You can purchase tachs for these bikes on ebay. I have one on my 650 and it works great. Easy as L hook up.
The unit has a lithium battery and lasts a few years or more.
So no electrical to hook up, One wire connects to one of the spark plug wires you just wrap it around 5 times and zip tie it off.
It also acts as an hour meter. So you can keep track of service intervals based on hours of run time. And it converts to a Tachometer
when the engine is running. It does lag behind actual RPM just a bit
when accelerating but when a stabil cruise speed is reached and held
the numbers stay pretty constant.
These units are not expensive and very easy to mount and use.
I have some scrap plasic to make a mount for one I'll give you.
Just pay for shipping to your zip code from Apopka Florida.
If interested let me know and I'll find the ebay vendor for you.
