The Motoscope Tiny is a small analog gauge from Motogadget, the Germany company responsible for the modern electronic miracle that is the m-Unit. Like each and every one of their products, the Motoscope Tiny is unparalleled in construction and finish. This gauge has a classic white analog face, with a compact digital readout configurable beneath. Available with black or polished gauge bezel, if you’re on the lookout for a small gauge to complete your custom project, look no further.
Regarding installation questions, we encourage you to take a look at the product manual, which can be found here.
For more detailed information, see Motogadget’s description of the product below:
The motoscope tiny is a very compact, analogue 49 mm speedometer.
The speed is digitally measured and precisely displayed via stepping motor and indicator.
The installation diameter of 49 mm and the installation depth of only 24 mm provide various installation options.
The sophisticated technology provides for a classic look without compromise. The dial completely does without display sections or LCD and has a convincing classical look. The ideal solution for purists and minimalists.
The high quality aluminium casing is turned from solid metal and its surface is anodized black. The bezel is also available in ‘anodized black’ or ‘mirror polished’. The casing is 100% water-tight and resistant to vibrations.
Dial and display
The analogue dial in contrasting black and white is indirectly illuminated by white LEDs. The innovative LED display is hidden behind the black part of the dial and only visible through the dial while operating, not when switched off!
The LED luminosity is automatically adjusted to achieve optimal readability in dark, sunlight and dawn conditions.
If the speed exceeds the 200 km/h on the analogue scale, it is automatically displayed in the LED display. The maximum speed is recorded as well
The 4 indicator lights (blue, red and 2 x green) are also integrated into the dial. These lights are only visible when operated, too.
You can toggle between the different informations on the LED display by operating the supplied menu push-button or e.g. the headlight flasher push-button on the handle bar.
Default value on the display is the time. If needed, a short actuation of the push-button will display the values of total distance, day trip, on-board voltage etc.
All functions are easy to operate with the push-button, e.g. day trip, reset or the like. Default settings or recorded values are of course stored even with the power supply switched off.
The motoscope tiny is easy to install with the two M3 threaded holes on the back side.
There are various motogadget brackets available for installation. Refer to “Brackets”.
Connection and sensors
The detailed installation and operating instructions (refer to “Downloads”) help with the connection of instrument even for users without any previous experience in handling the vehicle’s electrical system.
The supplied speedometer sensor in stainless steel is very small (M5/23 mm) and therefore easy to hide. The sensor can be easily installed on front or rear wheel with the connector cable (1.5 m long). This allows for the easy conversion of an originally mechanical speedometer drive on a motorbike.
The motoscope tiny is compatible with various original speedometer sensors (dry reed contact and proximity sensors) of the motorbike manufacturers. In this case, the terminals have to be connected only and the mechanical sensor installation will be completely obsolete.
An intelligent ‘Teach Function’ allows for the easy calibration of the speedometer – even on vehicles with transmission sensors, e.g. Harley Davidson (TM).
