Retro fit wheel speedo sensor to wheel on 1996 TTR
Permalink  
 


Has anyone successfully fitted a speedo sensor to the front wheel on a 1996 white tank. I want to free up the front sprocket area for cleaning afyer my green laning adventures.

If you mean aftermarket speedos, here's a thread on Koso and Trailtech, both of which use a magnet and sensor on the front end, which I have been very happy with:

www.ttr250.activeboard.com/t63528559/after-market-speedos/

The original magnet/sensor would be totally out in terms of speed readings, even if you managed to mount it on the front spindle, although there's a good winter project for someone (without a life!) working out the correct number of rotations of the drive sprocket per rotation of the front wheel, fitting a hall effect sensor on the front fork, spliced into the original OE speedo, and fitting a suitable number of magnets to the front wheel hub/disc to make it think it's getting the same signal, and maybe fine tuning the speed reading with a DRD speedo converter...

A bluey speedo drive and analogue speedo sort of fits with a few tweeks I think, but the forks don't have the correct lugs cast to hold it in place.

You could alternatively fit a sender cover like this, which makes cleaning easier:

Welcome to the forum by the way

I use a trailtech striker on my 95 OE. I'm really happy with it. The only problem is that it has a temp gauge and now I get a bit paranoid about how hot the engine gets.

Thanks for the advice and links, I did a quick search on previous but drew a blank.

Emailed Totally TTRs to see if they have any cover plates as they are currently out of stock. 

 Appreciate the welcome too 😀
