Nothing wrong with "Made in Japan" - on the contrary, Japanese products are almost always of the highest quality. I'd much rather have made in Japan than China/India. Where did you get yours? I'm interested in fetching a Japanese tach for my XR too.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

He got it for Christmas and it may have been by Japanese elves.

Be nice in 2012 and let Santa know you want one and he may bring you one too. Hopefully it won't be made by elves in China or India...

Yeah, Japanese elves are far more detail oriented than those sloppy Chinese and Indian elves - nothing personal to anybody's nationality, race, color or religion!

I agree with Japanese quality, i own a nissan 350z aswell. Just thought that "the other american" motorcycle would make their own. It was purchased from Honda East Toledo, they seem to stock most victory accessories. It's dark out so no installing the tach today... if only my landlord wouldnt be an ass about storing the bike indoors.

You need a new landlord! Say "no" to biker haters.

I put the Victory (japanese) tach on my Crossroads not long after I got and I love it. Install is easy just follow instructions and use a little soapy water solution on the rubber rings/dampers to ease installation. Good stuff.

Still no time/daylight to install

Notice the "VICTORY U.S.A" stamp on the gauge


Yet it's "Made in Japan"
