It's possible some wires have rubbed through inside the fairing. The usual spot to check in near the two silver inner fairing brackets. While your in there, check the connections at both the radio and the speedo.

Speedometer quit working i checked the sensor and it came out clean


My speedo went out while riding. It would bounce up and down then stopped completely. The odometer still had power but would register no miles. A local mechanic suggested to check the battery cables. While this seemed odd to me, I checked and found them loose. After tightening them up the speedo and odometer worked fine. Apparently the voltage connection to the speedo was hit and miss. So far everything is working great.

Tried installing a new stereo system and had it in and going but the speedo wouldnt work so took out the stereo and it would work again then tired replacing fuse in stereo as it had blown and tried once...


your best bet is to buy a chiltons book for your car from an auto parts store. also i might add: reconnect your wires to the factory plugg you cut off and buy a wiring harness from a car stero installer or radio shack for your car it will automaticaly adapt your original harness (which your having trouble with) to a standard wiring setup for an aftermarket stereo. then its all about maching colors :)

2005 Ultra Classic ,Speedo Cuts Out Which In Turn Cuts Out Cruise Control, And Turn Signals Wont Shut Off,And At Idle Bike Engin Will Stall,But Will Start Up . This Is An Intermiten Problem


I believe the turn sigs, speedo and cruise are all controlled in part at least by a module under the fairing. It may need replacement or it could just be a loose wire. Sounds more like a loose wire plug or bundle, if intermittent.

I've got a 1988 Dodge Ram and I know nothing about Car Stereos


go down to a electronics shop (future shop or best buy) and they will have a connector that will fit the original plug. Some splicing will be required but its all color coded with the deck
hope this helps

Speedo/electrical


Well, it sounds like the loose cable goes back into the transmission -- that would be your speedometer cable.

This cable would not cause electrical problems, but something pulled it from the transmission and may have, at the same time, pulled an electrical wire loose. I would check the transmission and surrounding area for loose wires.
