Anyone have a picture or description of how/where they have mounted the display unit of the XT Ultralap timer on an 06-07 10r? There's not much room there. Maybe some kind of clamp-on mount on the upper fork?

I put the display in the trunk and then check it after each session do not want it out where it will distract me while running.

Here is how I mounted mine.



I got the mount from this place

http://www.laptimerholders.com/

I got the 50mm. It is a little bigger so I used a piece of plastic tube to make it fit snug. I have used it that way all season and had no problems. Also by buying the 50mm mount it is easy to transfer as most forks are 50mm now.

I've mounted the display on the top triple with a stem stand that I made. The receiver is mounted in the nose looking out through a 3/4" hole I cut in the fairing.

I think its important to be able to see your lap times after each lap, you can gauge if you've made improvements with line changes or anything else you've done differently. You can't remember when your looking at it back in the pits.

Velcro is your friend ....

I velcro'd the display on tank, couple inches from gas cap.

For the receiver I have 1 small velcro piece on uppers, on each side,

(depending on how many different tracks/configurations you go to) I can

swap/stick the receiver on either sides.

I NEVER look at my times during (track day)session..your eyes should

always be on the track.

Once the bike is on stands and warmers on, then I'll take a look.

(using the memory on the Mychron).

:cool:

I'm with JP on this one: velcro to tank and wait till the session is over before checking times.

If it's just a trackday I don't tend to pay attention to the timer too much but when I'm actually **trying** to go fast and improve laptimes I'm checking mine pretty often. I tend to have several splits memorized so I typically have a good idea how my lap is going long before it's over. I velcro my timer somwhere visible while I'm riding usually to the gauge cluster or the triple tree.

During a race I tend to only check the timer going across start/finish if at all...
