The amount of space behind the round headlight found on Vespa V 50 models is very limited. To ensure sufficient electronics could also be packed into this particular models version of our very own SIP Speedometer / Rev counter we have also conceived an alternative to the original factory speedometer drive system. The fragile original cable is simply replaced with our all-new Speed Sensor System. This speed sensor is also fully compatible for use with all other Vespa smallframe models for which we have a speedometer available. This item is automatically included with SIP speedometer / rev counter units ordered for use with Vespa V 50 models with round headlights.
This speed sensor is simply placed along the steering column in place of the original speedometer drive and receives its signal from the speedometer drive gear, located in the front axle. The waterproof cable is connected to the sensor. It has to be pulled through the steering column and attached to the speedometer.
The advantages of the new system include a more accurate measurement of your actual speed and a firm goodbye to constantly snapping speedometer drive cables!
Conclusion : An excellent complementary accessory for the, already highly praised, SIP Speedometer / Rev counter unit!
