Lap timer on a 2012 fireblade

I seriously wonder which smart guy from Honda USA or Honda Japan came up/approved the idea of using the engine start button to start/stop the lap timer.

While the idea of a lap timer is fantastic, its kinda useless when i cannot reach the start/stop button while holding on to my bike at WOT.

Anyone facing the same problem or issit just my short thumb. =(

Ergo's are fine for me but I'm 6'2". I believe their is a 3rd or 4th wire on that switch that closes to complete the timer circuit. You could possibly remove it and relocate a momentary to the left handlebar if that is your predilection. I am getting ready to strip my bike down to add my Z-fi /tc and can take a look at it possibly for you.

Have you looked into a 1/6-turn throttle tube? Perhaps that could help with the situation.

I was referring to the second part of your comment of other ways to trigger a lap timer, not necessarily the stock one... Thanks anyway

If you're in anyway serious about knowing your lap time, buy a dedicated lap timer, its as simple as that. The manually triggered lap timers on some stock bikes are a joke.
