  6. Wrong (too low) tacho reading

    Africa Twin
    Hi! It seems my tacho is showing the RPM wrong. When idling at ~1000rpm, the tacho stays at 0 and just vibrates slightly. As soon as I open the throttle it moves upwards quickly, but doesn't catch up properly until around 4-5000 rpm. Any ideas what may be causing this? I think it's always been...

  9. Rd 03 cdi question

    Africa Twin
    After having to take a walk with my @ rd03 it turns out one of the cdi's is iffy. More specifically the one that signals the pump and tacho. So i purchased a replacement (the argentinian one that's readily available). It now turns out that this one doesn't power the pump either (note the old...
  10. Suspect ICU

    Mechanical Advice
    The tacho on my RD04 won't read higher than 3500-4000 rpm,irrespective of speed. Everything else works fine and dandy. I've checked the wiring for any breaks - non visible. So,as suggested some time ago by a forgotten forum member (apologies to whoever that was) the ICU may be the fault. I...

  16. trailtech vapor tacho fix

    Africa Twin
    Ok now the part you all really care about... The tach.... The answer is quite simple... Noise, Yes signals from other plug/ devises (fan blinkers ext.) are interfering with the tach reading because the wires are exposed. I used a two conductor (One black one red wire) Shielded wire to fix this...
  17. Tacho fix

    Africa Twin
    A friend belonging to another site of similar bike, found a great repair for a tachometer that has suffered an overheat. The regulator/rectifier blew on the RD04 and blew the headlights and boiled the battery as well as frying the Tacho. It only worked up to 3.5 - 4000 rpm, no more no matter...
