Thanks to all who replied. I have 2 tachs, one was on my bike when it was wrecked (it needed the glass replaced), the other came from a sportster (redline marked at 6200). The redline on the one from my bike was marked at 5500. I bought my bike after someone "fixed" (and I use that term VERY loosely) it, so I don't know for certain that the tach that came with it is original. I managed to replace the glass and am trying to decide which tach I want to keep and which I should get rid of. The "original" matches the speedometer, the one from the sportster looks real close, but not identical. The "decision" comes into play in that I want to do an ignition swap and possibly cams within the next year. If I do that the sporty would be marked to what the redline is, while the stock one won't. Not that it's any big deal. I just thought I'd explain why I asked the question.
Thanks again.

Well I must be at 6200rpm then with my Stage 1 but damn if I know where that's at without a tach. :crying:
With your '06 Dyna, you should be right about here at 6200 rpm.
1st 47.5
2nd 68.5
3rd 92.0
4th 113.8
5th 135.2

This, I'd like to see.

In 5th and 6th gear, redline is also quite often known as "brown-streak"!

That you won't need a tach for.

Holy crap...talk about winding it out!!!

I suppose if I ever decide to wind it out on a regular basis then I'll get a tach so I can see where I'm at...I'd rather see a needle than try to remember numbers. But I pretty much just bought the bike for easy cruising, if I want to go high rpm and hear an engine roar I'll get in the Cobra and stomp down 7000 rpm with 11 lbs of boost. :banana:

Thanks for posting the numbers and/or doing the math...I'll keep those in mind.
