    What to do with speedo??

    Jim I was wondering what you recomend doing with the speedo on the plate? I currently have the sensor not installed due to the fact that the bolt heads hand down so far... do you make a "block off" or have any other ideas? Thanks

    you can drill the holes with a 7/16 drill bit just to counter sink them a little more make sure you do not go to much. Or do what i do just leave the sensor of with no plate at all that's how i've been running on my ski's for years.

    I would but I cant imagine that the heads hanging down are helping any Jim do you "fill" the spot with anything on the plate or just leave it alone?

    I fill the screw holes with epoxy let it dry and sand it flat. After my speedo started reading over 100 with all the mods I'm like what's the use of keeping it on, So i took it out i figured less drag.

    I took out the stock screws and sanded them down to there they where inset or matched the plate. My speedo is about good till I would say 40mph.
