Bicycle Odometer Installed

i might go get one this week is there a limit on how high the speedometer goes up to ? thanks

Actually in my first photo is the max speed i went the day before 64.5 mph. The manual says it will go up to 99 mph.

Great post, Went and got one today,I actually got the F12 model,(9.99)I didnt see any way a burned calorie counter on the F20(19.99) would be too acurate. I could burn 2000 calories just sitting and turning the throttle LOL. Will try to put it on this weekend. Hope you dont mind if I copy your install, Looks to be about the cleanest way to install without too much problems.

How close did you get the sensor to the magnet? They say 2mm.

Thank for posting, was looking at the Trail Tech but havent heard too much good about them.

By all means copy away! I didnt measure it but spun the wheel to make sure it would register before attaching the dbl sided tape. Probably just got lucky!

Ha Ha, Stud. That turned out great!!!

Thanks K.! You and I should be able to nail down our MPG for the VCGP!

I really miss having an odometer since moving up to the YZ450 from my WR250. Not wanting to spend the big bucks on a Trailtech I thought I'd give this a shot. Bell 20 function bike computer, $9.95 at Target. Lot of cool features including a temp gauge. The toughest part was soldering in a length of double wire since the supplied wire was too short. The small main wire actually has two separate insulated wires inside.

It was setup to attach the magnet to spokes. I cut the magnet from their bolt setup and glued it to the rotor hole with JB. Near perfect fit.

Used leftover double sided tape from my hour meter install to attach the pickup. A little exposed to rocks and bushes but we'll see.

I used a lot of electrical tape to marry the wire to the brake line.

I put one similar model on my daughters TTR just so she could gauge how far she has ridden and to get an idea of MPG. sucks running out of gas, two years and it's still holding up.

For some strange reason, i can't see any pics on Davcon's original post. I see the link for them on Maximus's post but the links don't do anything. Can you post again or provide another link?

Thank you,

Bob

They're still there (for me anyway). Probably your settings. You could go directly to photobucket. Try this link.

The odometer held up well to the 40 ft double you took on Sat.
