    Default Tachometer part# 92051-65

    I have a complete tachometer correct for my 1969 flh, but I am hesitant putting on my bike because I have to drill through my headlight bucket. Any opinions and will it hurt or add value?
    Thanks

    Boy I'm glad to see that, I sure heard wrong then. Is there a cable with a 90 degree bend that fits under the tach mounting bracket? The cable I have does not seem to fit, part# 92062-6SA.

    I have this bracket:

    How are you trying to mount it?

    I am bolting the bottom of the tach to the top of the bracket. The bracket then bolts to the handlebar clamp cover, but I have not drilled any holes yet. I ran the cable between the handlebar clamp and the nachelle headlight bucket.

    Where does this word nachelle come from? Harley-Davidson called it a housing.

    PickyPickyPicky, Chris!

    It's spelled 'nacelle'.

    My question is: What color are the indicator lights supposed to be on which side, and how many holes in each side?

    (For '65 ha ha..)

    I post with a kindle which has auto correct and changes the spelling of words it thinks should be there, hence nacelle to nachelle. Maybe the use of "nacelle" upsets the aircraft members. I just wanted to avoid the question of having the correct headlight assy.

    My 1969 FLH has a red light on the left and a green light on the right. My 77 FLH has two toggle switches on the right.

    Kindles don't sound friendly, Ryan!

    Seems few nachels are poked the same.

    A fellow who worked at the Factory in '65 told me that some of assembly was often left to the Dealer.

    "As left the factory" requires a crate.

    PS: Late edit..
    My '65s have the square-brooched hole for the tach drive. I coulda had one more toy!

    Yes, the kindle is a pain sometimes.
    I have distributor cable adapter 92097-65. My tach needs the aluminium glass ring replaced. I have one, but would rather send it out somewhere just in case of whatever.
