    I've seen it and it is hilarious, brianmac. Maybe someone could invent a mirror that has headups display to show tach on one and oil temp on the other, gotta check the rear view every now and then anyway. I bought this bike with 7922 miles and if i am vigilant, i can have it for many years and make it my last bike i will ever own.

      Using a Diesel 52mm tach is a good way to go. Our engines don't rev up to most tachs that go up to 8000 rpms, and with a lower scale tach, you have a better reading of rpms. It is easy to set up on our bikes and is small. The signal wire for the tach is from any one of the 3 generator wires, then you set the frequency and fine tune on the tach.
      This is the tach I've been using and works great. I have my bikes rpm limit set at 5000 rpms, which I rarely go that high of RPMs, but if I do, it will not hurt the tach.
      How did you adjust the tach for accuracy? Did you compare it to another tach or what.

        Yes, I used a digital tach.

          Under the fuel tank green wire is the pulse/trigger wire on the left coil and grey is the trigger for the right and orange triggers the left you can connect the tach to either one

              “Under the fuel tank green wire is the pulse/trigger wire on the left coil.....”

              Think he meant to say the green wire on the tach is the one you hook to either the grey or orange wires of the coils.

                  I am actually thinking about a digital gauge.

                    Henry Swanson on the Facebook RSC site has a digital tach and oil pressure gauge on his bike.....

                  I prefer analog dials.

                  A quick glance at a needle and where it’s pointing tells me what I want to know. Trying to read a bunch of small numbers takes too long.

                      This is the one I use.

                      I broke the glass on the first one. Swatting at a spider with my hat.

                      Still have the old one.

                        just a word on tachs for RS's. i have had RS's for over a decade, (cant remember ) , 3 of them. i only hit the rev limiter once of twice; theres guys here who hit it all the time, they say. but my shoulder top tach/dyno tells my foot to shift well B4 that point...........so i dont need a tach unless im riding behind some noisy ass scoots, or I had a kick ass stereo( which can also prove hazardous to your health) if u depend on hearing while riding, which I do not.

                          My god, I'm glad we are all different and spend our money as we see fit, you think the rest of the world don't know when to shift the R* lol, Some like to dress up their bikes & hit the rev limiter.

                          i guess i dont see a tach as jooleryon a bike, maybe on a dash of a musclecar. but some guys here say they hit the rev limiter frequently. i am most definitely an motorcycle enthusiASSt, and drive ASSertively, but i almost never hit it. the power band just takes a dump up there. dont get me wrong, these bikes are way powerful enuf for me.
