I just put one on my V. Installation was easy, specially because I had the fairings, gas tank and intake box off the bike. Don't have things back together yet but calibration seems straightforward enough.

I got mine because I'm also installing a 43T rear sprocket. Why are you looking at one, just to correct speedo error?

Doesn't the signal come from the front wheel hub for the speedo on the 1K than on the wee?

Nope, signal generator is part of the countershaft sprocket cover on the BIG boys bike.

Now I see the relation between the sprocket change and the speedo correction.
Thanks for the clear explanation, Heavy!

BTW is that your finger on the pic?

Well, I always try to be objective, so I have to say that your finger is much nicer, but next time before take a shot on your finger please use a nailbrush 8)

Thanks for the info. I was considering a gearing change so I could actually use 6th.
