Hello
I am having difficulty locating a cheap tach for my racebike. I heard about some cheap sun gauges that go to 11K but come up blank on search. About to be on my 4th auto meter, I am done with them. I don' t need space shuttle digital readout , just $50 tach that won't blow up. Is there such a thing?

about 4 mos ago I shipped back tach for repair. They sent me a "new" one like they did you. Didn't have it as soon as I could have because their S/R dropped ball. 3 laps later needle fell off. Shipped back, got another "new" one. 8 laps later the core has got tourette's syndrome. I think instead of RandR ing the tach you send them, they pull one of their older units off shelf, and these are rife with issues as above.
may as well start playing with cheapy ones if this is what autometer does for me.

well I remembered today that I had an SVS gauge assy laying around my garage. So I put that on, but had to rearracnge front of bike to get it to fit, you can't just trim the circuit board up and install tach only, you have to run that whole whopping thing. Oh and I haver regular SV and these are SVS gauges and you have to rewire connectors. On the plus side, it was free, and should last forever.
Yeah when my autometer was working I loved it. Make sure to disconnect it somehow when you have battery charger on bike though, they aren't lying that will mess it up.

thanks but that is beyond my electronic skills. I did manage to wire the assy into my stock harness and everything works(fuel and oil lights, that's all I wanted) so I am proud of myself. no worries now.
