TrailTech Vapor Digital Gauge

Gday All,
I’m considering fitting a TrailTech Vapor Digital Gauge to my 05 FS650e. These USA gauges come with speedo, tacho and temp display/sensors so I thought It might be good to have. Have any of you ever come across or fitted them ??

If you want to check them out go to their web site at
They tell me their model 75-102 will fit a Husaberg FS650e with 17inch wheels.

Appreciate your advice

Thanks and regards
Mount Gambier

I fitted a TrailTech Vapor to my Yamaha TT250. It is excellent. It has never let me down and I have plenty of falls.
It has some neat features like retaining Maximum Engine Temp, Max Speed, Max Revs. It also has a handy Clock and Temperature Gauge and records ride time and ride distance.

It has 2 lights you can set for different functions. I used 1 light to come on for High Engine Temp.

My mates I ride with are always asking how far have we gone and how hot is it.

They are easy to set up too, although I had to make a little Aluminium bracket for the speed sensor on the front wheel as TrailTech dont make a TT250 kit. Think I used a WR250 kit.

As above i think the Trailtechs are a great piece of kit. Never had a problem with mine and found the two programable shift lights very handy as well as the two temp warning lights.

I have two 'bergs, and each have a Trailtech Vapor. Obviously I'm sold on them. Having said that, I'd probably go with a Vector instead. They are the same, except the Vector does not have a tach or the related shift point lights. The tach is, for me, the least important feature. They both have a temp guage, which is the most important feature to me.

If you ride a lot near the upper limits, then you might really use the tach. Either way, you can't go wrong. Also, the KTM specific units will work for you, although I'm not sure if a different model is needed for motards.

Hi John. Welcome to UHE.
Click on "Forums" on the left column of any UHE page.
Click on "Search" across the top of the next page.
Enter "Trailtech Vapor" into the keyword search box & hit enter.
There are 147 other references to the Vapor. A lot have some very useful info in them. Sorry if this gives too much to wade through!
Happy searching!

G'Day John,
By all accounts the VT is really good and stands up to a fair hiding. A number of my members use them as a cheaper alternative to OEM gear and/or incorporate them as part of MX bike Rec Reg abilities.
There is a new provider in Oz for all things MX/Enduro and he has some good specials on the VT so certainly worth checking out.

This is his site:

And you can also catch him in here:

There a great unit have had one for about 6 months no dramas with anything working as described on box. give great info on rpm and temps and shift lightand warning light get your attention very easy even though they are small. The only real problem i have had is the magnet (husaberg one) on disk may not be as close as it should be and sometimes loses it speed above 165km i think this is caused by the beringer floating disk on the motards.
