VDO 2 1/16" tach for an R80G/S?

Has anyone used a VDO tach like the one linked below? I have a tach in a pod on my bike but it's dead. A lot cheaper to do this versus a Palo Alto Speedo repair... Anyone done this before?

Motoren Israel lists 13 fold rubber boots (Art.-Nr.: 3142115). Would these be better for a G/S? I like the thick rubber and I've already split two sets of stock sets on the G/S in the last 10 years.
