    In looking at pictures of your bikes, I see that some have a tachometer. Was this an add on or just some years had them? My 2006 does not have a tach. Can I put one on from another year?

    They are all add-ons of one kind or another. I put in the Vapor as I needed to replace my speedo too. There's a bit of a delay as well, and the bar is not as intuitive as a dial. Does the job but not quite as good as a 'real' tach.

    No tach on any year. Any you see are aftermarket.



    Here's the one I put on. Can't say it's real great. It' lags behind actual rpm, and is not very easy to see.







    Here's another choice:

    Here is mine and my homemade mount. Big time lag in reading but I like it anyway. It also functions as an hour or Hobbs meter keeping track of engine run time.



    This is where I bought it. http://www.enmco.com/ (Click on "New Products" for discounted items.)



    It was on sale and cost $25.83 including shipping et. al. They also had a volume discount. If you buy 10 or more it is 40% off. Something to keep in mind if you can find 9 other people that want one. (Or if you can only find 5 other people, go ahead and order 10 and get the discount and have 4 extra for free! The cost of 6 w/o the discount equals the cost of 10 with the discount)





    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Seems, even with the time lag, I find my "tiny tach" useful when making a carb adjustment. Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........
