Any idea's on mounting the speed sensor?

I bought this six piston caliper two seasons ago. When I bought it, I failed tp realize that I needed a different fork setup. So I ended up replacing the Husa FS forks for a set of dirt forks from a 08 KTM SXf450. Now the brakes bolt up and work VERY well. Only I ended upgoing the whole last season with the instrument cluster working at all... This season, I'd like to hook it back up, but I'm stuck on finding a good placement for it. Any ideas?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Not sure of the specifics of what you have here, but I have in the past used bicycle speedo components and drilled and tapped into fork legs to secure the sensors. The sensors are just a reed switch and are in my experience all interchangeable. I have also wired and/or glued the magnets to the disc in some way. Most of the bicycle magnets are designed to clamp to spokes, and this allows it to clamp to the disc sometimes. It doesn't always have to go disc side either, and if you can live with some wheel spin, maybe the back wheel can be used. I did one on the back on the wife's old XT250, so wheel spin not too big a deal.
