    Hey does anyone know if it's possible to fit a Tachometer from a Yamaha older XT to a TW?



    Here are some questions:



    -Where does the XT tech connect to?

    -Can the same be done on the TW?



    I personally think it would just "look cool" to have a tach that has the same shape and look as the stock speedometer, as if the TW came from the factory with the tach.



    I'm sure someone has looked this already? I know the efforts would be more for the cosmetic reasons rather than pure function, as it's prob a whole lot easier just to install a nice new Vapor.......

    Ok looks like it's gonna be really hard to make that happen.



    The XT case has spot for a screw like connection to the Tach cable....



    I can't seem to figure where this connects to, is it the starter gearing or oil pump gearing?



    Bummer, I would love to have this tach, just because of it's looks, but seems like the amount of work to make this happen just wouldn't be worth it.



    Any idea's anyone?
