Avoid using Zipp Ties( most folks pull them too tight) on ICO cables, use tape or velcro the ties will damage the cable after a few hundred kms.

Circlip and magnet



go into the rotor



This is my new rotor I am getting ready to install for the Mexican 1000 rally. It has a drilled out spot in the cooling cut (at 6 o'clock positon)

I dont know if you have an OEM KTM rotor with this done or what size it is. So you would have to use a drill press and the appropriate sized bit to drill yours out to fit the magnet set up you have. As you can see the hole "captures" the magnet and is held by the C clip.

hope this helps

rare earth magnets?

Is it possible (a thought anyhow) to use rare earth magnets on either side of a hole similar to the disc above? I mean if a magnet can be found that is the correct OD to the hole in the disc and then used another 2, one on either side of the disc to hold it in place, wouldn´t that do it? I have a few of these and they have a lot of strength to hold themselves together. I would figure it would be enough for this use anyhow.

Thoughts?

there are lots of options with sizing;

so you want to use magnetic force to hold the magnet in place? bad idea. use one magnet and epoxy it in place or use one of the magnetic rotor bolts.

Drill the hole almost all the way through.
Lasted over 2 years so far. Would be better epoxied in but I've got a handful of them. I use them for sump bung bolts too.

This method is better than using 2 other magnets to sandwhich the units in place by magnetic force. On a rally where you may live or die by the odometer I like to know my magnet is securely in place.

hence magnetic bolts

Here is another option, same as the stock KTM part, just a bit cheaper;

https://shop.enduroeng.com/cgi-bin/c...&category=90KT $12.99


"Magnet Kit with Snapring fits in Stock KTM/Husaberg Rotor"



You could also use one of these

http://sicassracing.com/store/produc...dometer_sensor $18.99

and one of these, to run two ICO's from one pickup.

http://sicassracing.com/store/index....roducts_id=329 $4.99

or buy the parts seperate from digikey

edit: over here
I just scored some mag bolts from Trailtech in the states. The lady who took my order was nice enough to give it to me with free shipping. I have also used some other Trailtech stuff and all have been quality parts.

So in a week or so I should have all the parts I need for the sensor pickup mounting. I also got a fuse block set up from Beaver Creek so its all coming together. Pretty soon all I will have to do is get on the boat in Venice and sail to Greece for the rally.(Like a Boss)

Brake line stripped and clamped



I got the brake cover off and still have all my fingers. How does it look now?

cool, get some electrical tape and tape the sensor & brake line together, and, even better,
put some spiral cable protector over the result... pics tomorrow
