Default yamaha tach

i posted this in the boaters forum but figured i might get more responses here. i have a 2002 f225 with an analog tachometer. the needle doesn't drop below 1000. it stays at 1000 even when i start it. the normal idle should be around 700 or so, but it still shows 1000. i believe it's accurate once i get over 1000rpm's. top end is showing around 5800 or so, which from what i've read is pretty accurate. with the quietness of the 4 stroke and "extra" noise from wind/waves/music, it would be nice to be able to look at the tach to see if it's running. (i know, i can look at the voltmeter) there must be some type of adjustment for this???

my tach for 225/4 is obviously wrong - shows idle at 2k and top rpm when WOT goes way past 7k. ever find a fix??

Are you sure it's your tach, and not your prop?
If I were you I would get it checked out, pronto.
I sure wouldn't be running with an indication of over 7K.
Best of luck....

Nobody seems to have an answer for your problem so why not scrap the analog tach and get a Yamaha? What does the manufacturer of the analog tach have to say about the problem??
