What is this bolt hole for on the rear caliper?

Recommended Posts

I want to move the wheel speed sensor for my Trail Tech Vapor to the back wheel. While looking at the rear caliper for a place to mount it, I found this hole (looks like a m6 threaded hole) and am now curious what it's for. It's lined up perfectly with the brake rotor bolts so it's almost as if maybe out there somewhere is a wheel speed sensor bolt that screws right into that hole. Anyone know if my theory is correct?IMG_20181015_161311894.thumb.jpg.c6d7bdd0ba754f301f34d5a3e3144a31.jpg

Sorry, it's for the caliper guard that Suzuki left off IMG_20180908_164306991_HDR.jpeg

Ah I completely forgot that was a thing, but I do have a trail tech sensor that might fit in that hole if I remove all the plastic around it

Why would you put the speedo on the rear wheel ? it'll be up and down anytime your spinning and mileage will also then be off and different each time depending how much spinning is done . I'd guess strictly on the street and doing no spinning it wouldn't be bad but I don't see the gain in running such a long wire going back there over simply down to the front wheel as is normal .

I'm kind of ashamed to say...I don't do much offroading.....but I do however do lots of wheelies lol, so at times I think it would be nice to know how fast I'm going with the front wheel off the pavement. I've never cared how fast I'm going off-road tho and the mileage is off anyway (trail tech Vapor reset for some reason) not too important to me tho and I don't plan on selling this bike. Also the speedometer wire gets bunched up (I have an unconventional fork guard) so putting it in the back would eliminate that as well

I always enjoyed seeing the speedometer needle shoot up when I'm spinning tires.
