Best way to diagnose tacho?

Hi guys,



I have a 2001 Honda Nx4 and the tachie ain't working. It's from a broken cable, it it comes back to life intermittently as i turn the handlebars left to right. My headlight suffered the same fate but I managed to find the break in the headlamp cable and solder it back together.



Now I can't find where the break is for the tacho cable, neither do I even know which cable if for the tacho.

I am unable to get a service manual for the Nx4 (impossible to find), let alone a wiring diagram.



What's the best way to go about solving this issue? Does Honda use standard colours for their wires on their bikes (I.e. Headlamp seems to be universally black/red). Also, I don't want to rip the whole wiring harness out to find the break/kink in the cable, what is the best way to fix this problem?



Thanks in advanced.

Wiggle wires one at a time until the tach stops working.

Or just jump them out one at a time till you find the bad wire then fix it.
