    Best tach/hourmeter

    I just bought a new superjet and am about to purchase a tach/hourmeter and want to get the best. On my dirtbike I have a works connection one and its awesome has a clock too, but not sure how it would hold up on a PWC and not sure how accurate the tach is. I see Blowsion sells the tiny tach and group k also recommends that one, was also looking at the TTO one. What one do you think is the best?

    Idk about the best but I have a TTO tach/ hour meter and it works just fine. I have not used it to tune anything yet though.

    Agreed on the Pulse Engine Tachometer, but you don't want the 2000 or 2100, you want the 2500. It's waterproof, the 2100 is not. Both are pretty hard to find, though; I had heard that the company's factory was destroyed in the Fukushima Tsunami incident.

    TinyTach was a waste of time/money for me, at least.

    This is a PET 2500:

    20$ one off eBay with green back light works great

    Re: SECOND Best tach/hourmeter ?

    delagem and others: Any suggestion for the SECOND Best tachometer/hourmeter?

    The reason I ask is that the only Pulse Engine Tachometer (PET) I can find online is the apparently non-waterproof 2001D for $225 on ebay.

    I am thinking of going Benflynn's route and getting this $24.99 one on ebay and cross-checking it with the tachometer on my (Innova 5568) automotive timing light.

    Re: Best tach/hourmeter

    If I were you, I'd try that $20 eBay model, while watching for a PET 2500. They do turn up from time to time, I got mine for about $100.

    Even their 2100 is good. Mine just managed to get water inside by riding in the dash of my SLX, which had a tendency to fill up during wet rides. This made it stick "on", running the battery dead. The 2100 doesn't have a replaceable battery. You can, however, change it. You'll have to lift the face plate, use a jeweler's screwdriver to split the unit open, break the spot welds, and then change the battery.

    I trash the TinyTach but my experience may not be typical. Because I was using it on a triple, I had to buy the TinyTach Pro, nearly as much as a typical used PET2100 at the time. I over-drove it by having too many wraps on my spark plug wire, so I had to stab into the battery area's gel with a scalpel to "reset" it (as advised by TinyTach's tech department). Water got inside, and stuck it on, killing the battery in a few weeks.

    Any tack that keeps the high rpm on memory ( or just on screen ) ?
