What temp to program to a Vector dash?

I'm replacing the stock speedo with a trail tech Vector and it will read engine /coolant temp and give a yellow warning for high temp and a second red for a "danger" temp but those temps need to be programmed into the computer. Anybody know what max temp makes the stock temp light come on and that I should program to give the computer a reference # for the lights?

Thanks

Replacement keys?

Yep, I lost my key. Wifey searched high and low for a local locksmith to do a copy. Eventually she got someone who could do it. Finally got one, but although it looks like an identical cut, it wont go in.

Anyone else had success with this?

How much for a BMW replacement?

Maybe if you just clean your copy up a bit with a wire brush or some wet n dry to get it a little more rounded it might work

Had a replacement cut at a supermarket with no problems. Alittle bit rough to put in the first time so give it a bit of a rub like DS suggested to take sharp edges off.

On my 1150GS I had keys cut by a hardware store no problems. The keys are same type (cuts on both outer edges). My HP2 only came with one key (totally different key flat on the outer edges cuts in the center) and I just ordered a key from my BMW dealer $50. They just needed the Vin# and it came and it works. So unless the Xchallenge keys have some electrical component the key you had made should work just double check it and clean it up a bit. If that dosnt work take it back to the guy who cut it and make a new one. OR the dealer can order a factory key for you with a VIN#.

I'm replacing my rear tire on Saturday.. Anything unusual about the XC I need to be aware of? I have ABS..
Otherwise it's just off with the oold and on with the new right?

Look at the price of #1.

Guess I will take it easy on my charging system. Wonder if Rotax sells a kick start kit.

What is the charging system on the Xmoto and Xcountry like? Same as the Xchallenge?



I could be wrong, but (1) looks like the entire assembly of parts 2 through 10. Looks like a few of the big pieces are not available separtley.

What about having the stock one rewound for more power? This guy use to rewind all the stuff for Baja teams http://www.rickystator.com/catalog/i...hp?cPath=24_36

Did you see the 3 lbs difference between the Dakar & XCH? I guess we know where a big portion of quicker revving came from.......3 lbs.!!!!

If you don't have ABS, I'd get the ROX so you can move the bars fwd or back as well (I'm the same height)...I have ABS, so was limited to the 20mm and would have preferred going for more...
