trailtech vapor billet protector....I need help

I installed all the wiring for the computer and was going to mount the computer on the triple clamps for the protector, but it doesn't say what size holes to drill in the triple clamp for the self tapping screws. Anyone know?

I mounted mine to the top of the bar clamp. see attached pictures, they are not very good but they give you the idea.




Your just going to have to commit to a spot that works for you, the important thing is that you make sure you mark center punch your drill spots then drill the right size hole for the tap or tap screw. Call their customer service, research it on the internet or ask someone at Home depot. You can also hold each drill in front of screw so that you can see the drill only eclipsing the screw shank but not the screw threads, that would be the right size drill.

I would be very leary of drilling holes in the stock sand cast top triple clamp and putting in screws. You could seriously weaken that piece.

Figure out how to mount to the barclamps like all the others have done.

Ya what he said too.

I forgot to put that part in. :thumbsup:

thanks everyone. And about the drilling in the clamps...I was going off of what the guy at trail tech told me. He said that's their strongest mounting system.

Ill call them monday and see what they say as far as drill size. They should have a 24 hour email help line atleast. Most people do their riding on the weekends and if their computer shits on them they cant call right away!

I bolted mine to the bar clamps also, make the comp set just deep enough behind the number plate to protect it and make it look nice but not so far down its difficult to reach.

Ya what he said too.

I forgot to put that part in. :thumbsup:

Make that a drill on the triple.

I bought a piece of 2x4 metal strap from Home Depot for .42 cents. I cut it at an angle that suited the Trail Tech and bolted up under the handle bar clamp bolts. No need to drill holes they are already in the metal strap. I painted it flat black and you cant even see it. The best part is that its a little bit flexible too. PM me and Ill send you photos. I haven't shot it yet, but I think its bullet proof....

      Anyone having or had problems with the starter not turning over easily on the 450X???
      I have read about this problem on CRF's ONLY and not seen anyone come up with a fix.
      Problem being is that you think there is a problem with the battery, when infact the battery is OK. When you have a good fully charged battery in the bike and press the e-start, it turns over very slowly.
      I have checked the electrical circuit and it seems OK. I am wondering if it might be the starter itself - any suggestions?????

      I've studied the Jetting sticky's but still have a number of questions:
      I bought my '06 a couple of years ago and had a smog block-off kit installed and the pilot jet was upsized to a 48 and the air box opened up top only. The bike has appeared to run a little lean at times and got hot on a couple of occasions in elevation and on one other occasion. I'm looking at upping the main jet to either a 165 or 170 to help with the possible lean condition. The bike currently has a 142 main jet in it which I believe is the stock size. It looks like the most widely used Needle Jets are the JD Red, but it doesn't look like they are sold separately, is this correct?
      I was going to also get a 45 pilot to have options for further tuning. My assumption is that every bike is a little different and that where you ride is going to have a lot to do with jetting. We ride mostly, mojave desert, baja, and southern Utah with elevations from sea level to 9,000 feet but the higher elevations are generally for a short period as we generally continue through the peaks and head back down.
      I'm looking to convert from a stock exhaust to possibly an FMF Q4. I want something a little throatier but not overly loud and will provide a balanced flow of intake/exhaust.
      So can I get the JD Red Needle Jet by itself or can I get by using the stock and move the clip and be just as happy. I'm just looking to enhance overall performance of the engine and maintain reliability.
