    83 tachometer

    No never did. It only screams about every 7 - 10 miles. Kinda gets me awake when I'm day dreaming on the bike. When I changed out the 80 fuse box to a 1500 fuse box, I hooked the od light to the wire for the 3rd gear instead of the high gear. Haven't fixed that yet.

    DIY Video's

    Negative battery cable

    Yes only it goes behind the triangle. The wire runs up the frame and attaches on the top bolt. Out of sight out of mind.

When you get back check to see what you actually used AND would have been nice to have had. After 3-4 trips you'll get your pattern...

    How to fix this

    The bubble will move when pushed. It returns to the way it wants in a minute or two. I still have some pinstripe left so I may have to redo it all. I was hoping for not so much work to fix it.
