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

If you are looking for an owners manuel the best bet is to buy one at a dealer, there is no screaming eagle package. Harley has never made a CVO Sportster.

I would guess stale gasoline or fuel. Try fresh fuel in the tank. If this doesn't clear the problem, you could need to have your carburetor or fuel injection system cleaned. I'm not even sure if they put fuel injection on Sportsters since I don't work on fuel injected bikes. I mostly work on the older bikes like Panheads, Shovelheads, Evos. Not too many Sportsters but have worked on a lot of Ironhead Sportsters. Try the fuel first. It's a cheap fix. Hope it works for you. Good luck with the knee replacement. My wife had one knee replaced and it works great.

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

Under power my tachometer jumps and the speedometer goes dead on my 2003 sportster 1200.


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.
