Did you try setting the light to the Blinking mode? I can notice the blinking better than the solid setting. Also you might could tap into the shift light wire and mount your own L.E.D. Just a thought. Or tap into the wire for the light and make an autoshift out of it, activate your shifter for you.

Mine is mounted between the dash and windscreen poined up. Since my windscreen is painted on both sides it reflects up nicely into the covered area.

Smokin it is the red wire up front where the stick coil harness plugs into the main harness.

I haven't raced mine yet, but I just set my factory one so it blinks instead of just coming on. Maybe I will be able to see it.

Are aftermarket lights programmable, so that you can set a different shift point for each gear?
