from the how to dyno thread:

1) To connect the RPM pickup use an allen wrench to loosen and lift the plastic engine cover. The tach pickup connects to the wire bundle going to a coil pack. If the dyno operator can't get a signal, just move to another bundle under there until you find one that works.

Yes, you just tap into the coil plugs, they have new tachs that read tach signals through inductance.
