Speedo wiring sensor

The speedo pickup normally fits at the rear of the car, but Westfield have had little success with the speedo sensor and the DASH2, so they have sent me another one with a bracket that fits at the front of the car. The bad news is that I have already secured my wiring and now I'll have to run this along the car too, but it's not the end of the world.

The sensor came with no instructions and 3 bare wires, so I had no idea what to do with it. I spoke to Mark at the factory and he told me that the wires just needed soldering into the speedo block connector on the dash loom. I could see it had worked because the sensor unit lights up orange when it sees a connection. I just had to adjust it to sit close to the hub bolts and then it was all done.
