    Copy of PET 2100 Tachometer manual?

    Anybody have a link to the PET 2100 DX Tachometer manual? Or have a manual that they'd be willing to scan?

    Spent an hour looking for one online. No dice. Can't even find who imports 'em in the USA to beg them!

    Also, can anyone confirm or deny that the 2100 is waterproof?

    Here is the link...http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=15426

    The 2100dx is not waterproof. The front cover is glued to the casing. We use silicone or crazy glue to seal around the cover. Also, on the back. Under the sticker are 2 small holes that expose the circuit board. I seal over the sticker as well.

    The pet 2500's are waterproof, but they run $350

    Ahhh, you bought the one on ebay. I was watching that too. I didnt need another one, but i like a good steal. You got an ok price. Looking at the pic in the auction. It doesnt have the factory wire and alligator clip.

    You dont need it. I dont use it because i needed longer wire. We hook ours up by wrapping the wire around each spark plug wire 3x, about 1" from where it connects to the electrical box. I put small wire ties on each side of the wrap to keep it from moving.

    That is how we do it on the yamahas. I imagine its the same on any 2-stroke ski.

    If for some reason you need new wire to work for your ski(i.e:to short to reach dash) I use 10 guage wire(black) from walmart. it's in the automotive section near the fuses. $3 a spool, fits perfect.

    Wow, thanks for the link! Just what I was looking for.

    So sealing the cover and those holes in the back make it essentially "weathertight"? I don't plan on submerging it, but I will be using it on standups, so it'll get wet occasionally... Especially the way I ride! (below pic is my trick called the Flying Faceplant)

    I bought that PET because I killed my second TinyTach commercial, even after weatherproofing it. And that unit doesn't transfer from ski to ski easily. (uses external power supply)

    Yes, pretty much. My first 2100 got moisture intrusion and crapped even with the front cover sealed. Thats how i found the holes on the back. With my new one its gone 2 summers now on ski with no problems. I keep it on the ski all the time unless i have to flip ski over to get trash out of intake.

    The read out unit itself is easily removeable. the wire is not hardwired in. The wire runs up through one hole and you make a hook and run it back down through the other. takes 5 seconds to remove.

    It has a built in battery that turns itself on when it feel the pulses. When ski is turned off. The unit will turn itself off about 30 seconds later.

    Ha! You're right, I shoulda called that the "Flying A$$plant"; it may or may not have been the cause of this pic below. I don't know what caused that, I wadded off the jetski, endoed a dirtbike, and fell 12' off a ladder while pressure-washing my barn, all in the same day. Never did figure out what caused the injury....
