    I like it, but I need to test out my bike with the GPS first. Just setting to 17" rear might do it for me.

    At the moment it doesn't look like we're going to do a new run. I still have 1 ring left though. So if anyone is interested, pls email me.

    Sorry guys, I'm though all of them now.

    I am willing to run a new batch, but I have to be quite sure if someone wants one or not. I wouldn't want to end up with 15 rings in the shed that nobody wants....

    My speedo is inaccurate, can I change it?



    * So to all of us who want to adjust their wheel size in the speedo, watch this.
    1. Remove the seat, and the right hand side panel.
    2. Remove the ignition key if you haven't already done so (really important!!).
    3. Unbolt the negative lead of the battery.
    4. On the dash, hold down the "set" button and connect the battery.
    5. Keep holding down the "set" key while the dash starts to count down from 15 to 1(the bike will not explode).
    6. Next the dash is going to toggle between three rear wheel size choices. You can let go of the "set" button.
    7. When the dash shows you the preferred rear wheel size press "mode".
    8. Done. Now the new wheel circumference is set.
    * (note, this is a mutliple choice question, three options. You don't get to set the wheel size on a per mm base)

    The above procedure works perfectly for the Xch, but the other two are allready on a lower wheelsize.
    * If by any accident you've chosen the wrong wheel size, insert the ignition key once into the ignition lock, and remove it again. Remove the battery terminal and start all over again.
    * Once satisfied, Connect the battery solidly, reinstall the side panel and the seat
