Hi Anonymous, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs.

SOURCE: when I ride my 2000 fatboy my speedometer doesn't

Try inside the tach on the connector. But also remove your speed sensor on the transmission and clean it. They pick up metal chips from the trans and short out. Also, HD had a bunch of bad speedos around your year. They replaced them for free. Doubtful they will replace yours at this late date. You might end up buying a new speedo.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 FLSTC

I believe the sensor is likely bad or could be loose. Possibly a bad wire to the speed sensor. It is common from what I have seen before.

2002 flstfi fatboy. Speedometer and odomerter stopped working. Lights on speedometer and odom. do work. Blinker auto turn off stopped working as well at same time. What are the possible problems?


Remove the speed sensor at the left rear of the trans housing and clean off any metal shavings on it. Shavings get caught on the magnet and won't let the sensor read properly.

Cheapest scenario is to change the transmission filter. That is if it is an automatic. When you do this, most transmissions have a magnet in the transmission pan. If yours has one I would check it for excessive metal shavings or worse metal chunks.

How much oil does the primary case hold on a 2000 harley fatboy 88 twin cam


It should hold between 36 and 44 ounces. Stand the bike as straight up as you can and still be safe. Remove the derby cover and drain the old oil. Refill the primary with oil until the oil level is right at the bottom of the outer clutch drum. If you fill it too high, your clutch will drag and you' will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Speedometer Doesn't Work ..


Yes. You also want to check your alternator. Weird as it sounds our electronic dash on a Lincoln had us doing 55mph at a stop. It was the alternator and you may need to check your backup generator for clean power. There is some kind of electronic term regarding "Sine" waves, that apparently matters alot. Good Luck
