    • yup. my tacho, after idle stopped working. had to tune by ear, and feel. not fun but I managed. while riding I have to listen more carefully. I see working replacements for 30-60 all the time. probably best to do a plug n' pay and call it a day

    • lastly, I'm proud I did without my tach. I can ride without a speedo, never really had a 100% working one ;) but a tachometer is important to me.

    • I have a 1969 triumph trophy 500, had to send the Speedometer off to get it rebuilt, aw those British, cost me a little over $500 and that was 10 years ago.

    • I don't have any

    • When I fix mine this winter I will convert to Led. Simple set up.

    • Leds are way to go with our charging system

    • Where do you get led bulbs

    • I have converted my other bikes, not had the 450 long but for the gauges if I can't find them I will make them.

    • I got my Leds online from a company called Superbright Leds. Leds of all types & also diode kits for the signal lights on our old bikes. Cheap & fast delivery & the led lights in the instruments are a BIG improvement over stock.

    • wow! that is crazy, sorry.

    • ha ha ha. I don't ride at night so no gauge bulbs are needed...

    • Terry Brockwell but Smiths gauges are costly

    • Jeff Alexander I dont ride at nite either, but I am one of those that like eveything to work

    • Yes the British treat them like a fine watch, and they do look good Jeff Alexander

    • I went LED on tail and head light. Great for the cb 450 charging system.
