Quote from: mdlp on July 12, 2022, 07:36:25 AMIf I had a motion rig (if that's not a phrase that leads to trouble I don't know what is), I'd be tempted to have it a slightly lowered at the front at rest, with the clutch bite point reverting to level to simulate drive take-up. Which may be ambitious as I don't know what telemetry data is available.

CBR1000RR, quite distinct, RGV, reasonably distinct, 748R not much at all, SV1000 not much either. Do you have an email address, I could send you an STL if you like. Cable driven, hall effect sensor.Next up is the gear shift. All the bikes have that distinct feeling of metal moving and notching into place, I want that. I've been working the various levers with my eyes closed trying to come up with what might replicate that, but no great ideas so far. I know I want a detent to click through, and the other thing is I want the detent tension to be load (engine load) sensitive. I want to be able to preload the lever like I would on a real bike, then back off the gas to let it snick into the next gear, like you would on a bike without a shift lever. Keen to hear any thoughts you might have on that. I think it can be done by the Arduino handling the TPS input, rather than having to receive telemetry via SimHub or whatever.@mdlp Yes I know what you mean, replicate that 'chonk' as you click into first. The bike itself doesn't move (although I understand why that's probably not a bad way to replicate it, it uses existing mechanics you already paid for!), so I was thinking maybe a servo that lets a weight swing and hit a stop. That will require telemetry though, to know which gear you're in.I'm quite keen to build a motion rig at some point, but I want to pick off all this low hanging 'immersion' fruit first.
