    OK, small update.

    Matt has been a complete pleasure to deal with. He sourced another sensor & checked that it worked on a positive earth system.

    So, Matt (CNW) can supply a replacement cover for the mechanical speedo drive, a sensor mount that replaces one of the rear wheel spacers & a sensor that works with a positive ground system. It uses the 5 disc mounting bolts for the sensor pulse. They are all on the way to Ireland.

    I won't have a review of the system till closer to Xmas as it's a winter project for me. I'll take some pics of the install as I know you guys like pictures!!

    Small update:

    Got the 'bits' from Matt + a few other bits for my clutch.

    As I would expect from CNW everything is beautifully machined & finished.

    The only problem is the sensor holder/spacer & the mechanical speedo drive replacement cover are going to be the shiniest bit's on the bike!! Might need to leave them out in the Irish weather for a few months to try & take the 'zing' out of them!

    Won't be fitting anything for a few months but I'll take plenty of pics during the fitting/fettling process.

    Here's some pics of the parts:

    That would be far too shiny for my old gal also. A bit of damp salt air helps rid things of that nasty bling shine also....Doesn't take long at all providing you've some patience.

    Alternative approach - you now have a few months to bring (or bling) your bike up to spec. :D
