Quick and clean Trailtech install, DIY picture tutorial


ARin

I am not as advanced as some of the wrenchers here on ThumperTalk, BUT the things i CAN do, i figure i will share, just in case anyone finds them useful.

Trailtech was nice enough to service my broken computer free of charge, just got it back today...and its going on a new bike. This is a rundown of the install..

First remove the protective plastic guard, and Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the caliper. The upper bolt in the pic has been loosened to illustrate.

Also, one of the rotor hex bolts needs to be removed, and replaced with the magnetic bolt included in the kit. (sorry no pics)

Now, take the magnetic sensor and use it as a template to mark the spot on the caliper to drill a 1/8 inch hole.

Center punch your mark, and drill. Use something like a bike stand to rest the caliper on while you drill, because it will not reach the ground with the brake line attached.

Use the provided "self-tapping" screw to attach the magnetic sensor to the caliper.

Re-install your caliper, and tighten the bolts to spec torque.

Run the computer cable along with your brake line, and tighten in into the pinch holders. Add a zip tie to keep the cable away from the rotor.

Re-install your plastic protector and route your cable along with your brake line. Add a few zip ties to keep them from slapping around.

Now here i have used my stock ODO mount, turned upside down...I drilled holes to mount the Trailtech base, and bolted it back in stock location. Must remove your headlight shroud for this part.

Mount the computer in the base, and again, ties added to keep the cables from slapping around.

The headlight shroud is re-mounted. The stock ODO mount can be flexed up and down slightly, to optimize the viewing position of the computer. here i am bending it toward me, for a nice, glare free view.

Now we mark the front tire, and mark the ground. Sit on the bike (for a more accurate reading) and roll one revolution of the front tire, marking the ground again. We then measure the distance between the two points in inches.

15.jpg16.jpg17.jpg

This number is multiplied by 25.4 to attain the distance in mm, and this value is entered into the computer following the directions in the quick start guide.

And that's that!!!!

Thanks for watching!

      Hi all, 
      I have a 2004 honda crf250r and it wont start hot at all. The motor was just rebuilt with a new cylinder and piston. The valves were just adjusted. It will start cold in 1 or 2 kicks with choke but as soon as it gets hot it wont start. If you bump start it the motor will just turn over without starting.  sometimes it will start. It runs great until you shut it off.  im thinking its either a fuel issue or an electrical issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      So I want to fit a Speedo to my stock Honda CRF230F, I know people have fitted the Trail Tech endurance to them but they are a bit pricey so my questions are is there another reliable Speedo or is my best choice to bite the bullet and get the Endurance? My other question is the stock stator for the CRF230F enough to power a Speedo or more specifically a trail tech endurance 2? I fully capable of installing it and splicing the wiring, my question is just can the stock bike support it? Also the Bike does not have a headlight.

      Hey guys, I'm new to the dual sport scene, and I'm working on my 99' DR350 to customize it more to my liking. I installed a Trail Tech X2 headlight and I realized that while in the high beam setting, only the larger bottom lamp comes on. Is this normal? It's plenty bright, but I would prefer both lights come on while in high beam. I would greatly appreciate some guidance on sorting this issue out.  Also, my bike has two yellow wires leading to the high beam, I'm assuming one is related to the high beam indicator?

      Hello All,
      New Here, But Hoping For Some Good Info. Ive Recently Started A Top To Bottom Resto On An 03 Honda 400EX And Ive Pulled A List Of Parts Together That I Need To Replace...My Question Is, Does Anyone Know Of Any Reputable Websites/People That Sell In Good Shape Parts Outside Of Your Mainstream Websites? i.e. Partzilla, Rocky Mountain ATV, etc.. As Of Right Now The One Main Part Im Looking For Is A Complete Tip To Tail Wiring Harness For The Machine And Am Only Able To Find It In Most Cases In Sections Like On Ebay. I Understand There Is A Risk With Buying Electrical Harnesses Used, But The Price Of A New One Genuine OEM Is Just Far To High For My Taste...Any Responses Will Be Extremely Appreciated!! Thanks In Advance
