It is common knowledge that the Koso CHT gauge reads significantly low ( up to 30*F) when paired with the Aracer ECU (specifically the Mini5).

Is this also not going to give a true reading with the mini5?

Is this taken from (spliced) the oil temp sensor on the left side of the head?

Inquiring minds want to know... :big smile:

That's a great question.

From What OPMID told us...... ONE of the reasons for the re-design is for .....
(An Updated program corresponding to Aracer ECU was added to the unit)

So... would have to assume that it's like a Firmware update patch.

The Grom moniker "there is always one more thing to buy", has struck again!

I have volunteered to be the guinea pig on this one.

Hopefully this reads true with the Mini5 ECU...

Will report back sometime mid next week.

Looking forward to complete review.

Here is my review of the Opmid CHT V2 gauge.

I used 4 thermometers for this test.

1. The Koso Mini3 (CHT) that I have been running. Been reading 10*F high.
1. A stand alone thermometer.
3. Koso ambient air temp, mini3 (AIT)
4. Opmid CHT V2

First I hooked up both the Koso mini3 & the Opmid in series to see if it would give me a reading on both gauges. Yes it does.

I then hooked up the Opmid by its self & got the same reading.

Ambient air temp in my garage around 70*F

This is the readings I got from the Opmid @70.0*F. It has 7 settings to choose from.
1-36.5
2-24.5
3-85.5
4-47.5
5-35.5
6-20.0
7-70.2

Koso AIT mini3 read 72.0
Koso CHT mini3 read 76.0 (corrected) this is the least accurate Temperature.
Stand alone Temp. read 70.0

Says in the directions to use setting #7 for the aRacer ECU's.

Incidentally, The Opmid kit has a couple harnesses to pull power from under the headlight area. I am not doing that, since I have installed a relay off the battery, triggered by the rear brake running light.

Also in the package is a mount for the handlebars. Cheap, but effective.

From what I can tell setting #7 is close enough, if not right at the target @70*F. Setting 7 is good to go for the aRacer ECU's correct temperature reading. Stan approved!

**The above test was not done under scientific conditions**

Bottom line is can you read the gauge in direct sunlight when riding during the day, that is what I was having with the original Opmin gauge with the Blue LED, yes it could read great at night but could not see the screen during day light riding or bright sun light, and there was no real intensity adjustment for that.

I believe, this V2 gauge has green readout.

I need to ck, as I never really paid that much attention.

Additionally, I cleaned up my OP, I was in a rush & it showed...

EDIT: I can confirm it is indeed green. Might be better? Might not.

Raining here, can't get out & test. And we have a hurricane headed close to the neighborhood.

Do you have it set to t-2? I had the same problem until I fixed that.

Chad,

I think initially, I had it set to t-2. I really can't remember. The gauge, at the time, read damn near 30*F high, by my super scientific early morning garage test. :)

I then picket the T number that was the closest to ambient temp in the morning in the garage. I ended up 10*F over ambient.

I don't remember what number I ended up with.

Cool. That setting is buried in the last page of the manual. Many of us have missed it.

No one has answered the readability of the new gauge during normal day light riding esp in bright sun light
I hear you Cisco loud and clear, i really do!

Due to the fact that I ended up installing after dark, you will have to wait until the morning hours before I can finish my review and answer that question. It is quite the possibility that I will not have bright sunshine due to the current weather conditions.

I promise as soon as I can test in the bright sunshine I will let inquiring minds know.

Very cool of you to take the time to post this feedback.

Otay peeps...

Took a ride to the bank. On the way there I had the sun to my face & the way back it was over my shoulder. I was wearing heavily dark tinted sunglasses. Still had the protective wrapper on the Opmid gauge. And it had air bubbles under it.

On the way there I could read my DG-1 & Opmid gauge just fine.

On the way back, I could not read my DG-1 but I could read my Opmid gauge.

Not super scientific, just MHO.

Once again I give it two thumbs up and a Z back snap! (In Living Color reference, Men on Film) :star:

That's great news. Good to hear the extra time and money they spent upgrading the OPMID was worth the wait.

thanks for the update
So green LED is brighter than the Blue LED Opmin gauge
I did not say that Cisco!

I cannot vouch for that, because I never had the blue one. YMMV

I agree.

I would consider this "the one more thing to buy" if you have an aRacer Mini5.

One could argue that you can read the CHT from the app on your phone. Which you can, in Celsius. 'Mericans do not do well with Celsius, myself included. Plus, with the Opmid, it is always visible, no need for a RAM mount for the phone, etc.

Now if we 'Mericans can get aRacer to write some software in *F and use feet & miles, this would, in my opinion, be a game changer to some degree. Not to mention the extremely poor factory support...

Hardracing you need to get this done! Throw your weight around!
