Anyone put a tach on a RK custom just behind the chrome wind deflector where the handle bars mount? I'm thought about replacing the std speedo with a speedo/tach but was thinking of something like the Dakota Digital tach.

I wanted to add a tach when I bought my FLHRS, but they couldnt because of the small wind deflector. The service guy did say one would go on if they removed the deflector, but at that time I wasnt sure I wanted to remove anything.

now... 2k miles later... this winter the deflector is coming off and a nice tach will be installed.

btw. I replaced my spedo w/ one of the brushed silver faced ones and its a HUGE eye catcher on the bike. I cant wait to get a matching tach. I was thinking of going with the tach / speedo combo, but didnt like the idea of having to look down to see your RPM's. to me the bars is a much better location.

good luck. I can post some pics of the new speedo if you like.

D,

I was thinking of doing the same thing. So, removing the nacelle doesn't take away too much of the RK custom appearance?

I've thought about it and thought about it, and i dont think it will. That dang deflector just shoots air right into my face as it is. and when I decide to ride with my windshield its really a PITA.

I say we flip a coin and see whos bike will be the guinea pig hahahah

I know when I hit the rev limiter, it's time to shift. But, I think if I added a tach I'd replace the speedo with the speedo/tach combo.
