12 O'clock Labs SpeedoDRD

Has anyone installed on their bike the 12 O'clock Labs SpeedoDRD calibrator?
I am wondering if I will have to remove the tank and possibly the air filter to get to the respective connector. I understand it is somewhere higher up on the engine's right hand side.
How does it work for you, I hope it doesn't affect in some way the FI setting?

It works fine. The connector is reachable from the left side with no parts removal required. On my Glee, the black speedo connector was near the white connector from the fuel pump.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

It worked well. I was surprised how good I felt seeing the correct speed instead of doing the mental correction to the speed. I haven't decided if I'll splice mine into the wiring of the Vee2--there is no connector to hook it to.

Piece of cake. It calibrated my speedo perfectly. However I assumed that because the speedo was previously reading 8% high so was the odometer, i.e. racking up 8% more miles. That wasn't the case, it was accurate. Once I lowered the speedo to read accurately the odo is off, low by the same percentage and as a result the mpg display.

So the trade off is accurate mileage and MPG?

No. Since the stock instruments read about 8% high on the speedo and about 2% high on the odometer, making the speedo accurate will make the odometer read low as both instruments read the same sensor pulses. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650a-2...012-dl650.html
