Grounded wire shield. In other words, use a braided steel sheath around the wires and connect it (electrically) to the frame of the bike.

Or aluminum foil held with black tape, with a ground wire.

Put the coil as far from the speedo as you can.

Okay folks, gonna need some feedback on this so I'd know if I should take a chance on this product. Has anyone ever used a Bell Wireless Cyclocomputer on a motorized bike, or similar speedo comp....and if it actually WORKED ?

I am using one right now.

At first, every time I fired my bike up it would reset the speedo. But once the motor was up and running it worked fine.

Then, the battery went dead very shortly after purchase. I installed new battery's and the resetting after start up went away?

I used a wireless one years ago, was not a Bell do not remember the brand? But that one I had no trouble with it whatsoever.

I have a speedo computer and having same problem. Anytime I fire up engine. It stops reading speed (which is the main reason of purchase). So I'm wondering a solution to this problem??

I don't like any electronic speedometers, I can't read them with a glance.
I just stick with old school Analogs, like $17 and they always work.



The needle tends to bounce at super slow speeds, but runs pointing up on a well made direct drive.
It only goes to 50mph but that is just enough for that 45mph 4-stroke shifter, and there is something satisfying seeing a speedometer pegged to the right ;-}

That must be a cool feeling. Don't think I've ever built any thing that made it past low 40s. 45, tops. Building mostly junkers and wally world -ers. Probably a good thing, LoL.

A good bike is top of the list if you want to go really fast.



That Cadillac came with a NuVinci disc brake rear hub.
With a shift kit and expansion chamber exhaust from Sick Bike Parts, that bike was fast.

I tried wired and wireless, both died quickly, currently I’m using a meilan gps speedometer, no interference and east to install. The one I bought is currently $34 on amazon but when I bought it it was $24.
also it’s usb rechargeable and easy to use.
