Here is a review on a digital tacho and hour meter you can buy on ebay.

Link: Tachometer Hour Meter for Motorcycle,ATV,Sti,4 stroke - eBay Other Motors, Engines, Parts, Motors, Engines, Parts, Boat Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 17-Sep-10 14:06:54 AEST)

How to set it up:
It only requires you to wrap one of the wires around the spark plug cable for 30mm, and the other wire to ground.

Performance:
The tacho isn't very responsive when you rev the engine hard, but I have seen another digital tacho do the same thing. For the price I don't think you will get much better. The hour meter cant fail it only counts time...

Build quality:
The build quality was better than I expected its fully sealed and water proof which is a plus.

Overall:
I think for the price it's not a bad thing to have on your bike mainly for the reason of the hour meter. And for a few bucks extra I think the tacho is worth getting as well.

I hope there is no grammar errors, and this is an alright review :)

haha.


Yeah, looks alright, where did you mount yours? Does the tachometer just delay for a second or does it just not show?

Might have to get one..

Lol the one word I get wrong is the most important :(
Heres a picture from my motard thread:



And it just cant keep up like it will pick up idle then ill rev to wot and it will show up with like 3,200rpm 8,900 rpm then 10,450rpm it cant read as fast as it revs. If you were just tuning and reving slower it would be okay and responsive. Im also running a yx150 with IRK its very snappy.

Yeah, I remember now, I thought you had just a normal tachometer in there, and you just brought this one.. Lol, oh well.

Looks the goods anyways.

Thanks TyD and DHZ_XR.........

You could mount it pretty easy in a few different places with just cable ties. You can also extend the wires not like you would need to as they are already a decent length...

Sam, you didn't get it wrong (unless you've already corrected it), it is spelt grammar!

It never hurts to pick up a dictionary, or JFGI ;)

However, the sentence should read: "I hope there are no grammatical errors and this is an alright review :)".

+Reps all the same, no major mistakes up to there :p
