Here are some pics of the installed Vapor digital gauge from Trail Tech:

A few notes on the install part : I couldn't find a good place for the mounting bracket that comes with the kit , I had to make my custom bracket .

As of today I still need to resolve an erratic readout for the RPM on the gauge, I'm working with trail tech to find the problem. Everything else works fine and I'm happy with the addition to the bike !

just read everything on that vapor and it has everything.. like more then id even want lol did anybody ever install one?
I got the Vapor but I couldn't get a steady RPM reading on my ATV, did a lot of troubleshooting with trail tech support, and it was jumping around . I switched the Vapor with a Striker , that way I can keep an eye on the electrical system and have all the other functions I need- speed, distance , engine temp and run time.

$129 and install is not too bad; you have to cut into your radiator hose to install the temperature sensor and then the speed sensor installs on one of the front wheels rotor shields. Maybe 2-3 hours job. It took some time for me to make my own custom bracket for the gauge because I didn't like the bracket that comes with it .

You need the kit 712-2055 and I see it's $98 on amazon now.
