Where did you buy it from ... if ebay or amazon then look at the page you got it from to see if its duel fire.   

The Green one goes to negative side of coil on the right side of the bike.   Your mechanic must normally work on Harleys I think.  

Click here for some reading

Here is something that lists yellow ...

directions for my drag specialities tach are: 

black = ground

green = negative terminal on coil

yellow wire = lamp on

red wire = ignition on (12 v)

twist red and yellow wires together and connect to B+ terminal on the coil

hope this helps.

note: i would assume that your blue wire would be my yellow wire

Well the back side of your 1st picture looked like what I had but after seeing the front of it ... not even close.

I am giving you a link here ... order at your own risk because its not the same place I ordered from nor can I find the same link ... I ordered mine back in 2006.

The one here looks the same as mine and it states its a duel fire for Sportster or Big Twin which was listed plus other bikes at the time I ordered mine and price I paid back then was 49 or so ... close to this price.

I have a good part of the weekend to check this out

I'll keep you posted

Thanks Guys.

P.S.

Is there a way I could make a Y cable in order to have a reading on both coils or is there a danger of backfire and fire hazard ?

Pretty sure the coil on the left side has something to do with the rev limiter ... and will give ya some weard readings so that is why its recommended to use the coil on the brake side.   Plus I would think if you used a y connector it would do nothing but mess your engine up and lastly .... why would you want to.

I used the coil on the left. The limiter is in the ECU or Dyna if you have one.

Hey Donn,

this may sound ridiculous but what`s the difference between DC 12V and DV 12V ??

I've been searching for DV Voltage and I can't find it anywhere

Thanks

Just found this after browsing for more Tacho on Amazon,

I need your advice on this one,

I think it`s the same as I bought, BTW the seller refunded Me after I put Amazon on the case since I was not getting any answers on his part.

The Wiring seems correct but I would need a second opinion as I don`t really know the how to.

Thanks gain
