I put the sensor on the fork guard instead of the caliper bracket.  You can cut the cable off and cap it with the rubber cap they provide or get one of these...   http://www.flatlandr...ter Eliminators

How did you calibrate it when it was on the fork guard ? And I'm guessing you put the magnet thingo on aswell

I used the sprocket bolt with the magnet in it.  Umm, rotor bolt I mean.  I just entered the tire size and it worked.  I think there's a calibration procedure if it doesn't pick up the signal right but I didn't need to.

I personally don't like to destroy a perfectly good part so I would and have taken it off & replaced it with a space like the one from Flatlanders. I had good luck calibrating the speedo by measuring the front wheel and using the math used in the manual. I used it on both a 17" and a 21" front wheel and checked it against my GPS and it was within 1 or 2 mph using that method.

I hear ya.  But you're probably never going to use it again.  You could probably sell it for what the spacer costs, but it might take a few months.
