Thanks Charlie, I will take a look at your pictures for the rear brake.The nut that secures the pickup over the cam, is this square sloted nut unique to the mechanical tach drive or is it common to all? I am pretty sure it didn't come with the bike, the pickup and cover were bagged up in a parts box when I got the bike and the nylock nut I used was in the same bag. It does sound like something I could machine up.
The nut for the mechanical drive is unique to the models so fitted. I'm sure you could make one, the hardest part would be the square hole.
Looks great. If I ever do another one, it'll be that blue.
Clearly not a comment on your work..But how do you guys who use mph speedometers, EVER get accustomed to a tachometer with numbers like that ?It never did, still doesn’t and never will make sense to have them so ostensibly similar. Why would they not have marked the face as (for example), 3 for 3000 or 4 for 4000…etc. and have “x 1000” That tach looks so much like a speedo….
Interesting observation Huzo, I agree the near identical face pattern between the two gauges is not a good design. I think that Guzzi used white faces for some of the tachs on the spine frame bikes to differentiate the instruments? I like how some bikes use a different diameters for the gauges as well as different face colours.
Yeah mate..But even the single digit numbers around the perimeter would differentiate the two. Also if you let someone loose on your bike, you might say…“Don’t rev it past 5….” (Meaning 5 x 1000)Not.“Don’t rev it past 50…” (Meaning 50 x 100)But I guess it’s just part of the glorious quirky nature of these things. You would feel bereft if it were not thus.
I have a bigger issue switching between left and right foot shit patterns, my Morini 500 and Laverda 750 are RH shift and the other bikes I have on the road are LH shift. Last summer I lost track of the number of times I was braking with the shift or trying to shift with the brake pedal. The odd thing is I got more used to RH shift bikes and was messing up the conventional shift / brake bikes. I got stuck at the traffic lights last summer wondering why my BMW K bike would not shift into gear as I stabbed away with my right foot on the brake, my buddy was killing himself laughing as I struggled through a traffic light, horns honking until he yelled OTHER FOOT!
You need a Convert to act as a "reset bike". I find that if I ride my Convert in between right-foot-shift bikes and "normal" ones, it's easier to adapt for some reason. Maybe because the Convert requires little footwork.
