The mounting kit showed up before the rev counter, so I went ahead and installed that on my ’17 UGS today. I went with the mounting kit that is listed in the Scrambler parts catalogue. Part number 77 53 8 389 483. This kit included the aluminum mounting bracket. As others have mentioned, there was a slight tension on the clutch cable when turned all the way to the right. I cut all of the zip ties holding the line to the frame from the triple tree back to the transmission. I think it was only 3 or 4 ties and that loosened it up enough that I can turn lock to lock with no issues. I put a couple zip ties back on loosely to keep the line in place. The wire for the rev counter was bundled under the right side of the tank and released with no problem. Fairly straight forward and easy install. Had to remove the fairing, but didn’t lift or remove the tank.

Nicely done group of posts. I was a bit hesitant about this expenditure, but ya‘all have built my confidence, and I’m ordering the parts.

thank you,
DC

While browsing the Motorrad fische I noticed they offer two possible mounting brackets for use if you add the Rev Counter. The first one which is discussed in length here is plastic and flexes (46638558379), the second one is a cast aluminum piece and is painted black, and is pretty rigid (77318558093).

Both work interchangeably on the Pure, Scrambler, and UGS. I've just swapped my plastic bracket for the cast part, and will report back as soon as I can about its performance, which may be mid March - seeing we got a 13" pile of snow here last Thursday.
@Dauphinais, do you know if the cast part works also in a 2018 Classic? The part that shows in the fiche for my bike is the plastic part but I hate the vibration, particularly because it does detract from the legibility at higher speeds. It's difficult to know whether I'm doing 140 or 160km/h...

Unfortunately, it's only listed as fitting the Pure & the Scrambler.

But one thing for sure, I couldn't stand the vibration, so I was going to do something myself before I found this part (77318558093).

I know, I know, it's only shown as an accessory for the Pure/Scrambler but since the Classic's 46638558379 seems to fit in the Pure/Scrambler (same screw hole locations and distances), I'm wondering if 77318558093 would also fit the Classic.

If the 46638558379 fits, then the 77318558093 will fit, same bolt pattern. I've had them both on my bike. It's a $90 purchase, but one of my best add ons.

Ray, I'd approach this three ways. Quickest, go to realoem.com and enter the last 7 digits of the VIN. This 'should' bring up your specific 'bike' including the production date. Then go "browse" the parts listings. If unfamiliar with BMW's methodology... IE "grouping" of parts my major assemblies, you may have to look in several groups.

Second, Once you have a part number, Google the part number without dashes. Google will bring up a few dozen BMW dealer's on-line price listing. Read the screen carefully, looking for model fitment details. Its at the 9 o'clock on the page.

Third: go to KFM web site in Germany. If necessary, learn to speak German or in the upper right switch the language to whatever... Enter the part number at KFM or ask them for price and availability AND model fitment..


Stay safe,
Dick Casey

I did the rev counter add on to my 2017 Pure in the spring of 2019. After reading this thread and many of you guys going first. When I went to the dealer to order the parts (back when I still trusted my dealer), BMW had already put together a "kit" for folks wanting to add the tach. The kit included the aluminum bracket. I was not aware there was also a plastic bracket. So the kit I got from BMW had the aluminum bracket in it, instead of a plastic one. I'm relieved, as bouncing gauges is not something I'd like to encounter at 75mph.

Best,
-Tim

Any of those approaches will yield the 77318558093 as not compatible (per BMW) with my bike which is not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for fitment possibility which is a totally different thing. I have Racer parts in my bike for example and they do fit perfectly but if I do what you say, they will show up as not compatible (per BMW) ;)

You can even graft the whole front end of a Classic onto a Pure. That's not compatible (per BMW) but it will fit :cool:

I think you’ll be fine.

laalves, if you can wait a couple weeks I'll let you know for certain as I've just ordered the 77318558093 metal bracket with hope of fitting to my 2019 Classic.

That's great! I'm quite interested in your conclusions.
