PostSubject: aftermarket tacho   Thu Oct 30, 2014 2:02 pm

like many i do the odd job here and there when funds allow (ie when not being robbed by the kids schools for something or other) I have an 05 m800,and i've been considering for a while fitting a rev counter. If possible id prefer a digital one but im not overly fussy
couple of questions - what have people fitted and their opinions
did you fit straight to handle bar or any more inventive ways
finally what would you consider to be red line
thanks very much in advance folks

I have used a cheap battery powered, all weather hour/tachometer for my boat. It works great, is easy to install with just a wire around one sparkplug wire, and is dirt cheap.

Similar to this one:

I have now fitted a cheap electronic counter, the type that is usually stuck on and has the other end of the wire wrapped around the spark plug lead. it works very good ( - HERE - ) is a link to the original thread.
I use to have a Baron tacho ( - LINK - ) but had no luck with it, which is not unusual, many many people on the net have complained about the particular product.
My Baron tacho was fitted to the bars but the cheap tacho is fitted to the plastic clock display on the tank of my bike.
Here is Red line info:
1st-34
2nd-65
3rd-87
4th-106
5th-125 - good luck with hitting that. You will have to of had the rev limiter removed & be riding downhill with the wind behind you.
I have a VS1400 drive on my bike, the rev limiter over ridden & a FI module fitted & still not reached it.

i managed to source a new original suzuki item from fleabay, fairly easy to fit if a bit fiddly. i think there was one on there a few days back from the US.
