Got a Tach for my new 2011 Jackpot, thought I'd share some install pics. NOTE - Victory sent me the dual pod mount with the Tachometer in backwards. This threw me for awhile until I did the test fit then I saw it.


The left pic is how it came in the box, the right one is after I swapped it around and put the speedo grommet in place.

The first thing you want to do it read the instructions, mine did not come with any. Thus the reason for this writeup. Cover the fuel tank and front fender to protect the paint. Then remove 4 square head drive screws on the btm side of the headlight and pull the top lid off. Place it aside. Look in there for a wiring connector with a black cap over it, that is your new tach connection point.


Remove 4 bolts holding on the present speedometer and single pod housing. Remove the single sqaure drive bolt holding on the chrome cover on the back of the speedo. Pull it off. Use a screwdriver and carefully pry up the female connector on the harness and separate the wiring from the speedo. Place the Speedo pod and gauge aside.

Carefully work the speedo out of the single pod. That large grommet has a hold on it, just work it side to side. Then place the speedo grommet in the new dual pod. Orient the grommet correctly, there are two "slots" on each side of the pod to accept the grommet. This "clocks" the speedo in the right spot.

Also transfer the rubber insulators over to the new dual pod. Note where the washers lay within this install.

Install the gauge rear covers, start the square header screw and washer, tighten to spec.

Place the new dual pod in position and start all 4 bolts. See where the washers go on ? Once all the bolts are started,tightne them up to spec. Run the wiring harnesses into the headlight pod uniformly.

Position the headline cover and start all 4 screws. Then tighten them to spec.

Start the bike and check for function. :)

Why not have a separate section to hold this info

First of all, great post..and really helpful..

Moderators, it would be great to have section to capture this type of post....i know we have a technical section, but mods and how to do section would be of advantage to all users...

just my thoughts..

regards,

Derekcheers

I just finished the install of the tachometer on my '07 Ness. Although it did come with instructions, it was nice to have your write up along side me in the garage. Thanks again Tachdriver.thumb up
