I have an '83 VT750 and have just restored it, but I'm still having trouble with the tach. The thermostat is working and the tach kicks in every once in a while but just cuts off. The connections are clean and I even tried replacing the tach...same thing happens. Any ideas?!

Can't recall right now where it was, but there was a very good thread on here about this, and detailed instructions on how to repair it. Mine does the same thing, it's one of the quirks of our bikes. It's fixable, if you're good with soldering (which I'm not). So I ignore the tach, working or not ;)

I just repaired two tachs using this process and it worked great. Read the instructions carefully. There were a few things I did differently with my repair (oiled the tach axel, no jb weld) Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
