Buy a 12v tachometer and run the tach wire which usually goes to the negative side of coil. I just tapped into the coil wire up front under hood at ECU. Tap into the solid orange wire on 2017 wolvy...check wiring diagram for your year.

Do you have a recommendation for the make/model?

Correction on coil wire color at ECU, it's an orange wire with small green stripes and it's on the bottom plug of ECU. You'll need to remove the 10mm bolt holding ECU in place to gain access to the wire..can't miss it. Disconnect battery prior to tapping into wire to avoid any possible electrical damage.

So has the waterproofed non-waterproof gauge held up?

My concern is the waterproof design. I keep them in the garage and am not a big mud fan but when i wash them off, they get very well washed. Plus why not get one that can handle it all. I'm looking at gauges built for boats right now but they tend to look booooooring....

My non waterproof gauge has done just fine with the silicone boot on back and lots of dielectric grease at all exposed connections!!!

I agree with Tinken on this. There is no isolation or protection from damaging the ECU if you direct wire like that. A pickup coil on the ignition wire would indeed be a safer method.

I have a 2019 x2 and would like to install a tachometer. Has anyone done so on a x2 (or x4)? What kind did you install and where does it connect to pick up the tack signal on the 847 cc engine?
