The tachs suffer from 40+ year-old lubricant in their needle bearing. A poertion of a drop of silicone spray (very thin stuff) applied with a plastic toothpick will thin the old lube and provide returned response and accuracy. I test by diving it with a battery powered drill in reverse using a used pop rivet stud to drive it. There are numerous internet and Youtube instructions for getting into and resealing the case. Use your bad one to practice on.

pidjones: Thinks for the tach suggestion. It's working much better.

Time for an update...

Today was a good day for my Ol' Wing. I think I got it dialed-in. Not without a lot of false starts and retries, and who know with these old bikes tomorrow I might have to change something that's already been changed or adjusted twice already. Here's the most recent events:

Two weeks ago I changed the drilled out idle jet I made (think it was about a 40) with a store bought 40 and bench testing showed a good improvement, especially idling. Wednesday morning the rain had stopped and I suited up for a ride to town. Bike was running good, not great, but good, rich as hell, but good enough for a longer ride. So, Wednesday, I rode 65 miles.

Yesterday, I rode it and noticed the smell of gas when idling (after the temperature gauge was in the middle). Shut it off and pulled the air breather and the choke was still closed. Checked the voltage, 11.5 v, not good, zip-tied the choke wide-open. Started right up, and rode about 10 miles and noticed a slight hesitation when rolling on the throttle in high-gear and cruising about 50 MPH. Not good.

This morning I changed the Main Jet from a 127 to a 140. Rode into town (about 12 miles round trip). Hesitation was gone. Filled up with gas to check mileage. 62 miles took 1.94 gallons – 31MPG. So, with the 34-3 Chinese carburetor, I have a 40 Idle Jet and a 140 Main Jet, and the choke disabled.

I'm a happy camper.

Got home and noticed the right front brake caliper was dragging. Crap! It's always something.

If I can transfer the riding video from Wednesday's ride, I'll add it to YouTube for ya'll to see.

Later, Bud...
