And for all you fair weather bikers who don't like the cold wet miserable winter weather.....................
And I thought i'd lost the plot........and if he'd ever riddena bike with tassels, he'd know the unique bond that me and Pete feel when we're riding in the wind, in our open faced lids, chrome glistening in the California sun... flares flapping and 'taches pushed back around our ears...
waitaminute... wrong forum, right?
Oi! It's supposed to be our little secret :redface:...and if he'd ever riddena bike with tassels, he'd know the unique bond that me and Pete feel when we're riding in the wind, in our open faced lids, chrome glistening in the California sun... flares flapping and 'taches pushed back around our ears...

So let me get this straight - You've definitely abandoned interest in the discussion, and are just sticking with the random personal insults then? :dozey:There's nothing there worth replying to. Except...for the above. Could you possibly empathise and see what a hand wringing, mealy mouthed male punta you make yourself sound? Hundreds of thoudsands? Seriously, Its fucking embarrassing. I mean, would you say that kind of shit out loud? If the answers yes then let me tell you, your mates aren't your mates. They're people who abide you and speak of you in piss taking ways when your thankfully not around. "It could be worse, I could be like Stoo." And then they laugh. Hard.
No worries fella - crossed wires I guess. :redface:Bit of a misunderstanding this, i did answer stooo,s post thinking he was talking about a gear indicator, my mistake. But there,s no need to go on about it like you are stoo.
If you have ridden a bike with a gear indicator you would probably understand what i,m on about.
Now that wasn't so hard was it stoo See, you don't have to reply like a complete twat all the time, you can be friendly, humble and conciliatory. Keep it up, it might make a better person of you. Sorry the personal insults struck a nerve but you got to be cruel to be kind sometimesSo let me get this straight - You've definitely abandoned interest in the discussion, and are just sticking with the random personal insults then? :dozey:

Never tried a gear indicator... but then never really had owt with so much suplus grunt that it wasn't pretty obvious which gear you needed to be in anyway.
Strangely enough, the new speedo I've fitted to the 250 has a rev counter on it. Not got round to wiring it up yet though..... Maybe I should

Keep smiling buddy
Terry! Congratulations on getting it plumbed in and working. I posted pictures of mine mounted but not wired in - Unfortunately the bike was half-inched before I got to finish the job.I have this
Lets hope the 08 950sm has a rev counter
Hey saw this on ebay. Some guy removed it from his 950SM to fit a 2007 superduke guage cluster with rev counter.
Me, I'd rather just watch the sky, (er I mean road ahead of course).
You're having a laugh Talk about coming full circleI've heard of people fitting the SD dash to 950sm.
you are a STAR!!!! finally i found what i was lloking for! many thanks. I ll think for my 640 sm, they should have the same display/space with 950The tach is made by Nova MMB in Germany
also supplied by
Louis - Motorrad & Freizeit - Europas Nr.1 für Motorradbekleidung, Motorradhelme und Motorradzubehör.
search for Drehzahlmesser, German for tacho.
The tacho has lots of options for face/surround/LED colour etc. but I used the the 48 mm 0-12,000 rpm variant.
For power the tacho has seperate connections available for tacho power and for the LED illumination. I wired these two together to ACC2 which is the accessory circuit on the 950SM wired to the ignition, buried in the loom in the headlamp mask.
Sensing is via a pin in the bikes ECU, which is located underneath the tank, in the frame fold just behind the headstock that is normally screened by 2 pieces of black plastic. You'll need to solder a female pin onto the end of the sensing cable and insert it into the ECU connector to make the connection.
Space wise the area in the headlight mask behind where I've mounted mine is quite busy. You have to trim down the bolt and nut that hold on the rhs indicator, and reposition a bracket that holds a few pieces of wiring loom. Nothing too tricky but time consuming.
The hole in the dash was cut with a tank cutter like this

below the size of the tach, then taken out with a dremel until the tacho was a tight fit. Then I hot glued it in.
It's also a four year old thread which has just be rejuvenated by someone finding what they were after!not really fussed about why you want a tacho, and even less interested in hearing everyone's arguments about why it's not necessary... Please. If you want one, you do! Simple!
I am interested, although it's not a mod which is specifically needed, I quite like it. So far I've found the same as you - not great solutions and/or products no longer sold. I'll check out the link you posted up when I have time to register on KTM Talk later this evening. But if you wouldn't mind posting a picture of your solution, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks Paul!If anyone's interested I'll get off my arse and go take a piccy of the finished solution to post.
