Rev counter - lamp failure circuit.
To date I have replaced my rev counter about 4 times due to the all too common lamp failure circuit failing causing the dim glow on (usually) the n/s/r side light and circuit failure.
When it happend again a couple of months ago I linked the n/s and o/s rear side lights, then a couple of weeks later i had to do the same to the front side lights, all was well for a month ot two.
A couple of days ago the lamp failure has started flickering, only going out when I press the brake or turn the lights on.
I've checked and double checked the lights , which are ok, and connections, without success.
I've had enough.
I dont want to buy another rev counter.
What I want to do is change all the side light/brake/indicator lamps to LED and strip out the lamp failure circuit from one of the rev counters I have (then smash the crappy little bits to pieces with a hammer!!!- thats better)
Does anyone know if it can be done?
Can I (armed and dangerous with a soldering iron) do it myself?
Any help would be appreciated.
(If I just remove the lamp failure lamp there remians 12v at the lamps causing the leds to dimly illuminate)
