    How good is the OE tach?

    Installing some mods these days, and just wondering how accurate is the OE tachometer? According to mine I'm topping out at about 6700 to 6800. From what I've read on here thats a bit low, but is the OE gauge reliable anyway? Very hard to read, especially while going all out.

    You pretty much described the accuracy and quality of the stock tach. there are several aftermarket tachs out there and read in numeric display witch is a lot easier and accurate.

    Buy a tiny tach if on a budget, pet tach if you want quality and correctness.

    nothing wrong with the commercial Tiny Tach for those budget minded. Ran them without any issues and did just fine...
    with average mods and dialing in an impeller it`s fine, have a super dooper 2 stroke on the edge and need to know every rpm, then upgrade...
