Has anyone here mounted a Trail Tech Vapor to a 2007 or newer wr450? I am thinking of going that way but not sure if it is worth the hassle and cost. Any advice?

had one on my XR... dont bother. The stock WR unit is way more durable. get a seperate temp gauge and works conn tach/hr meter

I mounted mine here and it displays the RPM when running, the HRs when off. I really like it. Going to get some thermal stickers for temperature.

I helped mount a vapor on a friend of mine's DRZ. If you are riding in alot of wet stuff, and mud, it will fail rather quickly. At least that's the experience we had with his. All it took was mud and rain, and the unit would start reading incorrectly and bounce around numbers and such irradically.
My stock unit on my 07 WRF has never failed me yet. If you are planning on just riding in drier conditions the Vapor may be a good unit for you though.

I wish the stock US 08' unit I have had an odometer on it. I might try to find one on ebay. I will at least mount a tach/hour meter like you did, how does Yamaha expect you to keep up with maintainence without an hour meter or odometer?

Its worth it.. It adds a few features over stock. But... be sure to get one of those billet protectors for it. WIthout that, it is fragile. WIth it, it lasts a while.
