SPEEDOMETER AND TACHOMETER MOUFUNCTION !!!!

Postby kajunmisfitt » Sat Apr 26, 2014 2:05 am



I was wondering since I took both cables out on the speedometer and the tachometer and it is still jumping up and down,(bobbin up and down). I was wondering (and I know no one can tell me the exact reason why it is behaving this way without seeing it run) So give am your best "OPOINION". Am I looking at replacing both meters or maybe the whole deal in the hub !!!! Please let me know !!!! Thank for all the help in everything I have wrote about !!! God Bless you ALL !!! Keep up the good work !!!

On my 1500 the speedometer started jumping up and down and then quit. Turned out to be the drive assembly in the wheel.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "
