I've looked up lap timers on the web and the ones I've seen are very expensive, undoubtedly accurate with some kind of beam you cross, etc. Is there any sort of cheap lap timer that you can just press a button near your throttle or something to get some idea of your lap times as you cross some point on the track? :idunno: It'd be nice to measure your progress without having to have someone stand there with a stopwatch or something.

My buddy just got an XT and used it this weekend and loved it. He said it was well worth the $175 he paid. Though to answer your question, The only way I know to get an on board push button lap timer is to buy an Aprillia or a new Kawi.

I'm sure you could probably rig something up that you have to manually stop/start. Personally though, I wouldn't want to direct my attention away from riding to try and pick out a spot on the track to try and start/stop the thing at the exact same place. I think it'd be way too distracting and may cause a run-off or worse, as your attention would be drawn away from where it needs to be. It's not going to be very accurate, anyway. If you do lots of trackdays, find a used UltraLap or Micron. Both work with either beacon that's put out.

Prior to purchasing a Mychron, I strapped a stopwatch to the grip/controls area. I never used it! HGT is right, just buy one, they all work with the transmitters out there and youll enjoy not having one more thing to do.

I have the MyChron and it is great. You can usually find them pretty cheap on the racer message boards like wera, etc.
