Default Re: Tach for HT 2-strokes?

Range? Don't know but people that have tachs usually say that around 6000 rpm they start sounding bad but that is usually due to poor balancing. Some can go as high as 7000 but even though I don't have a tach I would guess I keep mine under 5500 rpm. With my tuned pipe I would say my powerband is somewhere between 4500 and 6000 rpm. After you get your tach let us know what you engine likes.
