-I've completely finished the whole setup now, and here are pics of what I did with the speed sensor. ​Not happy with the whole mount on the sprocket idea, and the fact that I don't like doing things halfway, I did a bunch of research, as well as using the pics from Yammyha'​s tranny howto, ​I have mounted the speed sensor on the crankcase to read the 6th gear sprocket, which is what the R1/R6 sensor reads. This is definitely not for the average person, as it involves drilling a 3/4 inch hole into the crankcase, but it actually turned out easier than I thought, since the crankase is an aluminum alloy, it drills really easy. And since the area of the crankcase I drilled is basically just a cover (no sitting oil or high pressure), I think this mod was pretty safe to do.+I've completely finished the whole setup now, and here are pics of what I did with the speed sensor.

-The FZR 6th gear sprocket has 30T, while the R1 6th has 29T, so right away, it's pretty close. Throw in the Speedo Healer, do some minor adjustments,​ and we're off. The jb welded plate is there because I was off a little the first time, but I now have exact measurements I can provide on where to drill the hole for a perfect setup. BTW, the speed sensor you see here is off an XV1600 I got off ebay.+The FZR 6th gear sprocket has 30T, while the R1 6th has 29T, so right away, it's pretty close.

 I took the bike out today, and man was it cool having the digital speedo working. This so far, is the coolest mod I've done to the bike. I love it! Just gotta be careful to keep my eyes on the road now till the novelty wears off.  I think it's funny since most later model bikes have digital gauges, this should be no big deal, but I'm really excited to have these mounted! I guess that's why we're here... retro modding instead of buying new bikes! I took the bike out today, and man was it cool having the digital speedo working.
