Recently I've noticed that occasionally my headlights will flicker. But it does it so quickly that I had convinced myself that it was just a trick of my mind. Then this morning I was going about 50mph in a 45, I saw a cop, did a quick speed check to make sure I wasn't about to be pulled over, and to my suprise, I was going and indicated 80mph! But only for about one second. My speedo blipped from my actual speed (~50) to ~80 and back down to 50 in about a second. Quickly enough that I again thought, "I've been eating too many coco puffs or something." But then again maybe I havent been... So is there anything that might make my lights flicker and speedo blip?

An electrical system that is not regulating its voltage properly would do that. Check the output of the generator and the output of the R/R and see if they're within spec.

Last night, I came off the throttle... my headlight completely turned off for about a second, and then came back on AND my fuel light came on for about 4 seconds (with only about 20 miles on tank). I think this is only happening when I go off throttle. I dunno what the problem is, the engine never dies or even sputters.

Bad harness connection? Somethings getting unplugged or.....
