I know this has been talked about before and i've been searching but i can't find out how to make it work. What sensor is best to use and where can i get it. Then how to wire it. Also what magnets are the best and where do i get them?

found this. To me it looks just like a GM crank or speed sensor. Even found a delphi part number.http://catalog.marshelectronics.com/item/solid-state-geartooth-speed-sensors/gs1012-series-geartooth-speed-sensor/gs101205?&bc=100|1212|1223|1232&forward=1. does anyone know if this will work or not? Also found a pack of ceramic magnets at radio shack for $1.99 that I think will work.

Search for neodymium magnets. It wil give a much better signal because they are much stronger.

I put these on my bike, see the strength. Dont know where you can order them in the US
Diameter 8 mm
Thickness 2 mm
Weight 0,76 g
Nickel-plated (Ni-Cu-Ni)
Magnetisation: N45
Strength: approx. 900 g

I did use this sensor (Brand is Cherry) with the part number: GS101202 Digikey number: CH417-ND

Or you can use this sensor (same as the write up) (Brand is Cherry) with the part number: GS100502 Digikey number: CH398-ND

Both sensors are the same only the housing is difference.
There are also other sensors that you can use but i don't have the experiance with them.

I see they say to use an external resistor. Did you have to use one and how did you wire to the sv harness?

While i know that it would be better if the magnets are evenly spaced around the diameter, would the speedo work properly if i had two magnets a space and then two more?

To answer questions that will arise, i need to get my speedo to work with this wheel.

I got the same magnets and holders from that hardware store in Canada too.
I didn't drill and tap the little magnet holders ,I just placed a pc. of tape covering the backside of the button on the rotor, filled the cavity with JB Weld, pressed the magnet and holder in and wiped off the excess epoxy before it hardened. Worked great
