Tightening the gauge cup screw pinches the piece of fuel line and no more wobble!!! I trimmed the excess fuel line hanging out of the opening and now you can't tell it is there.
I am in the process of moving back to the states and while I was cleaning out the garage and disposing of the needless detritus acquired whilst bike wrenching, I came across a simple solution to my shaky tach. I cut a piece of fuel line about 3/4 inch long and slid it between the housing and the bracket from the dash. It fits perfect in the slot below the tach and blends in so well that it is not even noticeable while sitting on the bike. It is short enough that the sides of the opening in the tach housing hold it in place and it fixed my shaky tach issue....
