    Basically the problem is they're a shit design. You can change absolutely everything, but never get them to work for more than a few weeks (my speedo's never worked, so I had to resort to working out the speed to the nearest 5mph from my engine revs)

    Unfortunately if you want a half decent/working speedo then you need one of them trail tech vapours (or similar) which work off a magnet on the wheel


    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”
