depends on how the tacho reads engine rpm, usually there's two way to connect a tacho :

1. RED (+) to main switch (brown)
BLACK (-) to body / mass
BLUE to orange cable / white cable (pulser)

2. RED (+) to main switch
BLACK (-) to body / mass
BLUE to wrap around spark plug cable (induction method)

all the electric tacho are not accurate, only the mechanic tacho ( Connect directly to the engine by cable) are accurate.

it also depends on where and what brand tach you get. I just installed a Type R on my bike and the Black wire was the Positive to ignition wire, yellow with black stripe was +coil, green was - coil, and the redish brown was light switch. ask the shop that you get the coil from which wire's are for what. it makes it much easier.

just remember, not all tach's are the same or have the same color code wiring. so it's kinda hard to explain what wire goes to where.

I could explain how i installed my tach, but like i said, the color of the wires are not all the same.
