    External Tach for tuning?

    I switched from the stock silver face instrument dash to an OEM dark face one. The replacment tach shows 500-600 RPM while the old one showed 1000. So I don't know if the original or the replacement OEM tach is correct. Does anyone use another temporary tach for tuning? Also, is there a...

    Chinese Tach / Speedo / Shift Light $42

    What do y'all think about this? I know generally you get what you pay for. This unit has everything in a nice heads-up package, how our first gen V-Max should have been designed (in my opinion). Maybe a pain to install and set up, but it looks very practical. Even a gear indicator! Tach /...

Was on my way to tackle the 'Hot Start" Problem. Then the voltage regulator fried. No big deal but got busy with other things an put the...

    Koso Analog Tach with water Temp problems.

    98 MAX here. I put a Koso tach on, and I used the Grey wire from the OEM lead. I'm having trouble getting the tach set right. At idle, my clip on tach on a cylinder lead shows 1230 rpms. With the koso set for a 4 stroke 4 piston, the needle is all over the place. Same thing happens when I set...

    runs on 2 cyls @ low revs/idle; tach goes dead.

    just started running on 2 cylinders when at idle, and tach goes dead. I twist the throttle ever so slightly, and I can feel when all 4 cylinders start firing at about 1150 rpm, and the tach simultaneously jumps to life. very hard to start now, if it'll start at all. when I do get it to start, I...

    Shift Light and Tach setups and aftermarket ignitions

    Looking to add a shift light and possibly a small tach next to my speedo. For sure a shift light. I don't really see that much of a need for a tach if I have the shift light really. Something that will bolt on to a completely stock ignition and then to an upgraded ignition. With that...

    KOSO DL Tach wiring question

    I recently bought one of the KOSO DL Tachometers, installed it on the bike, wired the signal wire to no.1 cylinder, started it up and all was working fine. I took it for a 20 min test ride and the tach worked fine for about 10 min. Then the RPM display went to 0 and wouldn't move. It would...
