Anybody know of dealers for a set of the Bridgestone 090s. Local kawi dealer can't find them, they use Tucker Rocky and Parts Unlimited. Tried some national web sites, and no listings for them. Possible racing supply websites?

Did you google it? I found a few places that sold them when I did that.

all u need to do is set the wheel size, it's super easy and a lot of useful info.

here i mounted it on the handlebar via double stick tape
I did this install and it is very easy and useful, I really like having an accurate speed reading and a clock. I installed the Sigma BC1906 (found one for $25) because it has an indiglo type of back light for night riding.

Also, for anybody else that does the install the stock wheel measurement to input into the computer is 1803(mm).

that's cool, i didn't think of a back lit model when i got mine. i did notice that the stock odometer is off by about 3% though. i pretty much just wanted it for actual MPH and a clock.

Did you guys test this thing vs a gps to see if it is in fact accurate?

Ouch.... according to Bridgestone, our 090 race tires have been bought up by street guys, killing the supply. I had to run 016 street tires on a few of my bikes in the last race, because no 090s were available. I hope the supply improves.
