Looking at these bikehps.com/aca…tml

Just bought a honda cbf 125 and i personally think it would be really beneficial to know what gear im in - just wondering if anyone knows if any of the above would work on my bike and how hard they are to install

Can't imagine why you'd need to know?
Surely you can feel whether you are in the right gear or not....

Not really worth the money for a small bike, it should always be obvious what gear you are in. These are more suited to high power bikes especially for track days when you are pushing up and down through the gearbox for corners and sometimes lose track of which you are in.... expensive toy otherwise.... having said that they are easy to fit..

Reason is i got ym cbf the other day and im learning and self teaching myself and the other day the car in front of my braked quickly so i shifted down too quick causing the back wheels to lock

I think it would be handy to know my speed e.g turning out of a junction instead of shifting down to 1st everytime can leave it in second

Tbh you are better getting a feel for it rather than using a gear indicator.
You'll learn better by feel. :thumbsup:
