    How many RPM's does your tach indicate your cranking at 55mph in 5th gear? Just curious. How many at 50 if you don't mind testing it - let me know thanks,

    50 mph is 2500rpm
    55 mph is 2750rpm
    60 mph is 3000rpm

    You can safely go to 55 in 2nd gear without hitting the rev limiter.

    The rev limiter kicked in at just over 6,000 rpm.

    That looks good seems like no vibration coming from the mount I wanted to put a Drag tach. on my bike but the mount tab looked like it would shake a little Was the wiring instructions pretty easy to understand Thanks Tony

    It works really well. I rode it about 60 miles yesterday and it doesn't vibrate at all.

    The wiring instructions were very general (not specific to any one bike). There are 4 wires. One goes to the coil, one to ground, and the other two to a power source. I wussed out and paid my local bike shop to wire it. It took him 1 hour.

    I bought and put one of these tachs on my bike a few years a go. The problem I have had with mine and has done it right from day one is that at an idle the needle bounces all over the place. If you slowly roll on the throttle it settles down and when you are driving it settles down but if you idle it’s all over the place. Anyone have this problem?
