I was wondering what Tachometers you have used on your bikes? I'm not totally convinced on doing a digital one yet. But I kinda like the Autometer but I don't think a 5'' monster Tach will look good either. Maybe a digital on will work for me but I want something I can read also. What do you use and how do you like?

I used a Shindy Daytona tach (a small digital tach). I didn't really have any problems seeing it, but it was just a little slow response. It was pretty cheap, so it is a good value, but probably not the best for any fine tuning jobs.

I haven't used any tachs yet myself but I was told by the tech department at Trail Tech that they should have a small digital tach available the beginning of this year. I guess it is supposed to be similar to the Tiny Tach & Daytona digital tachs but have quicker response times.

I use a Trail Tech Vapor with the dash board, it has a sweeping tach and I can see it well, plus I like having the other options it has.

I run the Trail Tech Vapor too. The nice thing about the Vapor is it has the Sweep Tach (Which you can kind of see in the pic. It shows up great when you are running the motor.) and the 00 down in the right hand corner is a numerical Tach. It also has a High RPM recall. Not to mention, that their Bar Clamp and Vapor mount is top notch.

I like my Digatron.
It also has two temp sensor inputs,I use one for coolant and one for exhaust temp. It also can be setup with a lap timer,but I never messed with that part.

I have a Tiny Tach; cheap to buy, but the response time is about 1.5 seconds behind. That doesn't make a difference on an automatic quad, but not good for a manual shift.
Tiny Tach now makes a more expensive version that has no lag, but of course it's more money too.
I don't see how anyone can do accurate clutch tuning w/o a tach.

You can do it with timers,but it will only be good for those conditions.
If you know how your engine makes the power at the crank,your tach will make it easier to set up for any conditions.
A tach will make it so much easier to be consistent.

A sweeping needle tach is easiest to read IMO.

Yup, reds650 had one on his old P650. Very easy to see when at speed.

Is that a 3 1/2'' tach? I thought about doing that but just the Tach I don't need all that other stuff. Well atleast I don't think I do. So is that EFI Camo since you have 0-100 PSI for the fuel pressure? How far have you had the boost up to? Monkey are you going to out do Camo?
