Default How To: SpeedoDRD Install

Okay so this is my first "How To" and I picked a pretty easy one, perhaps that's why there wasn't one before.

So I got the SpeedoDRD by 12oclock Labs and installed it on my 96 F3.

First take off what ever fairings are needed to reach the speed sensor, luckily mine runs along the outside of the frame and was easy to get to.

Once you find the speed sensor connectors unplug them

Once its plugged in, turn on the bike. I would suggest making it some what dark as the LED was kinda of hard to see with all he day light. It should blink red/green a bunch when you first turn on the bike.

Their website has a Set up calculator you can use to program the unit. Either enter your sprocket gearing, the difference in speed compared to a GPS, or the difference in distance compared to a GPS. follow the steps and you should be all set.

The new unit was plugged into the connectors inline, so you didn't remove anything, is that correct? Does this override the stock speed sensor? Looks like an easy fix. Any pictures of how you mounted it once connected?

Yes the unit is connected inline, nothing removed. just unplug the conncectors and plug in the unit. The Speed sensor sends a digital signal to the speedo. As far as I understand it this unit enterupts that signal and either advances or delays it the programed percentage. I don't know if this company makes a version for cable driven speedo's. I'm pretty sure some bikes don't have those inline connectors and wold require getting to the actual speed sensor and pluging it in there

Here is how i mounted it
