Check out the Yamaha hour counters the newer model has a tachometer in it! So you can adjust your idle!

You really don't need to know the amount of revs your bike is doing as you fly down a dirt track! The last thing you want to do is have a look at a speedo etc! You will end up busted upside down on the track! You only need a tacho to set the idle. once you know what it is you can just listen and set it by ear! Just ride more and know that there is always abit more left in the motor! these bikes truly have awseome motors!
