Which color tachometer?
Trying not to start a new thread. If I'm going to install a tach, I don't want to look back later and go, I should have …
I think if I got an 8,000 rpm tach, I think I would regret it. Because there are going to be times that I'm going to run over 8,000 rpm. I can't make up my mind if the redline is 8,600, 8,650 or 9,300 rpm. I think I saw a CB250 gauge who's redline was at 9,300. Regardless, there will be instances where I may run over 8,000 rpm for sustained periods of time. 74 mph should be just crossing into the 8,000+ rpm range. Plus there are times running through the gears that may exceed 8,000 rpm as well.
So I found these couple 10,000 rpm tachs that work for motorcycles (2 cylinders). Aside from the fact that they're not inexpensive, which would you guys prefer? The black face / white letter would better match our speedo. But it's black body would stand out. I'm thinking I would choose the chrome body so it wouldn't standout, and a white background versus black background of the speedo, might look kind of "sporty" sitting near each other.
I don't care about the shift light., but this is the best looking 10,000 rpm "motorcycle" tach I have found.
