Recommended Posts

Well guy's it looks like our friends at Trailtech are working on a new computer... I spotted this in one of their videos lately.

Sorry this is a little off topic but.

Does anyone have experience with loading and using Backcountry Discovery Routes GPS tracks on the Trailtech Voyager?

I have a TrailTech Voyager, that came on my 17 Beta 500 RR-S and it is a nice piece of kit.  

There are several pages to choose from so there is a lot of data/information that one can get that can be quite helpful in many ways.  

One of the very best features is the GPS.  I don't care about having maps, just being able to enter the waypoint-how to get back to the truck, and lay down the trails so we can find out way back when riding new trails/areas is nice.  Having it all integrated into the bike just made/makes it so easy.

I think as long as they are gpx format then you can import them as routes.

Ya in theory it should work with no problem.

Have looked around the net trying to find anyone with experience actually using BDR routes with the Voyager and have yet to find anything.

Sorry to hijack your thread.

Their new computer looks way cool and thank you for posting it.

Yes, it looks just like this. But this is on my 2017 Husky FE501.

Yes, it does.  

I have no map at all, it will just make a trail and one can mark/make waypoints, but for the trails it works perfectly.  I think that one might be able to purchase map chips but I don't need anything like that for the areas I ride in.  Breadcrumb trails are more than enough for me.

Do all the beta's come with this, for example the 2 strokes?

Sorry in advance for this but...

I'm a fan of Trail Tech and have bought some of their non computer products and use their Ride Leader software (which IMO is free and easy to use for editing GPX tracks hint hint) but I just went with a deactivated Samsung Rugby, Oruxmaps (free app) and a Garmin Topo base map for where I live (and IMO the Garmin Base maps are great and if I'm not mistaken Back Country Discovery is a base map) and other than the $20 it cost me to make the case, everything else was free.

Oruxmaps is a FULL feature GPS application.

The Samsung Rugby is not 100% waterproof but is a bomber phone.

I can also use Avenza with GPS coordinated maps at the same time as Oruxmaps .

And I as well do not follow recorded tracks/routes but just start the GPS from where I start to get my first way point , ride and get slightly lost if needed, find my way back to the start point.

Again sorry cus this is not about the new Voyager and IMO it does look like an awesome/bomber new unit but a  suggestion for other options.

I’d like to get a GPS / TAC / ODO / Temp unit for my WR450 and was looking into the Voyager and heard this same comment on a thread I started. 

So I did some digging and it sounds like the new version is a motor bike unicorn. Myth has it that it exists and there are even videos.... yet nobody has owned one. 

Maybe I’ll luck out and they’ll be ready by this spring.

      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?

      Keep your bike cool with Trail Tech's Universal Fan Kit. This fan kit is easy to install and operate.

      Hi,
      So try and stick with me here its a bit of a tricky one (for me) ill try to be brief. my bike is an 07 wr250f. I've been going through the forum to help fault find but i've come to a crossroad.
      Went for a decent ride the other day, pulled up and my battery was dead flat when i went to take off again. got home and charged it back up and started the bike again to check volts and it was sitting at 12V but when i revved it the volts dropped to around 10.5V.
      So after a bit of fault finding I've replaced the reg/rec and battery trying to eliminate the problem and i'm still having the same issue. i checked the charging coil resistance and it was in spec, i checked the AC voltage coming from the white and the yellow wires from the stator and they seem ok (was around 15-20VAC at idle and rose to 50-60VAC when i revved it).
      I have noticed the guy i bought the bike off has re-wired all the lighting to a new harness coming straight off the battery which after doing some research figured the charging supply was being overrun hence the voltage drop when i revved it but even when i disconnected the harness (so no load on the battery) to check supply at idle the volts would slowly creep up to around 13.2V but again when i revved it the volts dropped not as bad but still went down. I even connected an LED to the old AC headlight plug because i heard it doesn't like to be open circuit and on that plug i would get around 12V AC at idle and would drop to 5V when i revved. As far as i know there hasn't been any other mods done eg stator or anything.
      so pretty much i'm thinking to just bite the bullet and purchase the trail tech 100W DC kit (as everything is now running off the battery) but what i'm after before i spend even more money on this thing is if anyone had a similar problem or if there is anything that i could be missing as i'm in oz so i wont be able to get the DC kit here any time soon.
      Thanks for battling through that and any help is appreciated.
      Cheers!

      I have a new Honda CRF 230F. I installed a Trail Tech Vapor with head sensor on it. I have seen temps as high as 450. This was on an 80 degree day in Florida. Would rejetting help? and what would you all recommend?
      thanks

      Not sure if any one has posted about this yet, however, seems like a great deal!
