Did you try a new battery in the Trail Tech?

Or the battery connection? Mine started turning on and off and not retaining time/trip etc, and it turned out to be the battery terminals. I just bent them a bit more to make a more positive contact and polished the surface of the battery and it's been fine since :bonk:.

I installed a analog speedometer from a 2000 Yamaha XT 350 on my 03 WR 450. It uses the stock odometer drive and cable and only cost $40.00 more than a Trail Tech. I had three of those:banghead: and they were all junk. My stock Yamaha speedo has been on my bike since February of 2003 and has over 8000 miles on it and it has never given my a problem.:bonk: Plus you can wire in the light so even at night you can tell your speed without taking your hand off of the bars and hunt for the button to light up the speedo. You will have to make your own mount.:bonk:

Clean the contacts on the Trail Tech and on the mounting receiver.

Battery= CR 2032 (disc style)
