Re: 85 limited tachometer seems to be reading low

interesting One of my coils wasnt even firing, maybe it wasnt connected very well to begin with? I really dont know. I did notice the wires on one coil were swapped opposite of the other, so I assumed that was the issue. It did work afterwards. From some reading, the coil polarity shouldnt matter, a...

Re: 85 limited tachometer seems to be reading low

It's actually not too horribly bad. If you unbolt the coil bracket, which someone had left mine unbolted. You can slide it over enough to get your hands down in there, it's not fun, buy getting to it doesnt take too much time.

85 limited tachometer seems to be reading low

I recently got my limited dash working with an 86 sei. I noticed the tach seems to be reading a bit low going by sound compared to my 84 aspencade. Seems like it';s idling around 900 and reading 450. Any ideas?

Re: Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

Those are my lease favorite plugs in the world lol. I did find one attached to something down under the left cubby. That was removed right away. So I plugged the new dash in from my 86 sei. It works perfect now, no blown fuses. Go figure. I also plugged my good trip computer and the back lights powe...

Re: Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

yeah I agree. I didnt blow the number 7 fuse either. Not sure whats going on. i'd hate to put the spare dash and trip computer in to find out there is some other issue causing the smoking. I suppose if it was a short on the harness side, it would still short unplugged

Re: Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

I pulled the thing apart, and it burned up a varistor, and looks like it took out a transistor or 2 as well.

Re: Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

been unpolugging everythingm and I it's still blowing, so I pulled the dash, and the bike no longer blows the fuse. I can small something burnt in the dash as well. I'm guessing it has a short.

Re: Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

Thanks, I will look into the tail section. THe harness isn't too bad compared th the 86 sei parts bike I have, but there were a few things, and it's already been modded with the stator plug removal.

Keep blowing number 4 fuse on 85 sei

I picked up a gl1200 limited the other day with 46k. It seems to run so so. No codes showing, but the dash lcd and function lights arent working. The dash lights all work. So first thing I did was check fuses, and noticed number 4 dead. I was like well might as well chuck it in, and then I also noti...
