Re-Calibrate Rev Counter

I've recently converted my 1700 x'flow Locost to run without a distributor by utilising Fiesta HCS electronic wasted spark system. It's good, works nicely and cost 15 total.

I've created one problem though - because it effectively has two coils in the coil pack, and the rev counter take off is only on one, I only get half as many pulses and so the rev counter runs at half speed.

I would like to retain the Smiths clock. It is not practical to fit a new face to the dial (don't need a 14000 rpm counter - just need more needle movement.)

Anyone know of an electronic fix?
