Yes, it needs to be of a certain type. It's just that I'm no longer 100% sure what type that would be :) I suspect that tachos meant for older cars won't work. The tacho I bought (German made NOVA...

Clutch pressure booster check

Hi,

I'm currently doing 15000km service (only ~13000km in the clock but I'm doing it now so that I don't have to worry about it in the middle of the riding season) and as part of it I intend to do...
