    Hey everyone, I am new to this form, I just bought my first bike and it was a 2010 TW. Paid 3gs, but it only had 850 miles on it and still looked brand new. Anywho, wondering if anyone has installed a tachometer? If so, what kind and how?



    Thanks, looking forward to chatting with you all.

    I believe some have. I haven't done this myself, but you could look into http://trailtech.net/vapor.html. Would replace the speedo too though.

    I'm really happy with this one: http://www.cabelas.com/maintenance-g...-meter-2.shtml



    You have to set it for the correct spark count. Tdubs have a "wasted" spark so you need have it count accordingly, but set up is easy and the directions are clear.

    I got a small one on E-bay for a lawn mower, it is also a hour meter, I used a strip of double back tape. Get the tape made by 3M, I put it on top of the speed meter, It is small 11/2X 1. Only needs to wrap one wire from unit around spark plug wire. When I go 50 MPH It showes that 5500 RPM. At 64. MPH 7700 , I only cost $10 with shipping!

    Can you provide a link?



    I've bought 2 different ones, both junk. One was not programmable, so read double. The other seems to saturate or something, it is rarely anywhere near right...
