UNDER THE HANDLEBAR MOUNTING A: Can the Tach be mounted inverted under the handlebars? A: Yes, if you have enough room to mount under the handlebars for the tach to mount and still be able to turn from lock to lock without hitting the tank or dash. See note in next paragraph for details on how to rotate the face of the Tach for appropriate positioning. BE AWARE: Chances of water intrusion are increased in this position! FACE ROTATION Q: How do I rotate the face of the Tach? A: With the Tach housing removed from the handlebar, unscrew the bezel (counterclockwise) and remove it from the housing, using a 5/32 Allen wrench loosen the the set-screw located inside the clamp area or at the rear of the clamp area. Rotate the face of the Tach to your preferred position, tighten the set screw and replace the bezel. COIL IDENTIFICATION Q: How can I tell positive from negative on my coil? A: Most motorcycles will have two wires going to each of the coils, and each coil will share one common-color wire and have one unique color wire. The common-color is the positive and the unique color is the negative. For example, a Yamaha set-up has a red/black on both coils – that is positive. The other coil wire would be orange or gray – that is the negative side. Hondas set-up is blue/yellow and yellow/blue for the negative, and black/white for the positive. Suzuki has orange/white on both coils as positive and has white or black/yellow as the negative side. COIL SELECION Q: My bike has two (or four) coils – Which one/ones do I use? A: Most multi-cylinder bikes have one coil per cylinder. You only need to connect to one of the coils – choose the one most convenient for wire routing. (Single-fire motorcycles require the Tach adapter we include with each assemble

Some models like Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki Vulcan FI models, Suzuki FI models, Honda VTX 1800 and others may require the included Tach Adapter. See separate instructions for installation of the adaptor. Wiring instructions for 7-Color LED Tachs Wire Baron’s Tach to one of your motorcycle’s ignition coils via the following schematic: • Green wire of tach to NEGATIVE terminal of coil (see FAQ to determine your bike’s negative side) • Black wire of tach to CHASSIS (Ground) • Red wire to of tach to POSITIVE terminal of coil (or other switched 12 volt source) • Red wire from control box to POSITIVE terminal of coil (or other switched 12 volt source) • Black wire from control box to CHASSIS (ground) • Control box plugs into tach with the 4-way connector • Button plugs into the control box. Button can be mounted on handlebar or any other convenient place Wiring instructions for White- or Black-Face Tachs Wire Baron’s Tach to one of your motorcycle’s ignition coils via the following schematic: • Green wire to NEGATIVE terminal of coil (see FAQ to determine your bike’s negative side) • Black wire to CHASSIS (Ground) • Red wire to POSITIVE terminal of coil (or other switched 12 volt source) • Blue wire to POSITIVE terminal of coil (or other switched 12 volt source) General mounting instructions (1) Mount new Baron Tach on handlebar in your preferred position. Ideal location is between handlebar risers. If mounted off- center, you can rotate tach face back to vertical (or any position you desire) by first loosening tach unit’s set screw (found either in handlebar area of housing or underside of housing, depending on tach style), then unscrewing tach housing’s bezel, rotating tach, re-installing bezel and retightening set screw. Secure handlebar clamp by first tightening the rear, flat side of clamp all the way down, then tighten tapered front side of clamp until tach does not rotate. There should be a small gap on the pointed side and no gap on the flat side when the clamp is correctly tightened. (2) Route tach’s wire harness lead to coil as necessary for simplest and cleanest installation. Feed tach harness alongside bike’s wiring harness (passing behind any plastic frame covers), then downward toward coil. (3) Make your wire connections as recommended above. Use the spade and piggyback connectors

Turn ignition off and disconnect Battery. 2. Determine a mounting position. Each motorcycle is unique and the microTach+TM tachometer is small enough to be placed in many different locations to provide an attractive appearance and vital engine status. Possible locations are: a. Front Brake Reservoir b. Top handle bar clamp Brake Reservior Mount Figure 2: Top Clamp Mount
3. Locate the 3 coil signals from the Electronic Ignition system and the coil in the wiring harness. It is easiest just to trace the signal back from the coil to an acceptable location to splice into the signal. The tach adapter must not be placed too close to the engine and wires should be protected with heat resistant tubing. Please consult your service manual to ensure proper signal location for your motorcycle. 4. Splice into the Left and Right coil signals (-) and connect to the Brown and Orange wires from Speedway Instruments tach adapter. Do not splice into the common (+) signal. See Figure 3. 5. Now locate a Ground wire and an +12V power signal either from the accessory fuse or instruments fuse near a location that the 3 remaining tach adapter wires can be routed. Please consult the proper service manual for your motorcycle to determine location and color code. 6. Once the tach signal wire is located plan out a routing path from the microTach+TM tachometer to the tach adapter and power and ground signals. Use the black tubing to protect wires and allow them to blend in well with other wires. 7. Remove red plastic from back of the microTach+TM tachometer adhesive tape and mount the microTach+ TM tachometer in place. Take extra care to ensure alignment and fitment before attaching. The adhesive tape is strong and will only stick once. If you mess up, don’t worry, the tape can be removed and you can buy replacement tape at your local hardware store. Just remember to get exterior industrial grade tape.
