    Question about hour meter install

    I have a 06 sportster(155hp 4 tec) and installed a Briggs&Stratton digital
    display Maintenance minder per instuctions....one wire wraps 4 times around plug wire and the other to ground.I ran the boat about 1hr but the meter shows 0.3hrs ?Is this because it is a 3 cyl engine and I need to multiply reading by 3? Is this meter for single cyl. only? below is the info on product....Thank if you can help.

    Engine Applications
    The MAINTENANCE MINDER can be used on any lawn mower type engines. The only limitation is the spark firing frequency must be greater than or equal to 10Hz. As most engines are operating at 20 or 40 spark firings per second, compatibility is not a problem. Easy Hookup

    It sure sounds like it's for a single cylinder engine... Ron

    Absolutely.... those are cylinder specific! Put that on your lawn mower & hook up a hour meter on the boat

    Tiny tach's work well... but there battery operated & wont last forever. I would buy a marine 2" mechanical meter & install in the motor compartment

    I see it all the time !! Actually I have over a hundred on my 06, about 35 on my 07, and 32 on my 08 T-X. I am just wondering if OTHER people do this.

    Dealers with the B.U.D.S. s.w. may have the ability to adjust the hours if needed after replacing the MPEM unit (or whatever it's called now). But its not just as simple a disconnecting a wire
