Tacho and Gear Indicator for Street 750 anyone ?

I am thinking of installing a Tacho and a Gear Indicator on my Street 750. Also, this bike does not have the hazard lights (all four indicators flashing at the same time) feature -- I think it is a good safety feature to have, especially if you are riding after dark or if it is raining/foggy. The dealer in Pune, India says they need more time to figure out a way to do this for me without voiding the warrantee. Any ideas ?

Dont know any bikes having hazard indicators. as for the gear indicator, why would you need that? you only need the neutral light. what i would like is an engine RPM meter.

Check the thread on salty street. I order one that he got. Just monitors the EMF pulse from the plug wire. Looks nice to me.

I will work on hazards. Should be able to make a kit easy enough.

I ordered that same digital tach. Wasn't $60.00 though. $74.95 comes to mind. Kinda pricey for a plastic box with an integrated circuit chip.

Lead, follow, or get out of the way !

That's what I was thinking, that it would be excessive. IMO, not needed.

I don't think that a gear indicator is really necessary on a motorcycle like the Street. You should be able to feel when to shift. The RPM meter would probably be a great addition though. That seems like something that is usually standard.

$74.95 is still reasonable I guess at least its not $100.

Hazards is actually a great idea. Shift light indicator just depends on rider whatever they are confortable with.

Ride Your Ride and Stay Alive.

I also own a 2004 Suzuki Savage/S40 Boulevard LS650P and it has a switch for Hazards on the throttle side. It also has 1 inch buck horn handle bars too.

Never knew this either, i'm sort of a newb in the bike world and would like to know how common that is....so far from what i'm guessing it seems to be something uncommon.

Harley rarely includes a tach as standard equipment on their motorcycles deeming them basically unnecessary. The vast majority of riders rarely get even close to redline before shifting. It is a nice feature (the dual tach/speedo came on my XL50 stock) but not all that necessary. You can feel when you're lugging the engine and virtually never approach redline before you know it's time to shift.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.
