First of all, I can barely understand this...

Secondly, the tachometer (RPM meter) is influenced by the wires that go into the instrument cluster. When you dropped the bike, it is possible that something inside the cluster got damaged. The first thing I would do is check all the wires that connect into the cluster, and trace them down to their origins throughout the bike, if possible. Some of the wires could be damaged somehow.

If nothing looks damaged, then just buy another cluster with a new tachometer and hopefully that solves the problem.

Re: Something wrong with the RPM meter

I just bought a 2008 ninja 250 about 3 months ago have drove it off and on. However when I purchased it I didn't notice that the speedometer wasn't working. The cable is intact with the front wheel and seems to be undamaged. The odometer works, the rpm gauge works and same with the gas gauge. The only thing that doesn't work is my speedometer. I find it odd that the odometer does and the speedometer doesn't. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks MKC
