Do you need circumference of the wheel or the tire for that speedo?
I would think you would want the Tire.

If so just measure across the tire and get your diameter then multiply times 3.14 for circumference.

This question makes perfect sense after reading your other thread. If you are using the wheel and not the tire that is going to give you a slower speed on your speedo. Hope this is all it is.

Put a small blob of grease or paint on the tire and roll the bike across the garage floor. Measure between the marks on the floor and that is the spec you need for your Trail Tech.

ok,previous owner had circumerence set at 1550 where the actual tyre with top to bottom is 585mm giving a circumference of 1836mm....bigger,not sure how big a difference to the speedo this will be but sure it will be different,just hope ive not been caught by any speed cameras whilst riding with a slow speedo
