Removing Drive Sprocket Cover

I want to clean up the drive sprocket/clutch actuator rod area on my Vee. I know the clutch slave has to be removed. Im looking at the sensor bolted in place in the cover with a single allen screw. What sensor is it and will removing it cause any problems? Im paranoid and want to understand whats involved before entering into it. Thanks!

That sensor...

...is the pick up for your speedo.

Removing it will hurt nothing. Just put it back where it came from and you are golden!

Hmm thats a great idea! Too bad Im so efficient I already R&Rd it. But cleaning needs to be done every year/3k miles so I'll plan on it for next time. Who knows it might be possible to clean things up with a spray from a can of WD40.

Whoops........

I didn't see the first post as this is a Vee Post. Anyway, I added the ports to inspect the sprocket nut from time to time.....some of the Wee guys have "experienced problems with their nuts"..........enough said. :mrgreen:

You are right...woudln't that help that area to get junk sucked into it? How is the noise as I would think that would also make the sound from that region even louder.
