Has anyone broken their stock trip meter? I went to reset it tonight and I pulled out the dial. I didn't use any more force than I usually do and I didn't hear anything break, I just pulled it out. I couldn't seem to get it set right again and I didn't find anything in the repair manual to help me out. I know I'd be better off with a TrailTech, I'm just a little strapped for cash.

Any advice would be great. Thanks :thumbsup:

My odometer was the unfortunate victim of the first crash on my bike. Just the cable is snapped where it enteres the hub. I can sell just the counter unit if someone wants it. That is assuming it seperates from the cable, I've never looked.

Looking to get a Trailtech anyway, anyone know if TT sells Trailtech's?

I don't know if TT sells one but thay are a great improvement. the going back to zero on my odm. without an hour of turning that dumb knob was worth the $75. plus it has alot of cool other stuff on it.

I would recommend the trail tech too. It is loaded with handy features (oil/maint. reminders, average speed, ride time etc.) and from what I have seen of mine, they are fairly durable and reliable.

I posted this many years ago, but if you used the knob from a TTR 250 it makes it much quicker to reset. It is about 3 times the diameter so it makes it easier to find & turn.
