    Hi guys,

    For the last however long I've had a BMW sequential shifter plugged into my SLI-Pro working fine. However, for some reason the SLI Pro gave up today (lights work, gears don't) so I'd like to make a plug so I can stick it directly into my CSW.

    Anyone know how to do so, what plug I need etc?

    Many thanks,
    Al

    hey Alex,

    you need a ps/2 cable. if you have any old mouses or they can be easliy bought from ebay or amazon.

    here's a thread that will show you the wiring. :) then all you need is use the same adapter the csw comes with which i assume will be the same as csr elite.

    certain ps/2 cables might not fit.snugly causing it not to work. to fix that i put in a few strands of electrical wire in to the ps/2 female cable and tape it to the adaptor.
