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.Well, i picked out my xmas gift and got a victory tachometer (dual pod setup), hope to install it today, the instructions seem straight forward.
One thing there is a stamp on it "MADE IN JAPAN" wtf... Pics to follow later
:ltr: 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!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...
You need a new landlord! Say "no" to biker haters. cheersI 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.
The whole gauge is made in japan, saw another stamp after installing last week on the internalsIt looks like the bracket is made in Japan from your pic,no?
Is that where the gauge is made also?
Also, why would you think Victory themselves would be in the Tach making business? They make the meat and potatoes of the important stuff.It would be very expensive to produce every single piece themselves,rather than let companies already setup to manufacture specialized pieces. I put one of those tach's on my bike right after I bought the bike .Excellent quality instrument.
