My '04 Fatboy speedo does the same thing. I leave it in the sun for a while, the fog evaporates. Because your bike may still be under warranty, there's a chance the factory will replace your speedo.

    When I took it in for a recall issue, I mentioned it but the lens wasn't foggy then and they said they would not replace it. The following weekend, it got foggier than ever. Thing is, I don't ride in the rain and I rarely wash the bike. Thanks for the tip, after a few hours in the sun it does clear up. This would not be an issue except I have a peanut tank and need to watch the mileage or run out of gas.

SOURCE: speedometer cable

First: you unscrew the cable housing assembly from the back of the speedomiter housing.

Second: you pull the speedomiter cable from the housing.

If the cable is broken inside the housing you must unscrew the housing from the spedomiter adaptor on the front axle,. at this point you should be able to pull the broken end from the adaptor with a pair of pliersif you can't pull it at this point you will have to pull the front axle and take the adaptor out and try to remove the broken end.

I hope this helps.

Different fuse. Check the fuse block located just behind your battery. Just pull the cover off and slide out the main fuse block, the very bottom one is blown if the starter wont turn over.

How do I fix my stuck needle in speedometer on a 96 Harley sportster 1200


The speedometer is not repairable. You simply replace it. There are places that specialize in "restorations" of speedometers but they mostly work on original equipment speedometers for collector's grade restorations and are VERY expensive. It's cheaper to simply replace the speedo. You may want to record the mileage on the bike and you'll probably have to note on the title that the mileage shown on the new speedo is not correct when you sell the bike.

Good Luck
