Here's an idea... (re: bicycle speedometers)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried to rig one of the bicycle speedometers so that it is in essence run off of the stock speedo cable? I was thinking that if I found an old speedometer I could gut it down the gears inside and perhaps attach the sensor & trigger there. Benefit? Stock dependable cable, more accurate low-speed results, better stats than a stock speedometer.

What do you guys think?

I think my time is worth too much to fabricate anything rather tahn just simply buying a Trailtech spedo for 60 bucks. :cry:

If the wheel diameters are not the same, forget it.

I have rigged up an electric bicycle speedo, but the wheel diameter can be changed.

The XR400 forum found a deal on speedometers form ATK. There might be some spare mechanical speedos floating around.
