Good day guys,
I was out on the R1 (2001 model) on Sunday and i realised that my tacho needle started spiking. I was just riding sitting at around 4000rpm and you can see the needle jumping up to say around 7000-8000rpm. The bike was not revving though (seems like just a signal being sent).
Just later on after I stopped at a meeting point for about 30mins and when I hopped on the bike and turned the key... Nothing, dead. Switched the bike off and on another 2 times and it all came back on. It was a full power out as even the clock reset itself. Left for the ride and the tacho starting spiking again. After about 50kms or so the power (electric) started going and coming (even the dash was switching off and on) and I decided to pull over as the bike wasn;t running well. Took the seat off and checked the terminals, to check for a loose contact and all seemed ok. Decided to play it safe and rode back home, but this time with no issue at all.
