Tach on a V-twin?

I'm thinking about adding a tach to my Honda GX620 (v-twin). I'm confused on if a auto 4-cylinder will work or if a 'tiny-tach 2' is my only option? I was thinking of a small retro looking anolog just for the vintage look. I really not sure on the disposable tiny-tach. I acually have a vibra-tach to set the rpm so more or less thinking on it for looks but still accurate. I also have a mini-tach from sunpro that has a 4-6-8 cylinder switch on backside. I 'THINK' the Honda GX620 fires coil on every revolution so it would fire at bottom of stroke too as well as compression- this might not work on regular auto tach? I guess I need to get help from techs on this as I'm not sure on the firing and what will work..

Maybe check out motorcycle or snowmobile shops. I'd expect they would have something for a 2 cylinder machine.

A Harley Davidson has a v-twin, rig up the exhaust. Then you could run your " Harley blower" snow would
Run in fear.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)
