I was thinking more along the lines of a standard analog, needle tach.

So is there no simple aftermarket tach that can integrate with the g650x ignition systems?

I added the trail tech tach to my XMoto. Cost was $37, wrapped around the spark plug wire. Works fine... Engine cut off occurs at 7500 rpm, other tach speeds match up vs rpm according to speed vs rpm chart.

Would you happen to have a pic showing it mounted? Just wondering how big it is relative to the dash.

Thanks. Looks small and light enough I could just use Dual-loc or double sided tape to mount it.

The tach came with a sticky 3M products base. But it stuck to my old bike yoke. I'll pick up some sticky sided Velcro to replace the Velcro strip wraps.

I've been wondering if it would be hard to put something together with a couple of leds on it.
The trailtech tach looks ok, but a number changing on a tiny display doesn't seem as effective as a couple of coloured leds in ones peripheral line of sight.

Also, making your own opens up a lot of options as to how and where to incorporate it in the existing dash bracket.

Any thoughts?

I am looking for an alternative cockpit instrument for my G650X. The original Speedo is just to big for the planned Rally cockpit setup.

I looked at Acewell, Koso and Trailtech but they don't have a plug´n play adapter kit available which fits the G650X connectors.

Basically what I need is a Oil,Water,Fuel,Battery Voltage display. Speed and mileage is available on the Tripmaster/GPS.

Are you looking for actual readings or just idiot lights? For idiot lights you could use something like the touratech 01-030-0033-0 which has 7 LEDs. For gauge readings I think you would probably have to change the oil and temp sensors to match the gauge unit.

I have PDF of the wiring diagrams if you want to cut the harness apart. I once found the connector info but not sure I have it anymore for the 24 pin connector. You could make any adaptor to plug into the stock harness if you could find the mating connector.

Don't forget the turn signal flasher and hi-beam indicator are in the stock instrument housing if those are needed.

idiot lights like that would be fine. just some reference on the engine rpm and the redline would be fine.

what does that touratech led bar connect to?
