Hello! This cannot be used on a motorcycle. We would recommend our Pro-Cycle series.

Well, I wish to know whether this instrument can be fitted on to a steam turbine. @ temperature not exceeding 48-50 *C ambient. in the turbine room. How is the speed sensing?

Asked by: Ravishankar
Hi there, thank you so much for the question. We can only make a recommendation for an automotive application. The 6299 Cobalt Tachometer will trigger off the negative side of the coil on older points and some newer electronic ignitions, and off the tach output on some aftermarket ignitions boxes like MSD.
