I would remove the speed sensor on the transmission and clean it..Just wipe it of. It's probably loaded with metal shavings. If cleaning doesn't work then you'll probably have to replace it. I own a 2000 FLHTC and I have to remove and clean mine at least 2 times a year. As for the engine light being on. The engine light should shut off within 5 to 8 seconds of the bike being started. You need to run the diagnostics through your speedometer. If you don't know how then you need to buy a service manual for the bike so you can do the diags and look up the codes.

    Pulled it and no metal shavings, which is a good thing! Bike runs like a scalded hog! Will replace the sensor, screwed up my stereo system and have to pull gas tank and faring to replace it. One continuous cable going thru the wiring harness

SOURCE: while riding all lights started to flash engine run erratic bike died of death bike will not start

Start with charging and load testing the battery. Then test the stator, to test the stator on the bottom of the right down tube is the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. With a multi meter, read the voltage from the stator, I forget the exact values but as you rev the motor the voltage should climb if it dosn't your stator is bad. If the stator is good take a reading again with the motor running at the battery cables, again I forget the exact value but you should have a steady reading at the battery, if it isn't and fluctuates it is bad.

If it was stored with fuel in the tank:

1. The fuel filter should be replaced
2. You may to replace the fuel delivery system coming out of the tank
3. Remove the plug in the carb and reset the idel mixture

I just bought one store for 6 years - my issue is the bike will n ot idel but runs on the road like a bat out hell.

SOURCE: While out riding my HD 1200C, the check engine

Those engine lights come on because something is causing an engine code, the code can only be read by the HD dealer with their digital tech program. They plug your bike into it and it displays the error code, they may be able to delete the code and it might never come back again or there might be a real problem.

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.

The primer pump light on my 2004 ultra


I think you mean the engine management light. I do not know of a 'pump primer light' on any Harley. If this light is coming on when driving, and staying off when idling, then you have a problem which needs investigating. Golden rule, red light on - stop motor or damage iminent. Orange light on - needs looking at as soon as possible. check for historic DTC codes using speedometer and repost with these or bring bike to dealer.

2000 FXD super glide..47k miles..riding at highway speed my battery got super hot,tach stopped,speedometer stopped and then engine stopped running.i can not touch battery box without burning my self.s


Check the regulator. It sounds as if it has packed in, when the engine is at idle the alternator output is low, but when revved it will be higher, the regulator controls the top end of the voltage range. Also check the battery connections are tight and free from corrosion.

Did you put a new battery in it? If not have it load tested and replace if needed. Check the grounds and make sure they are clean and tight. Check the stator by going to the plug on the right front down tube, with a muti meter take a reading with the bike running on the side that goes back toward the engine, I forget the values but you should get a reading at idle and then as you rev the motor the reading should climb. If all of the above check out OK the problem will be your voltage regulator.

I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out
