    What Charlie says (if you're gonna run one sensor) makes perfect sense.

    If you want more than one sensor pickup, that's where the fun starts...

    Excuse the shitty photo, it's all I could find, but for hooking up more than one sensor (assuming you
    want to keep the stock odo for speed on the bike as well as the ICO), you're gonna need one of these
    sheet metal brackets (A), I think Touratech make them, or else the TT importer here asked a metal shop to fabricate them, don't remember for sure....

    It has two slots for sensors - this picture is old, I now have both IMO sensors hooked up in the front of the fork leg,
    and kept the stock thread in the brake caliper (B) for my Vector (substitute for the stock odo)

    I will try and post an updated pic, as because the two fore sensors positions looked a bit exposed, I have now asked my mechanic to fabricate a protective metal plate in front of the two sensors

    On the wheel I use the magnetic bolt that replaces one of the disc rotor bolts - foolproof

    So, on the KTM sounds like the magnet is just a special rotor bolt? Anybody know if that same bolt with fit a Suzuki or Yamaha? I had to go with the epoxy putty that ICO supplies to attach my magnet. Seems to work fine but I would much prefer a magnetic bolt.

    I know for sure that it's a Touratech part, if you check their online catalogue they might have the thread dimensions of the screw...

    it's dirt cheap, something like 4 euros IIRC

    a snap (ignore what the bag says, I think it's from a trailtech vector kit):

    edit; it seems I have the TRailtech screw, the touratech is here

    I may see if the mag bolt is a better option I'm still pulling my hair out trying to figure how to mount this darn sensor. I better have a beer before I go on a freaking rant:becca

    Good selection of magnet mounting solutions from Trailtech:
    http://trailtech.net/magnets.html

    What seems to be the problem? Are you keeping your KTM speedo sensor so that you cannot put the ICO sensor in the existing hole? (Do you need to keep the KTM speedo? The ICO has speedo, odometer and clock functions.) Often, I need to put an ICO on non-KTM bikes used for our rally school. These bikes generally do not have a threaded hole for the sensor cable. Usually, I have about 10 minutes to do several of these and almost no tools. I take the threaded aluminum piece that comes with the ICO and cut, bend, twist and drill it so that it will hold the end of the sensor in the correct position, this depends on the mounting bolts available in that area. Then I use the ICO putty to stick the ICO magnet to the brake disc in the correct location, usually in a hole or slot in the disc so it doesn't hit anything. Then I wrap the cable with spiral wrap to protect it and zip tie it out of the way as much as possible. Then I ask the rider to avoid crashing on that side and off we go. Usually this is a pretty simple job. I hope this helps. If there is some other issue, please let us know. Someone here will certainly have an answer.

    I made a splitter / extension for the KTMs. Takes the signal from the stock pickup, splits it off to the stock odo and to the ICO. Also extends the stock cable so you can mount up high on the roadbook.

    I am just too busy right now, with my projects, to make up more.:cry
    I will be selling it this summer on www.RallyMotoKit.com when I can sit down and assemble some.

    On a KTM dirtbike, there's also a spot where you can drill/ tap the brake caliper carrier and run a second ICO pickup, where it picks up the stock magnet. Yes, that makes the magnet a single point of failure, but in many tens of thousands of abuse, I've never seen one come off.

    I cleaned the carbs. It seems the batt is going. One of my ex crew dogs came thru with some clamps today. As far as 300 or so dollars for an ico at least a better mounting kit I would think? :baldy

    Nice!!
    ** I would watch the point where you stopped cutting the plastic sleeve off your brake line. It will want to pivot at that point more what anywhere else and eventually fail at that point.
    My suggestion, cut all of the sleeve off.

    I like it. What are the size of the drill and tap I need to buy/use? :)

    Can not remember off the top of my head. Ned had a machinist perform this. I suggest you do the same. You can not just tap all the way thru or the pickup will hit the rotor.

    Got a package in the mail from HDB yesterday....

    The pocket on the bottom was machined for a Watchdog computer that is currently on my bike. I know everyone likes the ICO but the Watchdog is made in New England by a local Enduro guy, so I felt compelled to use one. The Watchdog seems to be the favorite of the local hardcore Enduro riders and they take a wicked beating from the nasty New England terrain and survive. The numbers are also larger than the ICO:lol3

    Big thanks to Paul for making these!

    I have the "A" set up on my 690 and it works very well. At first I was afraid that it would get damaged but 100 miles of nasty trail set my mind at ease.

    Seems I'm back to square one as I don't have the time to find a shop to do this. Hell it took me a week trying to find a p camp

    Werd up. I could not find a razor knife so had to chip away at the cover with a Gerber knife. Blood was drawn so we stopped when we cleared the last p clamp zone. I'm jumping on the low rider in the morning and heading to Garmisch for a day ride to clear my head. To bad it's Sunday or I would stop in at Tourtech HQ in Munich and buy that mag bolt.

    :lol3

    On that note, mine has withstood about 1000kms of dirt track / stones / 3 or 4 crashes etc...
    only had to bend it back into place once.

    I'll see if I can take a better picture today
