    I just got a tach put on my bike (80cc).
    I have a speedometer on it too.
    I would like to get some input from everyone..
    I am trying to see if the tach is reading the right RPM's.
    What is a good benchmark. (25MPH=5000PRM)

    My front sprocket is what came stock in the kit, and my back sprocket is 40tooth.

    If you got to - MotoredBikes.com: Motorized Bicycle Forum - Powered by vBulletin the other site and go to the heading "wild in the streets" the first sticky should be a gear ratio calculator.
    First enter 20 for the first gear(the small clutch gear) then 82 (for the large clutch gear) then 10 (for the small sprocket) then 40 for your rear sprocket, then input your tire size and rpm and it will give you your MPH

    First of all I haven't full tested the one I bought.. just up and back on the street last night. I plan to ride today to do some more testing though.
    I bought it for $20 off Amazon.
    I made the selection of 1 fire per revolution, then wrapped the censor around the spark plug wire about 4 times and zip tied it there.
    If you want.. I could get some pictures.

    Well yesterday I was turning 6,310rpm on my 212cc geared at 10.80:1 and a CVT and was going 56.1mph. That's all I can tell you. Not sure what the final drive ratio is with the CVT but I was flyin' down the road for sure.....it'll do over 60mph with this gearing.
