well unfortunately i wasnt able to pull it off :(
the speedo corrector screwed onto the gearbox just fine.
the speedo cable fitted into the speedo corrector tightly.
the screwbolt(not right name) on the original speedo cable
didnt have enough thread to catch and screw onto corrector
same set up has no problem catching on gearbox.
done all this in about 15cm of space on my back.
seems that screw on bolt over original cable just needs 0.5 to 1.0cm more deeper thread on it.

read below it bolted on.

Thats a shame :cry:
No chance of a home made adapter ? Or could the people who supplied it help maybe ?

ok today at a friends house
re reattempted to fit speedo corrector box
success!
what a difference and extra foot of room and daylight makes :)
so just to let everyone know
it fitted in line with the current speedo no modifications needed!
and can be easily removed and converted back to standard.
but i did manage to make 1 small stuff up :)
i ordered a +20% speedo corrector box
when i indeed needed a -20% speedo corrector box lol
living and learning
just good news at least it fits and works with no modifications
and beware if u need + or - when ordering :)
