Hi Alexander, Great project! Can you tell us more about where the small diesel came from??

About displays and buttons...

A problem with this:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SainSmart-Mega2560-1602-LCD-Keypad-Shield-Kit-4-Arduino-ATMEL-ATMEGA8U2-AVR-UK-/280929984159?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item4168bb5e9f#ht_5352wt_1150
is that it takes up MANY pins to operate.

How about the suggested: http://goo.gl/kec8S  with some colorful buttons like these:

or these (Uses only 1 pin):  http://goo.gl/X9kHD

Another suggestion: Make cabling easier by using this Arduino clone with built-in cable connectors: http://goo.gl/JyLky
See cabling ideas on  http://arduinoinfo.info  here: http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/Cables

Let us know how you are making out...

Many thanks for the input!

Indeed, the diesel is from a 5kw Generator originally (well I bought it from a generator supplies shop, but its used in generators and water pumps).

Thanks for the suggestions, but I need somewhere that ships to the UK :( The first LCD link doesnt work either,

How many pins am I left with with the first one do you know?


My bike has a digital speedo. I like it fine.

Thanks for the link to the "project".
