i have a 2001 748 and lately the tach is jumping up and down. It does it when im just cruising and sometimes when im just reving it. Do u guys think i need to just lube the cable or an electrical problem?

I've heard other stories of the tach jumping on 748's. Every so often something will catch my eye, and I think the tach jumps a few 100 rpms, but nothing substantial yet. I think its another Ducati gremlin.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all late model Ducatis have an electrical driven tach... no cables, just wires. Check the connections one might be loose... A screwy tach is one of the Ducati quirks....

i had this problem on my 916. it was just a short in the wire and easily fixed. take it to a good ducati shop and they'll fix it up no problem.

Yes, I have the same problem on my 2001 996. Dealer replaced the tach twice, computer once, checked grounds and a few other things. Then they were informed by Ducati that it is a common problem to the superbikes, they did not have a fix, and told me in an email (Ducati USA) that they don't feel there is anything else they need to do about it. Mine jumps and/or sticks as much as 500rpm's in the 2000 to 4000 range, and has been doing it since new. Nice, huh?

The tacho on my 2000 748 dropped off completely a few times. I just checked the connections behind the cluster and it never reappeared.
