may of been posted previously but Ive just repaired three FJ1200 instrument clusters with bad tacho's all three started working intermittently and when giving the instruments a "whack" they came good for a short time, but all failed again. All connections/earths were checked with no difference. Repairs consists of pulling instruments out, removing tacho assy and replacing 1000uF 6.3volt electrolytic capacitor...in all 3 bikes this capacitor had gone leaky (there are 3 capacitors in the tacho, best to do all 3)..cost about 20 cents!...hope this is of help to someone

  • Thank you

  • I should of taken pictures....you do not have to remove the needle from the tach...simply remove the whole unit, un-solder the wires (red and black) to the meter movement, then the circuit board of electronics behind the tach clips out....change the 3 capacitors on the board...5 mins work

  • Very handy info

  • Very handy info, for sure. I have a 1990 FJ 1200 that has needed a rap from a knuckle to wake up for the last couple years. Good to know there is a fix for the issue.

  • Thanks
