Get one that is "wireless", that is there is no wire from the wheel pick-up unit to the computer.

The wireless one I tried didn't work, the didtance on the WR was too far. I mean the distance from where you mount the sensor on the brake carrier to where you mount the display on the handlebar.
The wired one have too short a wire to make it to the handlebar also.
I bought three different units, under $20.00 each. I tried each on my bicyle, they worked fine. I tried each on my WR, none worked. I took them all back & got my money back.
I have since read that you can just splice in a longer wire & they work fine. I guess they also make a speedo with a long wire for running to the rear wheel of a bicycle.
Still using my stock odo.

I had to extend the cable from the BC as it was a bit short. I routed the cable along the front of the brake hose and across the handelbar to where the BC is mounted next to the clutch perch.
I must say that it works great and calibration is a cinch (checked it against my GPS). 137 Kph (85 mph) so far in the dirt (goat trails).
I also use the active time riding (one of the BC1200's readouts) to plan my servicing (like an engine hour meter).

I have also had bad luck with the wireless types.
I recently got radar'ed by on of thoses road side displays and my speed was dead nuts on.
