Does anyone have a Panoram bicycle computer installed on their WR? I want to make sure that I use the correct wheel size to input into the computer.

Thanks! :)

btw - Geoff's sensor kit is AWESOME!

Your rolling front wheel circumference is somewhere between 2145 millimeters (Stock 739) and 2160 mm (New 756). 2150 would be accurate enough. If you need to convert to inches, multiply mm’s by .03937 - Incidentally, our bikes are outfitted almost identically - same year, exhaust, air filter, timing and, we are at almost identical altitudes (5,000 – 6,000 ft.) – so I may like to discuss different jetting scenarios sometime.

I put a panoram on my DRZ, I input 2177. Im thinking I was a little off.
Geoffs kit is awesome. Simple to install. The only thing is, I didnt let the epoxy set up long enough. 21 hours, cool temp, I lost the magnet. Got to get a new one.

Thanks for the insight and info! I've dialed in the 756 tire size and with Geoff's kit, I should be ready to ride Saturday!

Yeah!!!

Gary,

Why not just measure the circumference of the actual tire you're using?
1)mark a line on the tire where it contacts the floor.
2)mark the floor in the same location.
3)roll the motorcycle through one revolution with your weight on it until the mark on the tire lines up with the floor again.
4)measure the distance between the two marks on the floor.
This should give you an accurate reading.

I measured the tire (Dunlop 756) and it's darn close to 2160, so I dialed that number into the computer. I mounted the computer where the old odometer went. Just used an L bracket cut to size and then bolted it into the mount.

Geoff - when the sensor is mounted on the caliper, the hex bolts holding the rotor on the wheel hit about a 1/8" of the corner of the sensor. Can I file that corner down a bit so the bolts will clear?

Thanks Geoff, I got it covered. But I wish you were offering the computer, and head assembly attached 2 weeks ago.. hahahaha. I'm putting jb weld on it tomorrow. The Panoram computer is great. nice large display, not too crowded, and easy to look at in a hurry. :)

I just installed Geoff's awesome setup on the WR. The fit was perfect and came with everything I needed for the install, except large shims when mounting on 7/8 renthals. No thing a little foam rubber couldn't solve, it was a really easy install. It even had enough zip ties :)

However I calculate the circumference of the tire to be 2253.8 mm. This is with an 80/100-21 tire. This would make the speedo read slower than 2150mm setting. I may have to measure it to be sure.

Do your guys speedo read a little high or is my calc off? I just want to make it sure it's as accurate as possible.

I haven't tried it yet as that epoxy is drying :D It appears to be well made and the kit is the way to go! I figure that extra rubber mounting will help give it more cushion in jumps and spills.

THx again Geoff!

Mcarp:

I measured mine at 2160.3mm. I'm running a Dunlop 756 on the front. The speedo seems to run pretty close. I've done a drive test along side my car and it's within about 1 mile per hour.

I agree, Geoff's kit is excellent. I did manage to bust it though. Darn bushes in New Mexico just leap out and grab things, like brake lines and computer lines. . .makes a mess of the reed sensor when it get caught in the rotor!!

Thanks, Gary. I run the 756 as well. I ran the bike tonight down the street and everything appeared OK. VERY easy to read it. You must have some serious brush down there, mine appears to be on for good :)

I swear removing the speedo cable makes the steering easier, too :D

Guys, this is a very cool mod!!!

I just installed my Topeak speedo(thanks Geoff), and I love it. I checked my speedo against my handheld GPS and it was exactly the same. I used 2160 as the diameter, I have a Dunlop 756 front tire that is slightly worn. Hope this helps.

Geoff,

Got the new sensor cable. Probably won't get to the install until next week. I'm fussing with jetting again (trying to get the darn EKP needle to work). After that then the cable. Think I'm going to use shrink wrap tubing and mount the fastline brakeline and the sensor cable together. Just have to rebleed the brake line. It should look cleaner.

You still want the remains of the old one back?? I'm also considering making a "quick clip" for connecting the sensor cable to the Panoram. Geoff?? Next generation for the sensor cable??

Geoff,
Can I get this cable instead!?!?! Damn, this is done beautifully!! I'll send the other one back and send money!! :)

What I was thinking about is installing a quick clip connector where the Panoram and your sensor cable connect instead of a solder joint. I am concerned about the cable being able to separate from the Panoram in case of some sort of nasty incounter with brush or a tree. That would keep the computer from being pulled off the bike. And if you want to replace the Panoram computer with something else.

When I mounted the Panoram, I used the old odo mounting. I took and L-bracket, cut it down and put a half twist on it. Then I mounted it on the right mounting hole using the original screw and mounted the Panoram on the end of the modified L-bracket. Now the computer is located about where the old Odometer was, and protected by the light shield.

I did manage to find a picture of the mounting before I messed up the cable, which I can send to you. I have it mounted on a Fastline brakeline, so the computer cable has a shorter run than a normal WR and is zip-tied to the brake cable.

Here's a couple of picts of how I have the Panoram mounted. . .before I toasted the cable.

I believe this is the same one sent to me (or at least it looks the same). Installation was painless, and it is real clean looking. I mounted in on the right side of handlebar, yet tucked down horizontal to the bar pad. I fall or tree shouldn't touch it. The pic above shows a tucked install behind the plate- very trick!

As I mentioned earlier, the only extra thing I needed for the installation was a rubber shim for 7/8 bars. Appears pro-taper type bars won't need the shim.

Geoff, Thanks again. The panoram is a really nice unit. So far 110 miles with it in MX and trail work, works like a charm! I even forgot is was on when I powerwashed it, no leaks or water entry found!

Way too cool!
