Yes autometer has one that will work, I used one for awhile. costs more and fell apart! the stewart warner is very simple to hook up. three wires, key hot. ground and tach to neg. side of coil.

Would I wire the tach to my ignition tach wire or go to the coil? For $65 I think I will give it a go.

I have used both the tach wire on my dyna 2000p and the neg side of the coil works fine either way.

Hey Dave , any idea if I could wire up a Stewart warner tach shift light on my 2016 iron ? Any chance you or anyone would be able to show a step by step somehow? I’ve never really wired anything more than a new headlight bulb . Thanks
