    I'm hooking up the ICO to the roadbook tower today.

    I could not find the magnet that the stock ODO is using as a pickup. Is it one of the bolts that holds the rotor on?

    I used a metal grommet to test each bolt to see if there was any magnetic activity- but could not find any difference in them.

    I'd rather not mess with epoxying a magnet onto the wheel.

    Anyone have any advice? or am I missing something.

    Doesnt your stock speedometer/tripmaster have a handlebar switch or ability to put one on??? What im getting at is cant you use the stock speedo for navagation? I used my 03 Speedo that on the trip 2 function where mileage can be adjusted up or down when needed.

    Just add a Bolt on the side where you removed the 2nd dic from. Run your ICO down that fork leg and mount the
    pick up.( that is what I did last year )
    I had the stock unit + (1-ICO) + (1 Trail Tech Endurance) worked OK
    This year I will run the stock unit + (2-ICO) units for my old eyes:muutt

    OK- I can do that.

    That makes it easy. Now to find a nice magnetic bolt.

    Anyone have a link to that?

    Good question. I did not know about the stock odo function. I just went with the setup that Santa sent me from RMS.

    Roadbook
    Bracket
    ICO

    I'm just about done with the setup. I just need to make a decision about how to hardwire in these components.

    There is a dedicated molex pigtail for GPS/Roadbook on the stock wiring harness.

    Anyone have objections to tying into that circuit? Or would a dedicated fuse protected circuit be recommended?

    I don't know about the 640adv, but the KTMs I've seen have all had the magnet in the rotor itself, it's not one of the bolts. It's in the corner of one of the cut out areas and retained by a little circlip.

    thats on the smaller 270mm rotors used on 450s 525's and 625 sxc's where the pickup is in the caliper mount.. I have onel like that.. the larger 300 and 320 mm used on LC4s and adventures have different pickup setups

    My setup inculdes two IMO's. I wanted to have one pick up magnet on each side in order to make sure that if one side gets damaged I do not loose both pick up magnets.

    I have used a man made bracket that bolts behind the rotor bolts (in the inside of the hub) and there I use an M8 Touratech screw magnet. That is on the brake side.
    One the other side, I just drilled and tap the hub and put the pick up in the fork bolts using another man made elbow plate.

    Can take some pics if you want to show the assemblies. :freaky

    Of course as BajaDad said, if you have the second disc removed it is very easy to bolt a magnet there. Very nice and clean.

    For Magnetic Touratech bolts see here,

    Although you can make your own if you are mechanically inclined with better magnets that do not demagnetize so easy over time ...

    Remember to check the clearance with the brake caliper. The bolt clearance is very tight. The Touratech magnetic bolt for example would interfere with the break caliper :deal

    Got out with Nate (El Spiderman) on Thurs and rode the SuperTanker Valdez.

    The Deathstar is fully functional.

    Hooked up the roadbook and ICO and a 2 amp USB plug on the dashboard, all run from a dedicated individually fuse protected circuit. Relay runs off the keyed ignition to power up.

    Only problem is that when I turn the bike off- the ICO resets to 0. Is that normal? I would think that could be disastrous.

    It should not re-set.
    It should not be on the Key power circuit it should be on a 3 amp fuse by it's self

    So wire it to keep it powered on the entire time? Use a dedicated switch to turn it off at the end of the day?

    I turns it self off after two hours of no movment.
    Or you can hole both buttons on the ICO it will spell OFF and it is turned off
