Trail Tech Vapor Question

So my buddy and I installed my TTV last week, it is not giving a readout on the engine temp and the rpm readout seems to have issues. I'm wondering if anybody else has installed one on the XX and what tweaks you did to make it work right.

It doesn't read engine temp till the water is 100. It takes it awhile to warm up. If that doesn't work you will have to send it back, my first one had a bad temp sensor . The engine rpm you have to play with the numbers and I will have to look what those are.

I struggled with the rpm readout for A LONG TIME!!!!!!!!! What I finally ended up doing was getting a tach lead from Trail Tech for a Raptor, they have a resistor built in to them to subdue the tach reading to a readable signal. I then tapped into the coil wire right at the ecm. It would be much easier to tap into this very same wire back at the coil, but I was tired of screwing around with it, so I just tapped the wire right by the ecm.
I had ZERO luck trying to wrap the tach lead wire around the plug wire and get anything close to a useable readout.
I don't remember what PPR setting I ended up using, but if you hook it up like described above, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out which reading is accurate.

Xstrker,
Contact the company tech support. I'm sure they will assist you. Could even be some new upgrades or "Tech" Bulletins.
Good Luck.

Has anyone ever figured out if you just have to change the ppr number? I have my signal wire for the tach inside the connector on the coil. The ground is ran to where the engine mount bolts to the frame. My readings are erratic and too high...

If it is anything like the one on my kids bike you need to measure the diamiter* of the tire with the sensor, and imput it in the 'puter. when my sons started getting eratic readings it was because the sensor wire was frayed and grounding out. I spiced it and it worked fine again. Check the wire for breaks or cuts.

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

It's a brand new wire..... And I'm talking about my tachometer, not my speedometer... I first had it run to my injector plug that the power commander piggybacked on and had the ground ran to the negative on my battery. So I thought it was an issue where I ran the lead, so I pulled my ign. Coil wire and ran it in the connector, same thing. So I emailed trail tech and they said the ground has to grounded on its own to the frame. So I pulled my left aluminum top motor mount cleaned the frame behind it and put my tach ground there. It is still inaccurate and erratic....

I had a simple eltronic tack for my snowmobile with a similar problem. the tack wire can not be run next to any other wire. the current from ajacent wires was messing it up. it was a cheap tack though.

Do you have the wire with the resistor? If not call TrailTech & order one (as you need that resistor) & tap to coil. I don't recall off hand which PPR number to use but it's in the install manual for the TRX.
