First of all electrical problems on these bikes are hard to diagnose, especially on the computer. I assume you checked all your fuses and wires for any obvious shorts or blown fuses. Sounds like a wire might have melted in the heat and shorted out.Check the wiring from your ECM to the speedo under the gas tank and around the motor to make sure nothing shorted out.
Then if nothing found there is the Speed sensor located on top of the transmission. Remove, clean all debris off of it and reinstall. If that doesn't correct the issue, the sensor may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: 2000 Roadking my speedo works

The problem is with the speedo. The speedo has a "lean switch" that works in conjunction with the turn signal canceller. If the bike does not detect a "lean", the TSC will not cancel the turn signals Resolve the speedo problem and the turn signal problem will go away. As for what's causing the speedo problem, I have no idea other than maybe a loose connection. I've read a LOT of problems with the speedo not working on this forum but since I don't work the bikes built in 2000 and later, I'm afraid I have no experience with the problem and therefore cannot offer any advice.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: have a 2007 fxstb with 200mm rear tire and want to

yes, if you push the new axle in while pulling the old axle out the other side, you can take the old axle completely out and install the backing plate for the axle cover on that side. Then, reverse the procedure and do the other side. But, it's not really necessary to do all this and purchase another axle. If you simply lift the bike until the weight is off the rear tire but it's still on the ground, usually the rear wheel won't go anywhere. You're still going to have to loosen the tension on the rear drive belt though.

Battery getting discharged!!


Of course the electrical items don't work when the battery is out, the battery is the source of all electrical power used in your motorcycle. Discharging within 20 days ... a battery sitting all alone by its self will lose about 1% of its charge daily just because ... it is not a law ... a rule of thumb. Typically, the alternator on a motorcycle is there to charge the battery, (not run the bike) the battery's job is to provide electrical power to the items on your bike, in the amounts needed, at the proper time. Typically, after you start the engine, the alternator has to 'work hard' to get the battery caught up, because of the power removed from the battery by the starter. After that, the alternator just cruises along charging the battery when required and resting when no charging is required. Have you added accent lights to your motorcycle? If yes, the receiver for the remote control operates all the time and will drain your power faster than the 1% per day previously stated.

To overcome this problem (it would appear you are not an every day rider) get yourself a "battery maintainer" a small charger that attaches to your battery via a plug. Plug the maintainer in when you are not riding and your battery will be fully charged every time you want to ride. BTW, if your battery is low or dead and you jump it to get going, you will not necessarily start charging your battery just because the motor is running. Alternators require 12 volts in (from the battery) to get charging power (for the battery) out.

I broke the speedo of my Bulldog 2002 in an accident, and I replace it with a new one( ordered from OEMmotorparts). The new speedo does not make the self test, only for the tachometer and the LCD display...


Normally the speedo will have to be set up for your wheel/tyre size and I assume that information would be supplied whaen you purchased the unit.
Send the supplier an email asking for guidance.

I AM WANTING TO INSTALL DIGI GEAR INDICATOR in need of advice


hi as datatool offer limited information on your bikes wireing , you will have to find your self a wireing diagram for your bike and work out which colour on the machine goes to , speedo , tacho, live, earth, neutrol, the hard part will be teaching the gears as you have to run the machine on a stand in each gear to program the unit, which will be difficult to stabalise the bike, who did you buy the unit from can they not fit it for you, datatool websit gives you a list of aproved fitting centres in you area,

I have a 2001 fxstb harley and while riding all the oil leaked out


No way out but to get the leak plugged before you start the bike again. Check at the drain plug if the leak was a loose fitting or a cross thread. But not to speculate it is bettter that you pour into new oil and start the engine if there is no signs of leak and rev up till the visible signs appear.

Sounds like you have water that is pooled in a connector or in the wiring harness water conducts electricity time to take covers of and expose areas and blow dry with air suspected area where water would settle relays multi plugs check each one for water.

You can't with out braking a couple little parts inside the speedo. You can give it a try I have heard of it being done without any damage. Here in my state it's against the law to do this.

My 2005 harley night train leaking oil from the transmission how do i repair it.


This needs a new gasket normally, unless there has been some impact damage which has cracked the casing(?) Check where the leak is coming from. If it is further in towards the middle of the bike it could be a crack or a seal between the gearbox and primary chaincase. If it is under the chaincase, you need to remove the footrest/boards and remove the chaincase screws, hitting the outer cover with a rubber mallet to break the seal, and taking off the chaincase cover, clean off the old gasket and applying a new one with some silicone sealer. Make sure you drain the oil from the chaincase or you will have a huge mess!
