Cool product, Max.

Grossly inaccurate speedo readings have long bothered me. You might consider expanding this product line into other bikes. I realize that perhaps not too many use the abs ring to measure velocity, but some might.

I know, so did I (remember who came with that idea some two years ago ). However, on the Xmo and Xco you can't set the odo low enough...

hrmmm... last time I ran with my GPS it seemed I was pretty dead on on my X-Co... I don't have stock tires (TKC 80s now), but it is the stock wheels...

I'll try to remember to doublecheck sometime soon - don't normally have my GPS mounted up for my weeks worth of commutes, but I don't think I have this problem to solve on my bike, I wonder if they made another undocumented running change at some point pre or during the 09 build...

Hmm, although the first batch was gone within a few weeks after we invented they worked really well on the XCo, I get the idea there isn't much interest in a new batch.

However, your input is greatly appreciated (I wouldn't want to get stuck with 10 or 20 useless speedo rotors)

I'm in for one on my '08 country, The "electronic" re-cal kits are $100 plus. I'm sure that if you ran a batch you could move them pretty easy. Just keep the the threads "bumped" up to keep em current for all to see or they get out of view pretty quick. keep it front and center.
thanks and ride safe, mike

I like it, but I need to test out my bike with the GPS first. Just setting to 17" rear might do it for me.

At the moment it doesn't look like we're going to do a new run. I still have 1 ring left though. So if anyone is interested, pls email me.

Sorry guys, I'm though all of them now.

I am willing to run a new batch, but I have to be quite sure if someone wants one or not. I wouldn't want to end up with 15 rings in the shed that nobody wants....

So, how do you change to tire size indicator on the Xchallenge?

My speedo is inaccurate, can I change it?



* So to all of us who want to adjust their wheel size in the speedo, watch this.
1. Remove the seat, and the right hand side panel.
2. Remove the ignition key if you haven't already done so (really important!!).
3. Unbolt the negative lead of the battery.
4. On the dash, hold down the "set" button and connect the battery.
5. Keep holding down the "set" key while the dash starts to count down from 15 to 1(the bike will not explode).
6. Next the dash is going to toggle between three rear wheel size choices. You can let go of the "set" button.
7. When the dash shows you the preferred rear wheel size press "mode".
8. Done. Now the new wheel circumference is set.
* (note, this is a mutliple choice question, three options. You don't get to set the wheel size on a per mm base)

The above procedure works perfectly for the Xch, but the other two are allready on a lower wheelsize.
* If by any accident you've chosen the wrong wheel size, insert the ignition key once into the ignition lock, and remove it again. Remove the battery terminal and start all over again.
* Once satisfied, Connect the battery solidly, reinstall the side panel and the seat
