trailtech

Hello from Norway.
I have a couple of question according the Trailtech computer.
I saw at the homepage of trailtech, and i read that the computers are modelspecified. But i dont seem to find anything for the Africa Twin. Whitch type did you order? How does it function? Is it also possible to read Kms, and does the speedometer of your bike stops to function when you mound the computer?
Maybe you can post some closeups with the fitment on your bike.
I would be very thankfull.
Thanks... and excuse my bad english.

Aikidimi,
Order the model that comes with a zip-tip secure speed sensor....the length of the speed sensor cable fits nicely with enough allowance for free-play if fitted at the trip meter bracket.(need fabrication of a mount to secure the computer)

There's a option for u to select either in miles or km.

The computer uses the magnetism sensor to sense the magnet which is mounted on the front disc and senses the speed of rotation within the disc and calculates your actual speed by means of speed ratio equation(u need to input your tire size into the computer). It doesn't affect your current speedometer set up at all.

Its a good buy...at that kind of price..it gives u temp/RPM/Odometer/tripmeter/speed/Air temperature/stopwatch/accumulated riding time/ Max speed/rpm/temp recording....
I give it a 5 star on that product..strongly recommended.

I'll get a few snap shot of the fitments...when i strip her naked next time.

Update on my bike... speedo console replacement.

Before (wrecked, old, dirty, speedo meter out of calibration...etc.)

After
tachometer needle broke though...(no issue coz anyway i couldn't get the tacho working)

Didn't manage to get a used RD07 speedo console so i ended up getting a used Honda NSR125 speedo-console and kinda managed to fit in almost perfectly with some mod on the wiring and stuff.
