Gauge Needles sticking.. im finally sick of it.

Its been a year since i got my indiglo gauges.
well, im quite sick of it sticking now.

I AM GOING TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!





fix it... finally.

I saw a picture last time someone posted...
it was something about fixing needles that sticks.. because some indiglos are piss-poor designed and it makes needles stick.

it was by using a fork or something.
but also heard that if you somehow mess it up, needles won't function properly at all..

anyone knows know-how abuot this?

thanks

this is what I did. I got sand paper and shave under the needle. I also use double side tape for the indiglow. make sure they stay down. ever since that, I have no trouble with my gauges.

I used a fork and very gently slid it under the needle and proped it up. It made a snapping noise at first and scared the Shia out of me. It worked well, probably moved a mm or so.

Disclaimer, I am not a profeesional, I can barely tie my shoes. However I did make the needles clear the gauge face. Be careful and you could do it to.

Thats a good excuse if you get a speeding ticket?

At first i tried using double side tape but that made the needles stick so i placed some small drops of super glue around some of the edges of the gauges never had a problem since. Oh and did u guys have to cut ur gauges to fit them through the needle?
