I searched and only found one thread worth a crap.

What is the general thought from the ADV'ers?

Mounting, air cooled only bike (DR350SE)

I have one on my DRZ and aside from a faulty wire (that they replaced under warranty) it has been great. So much better than the stock speedo (clock, hours, miles etc. so you know when to change the oil etc.) and for not a lot of $$

I have one on my WR250F. It's the Vapor with the engine temp. I've got it with the water hose sensor, but there is a different sensor for air cooled bikes. Mine has worked great and the install wasn't tough. Only been running it for a couple of months, but no problems.

I had a Vapor on the ol XR600, worked great and easy to install. The optional dashboard is also a nice addition.

If you crash regularly (i do) protect it as well as you can. They won't take much of a hit. Having said that i did liked it. The sensor crapped out in the first few hours. They replaced it at no cost and shipped it in 2-3 days. I bought my brother one for Christmas. Good product.

I run one on my bike-works great so far.
Had a nice protective foam cutout in the box it came in-so I used it for mounting the unit for the aforementioned hit protection.

I put one (TT Endurance) on my DRZ 3 years ago and the only problem I had with it was with the mount bracket 1 year ago. The base broke where it is bolted down. Easy fix with Gorilla Glue... still works fine.
I'd get another seeing how it was only 70 bucks or so.

I have one on a XT350 that works fine. It had a faulty sensor but they replaced it with no problems.

Replaced the stock speedo on my Honda CRF450M when that had vibrated into pieces.

Got a Vapor from Trailtech

Got the alu-holder for it as protection.

Really loved the rev-warning indicator. Getting back a wobble when doing a wheelie on top gear and no more gas is not funny. With the Vapor i would just let it down when the rev-warning started blinking and give it gas to straighten it up.

U could set the warning rpms yourself.

Only downside compared to the stock was that it has no indicators for headlight, and blinkers.

At least headlight indicator is needed for it to be roadlegal in sweden. But overseas i understand u dont have much of a checkup on bikes so that shouldn't be needed.

Wouldn't hesitate to buy another product from that company if i need it.
