You can install an external tachometer that reads your wheel speed. There's one on Amazon for Kawasaki for $19USD.

Some clamp onto a spark plug wire, others are 2 piece, where one small piece clamps onto your wheel, and the other clamps onto a fork and measures the wheel RPM - but those are more for bicycles, not motorcycles (where you'd like engine RPM - not wheel RPM).

Good luck! You can find more articles and forum posts by Googling "External Motorcycle Tachometer"
