Tachos are expensive, but speedos are relatively cheap. I bought a teleflelx 35MPH white speedo kit from nautequipe at the southampton boatshow for 35. Worth phoning them to see if they've got any left.

For the tachometer, best to speak to your local yamaha agent.

Have you spoken to Bembrige outboards? they were breaking a Yam 80 and a Yam 115 recently so might have spare gauges

One way of getting a speedo is to buy a cheapish depth sounder they come with a speedo sensor built in usually!

Plastimo do a speedo (49) and a tacho (59) which I think are compatable with the majority of engines (mines a Mariner). I have the speedo and it works well enough. I'm planning to install the techo sometime very soon....
