For all of you KLR riders go to KLR WORLD and search the Patmans Vapor install. Shows how to handle the speedo pick up issue. I used RTV and ty wraps. Looks good and works. Has been in place for about a year.

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but...

Does anyone else have trouble with their units not picking up the magnet in cool weather? My morning commute is typically around 10deg C (50deg F) and my speed shows 0. By lunchtime or the ride home, speed reads fine. Do I need to stick a second magnet on top of the one mounted to the rotor?

Well worth the $99, replaced the stocker on my 450 KTM EXC with a Vapor last year, has worked flawlessly since install.

No problems here; how far is the sensor from the magnet when it is passing?

vector

I bought a vector for My KLX450r for the 09 season and it worked great all season but when I got the bike out for the spring ride this year the screen was all garbled and would not reset. i put in a new battery but it did not help.
I only did a couple hundred miles offroad this year and missed the gauge but did without it. I don`t think the lcd`s like the cold of winter and my garage is not heated so I guess i should have pulled the gauge off and kept it in the house. The thing is I`ve had the original Panoram on my 99 ktm380 and its survived 10 or 11 winters and still works! I gues I`ll give trial tech a call and see if there is any hope of getting the vector working again or get another as there ain`t much out there like it. I also had there 1st generation lynx on my kids ktm200 but it fell apart and quit working in 1 summer. I replaced the lynx with a vector and hers is still working on the 200. my 02 cents

I have run one on a KLR since last summer, about 2300 miles. So far it works very well although customizing the screens would be a good feature and having two trip meters wouldn’t be a bad idea.
