Tilt sensor?

Does anyone know how these work? Do they beep at 60 degrees or what? Thanks

I am not sure, give a some time I am sure someone will drop in and shed some light on it. Tilt sensor, that's a new one for me.

on the xtz 1000 they will actually throw a code on your speedo..it may start for a second but it will die within a second or two. Don't recall ever hearing a beeping sound, even when i was upside down on the roof... not sure what angle it cuts out at either, sorry.

Eh, there are two kinds of UTV drivers, those that have rolled their UTVs, and those that will....

The tilt sensor throws a code on your dashpod, then shuts down the fuel pump. It's a safety device to keep the engine from running while upside down, damaging the engine and potentially causing a fire. It doesn't make any noises that I've ever heard of....
