Re: Starting problems & Race bike

The reason the rev ounter doesn't work is because it is triggered from the left coil so it won't work until there are sparks. To be more specific, it's triggered by a feed from the 'ground, low-voltage, side of the coil. Thus, tacho doesn't work = no signal to that coil, and is an almost certain in...

Re: paint colour name

Hi Richard,Thanks for the reply from yourself and from the other members,the reason i asked what colour was is because the brake fluid leaked from the master cylinder seal and took the paint off the right hand fuse cover and part of the fuel tank cover so i need to get it sprayed.Thanks Paul
