how old is yours ? have you had any issues with it since you fitted it im thinking about putting scooter into garage and getting them to either fit it or just resell and buy a nice fitted rev counter

A mate fitted mine but it was quite straight forward. Not got the temp set up yet but it's a superb piece of kit...

I think you'll find the people on this forum have overcome any hassles. At least have a go at fitting it, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I've fitted 3 with my half a brain, so that's only a 1/6th of a brain required for one speedo :)

I think you'll love it!
As people have said, most of the problems have been solved, like needing to fit a resistor type spark plug.
You also have a GP, so none of the frustration us SX headset types have with speedo drive fouling the forks.
I can also recomend the electronic sensor for the speedo drive if you want to get rid of your speedo cable, works very well.

How are people getting over the SX issue?
