Small digits
This is my third one of these. I got this one to replace the one I pulled the wire out of lol. I wished RMATV would give you a size for the digits on all these type units. The $24 one is larger and enough to make a difference. But I do not want to spend $8 to mail it back and then pay $7 for shipping the larger one.

Does what it says!
Does not come with a mount, and there isn't that many great places to mount one. I purchased a mount but decided not to use it, 3M dual sided tape worked just fine, and has for the last 38 hrs, has been pressure washed and never came off.

Good price and good functionality. For example, it shows the hours. But while it’s running, it shows the RPMs. That is very useful. I only wrapped it around the spark plug four times because the Husky FE350 2018 has a very wide spark plug cap that is also very short, yet it’s working just fine.
Mounted next to the battery under the seat.
Barely 5 windings around the spark plug cap but it’s working just fine. Note the zip tie holding it.

Does this tach show rpms in real time or only max rpm of the ride? The video seemed to say it shows you you're max rpm for your ride. I'd like to use it more as a tool to set rpms and tune carbs using the idle drop method.
Thanks!
Elliott V on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it shows the current rpm, but it's delayed by 1-2 seconds
Does this have a back light. Can it be easily read in full sunshine and in the dark ?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: it does not. cant say what it would look like in full sunlight as i have my mounted on the side of my frame near the radiator. and oly check it when i do main. in the garage. good quality. better than my moose
can you cut some of the black wire off if its way to long?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that should not affect anything.

I had about 3in extra, but I just zip tied it back to the main wire incase I want to change something later.
Does the display always remain on?
Ernest P on Dec 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but these things generally last forever. I have one that is 5 years old and is still on.
will this work on 2009 Kawasaki brute force 750 v*twin atv ?
Frederick D on Sep 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should, you just have to select the correct mode for your machine.. I am using it on a single cylinder so I can not verify.
Instructions offer the following options for the 3 modes to choose from..
1P1r 1 pulse one revolution
1P2r 1 Pulse two revolutions
2P1r 2 Pulses one revolution
Will this work on a yz250f with coil on plug since there is now “plug wire”???
Shaun P on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think it should. I would just wrap the wire over the cap that plugs onto the spark plug.
Can the battery be changed if it goes dead, or do you just get another hour meter and start over?
DERRICK M on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Has 4-6 yr battery life. Non replacable.
Can you change the default recommended hours for Oil, Air and Valve Service Intervals?
Jeff H on Apr 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not that I'm aware of with this model, it just keeps track of run hours.
Is a four stroke 1 pulse per 2 revolutions?
Randy H on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My Honda crf250x used the 1 to 1. Idles at 1700-1800 RPM. When you toggle to the other settings you will see some crazy numbers. Like 3600 RPM idle. Easy to tell which one is correct.
Work on direct ignition?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: One I bought was for Honda 450rx and connected to plug boot
How long is the wire? This should be stated in the product specs.
A shopper on Jan 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Im not exactly sure, but I was able to wrap the wire around the plug 5 times and have enough to mount the meter near the head tube. There was so much wire left I had to cut it.
dose this tach work on two cylinder quad?
Frederick D on Sep 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As an hour meter for maintenance, it should definitely work. The rpm recording might get screwed up being a two cylinder, but I think if you wrap it around only one of the spark plug wires it should work fine for that as well.
Can the hours be reset to zero?
BRIAN T on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The maintenance hours can be reset but the total run hours can’t.
