Faulty rev counter

Post by bloodnut »

hey all,

my road ns400's rev counter reads correctly to 6500-7000 rpm then goes crazy, I have changed it for my spare one and the same thing happens.

I also tried changing cdi's but its still the same.

The connectors all seem ok.

Any ideas?

Do a search as it has been covered before. From memory, the battery seemed to be the main suspect. It it isn't tip top, the electrical system goes a bit haywire. Check main fuse for cracks too while you are in there.

If you cant rev beyond 7000rpm when you drive the bike then you maybe need one of these:
