I'd give it a 5 if there wasn't a small bounce below 1K RPM. Overall - excellent product. Easy to install. I have 4in risers and there's plenty of wire from the tach to the coil. I really like the location; it's in clear view and I can check my rpms w/o looking nearly as far down as the speedo. I recommend these install instructions for the VTX 1300 Retro (source: slick_rick vtxoa.com) - note that if you follow these, you don't need to tap into wires in the headlight bucket (all connections are on the front coil). From the tach: Connect the Black wire to the bolt in front of the coil (2/2 part geen wires are already hooked up here)..GROUND Connect the Red and Blue wire to the INSIDE terminal on the back of the coil (Black/White wire are already connected here)..POSITIVE SIDE OF COIL Connect the Green wire to the OUTSIDE terminal on the back of the coil (Blue/Green or Yellow wire are already connected here)..NEGATIVE SIDE OF COIL...(PULSE SIDE) YOU DO NOT NEED ANY KIND OF TACH ADAPTER WIRING PIGTAIL TO DO THIS. JUST CONNECT THE WIRES AS STATED ABOVE. Also learned from the gang on vtxoa that you can color the LED with a felt-tip pen - consider red to match the speedometer.
