Are you sure you measurments are correct? Is your speedometer set to bike #1 or bike #2? Maybe you have the computer is to the wrong bike in the setup.

Measurement sounds right. I think it sayed in mounting sender that magnet
should pass at top or bottom of sender if it passes in middle will show double
your speed.As for rotor bolt a little heat from propane torch on hub will loosen
up locktight to get bolt out.

I just got done installing mine today and it seems to be working great! I had no issues with the rotor bolt, but a little heat usually helps that stubborn locktight. I will double check the mph next to a GPS to see how close it is. I think its on the money though! Also, I came up with 2114 for the wheel size measurement. I measured 26.5 inches and converted etc.. I seem to be a bit off compared to 2133 though. Could I be that far off?

No Trial Tech, but I did have to swap the rotor the other day. No heat required, nothing stripped or rounded. Allens are a pain, unless you have the proper size and then you must still use care. Instead of Metric, did you use an American Std Allen? Also good to have a set of Allens on 3/8 rachet mounts. My 2c's...

I believe I used a 6mm allen. As cheap as they are, get yourself a set, or else you will be having a horrible time doing alot of little things!
