Anyone tried the TinyTach TT226R-2C?  It only updates every 2.5 seconds, but whaddaya expect for $37.  It comes in several configurations for 1cyl, multi-cyl, 2-stroke, 4-stroke.

The Tiny-Tach is very very similar to the Northern Tools tach .   Probably runs the same other than it looks like it has a reset.

As for the tach it will work.

Wow, thanks Sevier... I was just about to buy the Dyna kit from them.  I searched the forum and found the many complaints about them.  Good enough for me to stay away from them.  Thanks a bunch!

....Here is some free advice -- don't bother putting a tach on an LS650......


Well, I wouldn't quite that far.

I've got the ENM model mentioned by the OP, but I use it purely for diagnostic purposes.

This one:  



I've got the wire wrapped around the spark plug wire, with the free end tucked away.

When I need to set the idle speed, I just hook the tach up to the wire and set the idle speed.  When I'm done, I disconnect the wire and put the tach back in my drawer.

Will this work on our bikes, if used thru the timing cover?

Before you get that one you might want to try running the bike w/out that cover on.   Huh

You'll find info somewhere on that one, or something similar.

Isn't our stator behind that cover? That doesn't run "wet" does it?

You'd have to mount something shiny to the stator for the tach in your first link to work. I don't think the stator wold smile about it.

As I've said in another post elsewhere, the bonafide Tiny-Tach works fine... (don't know about the subs on e-bay). I've used three and yes, the un-lit basic model will go inoperative within 5 yrs, or so says the manufacturer. I'm just going to use my Oscilloscope (o'scope) for setting the idle. If I were to mount a tach permanently, I'd probably go for the lit one like I have in my 84 Diesel Rabbit, or just cannibalize it since the Rabbit is half dead (sigh, she were good while she lasted Sad.

I concur  Cool

It's an excellent tach ... the range is about right ... price is good ... easy to hook up ... and it looks the part.

There are a couple of threads on this forum about making custom mounting brackets.
