I have one very similar to this

http://enmco.thomasn...t16-tachometer?



The actual one I bought may not be made any longer. I mounted it to the cross bar. It reads the rpm about once every .5 seconds. I bought it on sale but you probably can find similar ones on ebay for less money. For the low cost and ease of installation I rate it pretty high. I didn't think I would like or use the hour function but I do like it. BTW, they are $30 each but if you buy 10 of them they are only $18 each. Do you have 9 friends that might be interested in one or more?



This is the one I have. 99 hours in the saddle when I took this picture. My next picture will be at 168 hours. That will be equal to one week solid -- 24/7 -- of the engine running and me riding.





I hope this helps. Tony

I use one of these velcroed to the top of the brake fluid reservoir. The lead wire wraps around the spark plug wire.







There appears to be a delay between the engine rpms and the tach display.



If you decide on one of these, make sure you buy one that is a tach. They make one that looks identical but is only an hour meter.



Doing a search I found this vendor. You may find a better price.

I bought mine at the local Yamaha dealer.

I have the TTO tach. Doesn't take up much room,is reasonably priced, easy to install and works well. The tach doubles as an hour meter.They also make a nice compact temp gauge.
I just noticed this thread is 4 years old. Hopefully the OP got his tach by now.

I really like the mounting you did for the TTO gauges! What did you use to secure them?

I used a thin piece of aluminium sheet metal and bent it roughly 90' and fastened it to the instrument cluster with silicone RTV. Drilled holes for the wires and fastened the gauges to the aluminium shelf.
I had to add a piece of vinyl door edging to the top because the Jimbo shield vibrated like crazy against the shelf at high RPM's.

So I have a spare ecliptech tach i took off of my vmax:



Which has a 12+, 12- and a signal wire out the back. For those not wraping around the spark plug wire, where do you tie in? When i had it on the vmax i literally just had to connect it to the back of the oem tach as everything was there.

Looking at a wiring diagram, i think the best spot might be the orange wire between the coil and cdi, does that make sense?

Looking at that page of the manual it seems to agree, as long as it has a 12 or 5 v square pulse:
