Hi guys,i am having problems with the tach on my bike. The problem is that it is really slow to increase and decrease as you rev up and down. Maybe some of you guys have encountered the problem before. Thanks again,you guys do a great job here.

Not with the tach,mine was with the spedo.I was rolling 60 by the time it got up to 25.I took it completely apart and lubed the pivot points on the needle with a drop of WD40.It loosened up OK.
