2, 4 and 8 is easy to combine.

3 and 6 are a bit of a pain in the arse!

Basically they make a twin spark detector, then half the rate in 4 pot mode, and half it again for 8.

Doing 3's and 6's would take on a different division issue.

But good ones do 3 cylinders and 6 and 12.

For years I had gorgeous 52mm Yazaki Revcounter in a lovely
shaped dash mounted pod. Wish I had never sold it now. That did
4,6,8 or 12 but three cylinder ones are hard to come by it seems.
The only one I have had in recent years was a Marine one for
Outboards and that catered for 2,3,4, and 8 but it was very pricey
and was a three and a half inch surface mounted one.

Cheapest one on ebay is £71 and a quick look didn't turn up any to suit Hinkley Triumph triples either.

That is a superb spec Rev-counter Matt. Just had a read of it all and
what great value for money. They have got a lovely range of gauges
and I am going to find out if they can supply a nice Pod mount as that would set it off nicely.

I think this one is every tenth lamp-post. I will get some piccies for you at the weekend and email them to you Rich. It is beautifully restored in dark green and gold coachlining. Crank, conrod and bottom of piston are all exposed to the elements and water cooling is a 45 gallon drum !!!

Well I must say I have never seen a Beezer like that one before Rich. Looks somewhat similar
to a Panther. Lovely to see. Bet Logi has RIDDEN ONE in his younger days. bounce bounce

Ah the good old era where you hoped to only break down a couple of times on your ride.

People don't know they're born nowadays!

I've ridden a few old thumpers in my time..... Razz

But on the m/cycle front, give me a Jap multi any day. Also, I struggle to get excited about stationary engines, it's up there with trainspotting for me.

Got my wee V4 running, thats an engine noise I like.

Its bit of a strange conception a V4 really. That diabolical lump Ford stuck in the Corsair, Zephyr
and Transit was only fit for the scrap heap from the start, It was so out of balance that they had to incorporate a lumpy counter balance shaft in it with a fibre timing gear on a steel insert which inevitably moved and knocked the timing out and killed the engine.

Modern day bike engines today are amazing with the revs they do and the power outputs.
A customer I had about 3 years ago had a DOHC 4 cylinder 250cc -- I think it was a Yamaha
and he said it revved to 18,000 and to hear that howl still gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

Honda in the early sixties had a two cylinder 50cc 8valve bike developing 22.5 BHP at 22,500
RPM and had either a 14 or 16 speed gearbox. 50 years ago nearly -- scary to think about.
 
 Kreidler a German Moped manufacturer the same decade had a two stroke twin 50cc supercharged ice water cooled bike which set a speed record of 139 mph. Ridiculous to think 
that BSA were turning out 125 Bantams that would just about do 55mph downhill with the wind behind them at the time. !!! Well that was untill George Todd got his hands on them and 
breathed some life into them.

Thank goodness for modern progress and Technology.

Do any of our older fraternity remember the furore Honda caused in the early sixties with their
adverts in Motor Cycle and MCN with a picture of a Knight in armour with a lance standing on an old sidevalve motor bike ( may have been a BEEZER ) and with the caption " Its amazing what some Motor Cycles remind you of ". 

The British Bike purists kicked up a right stink about it -- I thought it was hilarious and well deserved too. Blinking old rubbish we were turning out -- save for Triumph and Norton.

Can you remember that Oldie ?

An nice simple Rev counter... Smile

Easy to read and with a mounting.

I am lost without a rev counter - so I will be fitting one at some point.

I think I will mount mine straight on top of the instrument pod. I want see it ....... Smile

Only had the old girl 6 days - a lot to do first!

So I will be picking brains.......... Smile

I've bought one of these off the bay:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291008075993?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

I've mounted mine the same place as xxemaphorr & HJ but I've dremel'd it so it faces up towards the driver. I could of mounted it on top of the dash in it's pod, but I feared it would probably get broken off in the long run. All I've got to do now is find this mystery plug for the pulse signal  Suspect

Hi have just fitted mine.

The plug, which is pictured in the early post, has the signal required.

It took me a while to find it, but it is there. Mine was tucked behind the carpet to the left of the clutch pedal.

Peel it back and you should see it. Both the white and blue connectors are there as shown previously.

I have mine mounted to the right, just above the Hyd res. It tucks away quite nicely in the corner. Mind you, the one I got is a bit huge!
I will photo and post sometime...............
It also has a rev limit light which can be set as desired, plus it lights up in 8 different colours as required.........a bit flash I know, but hey, we like a bit of flash don't we?
Or is that just me?
 Shocked

I've had the carpet up, and had a good look but I couldn't see any spare blocks anywhere.
The only thing i can think is because it's an earlier type? I've had a play and plugged it into the yellow / black wire on the diagnostic plug. It works, but I hope nothing goes bang. Lol
