DEPO racing wideband AFR kit

After reading all 19 pages of Ventura's air intake mods, and checked prices of an innovate kit at about 150, came across the DEPOracing AFR kit. Has anyone used one of these
http://www.deporacing.com/product_1....ey=242&type=A#
Incredibly cheap, (39 inc postage) on fleebay,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DEPO-racin...item1c2a497992 but do they work?
I can justify 40 quid (to myself), but not 150, just need to know if anyone can recommend (or not) them.
cheers, Dayve

Dayve,
It looks a bargain and I'm thinking the same as you, 150 is a lot and isn't justified.
Love the blue colour, it matches my bike !!!
I've seen similar on ebay for under 20 but that's for the gauge, the sensor and weld on adaptor have to be bought separately elsewhere.
Watching this post with interest.

Having checked out the seller's feedback there are several neutrals about slow postage. They're not based in the UK as stated in the description, they're in Latvia...naughty !!!

Ah well, looked too good to be true.
They do make a wideband one, 52772LED, for 116, but the cheap one is D-BL5277, as grzegorz says, narrowband & runs off the (cars) ECU

that looks pretty good but it does not give alot of info on it.You wont go wrong spending the extra on the inovat if you want your bike tuned right it will pay for its self.If you buy the cheapo gauge and its not right you will be chaseing your tail tuneing your bike.

As Grzegorz says, its a narrow band gauge and isn't reading from the exhaust, but from the ECU.

As for the seller, I recently bought an Innovate MTX-L from them and it arrived far quicker than a lot of UK sellers deliver.
They also have UK based contact details in case of enquiries so wouldn't be put off too much by their location.
I'd purchase from them again for sure.

As for how much you'd pay for one of the most useful tuning aids you're likely purchase, you pays your money and you take your choice!
