I had the same thing on an 08 883C and on it's first run too. Cause was metal scurf lodging in gearbox speedo sensor, disabling it. Tacho kept going as it's separate. Your engine warning light may also show. I suggest check your oiltank level, and if OK, ride home and arrange to change gearbox oil. This may fix it. If not the sensor can be changed for a small price.

2003 xl 1200 c sportster speedometer repair


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. Please visit the website below for more information and good luck.

The tachometer on my 2001 Sportster 1200 suddenly stopped working - is there a sensor that went bad or could it simply be the tachometer itself ? How can I determine the problem ?


Check the wires going to your coil. There may be a pink wire going to one side of the coil. If that wire is loose, your tach may not work. Also check the power wire, usually orange.

Good Luck
Steve

Tachometer needle jumps to the high post position at normal revs and flips back and forth for no reason.


The tacho signal is taken off the coil, not off the engine - I would suspect a dodgy electrical connection or dodgy tacho
