Anybody tried this Tach on their zx10r? I am thinking about getting one, it's got gear indicator (04-07 oem don't have it) and a battery warning light which could be nice too.

Gear indicators don't just magically work on a stock harness. Even an updated harness (if it fits) still won't make the indicator work.
That's how it worked for the CBR1000RRs when I looked intro upgrading the 08-11 dash to the 12+ digital display. Was a simple plug and play w/ new harness but gear indicator was a no-go no matter what. Could be wrong for the ZX... likely not lol.
Looks kind ching-chong-ish though... you sure it'll fit?

It's a universal tach, it will need custom mount and harness, meaning it is not plug and play.

Yeah I saw those...says they work for z1000 and not a zx10.

I wanted the GIpro one but just can't bring myself to spend that much just to not search for 7th gear...wish a used one would come on the market, I'd snatch it up.

Nevermind, I found on the link you sent for a zx10r

I saw that one, I offered him $75 for it a little while back and he told me NO WAY in not a nice way...so I didn't want to deal with him.

My current setup. 2010 gauge cluster w/ 08 gear position switch.
Custom wired adapter from 05 harness.
Speedohealer for different pulse

This thing is LEAPS and BOUNDS over the stock tachometer.
