    RSV Rev Counter problems...Help!

    Hi my name is alan and im a new member.

    I have problems with RSV rev counter, the rev counter is 1000 rpm out and i have put it in to a garage and the advise the garage gave me was new one required.

    Thats fine but:

    1) A new instrument cluster is 450 from aprilia

    2) A second hand one is 150 which is fine but has old bike mileage on it, does anybody know how i can clock the new instrument cluster to match my existing mileage?

    Cheers
    Alan

    what year bike is it mate, when i got my 2001 rsv the rev counter worked but was 4000rpm out, i ended up taking the clocks apart(simple enough job) and sliding the needle off the spindle and putting it back on at the correct position. hope this helps.

    I think there was another suggestion,(search rev counter) try disconnecting the battery for a few seconds to see if it corrects itself.

    Not sure if this is the problem you are having but mine was stuck at 4000 RPM. I unhooked the bike from the battery for about 2 minutes and hooked it back up and it then reset the RPM Needle back to Zero.

    Hope that works for you too.
