Hello, my name is***** see that your question has been here for a few days. This is because the answer is bad news. What you have is a bad tach and it will need to be replaced. These Yamaha gauges can be costly, so if the engine is still running fine, and you can keep an eye on the oil tank, you would be fine to run it for a bit.
