ICO Checkmate Sensor

8 posts in this topic

I have a 2008 wr 450 and I'm setting up my checkmate. Looking for ideas on the magnet / sensor placement. The way the bottom of the fork is stepped down it I'm having hard time finding a good spot to mount the sensor. And has anybody mounted the magnet on the disk using the mounting tab ?

Thanks

I used a rotor bolt magnet from trailtech. $8 and better than gluing your magnet to the wheel.

If your 08 WR has the same lower as my 05 YZ, I just trimmed the outer side of the bracket, drilled 2 holes to mount the bracket to the lower pinch bolts and bent the bracket so it lays against the fork protector. Aligns right up with the rotor magnet. I can take a pic tonight if it would help you.

That would be great if you could send a picture, I'd like to see how you did it. And thanks for the link. I don't like gluing them to my wheel either.

Where's the magnet ?

what magnet did you order from trail tech -part #

I can't remember which part number it was, but I called trail tech. and told them what I was up to and they send me an assortment. Seems like it was about $13 with shipping. Alot easier way to mount and it seems to work just fine. Magnet bolts through one of the holes in the disk.

I saw a pic on another post that was tapped to the caliper

but ICO sells the mount so
