The Tiny Tach has been around for years and is a good cheap option for a tach. If you are willing to spend just a bit more, you should check out the Trail Tech Vapor, that has some very nice options and works well on the Kawi V-twins.

BidDaddy, how come? I had not heard that. I know the trail tech is a pretty simple setup and the signal lead actually wraps around the plug wire.

I can't really tell you exactly all the details but when I got ready to buy a tach for mine I wanted a autometer and I was told by everybody that the 08 was no problem but the 09 had a different signal. I called MSD and Autometer and they both told me the same thing along with v force john and several others that should know, I bought a pick up from MSD and Autometer told me that they only had 2 series tachs that would work for that application so thats what I did, something to do with the number of pulses per rev.

I am sorry I can't remember exactly what I paid, the Mini Monster series has several tach in it you can search autometer mini monster on ebay and it will pull a bunch of them up, I did buy a pick up from MSD to hook to the coil and send signal to the tach, I have not really got to see it work because I have had my motor torn down since I bought it but you can call the people at MSD and they can tell you the details,the pick up is MSD 8918 Tach Signal GMR PickUP, also MSD can tell you what the tach has to be able to read to work, I think it was something like had to be able to work on like 1-10 cylinder reading, I know the 08 had a wire for a tach off the ignition but the 09 did not and thats why they said I needed the pick up I think the 08 fires 1 time per rev and the 09 fires 2 times per rev. Just call the guy at MSD amd they will make sense out of it all?
