I've got a 2000 M900ie and I went from the stock front wheel to a 5-spoke from a 996.  The gear in each wheel hub looks similar, so I figured I could use the M900 speedo pickup/drive.  But I don't get any action from the speedo gauge or tach with the wheel installed and spinning.  Is there a different front axle pickup/drive in the SBKs?

Thanks.

There's a steel ring/plate that has tabs to engage the wheel and the gear, 'connects' the wheel to the speedo.

Sounds like the new wheel doesn't have one.

Ok thanks for the reminder on that steel ring.  I thought that was part of the assembly but I then spoke with someone else who indicated it wasn't, so the wheels went back on the axle without it and obviously aren't equipped to drive the speedo.  Now the question is where's the steel ring.  Anybody have an extra?    Grin

Thanks.

The ring from your old wheel should work just fine.

True, it should...assuming I can find it!   Grin

If you remember the last place you turned your back on the wheel, that'll be where it fell out.
