Most aftermarket tachs just need a signal from your coil. I'm using an autometer in my car, but i also do not have the factory cluster in at all :mrgreen:

Thanks Ray, do you know what kind of aftermarket speedometer can be use on the XR? I want to see if I can make a whole custom made cluster. Thanks again.
:cheers :cheers

Well, a cable driven speedometer with the right pin size... I elected to not put a speedometer in my car when i put together my cluster as it's not street driven.

I am actually not certain what size pin input we need - i'm sure someone can verify. It's the clip on square, not threaded... There are a bunch of options...
