pure awesomeness... the reason it looks "oem" is the level of care and skill used in the design and fabrication. Simply outstanding job.

Updates?

well, yes and no  ::)

I've got another right hand switch from a CBR600 that will let me turn the headlight on and off (+park), so I've had to do a bit of re-wiring. That also means the Left hand switch (with the dimmer) needs to be replaced - and I've got one coming. It also has the choke switch/cable attached, so that's a bonus  ;)

Been on holidays and just got back, so things have slowed a bit. Also about to build a bigger shed to work in, but that means pulling the existing one down first. Which means emptying it. And not having anywhere to work until it's done  :-\

Should be fun (not). I'm putting it off for as long as I can.

more incoming:





I've managed to get another right hand switch block off a CBR600 FY (wahatever that is!)



which means a new LH switch block to handle the low/high beam   ;)



Also managed to (finally) get the paint I was after. It's only available in 2-pak, but I'll deal with that. Gotta wait for a warm day now, and they're becoming few and far between.

Sorry for the lapse  ::)

Got the wiring finalised and wrapped, and got around to tackling the speed sensor fitting. Clearance is good, with some wiggle-room left if I need it, and the magnet passes between the active area on the sender. It turned out to be easier than I thought, with a bit of aluminium angle:


Drilled and tapped a hole for the magnet into one of the rotor bolt tunnels. I can't imagine it causing any issues?

The magnet mount hole should be fine.

Can't realy see from the pic, but does the magnet cross over the middle of the sensor or over the outer "line" that is maked on the sensor? It needs to cross over the line to get the best signal.

Looks tidy  ;)

Yeah, I didn't pick that up earlier, and I thought the right "zone" was between the lines, but re-reading the instructions I discovered, like you suggest, that it's supposed to hit on one of the lines.  As it is, it sort of straddles the inner one, but the air gap is about half their recommended 8mm. It might not be much of a check, but I can spin the wheel and it will register on the gauge.

Thanks hillsy.

It will register a signal anywhere between the lines, but you might find that the speedo will be erratic (at speed).

Try it out and if it's "off" you can easily move the sensor a bit with your set-up  ;)
