how are you going to do both gear indicator and tach?

What would preclude one not working with the other?

I have the idea gear indicator, it's great. You can't install both into the Datalink connection - there's only one spot. One or the other, and more than likely the tachometer doesn't even have the right connection to plug directly into the Datalink port. You'll have to splice into the wire to connect the tach, while the gear indicator is plug and play. I don't see why you can't have both with that set up...

Absolutely correct...I can get the tach signal from negative terminal/wire on one of the coils.

Nice, I'd love to see it when you're done! Wasn't sure if your tach was also the plug and play kind but if you're splicing it, it should work great!

Yup exactly that. I've been wanting to get the tach but I'm afraid of splicing into wires...if you can, please upload some pics of the install when you do it 🙂

I'll post pictures of the accessories as I get them installed.


Also have a Memphis Shades Big Shot windshield in gradient black and no-tool trigger lock mount kit coming. I plan to use the windshield only on big mile rides.

Looking forward to pics of the Mustang seat. Personally I'm not a fan of the Corbin Gunfighter at all.
