There's a rattle can mat black one running around Sale with $1000 on the screen. If it can be cleaned up like this it would be a good buy.

It runs  like a dream .Most of the time was taken up by fairing repairs and colour matching .Whole bike was stripped to motor in frame only .All bolts
polished ,front end oil ,grease ect . Tank dent LHS repaired .Yet to have a good ride as no  rego.
Anyone know how a tacho works , where does the ecu get the reading from ?

I'd expect it would be picking up from a coil Gus.

I'm looking at the VFR750F manual.


On page 18-13 it provides a simple test which would be a good starting point.
Measure DC volts between Yellow/Green and Green wires going into tacho.


As well as that, a good disconnect/contact cleaner spray/re-connect of all connectors would not go astray


Gus, PM me if you want to discuss by phone and I will call you.

It's looking great Gus. That seat needs the black treatment to break up the red, but other than that I would be happy to ride that around.

These look stacks better than the vfr 800 I reckon. Love the single sided swinger

I have power going to the tacho so my guess the tacho got fried when the r\rec  cooked itself as apparently all vfr models did . Mine is not (r\r) original
so it makes sense . Time to visit Chris the instrument repairer.

Now THAT is nice Gus! The wheels look factory. I'd be happy with a weekend toy like that.

What are the holes in your side cover under the seat ? .............................Must admit I preferred the red seat to the black .

Honda reg\rec unite have a habit of going kaput and taking a lot of expensive electric equipment with it .A lot of people think it due to heat .It has been replaced on this bike but
took the tacho out with it I suspect (as it doesn't work )

The holes are to get some cool air to the r\r behind it .I'd rather that than a $600 ecu bill .

I suppose a few holes is a small price to pay in that case  Very Happy

Thumbs up for the black seat. Way too much red before. Did you use a vinyl dye?
