Missing tach needle

It just up and disappeared?

It was there...then it wasn't! Haha.

I took the enclosure apart and couldn't find it.

Question is...is there any place to find one of these? Could I make it? Possibly source it out of another gauge?

Opinions would be welcomed.

(04 RR if it matters)

Thanks!

Maybe you revved your bike so high the tach needle jumped to another dimension ;)

i agree with CLX... you have the chance to get something really cool as a tach-needle.

little mini toy sword
little mini dildo (if that your thing)
little mini fake chain
get one that reads "just right" when its straight up and down

etc....

Mickey mouse hands like the old school watches!

In all seriousness, I wouldn't be changing if for anything other than a stock needle. Chances are anything else you put in is going to weigh more which will interfere with the readout. This is true for cars and can't imagine it would be any different for our bikes. I had heard that even a layer of paint on the needle was enough to bugger it up.

Hi, I was interested if anyone came up with a fix? I bought a 2003 600rr that is also missing the tach needle. The guy said it fell off but I'm not positive the needle is actually in the housing. I'm gonna try to take it apart but if there is no needle what else can I do? The rest of the cluster works fine so I don't want to buy a whole new cluster.
Thanks!
