If anyone is looking for a cheap solution for an hour meter try a Briggs and Stratton from a lawn mower or brush cutter outlet. I know the brand isn't the most exciting - it's a lawn mower brand afterall - but I got one for half the price of the Motominder and Yamaha hour meters I've had in the past. Here in Aus, I remember paying about $100 for an hour meter from Motominder and Yamaha. Got my Briggs and Stratton - which looks identical, just a different colour - for $40. It's so far proven reliable, shockproof and water proof. I've got it mounted near the steering head, on the frame of my 08 WR.
