    Can someone tell me where the blue, red and green wire go????? Black is ground. However I followed the manual for my 883n and its says orange wire is irnition, light green is ignision and blue fform the lights is power? Is this right. Another question if the tach is on 8 MAX 1000 and stuck is it fried no good?

    Welcome to The Forum, did your CCI tach not come with instructions? What is the part number?

    Hi Jack,

    Well its a Custom Mini-Electric Tachometer from CCI. Strange no part number on papers but box has 688059 on it. Jack my question is The red says to connect to ignition on DC 12v. (in looking through the shop manual for the 883n its a gray wire). The Blue wire is to a lamp on, (which I placed it on the blue wires to the left turn signal). The green goes to the data wire Light green and violet, and the Black is the ground... Turn on the bike NADA, Kaput, nothing..... Help:cry

    Perhaps a call to the manufacturer? E-mail them?

    Cheers!

    You have a 2010 bike. The catalog page for the tach says it fits up to 2003.

    Custom Chrome 2012 iCatalog - page 10.62
