tachometer not working
Written by kjp986 on 10/10/2010 at 02:50 pm

Mine is intermittent, and tried asking similar questions here with no answers...
Mine would fail to come on with the motor starting, but always does eventually.
Maybe seconds, or minutes, sometimes miles after starting for the first time in
a day.
I took the gauges off and took a good look at the tach and connectors. Nothing
seemed amiss and the tach needle moved freely. Re-assembled and it worked well
for a while. Came back a couple times recently, but only for a moment each time.
I guess the bottom line is I don't know either! LOL

previous owner changed the instrument gauge set 3 years ago(speedometer,odometer
and tach) Looks like I may have a recurring problem. The bike ran fine though.
Can someone help me check the tach with what meter and how, and does it hurt to
operate bike with out tach. Probably stupid question, but I had to ask. Thanks
