cf moto 500-2A tachometer
« on: March 22, 2018, 06:47:10 AM »
Hi,

Was wondering how to connect the tachometer and which one do I need to use to get it work accurately?? ;)

In my mind:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-1-16-GlowShift-Black-Elite-10-Tachometer-Gauge-w-Adjustable-RPM-Warnings/292142709128?epid=595836916&hash=item44050ff988:g:NlEAAOSwQiFab30O&vxp=mtr

according to description should work on 1 cyl engine?

I'm surprised the 500s don't have it built in the pod like the 800s. Many aftermarket tachometers quads and motorcycles just have you wrap a wire around a plug wire to detect the electrical pulse of the plug firing. In any case, always follow the instructions. They do make tachs for these in a much smaller version as well. That one looks a bit large and may not be waterproof. 


Might consider something like this. I use Trail tech products and found them very reliable and durable.

Hmm..per the Trail Tech site, only the panel mount TTOs have the backlight. But the Voyager does..which is what I had on my Brute.
