Transponders

Frequently Asked Questions


Q. If there is more than one rider in a family, how many transponders does one family need

A. Transponders can be shared. Each transponder will have ID #. We will assign the transponder ID# to each rider that will be using it. As long as the riders are not in the same class, they can be shared. Note: If sharing a transponder, there will need to be a least 1 moto between your moto's. There is not enough time to change transponders in back to back races as the 2nd race has started before the 1st race is finished.

Q. How do the transponders attach to the bike

A. You attach a quick mount clip to your fork tube with zip ties, then snap the transponder into the quick mount clip and secure with the strap. Note: The transponder comes with one clip. Additional clips will be available to purchase.

Q. How does the transponder communicate with the scoring computer

A. A cable is buried across the finish line and the transponder is recognized from below. Every time you pass the finish line, no matter the number of bikes, you are recorded. This will produce immediate, accurate race results.

Q. How long do the transponders last? What is the warranty

A. Life expectancy is 8 - 10 years. Warranty is 3 years - full replacement for non working items - assuming they are not busted up and broken. Your Flex Transponder is always covered under warranty as long as you have subscribed to keep it activated. Your Flex transponder also has insurance for damage. If you damage your Flex Transponder, you can return it for a replacement once every three years.

Q. What happens if I want to borrow a bike to ride

A. Simply use your transponder on your buddies bike. No notification to the score keeper is necessary as the computer is reading the transponder, not the # on the bike.
