hi everybody

hour meter?

21 posts in this topic

hey everybody..

so today I picked up a brand new 07 450(yaaaay!) and also picked up a Hardline hour/tach meter.....only to have the mechanic there tell me that it wont work. he said because the coil is built into the cap, that those kind of meters wont work....but after asking a friend who has the (im pretty sure) same exact model meter..AND same bike....says it will. and I have also seen tons of thumpertalk guys with it on there YZ450s...soo.....will this hour meter not work? or am I just being told false information? thanks!

TT has this handy little feature called search... make it your friend :applause: Yes the meter will work, you just wrap the lead wire around the cap of the coil. I have a pic of my install of a SenDec on the coil, but yours should install the same. I'll try to find the pic.

another quick tip on your hourmeter.Use velcro with the sticky back on it to mount it.That way if you ever purchase a new bike you can take it with you and not have 2 holes in the frame.

I made my holes bigger, and zip-tied it to the frame :applause:

Don't see too many of them but I sprung for the Dubach Research mount that goes underneath the nut on top of the top clamp. ice and sanitary, better looking than the 2 sided tape I used for so long.

i mounted mine under the pro-taper bar pad an cut out the pad and flushed mounted it. then cut out around the lcd display looks very trick.

I saw somebody use a similar approach to the Dr D , but they attached the bracket to the top mount on the gas tank. This looked more streamlined and out of the way in case of a crash.

Am I the only person that used two little zipties to mount it to the wires running down the right side of the frame? It works great and it's removable.

this is a pic of my hour meter under the bar pad

Looks trick. But what happens if you headbutt the bar pad in a crash. Wouldn't you smash the hour meter a bit :applause:
