    Dominator / FMX
    I have an issue with my 92 Dommie cutting out after about 15 minutes riding, and is signalled this is going to happen by the tachy dropping to zero momentarily as the "missing" starts. What I'd like to know is where abouts in the electrical system is the signal for the tachy derived? At the...

  7. Rough running at low rpm + lazy tachometer.

    Africa Twin
    I'm new to this forum, so please bear with me if this problem has been debated before. I recently bought a '94 AT with a couple of problems included at no extra cost. At low rpm, the engine runs roughly and seems to misfire or "choke", but when the engine revs up, the bike suddenly jerks...
