Has anyone added one yet? It's my biggest gripe to date....if you are riding with a louder motorcycle it's hard to tell where you're at. (Or if you live in Oregon and they actually HAND OUT ear plugs with your license.) I'd like to add one...ideas?

I've looked into it a while ago...
Getting one that will match and wire up is not the problem, getting a bracket that will not look all Frank N.Stein seems to be more of a challenge for me off hand.

But with 3D printing or someone who likes making stuff that might not be a problem.

I've searched the web and found some tach's for about $150 up to $550.

Hope this helps.

That would be really nice! For the first time in 60 years of riding I am without ear plugs because I could not hear the engine at a stop if it died or? Any new information would be more than welcome....
Stay well

I managed to fit a digital speedo and tach to my Van Van.
It was a generic one with a single line to the ignition coil fro Lazada.com cost about $15 USD only

Although most Tach instructions say to wire the tach to the -ve of the coil, this one I had to splice to the positive of the coil (that or my coil is put in wrong way round which well could be the case)
It works well and had no issues on my maiden 200km ride yesterday.

To mount it was a bit of a challenge as I had to bend the mounting arm with a clamp and a hammer. It required some careful planning and marking to get it almost right.
You can see a slight 5' angle to the 90' but I am saying it's deliberate to align it with your sight hahah

I bought a Kosco digital tach online for $50. Two wires, one to ground, one wraps around spark wire. It's small, and mounted with double side tape on the triple clamp.
