polar speed sensor installation problem


Recommended Posts

I'm sure that I'm not the first guy struggling with this one, but can't find useful help on the net...


I recently purchased a Polar CS300. In the installation instructions, they say that the gap between the sensor and the magnet should not be more than 4mm, with the sensor pointing forward with the Polar logo on the outside.


Problem is that for my mtb fork, that gap is approx 3cm after installation.  Now the watch doesn't pick up any data from the sensor...


Anyway around this maybe?

Adjust the sensor and magnet in such a way that the touch. Do this buy turning the sensor inwards towards the spokes. You can also adjust the the magnet outwards towards the sensor.


Spin the wheel slowly, and a tiny gap will be created when the sensor and magnet touch.


Hope this helps.
