Default Upgrade to EX Cluster w/tach or get seperate Tach?

i know an 96-00 EX cluster is going to cost $50ish so what do good tachs go for. i guess it would be better to get a seperate tach since it should be more accurate. what is a good brand or model to look for?

5" tachs are not rice. If your using them for their inteded purpose to actually monitor the motor and dial in shift point more accurately. Also the tach should be mounted WHERE YOU CAN SEE IT. Not some custom hidden thing.


call me a ricer but I mount my gauges in my line of sight where they should be so I can see what my motor is doing. An oil pressure gauge is no good if its mounted in the glove box and you have to take your eyes off the road to look at it


A 5" tach that changes color with rpm's is rice. Autometer is the farthest thing from rice
