    Vapor speedo sensor mounting

    Finally getting around to mounting my Vapor speedo. Thanks to Steven for the inspiration for the mounting bracket!
    How has everyone mounted their speedo sensor?

    Drill a hole in the rotor? JB weld it right on there?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Pics would definantely be a plus.

    Also that cable is about a mile long. Has anyone chopped into it to shorten it?




    Also just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here. Without this forum my hawk would probably be only 1/3 as cool as it is now. Either that or I would have destroyed it with idiotic moves.

    Cheers!

    Well I got pretty far but still have not mounted the speedo sensor.

    I am thinking I am going to have to splice into that thing to keep from having a mile of cable wrapin around the headlights.







    I'll take it for a test ride tomorrow and see how everything is reading.

      Due to the cable being the length it is i put my sensor on the back wheel.
      I will be putting pictures on this weekend of the front end I fitted (twin lights, chrome forks, VFR wheel) so I will put picturs on of the sensor.

        I used the magnetic bolt to replace one of the rotor bolts...put my sensor on the bottom of the fork leg.
        Also shortened the cable... cut, solder, heat shrink.

          Thanks Bill

          Looks like you do not have the stock front wheel? Am I correct?

          The magentic bolt won't fit in the stock rotor bolt holes

              you could always make a magnetic bolt.

              get a bolt, drill the center out at the head, and epoxy in a magnet..

                  i dont know about where you live, but the northern tool store near me has these little magnets that would be perfect.

                  if you cant find that, a strong penstyle pickup magnet would have one just the right size/shape

                    Also, in case you didn't notice... Trailtech has other magnets/bolts on their site.

                      Thanks Bill

                      I did not notice that.

                      Does anyone know the size for the stock rotor bolts?
