Tach readout gone weird
Hi All.
I have a 1989 GL1500.

Took bike out of garage yesterday , everything all ok.
Did a check of all fluids and undid the radiator cap. A small amount of water came out.
All appeared ok so put cap back on.

About an hour later I went to go out and started bike and noticed tach reading 1500rpm at idle, (norm is 800). :? :?

Under acceleration tach now goes into the red at anything over 1/4 throttle.

At all speeds from 30mph to 60mph in top gear tach now reads around 1000-1200rpm above norm. :?: :?:

All other gauges reading perfectly.

Have checked all connections and assertained correct voltage reading at tach.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I don't have a clue about the 1500's. You might want to do a search or ask the question at Steve's Site:

Hi fellas and thanks for your input.

I had also listed help on Steve Saunders site.

Pulled all the connectors apart and cleaned them with contact cleaner, cleaned up all the earth connections and problem solved Big Grin Big Grin
