    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.

    Use of insulation material is also good

    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??

    Just an option but I use apps on cell phone phone.

    There is almost everything ya can think of.


    "Was" is like Google maps. But offers more and communal information and sharing. There are also specific to bicycles or motorcycles.


    Just Googled it and found this;

    Holders for phones are cheap and just offering an option.

    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.

    (Gotta find a really cool, stout, multi-speed beach cruiser.

    with cool wheels

    on a Tuesday....


    it was raining....)

    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.
