speedo clock
« on: 15:09, Wed 30 May 2007 »
hi    :D


can anyone please tell me what revs their renny is doing at 30mph and again at 70mph?

my speedo hasnt been working to great for quite a while, but the other day when i took the dash to bits and got the clocks out and actually took the speedo right out, i found a little screw looking like thing just on the side of the speedo, ive turned it round about half a turn and the speedo is reading better than it was, but since i got so used to driving with one that dont work right, i have no idea what 30mph or 70mph feels like lol, so not sure if its reading right or not. been trying to get someone to come out for a hack so i could follow them to find out if its correct or not but no one has been about.

be really greatfull of a little point in the right direction.

cheers

Ok, here it is:

30 mph = around 1800 rpm in 4th
70 mph = around 3000 rpm in 5th

It's far from accurate, my clocks are fooling around too, but somewhere near this should be ok. :wink:

hi

thanks for ya info.
yeah most renny clocks dont read right but hopefully shall be near to ok now. thanks again.

think the rev counter is a bit funny on my car to, as the bloke before me had put some white dial covers on but didnt do a good job really. think he just pulled the needles off and stuck them back on (not good).

i brought a new gauge style rev counter and seems alot better than the one on the dash, just hope its not dodgy wiring rather than dodgy clocks lol.
need a rolling road or something to check if its ok or not, or a big expensive multi meter that does these things lol

anyway enough bable now

thanks
