I was going to order one.
But then thought what do I do with the plug.
In plug it?
Will I get a CEL? leave a open plug floating around? Then I figured it'd be easier to just put it back.

But that Walsh brake pedal. Now that is looking nice. Not 99 dollars nice tho.
I may know a guy that can make me one.

I also wanted to buy this but didn't because I wasn't sure if I would even notice a difference if you took the speed sensor off. I wish I could run every walsh product on my bike but some of their products are just too pricey. I wanted to get that holder that keeps the spark plug cap on tight but its $100

I've already got the clamps, a new set of Renthal Fatbars with the RC High bend, +2 MotionPro throttle and clutch cables, some Acerbis Handguards, and a set of Renthal dual compound grips. I'm waiting for my Walsh stem, the +2 Streamline Brake line, and a ASV Pro Set Clutch and Brake levers before I can put everything on. Step 2 is a Precision Elite stabilizer. Hahah

I'll definitely post pics. Hahah

If I don't like the stem, I'm probably going to sell it and buy a +2 Walsh. I'm 6'5" and Danica talked me into a +1. Plus Walsh already had a +1 made, they just needed to powdercoat it, so I'd get it a lot quicker. Haha

Why did you get +2 cables and brake lines, with a +1 stem all the oem cables will fit, they are all long enough. Even with a long travel front end setup the oem brake lines will reach.

Because I was originally going to get a +2 stem, plus the clamps add 3/4", and the RC High Bend adds 1". All that adds up.

And the brake line is +2 on the master cylinder side, not the caliper ends.

I think those +2 cables are going to be too long for your +1 stem. With your +1 stem, clamps, and high bend bars the oem cables will still reach.

We'll see... I'm still halfway thinking I'm gonna have to order a +2.

Better to have and not need, then to need and not have.

I've been riding on a stock stem since September. I'm sure I can ride on a +1 until a +2 comes in if the need be.

I thought it measures the speed/rpm's of the transmission?

I'm also sure that it's what lets the ECU have a speed governor if they do have one. I've heard they shut off at 75mph regardless of engine rpm. Also, I have no proof. For all I know, that could be BS. I really don't know fore sure.

I know the raptors do a green wire mod. I think.
It tricks the speed sensor and they get a few more mph.
It just kills the ignition

I am going to call Keaton at 38 Motorsports today and find out if he knows what it does and if it's something he eliminates when they clean up the OEM wiring harness.
