    Hi, I have a ’95 Ultra (FLHTCU) with a tach issue. As soon as I start the engine, the tach needle will bop up and down for a second and then hit the stop at max rpm – all this at idle. My electrics all seem to be good. I’m not quite sure what to look for next. Appreciate any suggestions you may have…

    2000 sporty, speedo works but tach rarely tries to work ? Does it have a separate ground somewhere or do I have to partially dismantle bike and find and check all connections ? Seems to be a sealed unit, could it be inside ?
