RPM Data Logger

If there is any of you that are or have run the "RPM Data Logger" I would like to hear your opinions about it. I'm considering purchasing one for my dragbike.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!

many of us data log, generally O2 and rpm as a minimum.

but as a brand, i've never heard of an "RPM Data Logger".

I don't want to get booted off the forum for advertising for someone but they(RPM Performance Products) are a real brand name. Their prices are good and it appears you get a lot of bang for your buck. Several folks on another forum spoke highly of their product as well as their customer service. Unless I find a lot of info to the contrary I will probably be ordering one in the next couple weeks for my dragbike.

i just did a lil googling and it seems they have a pretty high end product.

what set up are you thinking of?
I didn't immediately see an 02, rpm, throttle position, etc set up.

This is the email that I sent them.

{I am building a new bike for TG and would like to be able to log data for:

Fuel/Air Ratio

Engine RPM

Final Drive RPM

Front Wheel RPM

Accelorometer

Oil Pressure

Oil Temp

Fuel Pressure

Battery Voltage.

The bike is a Koenig Low Boy chassis with a Kawasaki ZX-14 drive train. I am using the complete factory ecu, fuel injection, wiring harness etc, etc. I do have an external fuel pump w/regulator and Bazzaz box on it but other than that it would be like workin with a normal ZX-14. I have read about your logger and even talked with Dan @ MPS but I'm still unsure of what all I need and what the cost would be. Any help would be appreciated as I would like to have this bike ready to go when racing weather gets here.

Thanks,

TR Ganey}

And this is the reply that I received.

Hi TR,

The complete system with everything you listed would be $1621.10. This includes the DL10 Data Logger, all sensors, cables, fittings, RPM Pro Software, download kit and USB converter.

Regards,

Randy McMahon
RPM Performance

That to me seems like a lot of capability for the dollar compared to some of the other units on the market. Also this guy evidently gives some really good customer service according to the folks I've read about that are using his product. Those people were not testimonials on his web page. They were on another forum similar to this one. I could get by a lot cheaper by not monitoring so many things but I want the whole picture.LOL

BTW: You mentioned the TPS. In my case it probably won't be important because mine is an "race only" set up and is always WFO. The only time it will see anything except idle and WFO is during the burn out. Their units seem very versital so I'm sure that it can monitor and log TPS as well.

Look into the Innovate product line. I'm very happy with mine.

innovate capabilities are OK, but their connectors suck.

On my primary 1/1.5 mile Busa, I went to an AIMS dash (expensive) for added capabilities, but also because their connectors are 1st class.

On my Rust Bucket Roller busa, i'm using an Innovate LM-2 for the salt bc it's relatively cheap (and disposable).

i got a used LM-2 cheap

The LM-1 box itself was solid, dependable, but the connectors are fragile as hell; i understand you hating on Innovate.

Get an AIMs dash/logger. A "bit" more expensive, does everything but cook you a meateater's breakfast.

Karl, check out e-bay. You can find some good cheap Lm-1 and 2 full kits for a good price. That way you can have a back up for the salt.
