MY RPM IS READING TOO HIGH?
There is few things you can do to fix this. Try these things in this order. 1. connect RPM cable with ONE SINGLE cable tie to the mid point of the spark plug lead. This means as far away from the spark plug cap and the ignition module. DO NOT wrap RPM cable around spark plug lead as this will make reads high. Do not use supplied red RPM clip 2. upgrade firmware to latest version. 3. Contact Alfano Australia for further advice.
REPAIR OR WARRANTY – WHAT DO I NEED TO SEND?
It is always good to send complete unit with sensors. If you know 100% where the problem is (eg; smash LCD screen) then just send unit. With the newer Alfano Systems it is a must to send BOX, DISPLAY and cable connecting them.
MY ALFANO IS NOT RECORDING TIMES?
Sounds simple but check your magnetic pick up sensor for damage. 9 times out of 10 the sensor has been cut by side cutters, crimped or bent at right angles or worn through from rubbing on track or kart. If this is the case you can purchase a new one in the SHOP section. If this is not the case contact us for repair quote – we will check the whole system and find the problem.

MY ALFANO WON’T CONNECT VIA BLUETOOTH?
