Anyone have experience with an hour meter installation on an 04 YZ450? I wrapped the meter wire 4 times around the spark plug wire like the directions suggest but am not getting any meter readings. It the Yamaha brand hour meter, supposedly the same as the Dr. D. thanks

As the 04 has a coil ontop of the plug wrapping it around the wire wont do any good, as not enough voltage is avail there.

I have the Sendec unit and 3-4 times around the actual plug cap just above the flat bit that seals off the head works fine for me.
