  7. Some advice needed on trailtech vapor instalation

    Switch and others have been great with giving information about the trailtech. But today i actually got the kit and im facing some problems. First is where to place the magnet. The magnetbolt they send is like M10 which is way to small since honda uses like M14. So your left with either...
  8. Trailtech Vapor on my TA with tach issue

    Hi, After an accident I replaced my dashboard clocks with a Trailtech Vapor. Easy work to install and to make the settings. I am happy with it but still the tach at idle (and not only at idle) is jumping 1050 -1250-1230 -1600-1800 either with the red input wrapped around the coil cable and the...
  9. trailtech vapor tacho fix

    Africa Twin
    Ok now the part you all really care about... The tach.... The answer is quite simple... Noise, Yes signals from other plug/ devises (fan blinkers ext.) are interfering with the tach reading because the wires are exposed. I used a two conductor (One black one red wire) Shielded wire to fix this...
  10. Possible problem with TrailTech Vapor rev counter

    Mechanical Advice
    Late last year my father bought me a Vapor unit with fittings for my XR400. My bike has been in storage for the last 6 months so I only actually managed to fit it to the bike last week. So far I like the way the unit performs a great deal. I set up the unit to give a shift light at 6500...
  11. Another Vapor question

    Mechanical Advice
    Yup I'm putting a Vapor on my XT600. I've seen Snapper's excellent pics, but it looks like he has large hoses on his AT with which to attach the coolant temperature sensors. Has anyone here put the sensor into an XT600 which is mostly pissy thin hoses ? I can probably bodge it eventually, but...
  12. Help: Vapor settings. XR400 Temp and revs

    Vapor fitted and looking sexy. I have set the main details but I would like to finish the job. Can anyone tell me the following? Revs: Max torque and max power revs? Which is best used as a gearshift indicator? Redline revs? Temp: I'm running off the header pipe mounting bolt as the...
  13. Help: "Vapor" Set-up!

    My exceedingly fine Dad bought me a Trail Tech Vapor bike computer for Crimbo. Since then it has sat in its box, but not for long. I’m getting ready to ride my XR400 from London back to Tallinn, Estonia, some time in June/July. I have fashioned a functional if not pretty bracket to bolt it to...
  14. Trail Tech Vapor

    Just wondering if anybody else out there has the same problem as me. The ambient temperature sensor is over reading by 5-10 degrees C when it's been used for a while. I spoke to trail tech and they said it's a common fault on this model, because it's a sealed unit, they are having problems...
  15. Trailtech Vapor revcounter wiring

    Mechanical Advice
    Just in the process of fitting a Vapor to my '98 TA, wondering if I can connect the revcounter input to the original Honda output? I like everything to look 'factory' so was thinking it might be a bit neater this way... Also, if you've fitted one in place of the original instruments, what did...
