I would like to permanently attach a tach to my Rebel. I have reviewed a whole bunch of post and I am stumped on where to connect it. A picture of an exact location or of how and where someone connected it would be great, but I never found one.
I read one forum with a Vague mention of the Bu/Y wire and a wiring diagram that looks like it comes off the ignition control Module. and just to be sure I am attaching my first pic. Is that the ignition control module? the second is the wiring Diagram and I circled the only Bu/y wire I could find and it just does not look right to me seeing it in the Diagram
I have also read some threads that said they attached it to one of the coils. I am attaching another picture of the same Diagram and I am wondering would you get into them before or after they split?
Then the Third Option someone said they just attached to the yellow one....there are three.... they go thru a plug before going to what I believe is the ignition control module.
I really do try and find the answers looking through years of past threads but I end up with more questions and hoping for a photo. I have a picture of the yellow wires before and after the plug if anyone would like to see those.
thank you SoakedKarma I can really mess things up when I want to. so the Blue yellow wire (When I find it) coming off my ignition control Module (Also when I find it) that is where I want to wire in my tach?
So here I am installing the tach.
Green wire on tach is going to blue yellow wire
yellow wire to headlight
red wire 12V+
Black wire 12V-
2nd black wire to ground...???
tried some interesting ways to mount the tach and did not like any of them. first picture is of where it wont go. 2d picture is what i am currently printing, it will be the back side of speedometer housing with Tach attached.
Cant believe i got it in the very first try. her it is installed just need to tighten it up. I have wiring on order from Amazon but I have pulled the blue yellow wire out of the plug I am going to strip it carefully without removing the end solder in the Tac and then heat shrink it. so it looks good.
my last printing for the seat went through about 6 printings before i was happy. Days and days of printing. I was ecstatic when this fit so well on the first try. going to do some lit sanding to it but that is about it.
