What do you think? I don't see a tach threading the stickies. I'm sure someone must have done this on a TW before. I see a lot of cheap motorcycle tachs on eBay. Is there a recommended one?
It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.
I got this off eBay for about $8. Using longer front brake master cylinder screws to mount it.
I don't want to know how fast that little motor is turning or I would never go over 30 mph.
Shift when it won't go any faster in the gear your in. I do that all the way to 5th gear and try to grab 6th.

There is a 4-stroke and 2-stroke version of the tach. On the 4-stroke version, the tach figures that, for every spark firing, the motor turns 2 revolutions. The 2-stroke version figures that every spark is one revolution. I have the 4-stroke version.
However, I think the TW200 fires on every revolution even though it doesn't need to. It triggers off the sensor from the crank, which is every revolution. My tach reads 600rpm at idle and 3800 rpm or so at 55mph or so. (Never really checked it. )
Does anyone here know if the TW200 ignition sends a spark out every revolution or has some way of knowing when it is on the compression stroke as compared to the exhaust stroke?
Yes it is a wasted spark system.
