tachometer not working
Written by ridearoundth... on 10/12/2010 at 01:37 am



Next time it doesn't work try tapping the gauge glass. I always attributed it
to the needle sticking at the bottom and once loose never seems to have a

gauges out I lubed the area with a dry lube and it seemed to help but then the
problem returned.
Minor glitch in my book.
