SP TAKEGAWA Super Multi DM Meter for Honda Monkey 125
About quality and texture - Top quality. Straight out of the box this meter just looks premium with it's stainless steel bezel and red tacho needle.
About the feeling of use - I'm looking forward to the extra features this meter offers over my current add on tachometer. The gear indicator and ability to monitor the battery voltage has been very much wanted.
Products to buy together - Now that I will be removing my add on tachometer I will be adding a windshield, lots to choose from here on Webike but I dog the look of the one from RIDEA.
Difficulty of installation - This meter is simple to install. You need to run a wire to the ignition coil and the wire for your temperature indication but the remaining wires just connect to the OEM wiring harness, no cutting required. Start to finish should take you an hour to have a tidy install and operational. English instructions can be downloaded from the Takegawa Japan website.
Cost performance and comparison with other products - This meter is slightly more expensive then the one available from OPMID and has the same features but the Takegawa meter has a more OEM look to it with the stainless steel bezel and analog tach needle.
About shipping and packaging - Sea freight is my preferred shipping option and usually arrives in Australia in 6 to 8 weeks from dispatch. Always well packaged to ensure parts arrive safety and are ready for use.
Any concerns, cautions, or advice when purchasing - The photo I have attached and the downloaded english instructions indicate this meter works on the JB02 and the new JB03 Monkey 125 model.
SP TAKEGAWA Super Multi DM Meter สำหรับ Honda Monkey 125
I was prepared for a long delivery time, but the order was delivered in one month instead of three months when I placed the order. It is a good product that gives you all the information you might need for the price. Installation is as simple as replacing the OEMMeter and interrupting the oil temperature SensorWiring and ignition CoilWiring. As for personal requests. ? I want automatic brightness adjustment during the day and night. If it is set to daytime, it is dazzling at night. (Sensor is needed if the light is always on spec.) ? The calculated Shift indicator avoids putting the car into the phantom 5th gear, but it only shows Neutral when stopped, making it difficult to be practical. Like other companies' shift indicators, I would like to see Sensor replacement. ? I would like the clock to be 12 or 24 hour display selectable instead of 12 hour chart. The Oil Temperature Meter uses the OEMSensor in the Head section, so the temperature will be high, but by switching the MODE, it is possible to display temperatures close to the Crankcase (Drain) in a pseudo manner. Currently, it is less expensive than other companies' dedicated meters, and can be made multifunctional without losing the OEM style. (It may be delivered sooner than expected?).
SP TAKEGAWA Small Tachometer Kit for Honda Monkey 125
About quality and texture - Top Quality. Love the stainless steel body for the retro look.
About the feeling of use - The main function of the RPM reading works flawlessly and the guage is so many other helpful features, great addition to the Monkey.
Products to buy together - This guage can display a temperature reading from the engine sump via a drain bolt but you might also want to display the oil temperature reading from the OEM sensor and this can be achieved with the top indicator thermometer from OPMID.
Difficulty of installation - I found the installation of this kit very time consuming due to the wire runs to the ignition coil and oil drain bolt and the difficultly of mounting the rest of the kit was average with no special tooling required.
Cost performance and comparison with other products - For a top quality guage with so many helpful features I find the pricing excellent. Takegawa have a great range of gauges available for the Monkey here on Webike.
About shipping and packaging - I think Webike are doing their best with shipping pricing, so I'm happy. Packages ship within 24 hours and arrive very quickly from Japan.
Any concerns, cautions, or advice when purchasing - If you are not concerned about removing the OEM instrument cluster you will be better off with the Super Multi DN Meter from Takegawa. Only small increase in cost with even more features.
Maintenance of the RearBrake Caliper and replacement with a new one since the installed parts were out of date at the time of overhaul. Since rubber systems inevitably deteriorate over time, it is helpful that new OEM products are available and can be purchased and replaced with new ones.

Easy to install. Adjust carefully.
[How is it used? This is an Impression after about 3 months of installation on a GROM (2015 JC61). Size will be 420 Size with 106 LINK. Was the one you received as per Image? It was a very beautiful Gold and I was very satisfied when I put it on.
Was the installation difficult? It is a clip type, so it was very easy. It would be better to have a special tool, but I was able to replace it with thin radio pliers I bought from a 100-yen store, so if you don't have a tool, it might be OK.
How was your experience with it? I am Large satisfied with the installation and the quality. However, due to my mistake, I could not adjust the chain properly, and it seems to have been stretched unevenly after riding less than 2km from my house to the local motorcycle shop....... I am concerned about a slight jingling sound when driving.
[Included Parts:were they on? No special attachments. It comes in a bag soaked in something like Oil? to prevent Rust. It is recommended to wash it lightly with Chain cleaner before use, and then install and Grease up.
[Was there anything that disappointed you? As noted above, the jingling sound is a bit annoying. It was a little hard to tell if it was a Spec. or if it was caused by deflection due to maintenance errors, since it was ringing as soon as it started running.
Other items that would be helpful Point and hang of installation You can follow the workflow as described in any instructional video or Site.
[Availability and clarity of the Instruction Manual Instruction Manual was available. The structure is simple, so even without looking at it, it was easy enough to just replace it by lightly previewing it on Youtube before the work.
