Default Tach for 2014 X-Road

I have been looking at a tach (part #2877652) that was made for 2010 Cross bike. According to the Victory website, it says it will not fit my 2014.
Anyone else ever try installing a this tach in a Cross bike other than a 2010?

The part number for a 2011-2014 crossroads is 2878209, that also is discontinued.

They discontinued it?!?! What else has been discontinued for the XR. I have been debating getting a second larger windshield for longer trips. Have they also stopped production on those?

Eight Ball,
Start calling dealers and see if you can find one that has a tach in stock. Just because it's been discontinued doesn't mean it's unattainable.

TNXR,
You can still get the lexan part of the windshield from Cee Bailey or 7Jurock. You would have to install the metal parts from your windshield on them but it only takes 15-20 minutes to do.

I have a list of other dealers that still show that they have one or two on the shelf. PM me for info. Most look to be on the east coast or midwest.

I have the X large Cee Bailey on my X road - perfect for me. I'm 5'10 and have zero buffeting and can still look over the shield if I sit up straight -very good quality.

I just put the tach on my bike - glad I did! I got it from pure Polaris on sale for $114 about 6 weeks ago during their winter sale. Normally $199. It is a good improvement - Vic should have put them on the X Roads

Wow! Great response to my question, Thanks everybody.
Does this 2878209 kit include everything I need including cables and mounting brackets for both speedo and tach, or is there another part I need to find?
Description of the kit is a bit brief no matter where I look.
