Sounds like you are capable of working on your own machine. Get the Harley Service Manual for your machine. Best $30 investment you can make. Else, with all engines I've worked on, if you connect your instrument to the "wrong" coil terminal the worst that happens is you get no RPM reading; go to the other terminal.

I would like to hook up tach on my 05 sportster do i have to remove my gas tank


The trigger wire for the tach probably connects to the coil or the ignition box. As long as you can get to the connections on the coil, you shouldn't have to remove the tank. However, removing the tank on a Sporty is not a problem. Drain the gas, disconnect the hose, remove three bolts and lift the tank off.

Cant find the tach sensor on a 2000 1200 sportster


The tachometer is an electronic tach and gets it's "pulses" from the ignition coil. The older bikes had a pink wire that went to "negative" side of the coil. The negative side of the coil is the side the electronic sensor plate in the ignition cavity on the right side of the engine connects to.

Hooking up a tach on a 89 harley sportster 883, green wire goes to ignition wire, where and what color is the wire?


Most aftermarket tachometers will employ a 3 wire system. A "power" wire, a "signal" wire and a "ground" wire. On a stock Sportster's ignition coil there will be 2 terminals/posts. 1 post will have a set of white wire on it the other a blue or pink wire. White is switched 12VDC (vehicle power) and the blue/pink is the secondary side of the coil (signal). I'd really need more information to be most helpful.
