Good size, not too conspicuos. Good price also. It seems to work really!
Poor visibility of the needle at bright day, and too brillant in the night. Very confusing the setting of the cyl. number. It has a label wit 4-6-8 cyl but under the label the plastic hull is marked with 3-4-6 cyl! In other words, the owner has to guess with try and error to discover where the RPMs match accurately with the real speed of the engine.
The instructions spoke of a shift light to change gear at setted RPM, and to choose between seven colour lights. I couldnt find neither the "set", "up" and "down" buttons nor the changing of the lights colour. Not very serious.... Ah, and the brand of the tacho, Ket Gauge, dont have a homepage where to ask.
All in one, a good purchase if it keeps running in order. For this price I cant expect the quality of a Vdo gauge....
