I did, and got a deal to trade it on the 1500. I have it tore apart in the shop now going through filter changes and fluid changes. I have tires ordered, that should be in Monday. I am starting to put the front back together now. I have gotten the antifreeze changed, filters done and the dirt dobber nest off the right radiator that had the fan locked up:X.



Now if I can just remember where everything goes!!:shock:

I don't ride mine enough to keep it, with Bashful on the road just don't ride anymore.

Haven't heard from him this weekend tried calling but know answer.

Was hoping someone else had tach problems before.

Don't think I need to try and tear into the fairing.

Hang in there buddy, I should be home in about a month. Maybe one of the guru's can help with your problem.

There are only two wires on the Tachometer. Green wire is ground, yellow/blue wire connects to the engine control module.

Possibilities:

1. Loose, cooroded ground connection at the Tachometer.

2. Loose, cooroded power connection at the Tachometer.

3. Bad connection at the engine control module.

4. Faulty electro unit in the Tachometer.

5. Bad connection at the C72 connector.

6. Bad connection at the C66 connector.

I don't think you have a bad ground (at the frame) as there are several other lights etc. that use the same wire for the ground point at the frame. And they are working....right??

The power wire (Yellow/Blue) goes from the engine control module through a C72 and C66 connector on it's way to the Tachometer.

The C72 connector (13-pin black) is located behind the right fairing pocket.

I would check for power at the C72 connector. The wire is yellow/blue on the engine control module side and yellow/green on the Tachometer side.

The C 66 connector (20-pin white) is located behind the instrument panel.

The yellow/green wire goes in to the C66 connector and a yellow/blue wire comes out of the connector going to the Tachometer.

Jim

The turn signals are canceling and the cruise works, I noticed while checking this out my lights in the right saddle bag are out.

Ricky, Depends on which type of saddlebag lights you have. If they are the Hondaline saddlebag lights, it's probably the "inverter box" located above the panel under the right tail light assembly.

If it's other types, I would check the power and ground connections for the saddlebag light.
