Its not bad for the money compared to something like Acewall but not sure the rpm gauge would be clear enough for a race bike but maybe so

http://www.trailtechproducts.co.uk/store/erol.html

there's lot of kits available for different bikes but mainly the off roaders and ATV's....the difference being the sensors that come with it eg water and air cooled sensors are different.

Thanks Thumbs Up

Drew (and everyone else), I've just bought Corel Video Studio x12 (formally Ulead Video Studio) so had a play last night and made a video slide show with a bit of video at the end of the Vapour and bike running.

You Tube - XR250R Rebuild (best click the link to watch in high quality if your internet connection can cope)

The comments during the video seem about 1 slide too slow for some reason even though they looked fine in preview...will check and maybe reload tonight.

Thumbs Up Cool Nice one. A few more inspirational threads like this + the one with the crashed VFR400 and, like the Scouser, I could be motivated to get stuck in myself Yes

Thanks all, I'm now in the mid production of a NC30 rebuild video but finding it difficult to make it less than youtubes 10mins but I'll have it cracked soon (probably tonight or saturday) smile

re: the XR250R......I fecked up a little the other night as I decided after last weekends test ride to fit the white handguards mainly for their ability to help deflect cold air off the hands as last weekend was bloody cold. Anyway, I cut the end of the renthal grip as the handguards have their own barend, went to insert the bit that sits inside the bars to allow the bar end to be tightened on and realised the inner dimensions of the renthal bars is less than that of the oem bars as they're thicker wall due to being aluminium rather than steel so the bar end wouldn't fit Wall

I've now superglued the closed end of the grip back on now but might have to fork out for a new set and meanwhile have been trying to make the red acerbis ones that came with the bars fit but the switchgear/levers on the bars are being a bit awkward when trying to find a place to locate the clamp that holds the guards on.

Managed to get out on it again. As usual went over Keighley Gate road and was half way down again when i remembered that 5 miles out of Keighley was Flippits off-road place so went there and got proper dirty, fell once (slowly into soft mud) but started to get the hang of this off-roading lark

No pics of Flippits but I did make a small video showing maybe 1/4 of the place...its a huge place with enough to interest motocrossers, trail bikes, 4x4s and quads Thumbs Up

Apparently not. Tried to do that on my CRF after the engine rebuild but couldn't

http://www.trailtech.net/media/instructions/computers/vapor/ vapor_instructions.pdf

More info on the Voltage requirements in this as well which looks like an exact pdf copy of the main user manual you get with it (you also of course get fitting instructions)

To get a good steady reading for the tacho, you'll have to experiment with the number of times you wrap the wire around the plug lead, sometimes 3-4 might be right, other times 6-7

I assume I'll need to calibrate the speedo for the 2 different sets of wheels I have?
Is that just a case of pressing a few buttons & noting the settings? I can compare speeds with my GPS.
