TACHOMETER QUESTION

Post by hondac200 »

I have two 1979 CBX tachometers, one says "x1000 rpm" at the bottom and the other says "x 1000 min-1" I assume North American bikes had x1000rpm graduation but where were the x1000min-1 tachs used? See my picture.

Hi,

The "min-1" tachos were original fitment in Europe (and maybe elsewhere).

Tachos for the Z went up to 11K, later models (just prolink?) were 10K.

There is a variety of tachs out there that looks the same and they were used on different bikes. The CB900Fs and 81 and 82 CB1100Rs had the same tach.
To be understood is the exception
