Does Changing Sprockets Affect a Gear Indicator?

Looking at purchasing an IDEA gear indicator...thought I read somewhere that changing sprockets screws-up the readout. Since it reads off the ECU, is it possible?

Smart enough to know better...but

There is another thread bouncing around about gear indicators and this one is mentioned. I can not think of a better bang for the buck than one of these indicators. I have one and love it. To answer your question: A change of gears (I have done this) has no effect on the function of the IDEA gear indicator.
Have to snicker at your two locations (a fun, good snicker. No any bad thoughts involved). Others will get this: Shall we just call him Fast Eddie #2??

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

Changing your sprockets will not affect the gear indicator. I know because I've done both.
