When you all tune your bikes, do you find it enough to use the Stock Tach or is it recommended to use something a bit more accurate? aka a tiny tach or some aftermarket stuff? bear in mind i have never ridden or even heard a 79 CX500 run, so what is normal to you or a 'familiar' sound is all new to me.

I use a portable digital tach that clips onto the plug wire. It seems the shop manuals say not to rely on the bike's tach. You can always compare your tach to a shops portable. With time you'll be able to get 'close' by ear and feel but it is still suggested to use a tach.
