Okay here's my problem. I have a vetta v100 wireless cyclometer/bike computer that works great until I turn on my HID Lighting system. which I have handle bar mounted. What happens is when the light is on even in LED mode. my computer goes nuts saying I'm doing 55 while doing about 25 down a hill and doing wild ups and downs on the speedometer.
Any idea what causes this?

How far apart is all of the light pieces from the computer and hte computers line of site to the sensor?

HID being an arc of electricity I'm sure produces alot of radio interference around it. High powered LED can have the same effect. Computer would probably still work if you play around with positioning.

It happens a lot. You may be able to fix it by getting them far enough apart. Maybe not, try it.
