Just got back from my ride and noticed my tach stopped working. Its just bouncing between 2-3k rpms.

Is this fixable or do I have to get a new assembly?

Thanks.

Awhile back my Tach did the same thing. On suggestion of some DucatiMS members I took it out and tightened 2 little screws in the back with a small flat head screwdriver and it started working again. You might try it before you spend a load of cash

I think I'll go the digital dash route if this doesn't work and it's over over a 100 bucks for the replacement part.

Mine did the exact same thing and It was a big fuse that was located under the fuse panel.
Boy, you guys really don't want me to get that digital dash...LOL.

Thanks for the tip. I think I've seen that fuse. There must be other things that go out if that fuse is shot...everything else works. That's strange.

actually when my fuse was out my tach was the only thing affected.
I checked that large fuse it was good. So, it could be the screws in the back or the circuit board. I don't think I'm going to mess around with the circuit board if it is that. That looks like a pain to disassemble/reassemble.

There is only one large fuse right?

Thanks.

Are there 3 of them and they are brass looking? They are the only screws on that back of the tach.

There you go. The last post from 1999r1 is where I got the fix for mine
Thank you.

I have 3 brass looking screws. I tightened them up. Not loose at all. That is a major pain getting that tach off/out. I'm waiting for the rubber posts that I accidently ripped out when taking the gauges out to come in at the dealer.

If these screws don't cure the problem, i'm getting the veypor unit. The monster crowd seems to like them. There's no way I'm replacing it with another OE unit that could go bad.

Man, that front end wiring, looks like a child put it together.
