Backup ICO pickup from stock speedo pickup?

Hi All-

Any reason why this wouldn't work?

I remember reading somewhere about someone selling an adapter that clipped into the stock KTM/Husaberg speedo wiring harness for an ICO. I'd prefer to go this route if possible to avoid splicing the tiny stock wires. Anyone know where I could get one?

Cheers!

Matthew

Not sure to be honest. Have you given it a bash?

The problem with this is you then don't have completely redundant systems. If you loose the one pick-up, you loose all the odometers.

I'm not thinking of removing the ICO pickup and just using the stock, more having the easy capability of running the ICO off of the existing stock pickup as an already installed backup if the primary ICO pickup fails. I've never had a stock pickup fail despite the abuse I have put my bikes through, and as far as I know they both work the same.

However, I'm a complete Rally noob and figured I would consult the ADV Rally Brain Trust before I try and re-invent the wheel.

Cheers,
Matthew

I too would recommend drilling and tapping a new hole in you caliper bracket. Works easier on oversize disc adapters (more space between the fork foot and the caliper).
Nonetheless, this shop in Austria does sell an adapter for your needs (page 4): http://www.hasi-moto.at/images/downl...spekt_2014.pdf

Glad I found this wonder what the cost would be to get it in the states.

ICO has become a generic name for a tripmeter. There is the actual brand from ICO Racing, and there is the RNS Tripmaster XL made by Rallye Navigation Solutions. The latter being much better made in my opinion not to mention they're made by one of the inmates here
