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?

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 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.

Maybe I did not ask the right question.
If I buy the tach kit, does it come with all of the parts to install.
The pics look like the speedo and tach share a common two hole bracket. Do I have to find a lead or build one to get the rpms?
I might be over thinking this install, but before I sink 200 USD into a tach, I want to ensure it will comes with all of the parts.
My experience with my truck headlite change over was a damn nightmare and wound up spending 600 USD and nothing fit or worked like the dude promised me on the phone. Anyone looking for a couple Cree 9005 headlites, I will sell at a bargain price.
But I digress...
Just mount it and plug it in.

It comes with everything you need, no extra parts. It will include the new mounting bracket. You take the speedo and bracket off and take speedo off your old bracket and put in new double hole bracket along with the tach. It is just plug and play at that point. Kit comes with decent instructions.

I agree completely with IRV, there is no way I could go back to the single speedo. IMO the XR is too big of a bike to have that one cluster. The double cluster looks more normal and shame on Polaris for not putting it on the XR's to begin with.

I have the tach but the meddle is bouncy sometimes. Dealer has replaced it twice but it's still doing it

Any ideas?

Do you mean the "metal" bracket that the tach/speedo go in? Mine is very stable. Do you run without a windshield?

I recently put one on my X Road - it is snug because of the rubber with a metal sleeve attachment to the handlebar area. Only thing I can think of is if the metal sleeves were not inserted in the rubber grommets -

Kit comes with the chrome bracket and plug and play leads to a connector in the headlight nacelle. I went one step farther and added the Healtech gear indicator.

Ordered, will be here end of March when the in-laws get back from Phoenix.
I can hardly wait until the rest of my goodies show up too.
