1994 Sporster 1200 here.. bike got dumped and old speedo cable got pinched and broke. Replaced cable (runs off front wheel hub), now if I'm simply pushing the bike, the speedometer moves like I'm driving...


the inside is damaged. The speedometer works by a magnet spinning close to a metal disc that is attached to the needle. Yours is likely touching and the magnet is actually driving the needle as though it is connected. You need to send it to a speedo repairer for repair and recalibration.

Need wiring diagram for moto-detail after market speedo for Harley Davidson Sporster


Not being familiar with the unit you're talking about the only suggestion I can give is to see if the manufacturer has a website at which you may be able to download a set of "Installation instructions".

Good Luck

Speedo stopped working and an amber light came on check eng lamp


You don't say what year your bike is, but I know a lot of guys with newer sporsters 06 and up have had similar complaints. The problem usually goes away once every thing drys out. You might want to try putting a little dialitic grease on the fuses and buses.

95 sporster speedometer


The timing of the plug change is probly chance Your speedo is a cable run from your front axle spacer between fork tube and Bering a spark plug or a wire could only put out the speedo light not affect the speed sensors caus there isn't one one a 95 sporty I only know cause I took off every thing on my chopper but headlamp tail lamp and starter switch and I had to make a custom spacer to take the place of my speed sensor slash Bering after I ditched my dash years ago on my 93 evo sporty

Taking off the speedo?


The older Harley speedos are driven by a cable and can easily be replaced by any type of cable driven speedo. I assume your Sporster has the tank mounted dash (my 72 is this way), it's fairly simple too unbolt the dash and remove the speedo. If you're wanting to replace yours with a newer (electronic pick-up) that could be quite a project. Hope this helps
