Love the style of the Rebel. Wish Honda gave us a tach and engine temp gauge. Cheap [email protected]


Yes, yes, I know, we don't really need it. Still would be good to have, in my opinion

You can get an after market tach quite cheaply but I don't know of an engine temp guage.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

I know. Would've been cooler and better to have it stock instead of spending extra money on a tach and running wires and a mount and finding a spot to put it without it being intrusive on the handlebar.

I don't really care about a tach but I really wish that the instruments were analog. In bright sun from some angles the dial is unreadable even at the highest brightness setting. Oh, and I'd rather have a gear indicator (yes, I know there's after market) than a tach because first on this thing is so *&%#! low and I never want to be there if I'm already moving ... and I'm not always sure where I am, so I end up going all the way down and then back up to second.
