Hey guys. I put a Vapor gauge on the bike, and it turns out they sent me the wrong leads for how I am hooking up the tach. Basically I am missing a resistor. No problem, all I need is a 600k ohm resistor. BUT, I need to know how many watts are sent along those r/w wires that head to the coils so that I can buy a resistor that is rated for the correct wattage. I don't have a multimeter with me (it is about 2 hours north at the moment) so I can't measure it very easily. Anyone know what it is off the top of their head? Don't go measuring it if you don't it really isn't that big of a deal that I can't wait until I get a multimeter, but I thought that someone might know!

If you have a 600k resistor in the tach line, you are NOT seeing full coil power. Any resistor, 1/8w or even less, will do fine.
