    I,m wanting to buy a Tachometer for my bike. Like anyone I don't want to
    spend a arm & leg. E-bay has cheap to $$$$$$ ones. I really would like to have
    a conventicle hand dial type, but afraid the vibration on these motors would
    shake the hand right off.

    Before I jump off & buy one I need you guys advice AGAIN.

    Thanks Fly :rolleyes7:

    I just bought this digital tach/hour meter.


    Just wrap one wire around the spark plug wire and ground the other.
    It is settable for 2 and 4-stroke engines.

    Nothing fancy but for $15 it is something I need around the shop anyway and pretty portable.
    It will be here in a week or so, I'll let you know how it works.
