Default Good Cheap Tachometer Recommendations

Like the title says I'm planning on removing the governor in my 212 and I'd like to put a tachometer on it, any good cheap ones I should be looking for?

I've had good luck with the cheap Chinese (isn't that redundant?) digital tachs from Fleabay that work well.

Make sure you look for the type that has a removable battery. The other has the battery sealed in permanently and has no battery door on the back.

EDIT: I'm looking at this larger, backlit one for my dirt bike. Decent reviews.

Seams alright... havent really done much with it.. but it works...
Check reviews, and ask the main question of is it changeable battery...
