Hi Everyone,
Has anyone dealt with replacing a 2010 AR240 Port side Tachometers in the helm dash?
Do the 2011 and 2012 AR240 Tachs also work ( are they interchangealbe)?
The 2010 AR240 says unavailable anymore in the parts lists - but i know the 2011 and 2012 are similar boats in design/mechanical side, hence the question.
They are different part numbers in the catalog.

Thanks,

JBP

Found the tach for my 2010 242 LS which would be the same as what you need. However... it's $804!!! You may as well buy ride steady or perfect pass and use their system and forget about the factory tach!

Yamaha F2D-U8245-20-00 - Tachometer : Yamaha Sports Plaza

That price seems nuts. My tachs both get moisture in them, been that way for years. Have just learned to live with it.

To your original question, I would not think that there would be any difference in the 2011 at all. The 2012 is when they changed up the dash a bit (I believe) still shouldn't make a difference but wiring could be different. Good luck, sorry I couldn't be more help.

Are your just not working anymore?

Port tach is out completely. Causes the starboard tach to go haywire. I just bought the boat so doing a little troubleshooting. Previous owner indicated it started with moisture in the tach prior to failing. Thanks for your insight on the 2011 version.

For the 2010-2014 the actually wiring harness is the same part number based on the website you referenced so I think the wiring is the same. It looks like the 2012 Port Tach is about $381 so I may go for that. Hoping the color schemes are the same. I am trying to contact some of the Tach repair places first as any money saved goes to new toys and tires on the trailer.
