Default Tachometer Suggestions

I have a 1983 sportster that came with a bob tank apparently added at some point. I have a speedometer. I would like suggestions on a simple tachometer I can wire to the coil.

Anyone have any good experience doing this?

I haven't added a tach, just fussed about with the stock version, but installing one is pretty straightforward if you're comfortable doing some wiring. You'll need an electronic tach, NOT a mechanical one.

Here's a simple example from JP Cycles. Clamps to the handlebar and has four wires you need to hook uo. https://www.jpcycles.com/product/560...ini-tachometer
