    Yay another rebuild after 3 or 4 hours..

    you've confused the portion of jetting that deals with only the main jet vs the entire process. doing a plug chop from wide open throttle gives you what you can ''read' from the base of the plugs insulator. you'll have to cut the threads off to see the main jets mark on the insulator, but it's there. the other sections of the plug show different things besides that main jet witness mark. jetting only for the main jet won't do much for the idle circuit, the needle, or the air screw. folks that ride woods (me) a lot will test all the circuits and jet for the best of each, not just wide open. here's my summer jetting results. it's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with its ability to lug through slow single track all day, or rip the connecting roads to the next radio, without any issues

    Trail Tech Voyager Pro

    that's a really good, real world usage review of the voyager pro, thank you for taking the time to type it. it's so refreshing to read a real world review, instead of the millions of paid shills that do nothing but read the marketing material point for point! again, thanks

    Being properly prepared for Gifford/gnar

    we usually tell guys before we get started about dangerous obstacles, tell them the difficulty, and let them decide. nanny-state monitoring OR mr cocky mc cockiness, doesn't fly with our groups of riders. generally mr mccockiness gets shut down the first time he's boasting/bragging/trash talking, or we'll just leave him with dust. of course we wouldn't take a child into dangerous stuff, but a grown up has to make decision for themselves, and deal with the consequences. all of that said, it's a LOT of fun to take someone into terrain that they are not used to. watching them fail and succeed is pretty awesome, And the high they get by pushing their envelope a little is very cool to see.

    Trail Tech Voyager Pro

    of course, yes, it will record and display tracks. the pro is hugely better than the regular Voyager, it just needs routing before it can be used for street/dual sporting

    Trail Tech Voyager Pro

    ok, to answer the ops question: no the Voyager is not worth $240 unless you really want a bunch of useless info (rpm?) on a dirt bike, and very poor gps capabilities. it's just s gray screen with gray lines. fine for recording tracks but terrible for anything more than that. there are no routing capabilities it turn by your navigation for dual sport/street rides. no the Voyager pro is not worth $600 unless you convince your buddies to also buy and use them with the buddy tracking. it has a color screen but it's still far behind until route plotting is included in a firmware update. this is a huge improvement from the original Voyager but so far behind the phone apps. comparison, what phones do that trail techs cannot: everything browser related everything route related everything turn by turn related everything sharing related (tracks waypoints maps kmzs videos pictures mp3s) to other devices everything video related everything picture related pay for your gas/slushy/etc via NFC modify fuel maps on modern bikes via Bluetooth call 911 basically think of the trail tech as a really nice screen that is running a beta release of navigation software that isn't ready for any dual sport or street use yet. you can always create a route on your phone with locus/whatever and transfer it to the trail tech as a track, but if you're filling with pulling out the phone, swapping sdcards/WiFi transfers, might as well put the phone on the bars and just get the full navigation experience. Android devices are $55 and blow away the usability of Garmin, Tom Tom and Voyager devices. yes, $55 phones are rugged, waterproof, and all the navigation features work without cellular service. and the track limitations are almost limitless... attached is an example showing about 85,000 miles of gpx tracks without any slowdown or issues. eclipse paths are great for testing a units capacities and processing power:

    Which GPS?

    locus map free maps, no storage limits for tracks/waypoints/maps/kmz overlays/etc and never need to plug it into a computer to make room or create routes ever again.

    Voyager - GPS Function???

    the Voyager is best at displaying rpm and speed. i know i know, that's pretty useless on a dirt bike/dual sport, but it's what it does. yes, you can record a gray track on a gray screen, or TRY to read gray roads on the gray screen, but it's not something i would consider as good at gps duties. if you want full gps capabilities... kyocera duraforce xd $55 locus map $7 Amazon silicon mount $11 it does more
  8. kyocera duraforce xd $55 locus map $7 Amazon silicon mount $11 it does more than the $600+ Garmins, easier.

    Trail Tech Voyager Pro

    1 should have used an Android, the rugged kind. that's why it's the suggested phone to use in all the threads. 3 you mean touching the "download" button is harder than finding the right USB cord, plugging into a computer, navigating map install, map manager, and Basecamp, to try and make sure your routes match up between the computer and the gps ?
  10. that's complicated. here in the South we just send off a few forms to South Dakota and get a title/tag in a few days. then transfer it to our state. cost is about 45$ depending on the assessed value.

    Latest GPS on a budget options?

    i started out using map overlays on Garmin/tomtom devices years ago, and very quickly realized they were crap for motorcycling. i changed to the first Android htc g1 and was amazed. tracks, maps and routes were EASY to follow and make. oruxmaps was in it's infancy, and worked great for off-road adventures, but i wanted more track handling features and found locus. now i have teens of thousands of miles of tracks and waypoints from all over the country. the best part is i don't have to make room or manage my taco from a desktop computer, or plug it in to create tracks. all of it is in my pocket, with plenty of time for maps, videos, etc and whatever else i want to store. locus osmand and oruxmaps surpassed the stand alone units about four years ago, and keep improving.
