PET 2100 wire lead seems too short...
I just got my PET 2100DX and the pickup wire lead seems really short, not long enough to run from the electric box up to where I want to mount it by the handle bars or dash. Anyone else have this problem? The lead seems to only be around 3-4 feet long, brand new from Island Racing...

Yes, I had the same problem. It's original intention was to go from the plug wires (near the plugs) to the tach, not all the way back to the box. I first installed it this way. I just clipped it around the plug wire right near the plug. Readings seemed to be all over the place. I went to Radio Shack and got some stranded wire, ran it all the way back to the box, and wrapped it 3 wraps around all three wires and it seems to give perfectly stable readings. (at least on the trailer, still need to water test)

Mine was too short too. Did the same as Art.

Mine is attached, by included clamp, right at #1 spark plug wire just before the boot. That was about the only place, with the wire provided, that I could connect and reach up to the dash. Mounted on the dash, brought the wire up thru the steering shaft and then thru the water drain hole right by the dash. It works great, have not had any problems since got the tach coded correctly.

yup, ditto, just replace that with a longer piece of wire.

Thanks for all the input, I tried just clipping it to the front cyl. by the plug, but rpm readings aren't right. I seems to only work clipped to #2 at the box. I'll get a longer wire and re solder the clip to the new wire...What guage wire is everyone using???

I think 18 gauge

Yeah, 18. I wanted to find some 16 with a little less insulation... but no luck!!! 18 was the biggest that would fit.
