2010 Bulldog Bagger Speedo issues

Gathering
my speedometer works as it should but my tachometer ring (green lights) only goes to two (2) lights no matter how fast the motor turns. when you turn the key it cycles all the way across so I know the lights work. wires-plus supplied me with a retrofit kit that I had my mechanic install but that problem with the tach persists but the heavier gauge wiring the kit uses has been a Godsend. I think the speedos are cursed.

Curious if anyone found the answer. To me, wiring that never gets messed with, how can it just start acting up? I would think it would be something like the speedo or module or EHC. Electrical things can act up momentary. For example my 04 Chopper the headlight would go out, then come right back on. Bike would shut off sitting at a traffic light, then start right back up. Unfortunately in my case it was the EHC. I guess it never hurts to check your wiring especially if your messing with it. Hope in your case it is a simple fix. Wrote all this because the strong cup of coffee made me do it.
Vibration and rubbing under the tank and the harness in the frame.

I'm still trying to find the answer, took the EHC to Bigdog here in ST. Louis. It would not fit on their test equipment, so they hooked up two harnesses and check to see if everything was powered, which it was, but the kicker is either heat, cold or vibration will make the fail also according to them.

Morning, If the 3 things are making it fail the answer is pretty oblivious. I have Axles ehc replacement from Curtis in my 2010 Bulldog and it seems to be doing the job:oldthumbsup:

Axels, RIP, ESC all good options.

The good thing about Axels is they are plug and play and use the sub D connectors. (super easy install)

The bad thing about Axels is they use the Sub D connectors because they are not sealed.

Could be a cold solder joint inside the speedo.
I thought it could be something like that, but now the tail lights are not working. So I pulled the EHC and sent it to Curtis for testing, I will get back with the results.
