Thanks, I know about that one. I was hoping to correct the rather inaccurate speedometer/odometer.
I know that. On my 950 Adv, it would read 10.4 mi in 10 miles, and the speedo would read 60 for 55 mph.
I needed something better for dual sport events and laying out rides. So, I added a TrailTech digital speedo. Had to put the sensor on the RH side of the front wheel so the magnet wouldn't effect the other speedo. Very simple to drill and tap a m8 hole in the brake backing plate and glue on a magnet. Was accurate down to 50 ft.
Good idea, I've used a Vapor and Vector on two other bikes.
This needs a bump and subscription.....I did the recalibration on my 690e when I put on the SM wheelset.....it worked as described.....great info to have for the bikes....and it can be tough to find the correct answers....
If anyone here is still trying to figure out or confirm the process for a 990 (mine is a 2012R), do a search for my name "along at" and look for my speedo and / or my Alpina wheel conversion threads - I've successfully calibrated my speedometer / odometer after the 19/17 install (and later on I fine-tuned the calibration on the speedo / odo) - it is the process with the wire removal / cutting behind the gauge cluster; works like a charm...
Bump for a great thread. Funny story, I thought my speedo went hen-shit. It was mostly blank and only showed the temp, wheel dia and zero mph.
Well, I have the trip master switch. It has the mode button and two others. Apparently, the mode button was pressed aginst my tank bag when I turned the bike on and put it into the 'set the wheel dia' mode which I didin't recognise. I eventually tried pushing both Mode and Set buttons to bring it back.
