It says it's "Plug & Play", attaching to the wiring harness.

That pretty much limits it to the new Continental GT doesn't it?

My old fashioned G5 uses an old fashioned rotating cable and the last time I lubed it, I didn't notice any electrical hookup on it.   ::) ;) ;D

Nope, plug and play!

It uses a keyed digital sender from your stock  speedo drive that looks like a speedo cable but is actually wires.  8)

But how will I know if my high beam is on?!?  ;)

Seems odd to install a speedo that indicates twice the speed that my bike can manage...

Maybe this is a dumb question with an obvious answer, but what's the 30 mph lubber's line for?

Will you be selling the "Hall effect" senders separately?

Not at this time.  The Royal Enfield speedo drive uses a unique thread not used by anyone else.  We piece the senders together here to fit to this unusual thread.  It's one of the many reasons why our kit will only be available from us.  I spent a few months on this project to source all the OEM connectors and parts to make the Hall Effect sender so that it truly is a plug and play unit.

I suppose I'd consider it to currently be my swan song of all the projects I've been working on.

I have one. I find the odometer very hard to read especially in daylight. At night I've noticed the lite much dimmer than the dial. Anyone else have similar results.

Just the standard UK speed limit for most towns and villages, still the most common, though 20mph limits are now appearing in more residential areas.
