I noticed the other post about a guys new CB and the tach was jumpy. He had some issues with just the overall running status of his bike. Now the thing is my bike purrs and drives fine. Say once I get above 6k then the needle acts like it has turrets. The bike still pulls fine and whatnot. Just the tach is all retarded. It's a 80 CM400T.

Or lubricate the cable that's on there.

So just get a new cable or am I cable to pull out the cable and clean everything and slide it back into the outter housing or no? It's not biggy, just more of a nuisance. Like I said the bike runs perfect, just the tach is retarded under heavy throttle or the higher rpms.

Sounds simple enough for me. Just curious...are you able to use an aftermarket tach and just wire it to the coil like you do in an automobile?
