The Spyida conversion kits needle damping can be changed but Chris who I have been in dialog with has indicated that to do this requires changing a surface mounted capacitor.  So as the PCBA is doped with a coating of anti fouling goop it would be slightly more involved.  Chris indicated that the chosen value was used to stop needle bounce at idle and that the tachometer can read quite accurately at the calibrated value and indicate the RPM effectively while the drive train is under load.  Its the quick accelerator jabs with the clutch pedal depressed that may not get recognized as the engines response will beat the capacitors charge/discharge rate i.e. thus the needles movement is subdued to what ever that rate of change is that is dictated by this capacitor!
