    Tiny Tach?

    I have tried searching and have had no luck. I just received my tiny tach and I have a couple of questions. Where is everyone getting power from for the tach and which plug wire and where is the best location for the tach signal? Thanks for the help fellas. Ryan

    Are you wrapping the tach signal wire around the sparkplug boot? Or just behind it?

    On the Original TT, Wrap the induction/pickup wire just behind the boot. Make sure the surface is clean and free of any residue or oil. Wrap it 5-6 times.

    I've never owned a commercial, so maybe someone can chime in on where they got 12V power from. I think I remember someone saying they tapped into one of the instrument cluster wires that had 12V only when the ski was running.

    I dont' know the details, so hopefully someone can chime in on it.

    I will also dig and see what I can find......


    OH !!! Get with RXPKILLER !!! He has a TT commercial

    I ran a power and ground wire back to the battery for power. It was a little more time consuming but it guarantees I won't be messing up some other electronics on the ski.

    I had a few issues with my tach signal as well, so I called tinytach directly. They told me to leave the “white” ground wire unhooked and to wrap the signal wire twice around all 3 sparkplug wires. I followed those directions and haven’t had a single problem since.

    I just recently rapped my wire around front cyl spark plug wire but all the way back at the box. Im not sure if it makes any difference since I have been doing some mods and I havent compared yet. Today or tomorrow I will check to see if it is the same.


    Yea on the 12v source I think I would just hook it up directly to the battery. Better to be safe and always working than sorry and broke.
