AFAIK, the Wee still has the pickup at the front wheel.I don't think that would be possible as the sensor only picks up the number of revolutions of the countershaft.
Hmmm, well I guess I'll figure this one out and let you guys know what I come up with! My brother is quite the mechanic (an understatement) and I'll recruit him on this one. Thanks for the info so far! I'll start on it today.AFAIK, the wee still has the pickup at the front wheel.
It is the VEE that measures at the countershaft.
I've read (almost) every thread on this site for the last 2 years and I can't recall anyone mentioning a new fix.
Someone will happen along soon who is more wise in the ways of the Wee than me.
Yup. After a good washing in the driveway, decided that I'll just save my pennies and get corrected faces. Rather have an accurate odometer than speedo. I usually don't use the speedo anyways because I didn't have one in my truck for years before I bought the bike, so I got good at judging speed. It would just be nice to know that it's accurate!If you fix the error at the source or with a speedo-healer electronic device, you can make the speedometer accurate, but then your odometer (which is normally quite accurate on the DL650) would be off.
I just installed a set of the corrected gauge faces, but haven't had a chance to ride with them yet. The installation was pretty easy if you read all the instructions that are available on this forum and elsewhere on the net. I think that is currently the best solution.
Thought of that, but didn't want to deal with taking the GPS off every time I get off the bike. I'm too paranoid to trust folks to leave it there... But yes, on longer rides I do use my little Nuvi for just that.You could always just mount a GPS, and have an accurate speed reading. When my GPS is attached I don't even look at the bike speedo.
Yeah, I've seen those around here and they're pretty cool! Would it be a pain to fabricate one on my own, you think?I installed one of Austin's corrected speedo faces on my Wee and it's pretty accurate. A simple, cheap fix. I went by one of those roadside radar speed indicators a while back. It showed my speed at 56 mph...my speedo indicated 57. I can live with that.
