Try copying and pasting this one. I am pretty sure that it's the one on my bike. But just about any electronic tach will work. Just maybe instead of looping the sensor around the Spark plug wire some may have to be hooked to the number one coil.

Yes sirs Hal and Chuck,

There is a plethora of mini tachometer brands out there:
Baron
Bikers Choice
Drag specialties and
Yih Tyan
just to name a few, from analogs to digitals.

Chuck, you just need to find the one you like the best. Don't think the wiring will be an issue for you. Just follow the manufacturers directions.

Good luck.

Thanks again Hal for checking things out.
