Hi Anonymous, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. 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. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.

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: when does a speedometer stop on harley davison

Since the speeometer is electronic and gets it's "pulses" from the transmission, it stops whenever the transmission stops turning inside. Now, if one got into a situation in which he applied the rear brake hard enough to lock the rear wheel thereby causing the engine to stall, the speeometer would stop at that moment even if the bike didn't. This is my opinion.

SOURCE: How does the gasket of a 2000 harley davidson

I'm really not sure what you're asking. There is no gasket in the intake valve. Now, if you are talking about the intake manifold gasket at the heads, you need to look at the plates that are on the intake manifold themselves.

There is a plate on each runner of the intake. These plates are marked with a "R" for Rear and a "F" for Front. One side of them is flat with the other side having a "counterbore". The "counterbore" goes towards the head with the gasket sliding up on the manifold so that it's shape fits up into the counterbore. When the plates are tighened down, they flatten out the gaskets and form a seal against the head and the manifold.

Now, you must align the manifold when you put it on. Do not just put it on and tighten it up. Install the manifold but leave the bolts loose. Then install a new carburetor seal on the carb end of the manifold and install the carburetor into the manifold. Bolt the backing plate of the air filter to the carburetor and the heads. No need to connect the fuel line or cables because you are simply aligning the manifold at this point. With the carb and rear plate of the air filter bolted in it's place, then tighten the manifold bolts. This insures that you will not have a vacuum leak at the carburetor seal by aligning the manifold with the carburetor and air filter. I hope this answers your question. Good Luck and ride carefully.

Why did my speedometer stop working on my 2000 fatboy harley davidson motorcycle


Hi Audrey, the vast majority of speedometer issues is caused by the speed sensor and or the wiring. On Sportsters the sensor is located on top of the engine case behind the rear cylinder, on big twins it's located on the right side of the transmission case between the starter end cap and the transmission top cover. Remove the bolt/screw that secures the sensor and lift the sensor out of the case. Inspect it for damage and contamination, if there appears to be no damage wipe the end of the sensor clean and reinstall, you can go for a short quick test ride to see if the speedo is working. If the issue still exists grab your test light and unplug the harness connector from the sensor, check for power (red wire) and ground (black wire) continuity coming from the speedo, there is also the connector that plugs into the speedometer, also look for corroded, broken or loose pin/sockets. If everything checks out OK then replace the speed sensor.

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.

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.
