Tach on 2005

I have a 2005 bonnie and plan to put in a small speedo but was wondering how difficult it is to put a 1.9" tach where there was none before. Would it be mechanical or electric? Like to have duel 1.9" speedo and tach

Thx Dave, I like the clean look of one gauge but a 2.25 speedo with a 1.9 tach might look good. I bought my bike in May 2012 and hit the road running. I got black pred's wrapped my pipes, re jetted and changed the needles, put on Biltwell black tracker with black Napoleon bar end mirrors then dropped rear pegs with LSL black billet pegs. I feel like a crack addict ( feed the family or get a new speedo) : )
