Got some of those double spade connectors on friday, wired everything in and the tach was good for about a day. Then it was all crazy this weekend, >19k rpm, both lights blinking, etc. Emailed TrailTech and talked with Justin, super nice guy. Sounds like my kit was supposed to come with a tach wire lead with a resistor inline, and I just got a normal wire in mine, so he's shipping me a replacement one to toss on there. Found a few other posts floating around saying that its a 600k ohm resistor for anyone that wants to add one themselves, sounds like there's too much current/signal coming through on just a straight through wire, resistor is pulling it down so the Vapor can handle it without getting overloaded.

Cool, I haven't tried mine yet.
But, nothing inline to the coil.
Just a wire with a plug on one end.
I'll have to call them too.
You'de think they would have that figured out by now...and put it in the Raptor 700 box.
I have had so many returns trying to get good parts lately.
It's getting ridiculous, and I'm tired of people half-assin anything to try and make a dollar.

Yeah he had me double check the kit #, and verified that the one I got was the correct one. (752-118), and he said "We've never shipped one out without that part before!", yeah ok, I got an extra hose clamp in my box, but one less wire, someone definitely messed up there. I have some 330k ohm and 420k ohm resistors on hand so I could modify my existing cable and make it work, but makes more sense that they fix their screw up and just send us the right parts.

At least the GYTR Sport Front Grab Bar I got from partzilla was the right thing, looks nice on there too, can actually move this bastard around without tweaking my back from bending down. :D

I just spoke with a lady at TrailTech.
Very nice and helpful.
She mentioned Justin, and confirmed he said some Vapors went out without that wire, and no problem, we'll send you one out.
Wow, what a nice change of pace.
Trail-Tech is friendly, knowledgeable, helpful...and stand behind what they sell!
Props to those guys!
And Leonard4, thanks for the info and help!

I dont remember any kind of resistor. Did they mention if this was for all raptors or just the newer ones?

Awesome just got shipping confirmation. Thanks again. I have a friend who has a 2016 Raptor 700,
does this resistor wire fix only apply for the 2020 version or does it apply to all Raptor 700s?

Just asked Justin and this was his reply above, sounds like all Raptor 700s should be using a resistor inline on the tach lead for their Vapors.

Hmm. I wonder if I have one and dont even realize it... I remember having to use an inline fuse to power it but thats all

The way Justin described it is a 2" piece of heatshrink tubing about an inch or two below the white connector that hooks up to the back of the Vapor. If you don't have that, then its the old style non-resistor lead.

Sounds like it might be this right here. I never even noticed it! Lol. Glad you got it figured out, sorry for misleading you, i had no idea that was there

I put mine on a few days ago, working great. Justins original email said the ground wasn't needed so I just ziptied it up and tucked it out of the way. Going out this weekend so will see how it works, but in the garage the tach looks more consistent and smoother. Not getting that 19k rpm blip like I was last week.

Thanks for the info...they never mentioned the ground to me.
