computer/speedometer

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a trail tech computer? I have an 08 KTM 450 xcf that is street legal. I was going to buy an hour meter to keep track of oil changes, suspension oil, etc. But I ran across trail tech vapor and vector that are pretty cheap. Just need to buy a mounting kit too.

How hard are they to install and how good are they before I spend the money?

I thought the XCF came with a KTM computer

The Vapor is great. I have one myself, you will love it!

PS

Very easy to install, the only time consuming part is taking the tank and seat off to route the wires cleanly.

I have the new Trail Tech Striker computer. I would highly recommend it. I like it because it has an engine temperature gauge and it's just nice to get a heads up before you boil over instead of after the fact. It was pretty easy to install if you get the dashboard to mount it. I would say that installation takes 3 hrs...

Funny you should ask, I just installed a striker tonight and it took 60 to 90 minutes.

If you can change oil and do basic dirt bike repairs then the install of this unit will be a breeze.

Trail Tech nailed it on this one.

Just installed on my new 250 xc. I put this off because i was too lazy to do the work to install it but it is so easy there were no surprises or quirks, even cutting the radiator crossover was quick and easy.

big display that is easy to read in a normal sitting position.

outside and engine temp + volts is really slick

Computer sits below number plate and is well protected

warning lights for volts and engine temp.

Trail Tech even programmed in my current mileage and hours so it will be accurate.

the '09 xc has no odometer from the factory so this is really nice.

I just installed a vapor on my xr. I like it super easy to install. I like the layout of that striker. Looks a little easer to read plus i like the volt meter.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
