Re: dumbfounded newbie here in KS
I'll just slip in here with an observation. Wally sells two types of wired speedos. One is the Schwinn brand, usually the 12 function version, and the other is Bell. I've used the Schwinn on several bikes and only one gave me a problem until I moved the CDI to the seatpost, far away from the speedometer head.
The Bell however will not work on any motorized bike. It resets itself as soon as the engine fires and I've tried every fix in the book without success. I stuck it on my wife's pedal bike and that's where it stays. Works fine there.
