I've always preferred to have a tachometer on my motorcycles. Anyone have a tach on their SC, or know of a source where we can acquire tachometers that are SCR friendly?

I've always liked this one they offer for the Bolt. Not certain that it would work on our SCRs, but most things from the Bolt are compatable.

I haven't installed one, but yeah it would be kinda cool to have one. I think there's a few different options out there for the Bolt. Me, I'd like to have an old school analog pair of gauges. I'd pay up for that.

If it were only that easy. I have a couple sets like this. And they would look so right on the SCR.

Unfortunately the SCR950 didn’t stay true to its “Sports Heritage” claim and adopted the cheap LCD display with confusing and distracting functions.

All I want to know is how fast the engine is turning, how fast the bike is going and the mileage.

The classic analog speedo/tacho pair tells you this at a glance. As far as I know only the SR400 still offers these mechanical cable-driven meters. No way to retrofit to the SCR.

Beautiful, the key location is much better too.
Right?!?? and having to reach down and then having to take the key out and lock a different lock is just silly. haha. Oh well..I didn't buy the bike for the key location I guess. BUT I do agree...good ol fashioned needles for speed and tach would be pretty great.

I'm gonna check out some of those Koso tachs. Looks like they may do the trick. Just got saddle bag brackets from Yam, and bought some closeout River Road Saddle bags from Dennis Kirk for like 70% off. Great deal for next to nothin'. Also now waiting for windshield. When I mount the windshield (it's a quick-release) then i will see how much space there is to mount say, that Koso tach. Right now in Michigan there is snow and ice (not to mention salt!) so probably will not be riding for a spell . . .

I agree. The SCR key is totally on the wrong side. Should've been on the lower left like the old classic enduros. Lol

Hey Big-X, glad to hear from a fellow Michigan SCR owner in this forum. Last time I rode mine was December 3rd, mid 40s. I'm on the south east side near Port Huron. I have yet to cross paths with another SCR, so if/when I do I'll be sure to give you a thumbs up. Lol

That would be sweet if you're a south paw. Speaking of keys, do we really need a locking gas cap?[/QUOTE]

Haha. Heck no. I thought that was kinda weird.

Gas theft is huge in other countries, hence the locking gas cap. Also people are assholes, and an annoyed neighbor might pour sugar or something in an untended gas tank. (I'm thinking of back when I lived in an apartment complex full of college kids)
