Electrical Problem - Erratic tacho, lights & a little misfire?
Hi all, new member with a little issue that's just started...
So I'll be riding along and suddenly the tacho either goes dead or starts bouncing around like crazy flicking randomly from zero to redline, etc. at the same time the indicators seem to be affected, flashing an erratic pattern when I put them on (I think, hard to tell). Also when this is happening the engine seems to “skip” a little, especially if I'm revving from idle.
This problem seems to come on randomly then cure itself for a bit, then start up again. If I give the bike a good rev out through the gears it still seems to run okay.
What do you recon? Faulty coil / CDI / loose ground?
It's a 2011 that's pretty stock. Going to give it a going over tomorrow.
UPDATE: Just rode home from work, it was fine for the first half hour then I flicked the high beam switch and it started to mess up again with the crazy tacho! I flicked between high and low beam and the problem came on and went away with it, weird... Grrrrr... I put a new headlight bulb in on the weekend and it was fine before that. Maybe I screwed something up?
