I got the trailtech vaypor on my 450.
Has a few more functions like engine temp and a rpm bar type display. Also has trip time which might come in handy for endurance racing.
Great product.

I have one. Works very well for what it is. Does everything a good quality bicycle computer does and it is very accurate and picks up your motion almost immediately (1 turn of the wheel). I just wish it would have a permanent on feature for the backlight so I could read it at night without punching a button, but that would probably eat up the battery way too quick.

I also with is had more than one odometer, but it's OK, I am really good at simple math.

If you wanna try before you buy, let me know. It comes on and off in 5 minutes.

Look to ebay for bicycle computers as well. There are knock off's of this computer for cheap:

$15:

well how would i hook up the speed sensor? i guess it comes with some do dads for the wheel? i really want one of these, it really sucks running out of gas coming up the hill at oak hill, thats a long push after 40 minutes of riding out.

if i were to get the vapor, how would i hook up the tach and temp sensors? i assume the tach would maybe be attached to the plug wire maybe with a wire tie or electrical tape? not too sure about the temp sensor as i may have to mod the radiator somehow to make that work, but not interested in that particular function.

Patrick hooked mine up, but the speed sensor pick up is mounted to the brake caliper bracket and theres a tiny magnet mounted to the brake disk.
The engine temp sensor(included) mounts inline on the radiator hose.
You just cut the hose and the sensor clamps in between the two pieces.
It comes with good instructions for each application.

awesome for a toy. no tach, no temp, no oil pressure.
make sure you glue the magnet in good, i've thrown 2 of 'em off so far...

sorry dude, been in costa rica, just got back last night. i'm still on their laid back time.

anyhow, my magnet (for speed) may not thread into the KTM's since mine is off a yamaha. but the rest of the stuff will work if you want to observe engine temp and rpm.

i'll do that this week, when i tried Nancy was out of the office.

I got the Vapor on my track SV and I love it. Real easy to install. Thinking about replacing my street instrument cluster with one as well.
