I know that Schumacher is the distributor - you might want to get in touch with them. Hope that helps.

The Zero series isn't being produced any more and I believe Schumacher USA is completely out of them. You may have to send it back to Japan to get them repaired. I have done this before and they did the repairs for free. I just had to pay for shipping.

Looks like a re-labeled Zero Extreme for Latin American market. Not unless the new Keyence comes up with something close to or exceeding KO Propo VFS 2000 the Zero Extreme will still be tops in my list.

I can assure you that it's no hoax and the speedo is a true update. Please keep in mind that this speedo was already far more advance than others.

Like Tim said, Schumacher (Adrian....hehe) will post specs and improvments on the speedo this coming week.
