My lap timer broke : (

My XT Lap timer broke. I forgot to take it off during a rain event and the screen is all fucked up and the menu button won't work. I took it apart and cleaned it with electro wash and its still broke. DAMN IT!

That's too bad. Now I guess you will have to ask Santa for a new one.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

If I can't get this thing fixed for a decent price or the warranty is void I am never buying another one of these things again. If I want to know my lap times then I have to race.

All this lap time bullshit is over rated anyway.

If you decide it's trash, let me know. I'd like to tinker with one. I'm not CET or anything, but I play around with stuff. Maybe it's possible to find out where the times are stored and move the prom?

PM if you want to part with it. I have heard before that they do not like rain, or high humidity.

So true.

Hey Nick you can borrow mine if you'd like. I won't be needing it for awhile. It's an XT that's barely used.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Do what you will as long as it is returned in the same condition in which it was loaned.

Same thing happened to mine about 3 months ago. Check out XT's website. They have an online form of what to do to get it fixed. I think they replaced the whole reciever part of mine and shipped it back to me for something like $30.

I just called XT Racing and they said it usually doesn't cost more than 30 bucks to fix it. So if anyone else has a broke lap timer, go to this site http://www.cc-2000.com/xtracing/en/support.html and fill out the repair form on the bottom and ship your lap timer to them.

Send it to XT... They do a great job, and turnaround is pretty quick...

Also,

Lap times ARE overrated!

ESPECIALLY when Wally's are so much better than mine! What's next, is Greg going to start beating me around the track?

Yep... I remember how hard you were to pass during the middle of last season... I figured I'd give you a hard time while I still can. Next season I'm sure the RR will go flying by. I might have stood a chance if you'd have stuck with the F4 I sold ya!

I've ridden in the rain quite a few times with my Mychron. I expected it to be waterproof, and I would expect nothing less from the XT. Rain laps need timing too. So you can see how damn slow they can be. So I'm a bit surprised that rain did it in.

I wonder if they'll be able to fix it from being run over for that cheap? The display is cracked and has a goofy color to it. I suppose it's worth a try. Thanks!

Awww. Thanks for the kind words.
I was really suprised to hear that the F4 was pulling that hard on stock gearing. The RR is coming along. I'm getting the forks sprung properly this winter.

I got my bump at BHF when I got my lap times down to where you were when you got bumped. I did a lot of days this year, so I hope I learned all I could. I hope to ride with you again soon.

It was almost one year ago that I was standing in your garage wondering if I should buy the F4. Curious if I would like this track riding thing. Nervous that if I spent all this money on gear and bikes, I'd have to like it. Begging you to help me out at the track because I didn't know anyone.

You were right! Nesba is a great bunch of folks.

Dropped a wrench on one and broke the display once as well. Reapired for $25 plus shipping.

FYI

I sent my broke laptimer to XT. The screen was broke and it didn't work properly. They fixed it and shipped it back to me for 32 bucks. That is good business rite there. I am a happy customer. If you have the same problem, go to the website and fill out the service form and ship the timer to them, they will fix it.
