    Where to connect tach trigger for Transistorized Ignition

    Someone asked me about this and I thought it would be useful to make it generally available:

    When installing a Danmoto 180 or any other instrument panel which requires a trigger signal for the tachometer connect the trigger wire to either the blue or yellow wire at the coils. If the tach needle jumps around erratically adding a resistor of approx. 10K ohm in series usually fixes the problem (I needed the resistor on the GoldWing but did not on the 650)

    Looking at installing the MotoGadget MotoScope mini on my bike in the next little while and will be giving this a go. Thanks Bob!
