The digital unit that I have sounds quite similar. I had to put a ferrite bead on the wire coming from the sensor. It was going crazy because of the electrical noise generated from ith ignition system. It seems solid now. When I said that I doubted that My analog and digital units would never see thousands of miles. It was the bike and moter that I doubted not the insturments. I'll be quite satisfied if I can get 800 or so Mi. of this cheap little motor. However with just 200 mi. it is performing well.
