Have you looked in your headlight bucket
Most of these electrics just "unplug" from one another, but then those leads may be taped together later on the line.



The way these bikes are I'd be careful about just cutting wires. Someone who's been there done that should be here soon, with a more appropriate answer for you.



Welcome.

Your tach connects to the motor behind the rad. A small set screw holds it in position. Sometimes the internal gear may have worn, causing failure, or possibly you have a broken tach cable?

Mine has done the same when I got it, just order a new tach cable there pretty cheap on ebay and is an easy fix the bolt that goes to the motor is a 10mm and if you use a 1/4 inch drive with about an 8 inch extension with a swivle it makes the process alot easier just from a guy thats been there and done that then you should be all good.

There's a plug that connects all that stuff to the bike. But if you unplug it you will also lose the lights for the speedometer. And if you want some lights they are just simple power wires to a big spiderweb ground wire.
