    Some would suggest that if you need a tacho, you're not riding it the
    way its intended.

    Some might. :)

    But I would say it's a V-Twin high revving motor, and I want to see
    the numbers - sometimes.

    Hyosung styling? Isn't that an oxymoron?

    I would say I'm a damnably handsome fellow!

  10. Not sure if you've seen these. May not blend in the way you aspire but it's
    available and cheap.

    Allow another $100 or 1 hour if you want the dealer to fit it. The
    instructions seem basic and the job simple if you're mechanically adept. If
    you're not pay the dealer.

    If you have any electrical problems after you fit it yourself your friendly
    Dealer will have an "out" to try re any warrantee claim. He wont be
    guaranteed success in refusing your claim but it may be a hassle for you in
    the very least.

    If your not confident, though it seems simple enough to fit, pay the man if
    only for piece of mind.


    Oh and re "if you need a tacho your not riding the bike properly" I've got
    two Harleys that both have a tacho as standard equipment plus a Diesel van
    with one. None of em need em but I like to have em anyway.

    The Hyosung is veritably dripping with styling. I can't help it if
    you can't see it. Get your eyes checked. ;-)

    My bike has a tacho. Can't remember the last time I looked at it. I
    mounted the GPS in front of it (most convenient location) and discovered
    I didn't need the tacho.

    Well, that's it then. If Moike and Nev reckon you don't need a tacho,
    then you don't need a tacho and anyone who wants one is a wanker.

    Theres always this:

    Its a wireless head up display that clips on to your helmet.
    No need to spoil the cruiser look of your bike at all!

    Will a tacho help you ride like this?

    How about these then...



    I think you wanting a tacho has nothing to do with you being perceived
    as a wanker!

    Hi Gerry.

    Back in the days I had the 750 Suzi cruiser, I fitted a nice, fairly
    small, chromed rev counter to it.

    I got the counter from the Harley end of MCA in P'matta.

    If you happened to be in the Granville area, it would be worth asking
    them there.

    It was fairly easy to fit.

    I would agree that for a cruiser V-Twin it is high revving, after all
    it's basically the same motor as the other 650 V-Twin Hyosungs rather
    than a cruiser specific design.

    Thanks Cam. That's the sort of helpful info I was fishing for. I'll
    take a ride down the mountain and into the Big Smog and check it out.
