Yes I'm still using the original Tiger Tach.
I put the Jacobs electronic system in first, this required the Jacobs
Tach adaptor, which in turn required my original Tach to be adjusted.
Tiger Tom looked at the Jacobs Tach adaptor and built a better one
that should work with any electronic ignition system.
The IGNITOR by it's self only connects to the coil and should not
change the signal to the Tach. I'm only guessing here, I have not
tried the IGNITOR without the Jacobs unit. The Tiger owner who
informed me about the IGNITOR never mentioned having any problems with
Hope this helps.
