I want to install a tach on my 2011 900 custom and have to get single pole adapter as the tach is double pole. I want to wire it to the headlight but was wondering if anyone knows which wire is the switch wire? Don't want to wire to the battery as I'd rather have the key turn it on / off. Any idea what color wire is the switch wire?

Connect tach wire as per instructions, to coil negative, and twist tach light and power together and connect to other side of coil. It is a switched 12v.

If i attach to the coil only will that enable it to only come on with the key and not stay on all the time? This sounds easier if i don't have to take the headlight apart

That is correct. Then three of the four wires all go in one direction. The ground will have to be connected elsewhere.

I would listen to sfair. That guy has more knowledge in his little finger than most have in their whole bodies.
