    This is a simple guide to transponders signup/activation. What/where to buy, and how to register and link it to your Motosportsreg profile so you get accurate times and results.

    Technical info for charging/usage can be found here http://emra.ca/forums/index.php?threads/transponder-quick-start-guide.4326/

    The EMRA like most North American clubs uses the MYLAPS transponder system. The bike device is available for purchase here: https://speedhiveshop.mylaps.com/motorbike/x2-transponder-bike.html


    1) It can take a couple weeks to arrive, so order it ASAP if you haven't already. Once it arrives, follow the instructions in the package to activate your subscription

    2) log in to your Motorsportsreg profile which you created to sign up for Race school here: https://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/event/login.form

    3) Once logged in, click the MY ACCOUNT tab, in which you will see your registered bike in the lower left corner. If you dont have a bike registered, do so with the hotlink below "GARAGE"

    4) Click "edit" beside the bike you want to use for racing.

    5) Halfway down the screen you will see the "TRANSPONDER" bar. Type the number off the transponder here, and be sure to click SAVE VEHICLE at the bottom of the screen.

    Thats it! You're all set to race and get recorded times for qualifying position where applicable.

    NOTE- BE SURE YOUR TRANSPONDER IS MOUNTED ON THE LEFT FORK TUBE, WITH THE ARROW POINTING DOWN AS SHOWN IN THE INSTRUCTIONS. IF INCORRECTLY MOUNTED TIMING WILL NOT WORK.

    Be prepared for the "over the top" UPS brokerage fees. Just ordered mine a couple of weeks ago.

    these units can be picky with the charging unit you use. in my experience, APPLE PLUGS DO NOT WORK.

    i have had good success with blackberry and samsung plugs. make sure you note the color of the lights when you plug it. iIf you are a new user I HIGHLY recommend you charge a week in advance, unplug and check the battery light flashes. keep it unplugged for a couple days and check back. then recharge it for race day.

    as jeff mentioned, make sure this is on your fork tube. this is the best place for it. it will not pick up if you mount it horizontally.
