Even if you don't mount it up on the top of the clamp (or anywhere else you can see) you should have an odometer somewhere on the bike.

I know with cb750s, certain things start to go at certain mileages so I know to watch out for them.

+1 on keeping the tach, but mostly because my ear thinks the bike is screaming readline when the reality is I am probably only at 5K rpm. One of the neater tricks I have seen is that guys running only tachs on the street will make a mark on the tach at what rpms 55mph is in top gear, that way they know where to be to drop to the legal limit should they run into a speed trap.

well the tach was broken when i got the bike. just the other day the speedo cable which also controls the odometer snapped, so rather than just run w/ two broken clocks i took them both right off. i will likely get some electric guages. i found a mechanical to electrical speedometer adapter. but right now i kind of like not having them.
be aware, what ever state you are in may require them in order for your bike to be inspected.
