps
installed on the vehicle are also designed in this way. If not, route a direct connection from the high
beam connection within the headlight.
9.6.3 The green idle gear LED
The idle gear input must be vehicle earth. If this is not the case, use a direct connection from the
idle gear switch that switches to earth.
9.6.4 The red control and warning LED
The red warning LED has different functions. It indicates when the pre-adjusted engine speed limit
is exceeded by flashing rapidly. It also indicates when pre-adjusted values for minimum or
maximum temperatures and pressures are exceeded with a constant red light.
9
Additional sensors can also be attached to this terminal (e.g. oil pressure switches). However, a
prerequisite for this option is that these sensors can switch between ON and OFF, and that their
polarity corresponds to the predefined polarity of the LED!
10 Putting the instrument into the initial operation phase
Once all parts are installed securely and all cables are connected properly, fit the connecting plugs
together. Re-install the battery and switch on the ignition or voltage supply. If the electrical
connection is correct the indicator will move and make a 'home run' to the indicator stop. The
backlight of the LCD will also light up and the start display ("motogadget") will appear. Shortly after
this, the device will switch automatically to the speed indication and mileage recorder display. If this
doesn't happen, turn off the ignition immediately! In such a case all connection terminals on the
instrument and all cables have to be re-checked systematically.
If all indications appear correctly, start the engine and watch the rev.-counter needle. The read-out
should change according to the engine speed. If not, the corresponding adjustment must be made
in the set-up menu. If everything works correctly up to this point, continue with further settings in
the set-up menu.
11 Operation and use of the instrument
11.1 General instructions for operation
All functions of the instrument are activated using only one pushbutton. Compressing the button for
different times provides access to different levels of the display and the setup.
The system distinguishes between three compression times, which are represented visually by
three horizontal bars in the first line of the LCD.
Stage 1: < 1 sec
Stage 2:
one bar is shown on the display. Function: mainly choice of the next
option or counting up of a numbers
1 sec – 3 sec Two bars are shown in the display Function: mainly choice of the
next/subordinate level or choice of the next digit. Deletion of stored
values
Stage 3: > 3 sec
three bars are shown in the display. Function: mainly choice of the
previous/primary level or leaving the menu item.
You can find the exact sequences for the set-up menu in the flow chart
in the appendix (16.3).
11.2 Analogue indication of the engine speed
If the specific parameters of the vehicle and the correct rev. counter scale for the instrument have
been entered into the setup, the indicator needle of the rev. counter will show the correct engine
speed on the dial face. If the pointer is oscillating too much, another engine speed input filter (InpF)
and or another damping factor (DAMP) have to be selected in the setup.
The rev. counter scale of the motoscope classic is available for ranges of 0 – 8000 rpm, 0 – 10,000
rpm and 0 – 14,000 rpm, which must be predefined in the setup.
If the vehicle power is switches off while the engine is running the needle will stop on its last
position. This is normal for stepper motor controlled instruments and not a malfunction. The pointer
will calibrate during power on the instrument.
11.2.1 Engine speed limit indication by the red warning LED
The ultra bright red warning LED (triangle symbol on the right) flashes when a pre-adjusted engine
speed value is reached (see sub-menu "flash" in the set-up). The pre-adjusted engine speed limit
also switches the output for the external gear-shift light. The flashing light can also be altered to a
constantly glowing light (see FIM in set-up).
10
11.3 Indications on the LC display
11.3.1 Choosing indications on the LC display
The LC display of the motoscope classic has two lines of data. After switching on the instrument
'motogadget' appears briefly in the display. Subsequently, the driving speed appears in the first line
and the total mileage in the second line. Other values can now be called up in the second line by
pushing the menu push-button briefly (only one horizontal bar appears – see 11.1). The range of
values that can be accessed on the display is determined by preselection (see SCREEN) in the
set-up menu.
11.3.2 Speed display (km/h or mph)
The current vehicle speed is shown permanently in the top line of the LC display. The
measurement range is between 0 and 350 km/h or mph. The unit of measurement can be selected
in the set-up menu (see SEL).
11.3.3 Trip counter ( km or mi)
The trip odometer function shows the current day mileage in the second line of the LCD. The
distance covered is indicated by a value between 0 and 999.99 km or mi. After reaching the latter
value the counter starts again at 0 mi or km. The highest values are permanently stored. To ensure
accuracy, make sure the starting value is set at the beginning of a ride (compress the pushbutton
until two bars appear in the display, then release it).
11.3.4 Odometer (km or Mi)
The total odometer shows the total distance covered since the instrument was put into operation,
provided that no other starting value has been entered. The reading can be shown in kilometres or
miles. The value remains stored even if the entire board is switched OFF. The total odometer can
be reset to 0 within the special sub-category 'RESET/ALL' in the set-up menu. If you wish you can
of course choose starting value other than zero – (see set-up menu ODO2set).
11.3.5 Trip time (hh:mm:ss)
The time counter for the current ride (stop-watch) measures the actual riding time because
counting stops when the vehicle stands idle. The riding time is recorded to the precise second up
to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The recorded time also remains stored when the board
tension is switched OFF. This value can be reset any time.
11.3.6 Vehicle system voltage (V)
This value shows the current vehicle system voltage in a range between 9 V and 18 V.
11.3.7 Temperature indication T1; optional air (air) or water temperature (h2o)
This indication shows the current air or water temperature as soon as the values are within the
measurement range of the sensors. Outside the measurement range the display shows " -- ".
In the set-up menu it is possible to define a minimum and maximum value for T1 within the
measurement range of the sensor (see minT and maxT). Once the minT and maxT have been
defined for T1 and the temperature is within the sensor range, the red warning LED will flash and a
report will be displayed on the LCD until the defined minimum value has been reached or when the
maximum temperature has been exceeded.
Confirming the warnings by pressing the button wiöll cause the flashing to stop and the LCD report
to disappear. Temperature values can be defined in degrees °C or °F (see set-up).
11.3.8 Temperature indication T2; oil temperature (oil)
This value shows the current oil temperature as soon as it is within the measurement range of the
sensor. The same applies as for T1 regarding minimum and maximum values and units of
measurement.
11
11.3.9 Oil pressure indication (bar or psi)
This value shows the current oil pressure as soon as it is within the measurement range of the
sensor. For minimum and maximum values the same is valid as for T1 (minP, maxP). Pressure
values can be shown in units of bar or psi (see set-up).
2
11.3.10 Current acceleration (m/s )
2
2
This value shows the current acceleration in a range of -20 m/s to +20 m/s . Negative values are
generated during braking. All maximum values get stored automatically (see below).
11.3.11 Engine speed indication on the LCD (RPM)
This value shows the current engine speed as a numerical value on the LCD display in a range
between 0 and 20,000 rpm. This indication also requires vehicle-specific pre-settings in the set-up
menu.
11.3.12 Speed average (km/h or mph)
This value shows the average speed of all rides since the value was reset to zero. This indication
has a range between 0 mph and 350 mph (or km/h).
11.3.13 Acceleration time from 0-100 km/h (sec)
This function measures the time in seconds for an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (or mph). In
order to carry out that measurement the pushbutton has to be pressed until a small square appears
to the left of the value 0.0 s. The instrument is now ready to measure acceleration. Measurement
begins automatically. The small square only appears when the current speed is 0 km/h (or mph). If
the display shows a measurement, this has to be deleted before the new measurement can be
carried out (press the push button until two bars appear).
11.3.14 Maximum driving speed memory (km/h or mph)
This function stores and shows the top speed reached until it is reset to 0.
11.3.15 Maximum engine speed memory (RPM)
This function stores and shows the achieved maximum engine speed until it is reset to 0.
2
11.3.16 Maximum positive acceleration memory (m/s )
This function stores and shows the achieved maximum positive acceleration until is reset to 0.
2
11.3.17 Maximum negative acceleration memory (m/s )
This function stores and shows the achieved maximum negative acceleration until it is reset to 0.
11.3.18 Gear position indicator
This function shows the gear position engaged currently as a number from 1 – 6. The gear position
is shown on the LCD to the left of the driving speed indication. A correct display of the gear
position requires prior execution of a "learning" function. This enables the device to "learn" the gear
transmission ratios of the respective vehicle. The gear position indication is a mathematical
function and is calculated using ratios of the driving speed and engine speed. This means that no
other sensors or connections for measurements are required. If an idle gear switch is attached to
the instrument, the display indicates if the idle gear is engaged. In this case the display shows an N
and the control LED flashes. Further details regarding the "learning" function can be found in the
corresponding chapter in the set-up menu (set-up→ sub-point PARAM → sub-point GearTCH)
12
11.4 Erase measurements
Certain measurements, such as trip odometer values, trip times, the average driving speed, as well
as the acceleration values and all other maximum values can be reset to 0. All these resets are
carried out by selecting the corresponding display with the menu pushbutton and subsequently by
pushing and holding the button until 2 bars appear in the display (holding time > 1 and < 3 sec.).
12 The Setup menu
All operations, adjustments, and calibrations of the motoscope classic are carried out using a
single pushbutton. For this reason the internal design of the set-up is laid out in logical "levels." The
selection of and access to these levels as well as to their sub-points is controlled using different
button compression times. The different times are represented visually by 1, 2 or 3 horizontal bars
on the LCD. This optical control ensures an easy navigation as well as the correct input of data.
In order to enter the set-up menu the pushbutton has to be engaged until all 3 bars appear on the
LCD. After releasing the pushbutton SETUP MENUE appears in the display. Shortly after this, the
first sub-point of the set-up (SCREEN) appears in the first line of the LCD. The second line already
shows the first sub-point of SCREEN, which is "ODO1 on". As long as the small square is shown in
the first line (left of SCREEN) it is possible to retrieve the other sub-points such as LCD, MOTOR,
PARAM, SENSOR or RESET. These sub-points are called up by tapping the pushbutton for less
then 1 sec. (one bar must be displayed). In order to enter one of the above-mentioned sub-levels
(e.g. ODO1 on) the pushbutton must be pressed until 2 bars appear on the LCD. At the same time
the small square jumps to the second line of the LCD, in order to indicate that the chosen sub-point
can be altered within this level. In order to leave the set-up, the pushbutton must be pressed until
all 3 bars appear in the LCD (> 3 sec.). The pushbutton should then be released. The diagram in
section 16.3 provides more information on how to select and access the different levels, sub-points
and adjustments.
12.1 Sub-point SCREEN (adjusting the display)
This sub-point enables the user to select which measurements and functions are displayed on the
LCD. Pressing the pushbutton > 1 sec. (until 2 bars appear) enables the user to access the submenu SCREEN and to move from function to function within this menu. Press the push button
again for > 1 sec. (2 bars) results in an arrow appearing to the left of the selected function. Now the
function can be set 'ON' or 'OFF' by pressing the push button < 1 sec. (1 bar). As default value all
functions are set to 'ON'. The following functions can be altered:
ODO1 (trip odometer)
ODO2 (total odometer)
Time (trip time)
Volt (board voltage)
TMP1 (temperature 1)
TMP2 (temperature 2)
PRES (pressure)
ACCE (acceleration)
RPM (engine speed)
AVG (average driving speed)
0100 (time measurement 0 - 100 km/h)
MAXS (maximum driving speed)
MAXR (maximum engine speed)
MAXA (maximum positive acceleration)
MINA (maximum negative acceleration)
In order to leave the setting mode of the function, the pushbutton must be pressed until 3 bars
appear on the LCD. This takes the instrument back to the set-up menu. To return to the sub-point
SCREEN, press the pushbutton again until all 3 bars appear and then let it go.
13
12.2 Sub-point LCD (adjusting the display)
The navigation to this sub-point is explained by the diagram in the appendix (section 16.3).
Within this sub-point the contrast (CNTR) of the LCD is adjusted in steps of 1 to 7. Attention! Step
7 is followed by step 0, which means that the display disappeares! If this happens simply go on
pushing the button until the signs appear again in the display.
12.3 Sub-point MOTOR (adjusting the stepper motor)
The navigation to this sub-point is explained by the diagram in the appendix (section 16.3).
Within this sub-point the electronic attenuation of the stepper motor/needle is adjusted (DAMP) in
steps of 1 to 9. Step 9 provides the highest degree of attenuation to counter needle fluctuations.
However, the speed of the needle can also decrease at high attenuation levels and it is important
to find a good compromise. ATTENTION: this value may also influence adjustments in InpF (see
below).
The MOTOR menu point also allows the user to select the scale of the rev counter. The following
scales can be selected under SCL: 8 K, 10 K or 14 k.
12.4 Sub-point PARAM (vehicle specific adjustments)
The navigation to this sub-point is explained by the diagram in the appendix (section 16.3). Under
this sub-point the vehicle-specific values are entered and the version of the device software is
shown.
The value WHLSIZE represents the circumference of the wheel (in mm!) on which the proximity
switch is fitted (e.g. 1830 mm = 120/60 ZR17, 1870 mm = 120/65 ZR17, 1910 mm = 120/70 ZR17;
it is important to check these values yourself since they can differ depending on the tyre
manufacturer!)
ImpWHL represents the number of impulses transmitted to the proximity switch per wheel turn. For
example, if the sensor is aimed at the brake disc screws, the number to be entered corresponds to
the number of screws (e.g. 6).
The values entered in WHLSIZE and ImpWHL are used to calculate the driving speed and many
other measurements. It is therefore important to take the necessary care when entering these data
and to check the speedometer readings for plausibility before taking the vehicle out onto the road!
If incorrect data, calculated measurements will also be incorrectl. Another option of defining
calculation factors for the driving speed is offered by the function TTeach (speedometer teach)
within the sub-point SENSOR (see 12.5). However, directly entering values via WHLSIZE and
ImpWHL is preferable, since this method is more precise.
The function ImpENG enables the user to calibrate the rev. counter, which involves entering the
number of ignition impulses generated per crankshaft turn. This input value can depend on the
number of cylinders, the engine construction and/or the ignition. If you are uncertain regarding this
value, you should consult an expert or your dealer/manufacturer. If the vehicle is still equipped with
its original rev. counter, this can be used as a reference. If the entered factor is incorrect the engine
speed that is displayed is usually either half or double the true value. Possible values range from
0.25 to 9 impulses.
Under SEL the user can select either kilometres or miles as the unit to measures distances and
driving speed. The value InpF offer a choice of four filters - A, B, C or D – for the measurement of
engine speed. The pre-adjusted filter A works for almost all ignitions. If the rev. counter needle
nevertheless jitters strongly the other filters should be tried. Attention! This adjustment may also
influence the attenuation setting under DAMP.
The sub-point Gear Tch enables you to access the "learning" function for the gear position
indication and the necessary "learning" countdown. Call up the set-up menu with the pushbutton
and navigate under PARAM to the sub-point Gear Tch and activate by pressing until 2 horizontal
bars appear on the LCD (one arrow and READY will appear in the display). Push the button again
(< 1 sec.) G1 will appear. Pressing the button again starts the "learning" function for the first gear
but not yet the necessary countdown (G1 is shown in the LCD and two arrows appear to the right).
14
After the device has "learned" the first gear repeat the process for all other gears (maximum up to
G6).
Starting the teach countdown: As long as the 2 arrows are visible on the LCD the time for activating
the countdown can be chosen by the user, because it has to be activated during a calibration ride.
A further short button press starts the countdown from 10 seconds to 0. Important! At this time the
indicated gear already must be engaged and must not be shifted! Also the clutch must not be
engaged!
During countdown (calibration) the driving and engine speeds must be changed (by varying the
degree of throttle) and the front brake should be engaged until about ¼ of the max. engine speed is
reached (without engaging the clutch!). This allows for tolerances to be ascertained within the gear
transmission ratio (e.g. load change reactions, slip). Rear wheel spin and front wheel blocking must
be avoided during the calibration as this hampers measurement and the process will have to be
started again. Should this be necessary, push and hold the menu button until 3 horizontal bars
appear in the LCD. This will cause the device to return to the starting display from where the
learning process can be started again. Repeat the accelerating and braking process during the
countdown and drive continuously during the last few seconds. Stop driving and navigate to the
next gear in the display and prepare it for the next countdown as described above. Then continue
the calibration ride and start the countdown only when the respective driving gear has been
engaged. Repeat this procedure until all gears are calibrated. If less than 6 gears are available and
the instrument offers you the option of calibrating a non-existent gear, the process can be stopped
by pushing the button. Alternately, you can simply allow the countdowns for the non-existent gears
to reach zero.
The "learning" procedures for different gears can be carried out at different times. In all cases
activate Gear Tch, select the respective gear and prepare its calibration as described above.
There is no time limit for starting the countdown. The countdown should therefore not be activated
until the driving situation makes it expedient to record the data for this gear.
After completing the procedure check the display while riding to see if the calibration is correct. In
rare cases, gear indication may incorrect in threshold situations.
Since calibration requires a fair degree of concentration, we recommend that you do not conduct
this procedure in public traffic.
The thresholds for engine speed limits ('red area') can be set using the function FLASH. This
setting can also be used to control the activation of an external gear shift light. This function can be
used to indicate optimal gear shift revolution speeds or to indicate to the driver when the
recommended maximum engine speed has been reached.
In order to select the individual digits representing the desired threshold engage the pushbutton for
a short time (1 bar appears). In order to go to the next digit push the button until 2 bars appear on
the LCD. To leave the level operate the pushbutton, as always, until 3 bars appear.
Within the next sub-point FlM you can select whether the warning LED or the external gear shift
light flashes on and off (Alt) or glows constantly (Lev).
The final PARAM sub-point shows the number of the software version (V) being used (e.g. V1.06).
This cannot be adjusted by the customer but can be important for support enquiries.
12.5 The sub-point SENSOR (adjusting the sensors)
The navigation to this sub-point is explained by the diagram in the appendix (section 16.3). This
sub-point allows you to select which sensors are to be used.
Under T1 you can choose whether air or water temperature is to be measured. This presupposes
of course that a corresponding sensor is available. Under Temp the temperature unit can be
defined, either as degrees Celsius [C°] or Fahrenheit [°F]. Under PRS the pressure units can be
adjusted to be shown in bar or psi.
Under the sub-point H2OmaxT the upper threshold is entered for the water temperature.
Under the sub-point H2OminT the lower threshold is entered for the water temperature.
Under the sub-point OILmaxT the upper threshold is entered for the oil temperature.
Under the sub-point OILminT the lower threshold is entered for the oil temperature.
Under the sub-point OILmaxP the upper threshold is entered for the oil pressure.
Under the sub-point OILminP the lower threshold is entered for the oil pressure.
15
Furthermore, the sub-point TTeach (speedometer teach) affords an automatic calibration of the
speedometer. This can be helpful when using OEM driving speed sensors. In order to use this
function the vehicle must be driven as constantly as possible at exactly 50 km/h while a 10 second
countdown elapses. In order to ensure that speed is constant the vehicle should be driven behind
another vehicle that is also being driven at exactly 50 km/h. Such a procedure is undertaken at the
driver's own risk! After the countdown has elapsed the device stores the calculated values and
returns to the standard display. Following calibration driving speed measurement should be
checked for accuracy, and if necessary the procedure should be repeated. We recommend this
method only as an aid for the use of vehicle-original sensors. If possible, direct entry of data under
PARAM is preferable.
12.6 The sub-point RESET
The navigation to this sub-point is explained by the diagram in the appendix (section 16.3).
Under RESET all or individually selected values can be reset to 0 or to their default values.
Attention! If 'yes' is activated under the point ALL (RESET→ALL→yes) all adjustments and
entered data will be deleted, including the total odometer readings and the default values will be
restored! If 'yes' is activated under the point DEF the default values will be restored but the total
odometer reading will remain saved.
All adjustments (or restored default values) only become effective after leaving the set-up.
The function ODO2Set allows you to adjust of the total odometer reading.
If this function is selected and activated (see diagram in section 16.3) a six-digit number appears,
which can be adjusted to the desired value by using the pushbutton. In order to scroll through the
digits, engage the pushbutton for a short time until one bar appears. To move to the next number
position press the button has to be hold until 2 bars appear. To leave the sub-point, press the
button until 3 bars appear.
13 Cleaning of the instrument
Use only gentle, non-corrosive detergents and a soft cloth for cleaning the motoscope classic. Do
not clean the instrument with a steam cleaner and avoid using anything that might scratch the
aluminium housing and the dial face cover. The use of silicon spray from time to time keeps the
colour of the anodised housing fresh and protects the instrument from dirt.
14 Safety instructions
The motoscope classic provides a lot of information at one time. Users consequently require a
certain "training" period in order to learn to recognise all the given information quickly and correctly.
Please take this into account, particularly during your first rides with the motoscope classic.
The user is responsible for the correct installation of the speedometer sensor as the input of all
calculation factors for speed determination, such as the wheel circumference and the triggered
impulses per wheel revolution. The user is also responsible for mounting the instrument, the
sensors, and all other accessory parts to the vehicle correctly and securely.

15 Troubleshooting
15.1 After the installation and during the initial operating phase
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
switch the vehicle voltage “ON” and “OFF” for some seconds
check functions with the motor on and off
vehicle battery should be charged sufficiently and the vehicle system voltage must be higher
than 9 V.
check all cables, connections, and sensors for correct installation and good contacts.
check all cables, connections, and sensors for correct polarities and/or short-circuits.
make sure that the vehicle has a interference suppressed ignition system. Running the
motoscope with an ignition system without interference suppressed may damage the device
If the above mentioned attempts do not help, switch OFF the ignition/voltage supply and
separate the sensor cable, the push button cable, and the ignition impulse cable from the
device. Then connect the voltage supply only and check that the polarity is correct.
In case of wrong settings set all data to their default values (see RESET→DEF, section 12.6).
If you still have no success try resetting all values (see RESET→ALL, section 12.6)
