I've got one of the original Veypor systems{i don't think they are related} and i am well impressed i with it.The only critisizm is that it has too many different options and functions really.Dead easy to fit except that picking the right coil wire to connect to was interesting but no real bother.

The mirror jobs are so cool, I'd love those but it'd look silly with big gap in the cockpit, but on a proper fighter it'd be fine.

speedo isn't part of an MOT

its part of the traffic act or something...only coppers are bothered if you don't have one...not MOT testers!

I've got a motogadget for the sponny dance1

I had an interesting conversation with Local MOT tester along those lines. But they have to log a mileage too.
Still want to fit summat thats kool without costing too much.
Unless anyone knows different the Vapor seems the cheapest solution without going so lo-tech as a cycle computer. Laughing

Are you sure? When I was a tester there had to be a speedo fitted if the bike engine is over 50cc.
