I've used both companies several times with great success. You get exactly what you need at the right price.

Just remember that it is a wear item and like the tach drive, you need to periodically take the cable out and check it and lube it up.

I had a 77" lock full throttle in 2nd gear in a winding country road. Talk about a handful! I finally was able to stick a leg over the S&S air horn and kill it that way. Never wanted that to happen again. I really like the clean set up shown on this Bendix. It has one way to go: off
