SpeedoDRD, where to plug in?

My wifes 1700 Nomad's speedo is way off (7 mph at 70). She is driving me crazy about my speeding (NOT). I have ordered a SpeedoDRD for her bike and I need help finding the plug for the speed sensor. I have the maint/elec manuals for my Goldwing but not her Nomad. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Never mind, I figured it out! Had to set the SpeedoDRD to a -10.0

So where was it, and how much equipment did you have to remove to get to it? Mine is a 2013 Nomad 1700.

Just so another dummy, like me, will not have to ask the question...
On the 2013 Nomad 1700, the speed sensor is located behind the rear cylinder and behind the starter motor (round cylinder) on top of the transmission (I think that is what it is). Just look from the left side of the bike behind the rear cylinder and starter and you can't miss it.
