Default Questions on hour meters.


I am looking to buy an hour meter with a wire for my yz 250 t2. what bands do some of yall use and dose the 2 sided tape work well ? I know those ones with out a wire work on vibration i heard they also work when being bounced around say in the back of a truck as well as when your riding it cause it works on vibration?

The one I have now is a Hardline I believe, I used some heavy duty velcro to attach it to the frame, no issues so far. On past bike I've ziptied the thing to keep in in place, 2 sided tape never did the trick for me. The wireless ones tend to be less reliable for the reasons stated, I'd stick with a wired one. They aren't difficult at all to install. When I was looking for one for my current bike I found a TON of different variations of some less expensive ones but chose to pay a little more and go with something name brand not knowing if the cheaper ones would last very long or not.

I've had good luck with the double sided tape personally.

I have the ones Rocky mountain sells and they have been fine.
