2016 DL1000A SpeedoDRD

I need the help of people who know things. I'm trying to install the SpeedoDRD and it says to plug it into the speed sensor. But I have no Idea where it is.

The speed sensors are located in close proximity to the slotted ABS tone rings on the front and rear wheel hubs. These are on the right side of the bike. Follow the sensor connect harness to the front of the tank, its connector is in that area. The rear harness connector is either behind the right side cover or the seat. A single bolt holds the sensor body to the bottom of the right fork, and the rear brake caliper bracket.
Future note: If you pull the rims off the bike for any reason, remove the sensor bodies FIRST, or you'll wish you had.

Because the ABS wheel speed sensor part that passes through either the lower front fork bracket and the part that passes through the rear brake caliper bracket can be damaged by trying to remove the rim 1st. Infact, in the factory shop manual for my '14 DL1K the very 1st step under front or rear wheel removal is to remove the ABS wheel speed sensor.
I recently replaced tires for the 1st time on my Vstrom, hadnt looked at the book, and after removing the rear axle, the caliper bracket stopped the whole proceedings via that wheel speed sensor end. Not spending 10 seconds to remove a small bolt could have cost me time and money.

Is the 2016 different from the 2014 because the 2014 has a plug and play system so no connections required.


I'm 90% sure you are looking for a pink wire, there is a boot covering a bunch of connectors at the front of the tank on the right side.

I had to pick up the speed sensor there when I fitted my cruise control.

I had to pick up a brown wire and a pink wire & I'm 90% sure the pink was the speedo.


I will check for you.

OK

The speedometer signal wire is pink with a white stripe, it is in the corner of the plug next to a green/yellow & below a blue wire.


Hope this helps.

For 2014+ DL1000, you need the 12 O'clock Labs speedo pigtail. Part No. SDRD-G-ADP. You probably have to call them to order one, as they make them to order. They told me two weeks ago that they don't keep it on the website because they are having trouble sourcing the connectors to build it. I just received mine this week. It will go between your gauge cluster and the wiring harness and allow you to plug the SpeedoDRD in. I'll install mine when it gets above freezing.

Check out this thread for details: https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a...n-success.html

The 2014-2016 uses a signal from both the front and rear wheel ABS sensors into the ECU, which then sends its own speed signal up to the dash cluster.

You can't tap into either ABS sensors like with the Gen 1 wheel sensor. If you correct one of them there will be a speed mismatch between front and rear and you'll have the traction control freaking out continuously. You'll have to tap (interrupt) the ECU's line to the cluster. There are several ways to accomplish this and they are described pretty well on other threads (like the one previously mentioned).
