Introduction: Clean and Lubricate a Tachometer Cable

In this instructable video, I attempt to fix a bouncing tachometer needle by cleaning and lubricating the tachometer cable on my Honda Nighthawk CB450SC motorcycle. The tachometer would bounce at both idle and at speed.


  1. Tools and Parts Cleaning Spray
  2. Silicone Lubricant
  3. Socket Wrench

After putting it back on, the bouncing was reduced.
