How did you mount the Hour/Tach on you're bikes?

I just picked up one from the dealer today, measures RPM's and Hours, I don't get how to mount this now...since I can't go around the spark plug itself obviously because its down in the engine...I was wondering if you guy's like wrap it around the black spark plug cap or what?

I run mine into my airbox and use velcrow with tape on the back. That way I can move it if I want and it is tucked away nice and neat.

to to my garage, click the sendec mod thing and you'll see pics of how it's all set up on mine.

this link may work... http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/garage.php?do=viewmod&mid=16531

good luck

Alright, so you just mounted it, then ran the wire around the spark plug wire(s), zip tied them a couple times, down to the black thing...then you just wrapped it all around there?

It works good?

THANKS A LOT, I will try it out, grab a few more zip ties...thanks.

Thanks man, working great. One quesiton though, manual says 1900~2100 RPM, Mine was High, so I adjusted it down to around 1950~2000, but when I pull the choke out it's at like 2600RPM, is this normal?

No idea - i dont have a tach on mine... i run the idle pretty low, though.

the way i mounted mine still works fine. never had to touch it - 57.9 hrs and counting.

I did the same thing.

barch- I have some pics floating around here somewhere of how I wrapped the wire around the coil, do a search and if you can't find it let me know. I zip-tied my meter to my throttle cables, for whatever reason the sticky tape I had did not want to stay stuck to my frame. It sounds kind of hoky, but it's actually pretty sano looking- I can get a pic of that too if you want.

me too - ziptied to throttle cables works great. I have several friends that lost theirs with the tape/velcro method

Yeah, it's all done. I also ran 2 zip ties through the holes on the Meter instend of using the Velcro or screws, this way I know it won't fall off, and I won't have to drill into my frame. I will post some pictures of the bike next week, I ordered a bunch of GYTR hard parts, and bars, and just a bunch of stuff for it, so it will be a whole new bike.

I just zip tied the wire to the spark plug wire(s), then wrapped it around the cap, like Reyndogg did. Works great, looks great, and thanks for the help agian everyone!

I mounted mine in the bar pad. Mine has a tach and with it mounted this way I can watch the RPM's as I adjust the fuel screw and idle screw.

What brand is it? where did you buy it? how much you paid for it?

Thanks

It is a Sendec. Bought it on Ebay for twenty something.

An easier solution is to buy a small GPS (Garmin forerunner is the size of a Timex watch or your Tach). Not only it will give you all the info you need (speed, distance, average speed, etc.) plus you can use it to backtrack and put waypoints. :thumbsup:

You can "velcro it" to your bars. However the very small one do not have the capacity to upload maps.

That would be good for trail riders, me however, MX only...I don't think I will get lost.
