    1. both the 125/250 diagrams show 'LAP' on one of the ports- both say this is unused. I would like to use it for all intensive purposes, but for the life of me i can't locate any info on this portion of the kit

    2. i am seeing the logger runs off of the generated voltage of the bike and/or battery - can anyone confirm?

    3. obviously the kit is intended for 2002+ machines, but i am curious if this means it will only work with those machines

    thanks!

    Shameless plug for www.usgpru.net. There's info there about the data logger. Do you mean LAF? If so that's the suspension stuff. They are a bit pricey and I never got those. Here's the LAF sensor on Amazon as it's used for other Honda vehicles.

    The data logger runs off the bike when it's on so no battery needed. You need a battery, I used an old small 12v, to power it afterwards to download your data to your laptop or whatever you have the software on. That's what I did. I downloaded my data in my garage after I got back from the races.

    It works fine on my 98 bike which I'm pretty sure has a '98 harness. There were a few versions of the software. The different versions would work with specific firmware for the logger. A used one I bought didn't work until I got updated firmware and correct software.

    Ahh, thanks for this!!

    Battery to retrieve data makes perfect sense.

    as for the LAP - i'm not kidding there is a port on the wiring diagram that says lap, and after a little bit of scrolling through the data logger manual its clear on both the 125/250 that there is an orange connection for lap timer, but says 'UNUSED' - the LAF i have found plenty of data and different uses for, water temp sensor data being the 'coolest' i've seen

    i believe the '98 had the powervalve system with throttle pos sensor? i mostly want the kit to work on my 96 for deto/shift indication and obviously all the other data it can provide is useful. A little unsure of the uphill battle i'm facing to make it work which is seemingly growing steeper, but i couldn't pass on the deal and it all seems really cool to me to learn about even if i can't use it with my current setup

    the USGPRU link is extremely helpful - thank you!!
    haven't visited that site in at least a year, it was down when i would check a while ago

    I read through the threads, still looking for more just for kicks. I was telling my buddy Bill last night that I was born 5-7 years too late.. love living in the late 90's!
    And you're correct, I meant powerjet in my previous comment. It all seems like I should be able to get this kit up and running as long as I can source a machine to run the software.
    I have a 2010 macbook pro that apparently i can run a virtual machine or boot camp, the issue is I don't have a copy of Windows 98/ME/2000 haha!

    Going to figure out the lap timer portion - the Ducati gps comments are very helpful.

    I wish was around when USGPRU was hot

    I run it on an XP VM I installed from ISO someone gave me long ago. I run the VM in Virtualbox and it can see the data logger connected to the physical laptop the VM is running on. Back then I only had a Linux based laptop.

    Thanks all! Probably should have spent the money on top end repair/replate but, ya know, priorities? lol
