I use 1625 for tire size. Used the method in which on a flat surface you mark the tire sidewall and the ground with a marking pen. Roll the wheel until the mark on the tire completes one revolution and is back on the ground. Mark the ground at this location. Measure the distance between the marks on the ground and convert the measurement to mm (multiply inches by 25.4). Use this number for your wheel size. For accuracy, the rider’s weight should be on the bike when making this measurement. I also used a level to make sure the tire had completed the revolution (marked the tire on the outside and the center of the hub to make sure it was more exact.

I measured height of tire, multiplied by 25.4 and then by 3.14 and got 1675, but I have stock front 21", what do you have??

I screwed it to the key mount, ill get protective case later, the mount they give you is shit on a raptor because there is no where to put it except by the controls or diagonal...

I also have stock 21" tires. Remember that the tire will compress a bit because of the bike's and your weight, thus reducing diameter a bit. Do like I told you on previous post making sure you are on the bike when rolling it fot the one revolution.

Hey deception, I just mounted the vapor on the OEM dash like on the top left picture on this address:

Just wrap tach wire around the coil wire going to the sparkplug and call trailtech about the power, the red one goes to one in the key switch and the other is grounded to handlebars, not sure which key wire though.
