Default Trail Tech Vapor Vs Koso Xr-Sr

Anyone with experience with either or even both want to reccommend the better one. The only complaint ive read on the koso is the delay in the digital readout tach where the digital/analog tach on the vapor is supposed to be very responsive and accurate. The indicators on the koso are nice but if i go with the vapor i will be adding the dash with indicators and the shift lights on the vapor would be very nice.

I plan on ordering this headlight and im taking off the fairing stay so i wont be able to use the stock ones and on the highway my tach is very bouncy and fluxuates between 6-8k erradically.

another route you can go is with a danmoto 180 sp8... a buddy of mine just ordered one and installed it in a half hour and they look freaking sweet with the full digital display, i have also just ordered one and as long as your crank sensor is 12v per pulse the rpm is right on. it comes with no mount but mounting bolts and nuts to make your own. heres the link... Danmoto 180 Digital Cockpit Speedometer Tachometer Gauge Speedo Tach SP8 | eBay if you decide to go that way let me know as for i can send you an actual wire schematic for your bike, one that is blown up and easily read with a legend. good luck

Just posted a little video of the Danmoto gauge in my build thread. It is poor quality but you can see more on Youtube. It didn't take long at all to hook up but I won't know how well the speed and tach functions work for a while. When I've tested them some I'll post some updates.

I love my Vapor. easy to install, bright, easy to read tach and speedometer...my only gripe is that it's hard to see the Neutral Indicator (optional dashboard) in direct sunlight, but other than that it's pretty awesome.

I ended up going with a vapor and im happy with it. Did your dashboard kit come with the led bulbs? mine had halogen ones but they also threw in a set of led bulbs for it which are much brighter.

I like the danmoto gauge, especially since It's priced @$150 cheaper than what I originally wanted. Good video davideokills! Hey TeamAeD1, do u still have those schematics to pass along? I most likely will be in need of a little help.
