I have a 99' 900 monster that I recently purchased an aftermarket tachometer for. Well Installation was going pretty well until I tried connecting the electrical hook up from the tach to the bike. Well the female end wouldn't go through the hole in the back of the tach housing. I was wondering if any of you ran into this problem. Should I cut a larger hole or do i need to break the connection down more. Any input would be great. Thanks

I think it's called a road racing or road racer. Fast by Ferracci caries it and they were selling it on e-bay. I just hooked up the electrical wires without connecting the face plate. Wow I never realized how easy I was being on the bike. I was just trying to judge my rpm's based on engine sound and with Marvings aftermarket pipes it sounded really loud at 4.5K. Know I know I can push her a lot more. I think I'll end up cutting the rest of the wires and feeding them through the hole backwards. I think that is what was originally intended.

My DP tach died and I have been pissed ever since.

I judge the RPM on powerband. I hope that I not reving to high. I usually change when there is no more power from it.

I hear ya, I think I am being too easy on my machine also. I would love a tach..... I've seen a few tach kits for $350, looks like the one in the DP catalog. The FBF tach kit is very nice also.

Dents, if you don't mind me asking... how much did you pay for your tach kit?

I don't mean to gloat but I got my road racing tach kit for $300. Actually 300 is a lot even if I did get a good deal. ;)
