Thank you very much for taking the time and the willingness to share this information. Very helpful.
Which brings me to my question. Both gauges are shot. This was a new to me bike 2 yrs ago, and hadn't been ridden much. They started screaming 60 miles into a trip, and had to be disconnected. To make a long story short, I bought a used set of gauges, same year (82) on eBay. They look pretty good, but I want to avoid this problem. Is there a procedure to get some lube in there, or should they be disassembled, cleaned and lubed? Are you still doing these repairs?
