Where I come from parking that close gets you a $250 ticket and you have to pay for damages and repainting of the bumper.

The owner of that car was lucky I didn't have it towed away. That would have cost them $500.00 to get the car back...


BTW... it was this ll close to not touching

Thank you.

I'm not having any problems with my Vapor's odometer resetting itself. However, I have my TT Vapor Computer connected to a dedicated, fused power line from the battery on my CRF250X. Trail Tech has excellent customer support. Have you contacted them concerning this problem?

Do you think the Trail Tech Voyager GPS unit worth the salt? I currently do not have a GPS, but looking.
Replace the battery. It either a 2016 or 2032. Can't remember just now. Just like a watch battery.

That's probably the problem. The TT Vapor uses a 3.0V #CR2032 battery.

Usually you just show em a business card, can be anybodys if you dont have your own, if that dont work make sure its ok with your buddy but you should be able to use his companies name but just pay cash instead of putting it on his account

My son had a Yamaha ttr125 that could of used that. Don't know why they had such a hard clutch pull considering it was a kid's or smaller stature person's bike.

I had that issue too, the battery replacement should fix it. If it doesn't, contact Trail Tech and let them know what the issue is. I had one go out on me and that's how it started. They make great stuff and have excellent customer support, but every once in a while one of their computers goes all wonky. I had to get a new one, but they sold it to me VERY cheap. I really like those computers and even with the slight chance of a fail I will still put one back on my bike when I get back to the states.

Amen. Vigilante justice is a thing of the past. Destruction of personal property (regardless of your motives) is against the law and is a crime, not a parking infraction. I would say that Steve got off lucky, not the other way around.

Pulling the trigger

I'm about to pull the trigger on HWDB Guards and Rox 2" Risers. It looks like I'm also gonna need to get a longer brake line. Recommendations?
