if you have 2 wires going to your injector(any injector, pick one), you have a 50/50 chance of getting it right on the first try

If you can, I would measure the ohmage of an unplugged injector. If it is 7 ohms or less there is a good chance it could be peak and hold, which still needs fixing on the guino.

dunno vss, would have to look at a schematic, or use the one from a $10 bike computer

I checked the injector types, and they aren't peak and hold. However, I don't have a meter to test wires with. Electronics is my weak spot. It took a couple weeks to figure out how to hook up driving lights and a tach.

I have no idea what you're talking about with a bike computer. O_o

I received my MPGuino yesterday, and installed it today. It works great, so mad props to DCB.

As to your questions, Aeromodder, it does not come with a case. It is just a circuit board stuck to an LCD.

I can also say that I don't recommend using a reed switch for the speed sensor. It is a bit finiky, and 2 have gone out. I guess they are not intended to be used at high speeds
