I guess that the wire goes into the speedo circuit somewhere?
does it have any block connections or what?

The long wire will have a reed switch on the end, usual thing is to put a magnetic brake disc bolt on, then set it up to read from that. The two little square holes are for putting zipties through to secure it to a fork leg.

I'm still puzzled as to why you want to put a bicycle computer on your motorbike.

A lot of people do that on my ZXR.
We have no fancy digital speedo, and for racing, people prefer it I suppose?

Also allows you to record avg speed, and more trip computers etc.

i was considering getting one.

Also, you can probably configure it to be more accurate than the standard speedo connected to the wheel?

Fisher do you want this for your bike?
I don't think I can afford one at the moment. TOOO many other things to worry about...
I think my chain is stuffed, and I need some more servicing done ASAP...
