    Noticed my tachometer was stuck at 500 RPM, disconnected and reconnected power but did not help. Removed the tachometer from the bike and gently struck it with the palm of my hand. Needle returned to zero. Reinstalled the tach and all now seems ok. Anyone know if there is a better way to reset the zero point? Plastic body seems sealed and no easy way to open.

    Yeah, the lens on mine is glued. I can get the bezel off but not the lens. My caps that hold the needles on both my clocks have fallen off. They jiggle like crazy. The lens stops them from completely falling off but they are definitely off. And scratching the heck out of the lenses. Let me know if you figure anything out.

    Letting a solvent lay in there won't help? Heat?

    Solvent is too scary easily damaged. Heat may work. Good thinking.

    I have a problem where the needle is sitting between the zero and the Norton logo it still works but reads less by the amount it’s sitting off the zero, has anyone else encountered thus problem?
