where does the speedo drive from?
« on: 29 October, 2020, 02:15:14 PM »
I hope i have this in the right section. I want to change the front sprocket to 19 teeth, will this change the speeedo reading or does it read from the wheel?

Reads off the gearbox, the sensor is just above the output sprocket.  ECU calculates speed based on gear ratios/wheel size etc pre programmed in.  It's why you can alter the speedo offset in tuneecu.

Only on the 1050 I believe, Sport switched to using the rear ABS sensor

  That's easy..  Short shift, the torque allows it easily, any shift above 3K, below 5K.
