Any way of fitting a rev counter (cheaply, from one from a scrappy for instance) to a cinq that doesn't currently have one? Are the connections there?

the 899cc cinq's don't have the wiring for a tach, simply because the sporting tach gets it's signal pulse from the ECU of which it can't get from an 899cc ECU[xx(]

Its the same type (16F) of ECU in bothe the cars...so probably has a common architecture, so if yu can find what wire the pulse is send on in the Sporting, you could always put the wire in!

Nicely, Haynes chose to omit that one!

The ECU is the fuel injection system's brain simple as. All Cinqs made from 1995 onwards use the Marelli Weber 16F ECU model of these, so If the ECU in the Sporting produces a pulse for a tacho, so will an ECU in an 899cc!.

But still, a lot of tachometers take a feed from the ignition coil..problem is, most 4 cyl engines use 1 coil for all the cylinders, but the Cinq nicely uses 2, so it (the system) produces half the number of pulses than a typical system.

I use the old "engine noise is proportional to the number of RPM" method.

I.e. RPM = k*intensity of engine noise
Where K is an abitary constant which varies between cars

I would love a RPM counter but the complications of it far outweight the use of it IMO.

Best of luck however.

Rev it till it cuts out (6200 in an 899) then change up just before then next time.

Hmm, has it got a rev limiter or is that when the head gasket goes bang?

899's cut out at around 6200, Sportings at around 6900 - 7200.
