    Speedo sensor disconnect ?

    Can you disconnect the speedo sensor and not get a alarm of some kind ?
    Dont see any alarm like that in the manual but just curious from people who have eliminated that from the ride plate.

    I removed the whole wire and used the hole as a second bilge pump output. Kept the speedo mount on the ride plate, took off the wheel, shaped a piece of metal to match the rideplate, and used JB weld for the rest. Its Perfect!

    kinda funny when friends come back saying they did 87 mph

    i see your point but weighing no speedo vs the .001 mph you might pick up it seems senseless. would just look weird seeing only 0 MPH up there. I'm not trying to argue becuase plenty of these .1 mph mods will get you a lot in the long run... it is just my preference to keep it... maybe someday i'll change my mind.
