Equipment Review: Trail-Tech Vapor Computer

I smashed my stock DRZ computer to bits on my TAT ride.



So, I needed to find a replacement when I got home. After a lot of research, I settled on the Trail-Tech Vapor. It looked like it would do almost everything my factory computer did plus some (and it was much less costly than a new stock computer).

Installation was straightforward. The included directions were very clear and the kit came with everything I needed. I decided to make my own mount so that I could reuse the stock idiot lights.



In the few months I've been using it the Trail-Tech Vapor has proved to be reliable and easy to use. I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for a replacement or an upgrade over their stock setup.

1/21/2012 Update: After about a year of use the included battery died (that's about the expected life). No other issues to date. I'm still really happy with this computer and plan on putting one on my next bike as well.
