Hello,

Reading through some other threads, it appears a pod mounted rev counter on the steering housing is a popular placement.

As such, is there an accepted diameter of the unit ?? I presume, it's a balance between being able to see the reading clearly and not having to crane your neck to see past it !!

I guess something between 60mm to 100mm.

Many thanks.

Richard.

I went with this set up, (I've seen a lot of rally set ups with a large jubilee clamp around the whole thing) so no pod mount needed
skunky!!

Hello Alex,

Many thanks for your reply, yes I'd certainly be interested to know more about it. If the system works, do you want to drop me an email ??

Regards.

Hello,

I'm pleased to report that I have managed to pick-up an 80mm pod mounted TIM rev counter which was advertised as not working. With a bit work, it s now functioning & reading correctly.

A historic thread on this forum also flagged up the correct wiring connections for the 4x wires. As proved yet again, the benefit of the forum is priceless.

Many thanks.

Richard.
